[Experiment] New "Views from Outside Twitch" Chart on your Discovery Page
We are testing a new chart on your Discovery page in the new Analytics navigation called "Views from Outside Twitch" (Analytics>Viewers) where you can visualize and learn which outside sources your viewers came to your stream from. This chart allows a streamer to see, at a glance, how viewer trends from external sources change over time. You can also toggle off and on the sources in the legend at the bottom of the graph to get a better view of the sources you want.
This chart will give you better insight into which sources are most successful for your channel so that you can continue to promote your stream there.
You may see a survey when accessing this page, and we encourage you to complete it, as it helps us learn more about why you visited this page and whether it was helpful/easy to understand. Additionally, please feel free to leave feedback here on UserVoice.
I like the metrics broken down, it's easier to see what to focus on and though I'm not an affiliate, it's even more important.
Is there a way we could augment a URL we share to include some kind of source parameter, so that the analytics could provide more detail?
I'm imagining a case similar to how ecommerce businesses include a source to the links they send out to various platforms to help them understand more about which platforms provide the best value.
For reference, I am thinking about the UTM parameters https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTM_parameters
