  • Campaign Name is a descriptor used within Google Analytics to identify and differentiate individual marketing campaigns. It is a component of UTM (Urchin Tracking Module) parameters that are added to URLs to track the performance of various marketing efforts.


The Campaign Name is a crucial element in digital marketing analytics, allowing marketers to assign specific names to their campaigns for tracking purposes in Google Analytics. This naming facilitates the aggregation and analysis of data from different sources, mediums, or strategies under a unified label, enabling a clear assessment of each campaign’s effectiveness.
