In the context of digital marketing and web analytics, trend lines are plotted on a chart to show the general direction and rate of change of a metric over time.

Trend lines are typically used to identify patterns and trends in data and to forecast future values of a metric based on those trends. Trend lines can identify upward trends, downward trends, or periods of stagnation.
