GA4 Migration & Setup
GA4 is the next generation of Google Analytics and has been developed to be less reliant on cookies and offer a future-proofed predictive, privacy-focused platform.
The impact of GDPR and CCPA, the change in how browsers collect data, and user demand for more data control and transparency, have contributed to the birth of the new Google Analytics platform.
The major difference between the two is a change in tracking. While UA was session-based tracking, GA4 is built for user-based tracking. This allows you to track individual users even if they are accessing your app or website from multiple devices.
GA4 <> GTM
We use the recommended Google Tag Manager (GTM) setup method for all GA4 integrations. The key benefit of utilizing GTM for GA4 implementation is the ease and efficiency it brings to managing tags and events on your website. With GTM, you can effortlessly add, modify, and control GA4 tracking codes without directly editing your website’s source code. Saving time and effort while ensuring accurate and consistent tracking. GTM’s flexibility and scalability also enable you to adapt to evolving tracking needs and seamlessly integrate other marketing and analytics tools.

GA4 data layers are structured sets of data that provide a standardized way to pass information from a client’s website or app to Google Analytics 4 (GA4). Data layers act as a bridge, allowing businesses to track custom events and send specific data to GA4 for analysis.
By utilizing data layers, businesses can easily track custom events and pass relevant data to GA4 for detailed analysis. This setup provides a standardized and efficient way to collect and leverage event-specific data, enabling businesses to gain valuable insights and make data-driven decisions for optimizing their website or app performance.
