Get ready for Google Analytics 4

Senest redigeret:

Are you ready to upgrade from Google Analytics 3 to Google Analytics 4? This guide is tailored for those already familiar with Tag Manager part 1. 

Why switch to Google Analytics

Google Analytics er den primære tracking af dine brugere og derfor et godt udgangspunkt for analyser og markedsføring på din hjemmeside – også kaldet re-marketing.

Google Analytics is your primary tool for tracking user interactions, making it an indispensable resource for analysis and marketing on your website — commonly known as re-marketing.

Google Analytics 3 has been phased out, and the associated data is no longer available. To safeguard your historical insights, we urge you to transition to Google Analytics 4 immediately.

How to Migrate Your Data

This guide builds on the assumption that you're familiar with using Tag Manager part 1, specifically with Stephan’s existing configurations for transferring data from OF to Tag Manager. You might find our related webinar helpful.

3. Modify tags   

Some tags need tweaking to function correctly:

  1. GA4 Confirguration Tag: Enter your Measurement ID from your GA4 property by navigating to workspace --> tags --> GA4 Configuration --> Measurement ID.
  2. GA4 OF Succes Event: Assign a trigger, usually the same as the "GA event success". It should at least be linked to the "OF thank you page (success)".
  3. GA4 Event - Transaction Ready: Set the trigger to "OF thank you page (success)".

  1. Navigate to Configure
  2. Then DebugView
