Google Analytics 4 Resources
What is GA4
Google Analytics 4 or GA4 is the newest version of Google Analytics to support the measurement needs of your website or app. The new update includes features to efficiently track user engagement, behaviour, and customer journey. GA4 has enhanced integrations with Google’s advertising platforms to optimize performance.
How do I know if GA4 is working?
To verify that the tag is working, visit your website and check to see that your visit is being registered in the Real-Time reports.
Does GA4 have views?
There is no “view” level section of GA4. In traditional Universal Analytics there are three levels (Account, Property, and View), GA4 only has Account and Property levels.
What is the difference between GA4 and UA?
One fundamental data collection difference between Universal Analytics and Google Analytics 4 is Events. Universal Analytics hit types consist of event, ecommerce, page views or social hits. On the other hand, in Google Analytics 4 any and every interaction is captured as an event. Each hit type in the Universal Analytics property is an event in Google Analytics 4.
Can I have both Universal Analytics and GA4?
Yes, you can use UA as the main reporting platform while you start collecting data with GA4. Once you have enough data collected, you can complete your migration.
Will Universal Analytics be discontinued?
Universal Analytics will phase out by July 1, 2023 by Google and will be replaced by GA4.
Can I merge my historic UA data with GA4 data?
No, as they both have fundamentally different data structures. Hence, it is imperative that you get started with GA4 and start collecting historical data for when needed.
Will I be able to see my historical data?
After July 1, 2023 you will be able to access your historical data in your Universal Analytics property for at least 6 months. When this grace period ends, this data will no longer be available in Google Analytics.
Who is GA4 for?
This platform is for everyone. If you are already using Universal Analytics for data tracking and measurement then this is for you.
Do you provide GA4 training
