Updates to Google Analytics   2020

Google has been recently updated from Universal Google Analytics 3 (UAxxxxx) to Google Analytics 4 (G-xxxxxxxxxx).

For more info click here 

Google Analytics 4 

Google Analytics 4 is now the default experience for new Google Analytics properties and where Google is investing for the future. Google Analytics 4 builds upon the features introduced in Google Analytics App+Web  and is an entirely new measurement model which provides a more unified analytics solution for better cross-device measurement. Key new benefits include:

    1. Understand customer journeys with cross device insights powered by Google Signals
    2. Privacy centric measurement with regulatory compliance and tools
    3. Google’s machine learning to predict customer actions
    4. Cross platform ads integrations and native data-driven attribution
    5. Google Cloud integration to enable data decisioning and prediction

Google Analytics 4 includes a number of new reports, structured around customer lifecycle (Acquisition, Engagement, Monetization, Retention) with the ability for marketers to understand return and activate their first party data in a compliant manner. 

What is the impact?

Google has no immediate plans to deprecate Universal Google Analytics. However,  Google Analytics 4 is the primary analytics product that is being invested in.

It is recommend that all organisations who use Google Analytics set up dual tagging so they can start collecting data and take advantage of new Google Analytics 4 features and capabilities.  Data collection for Google Analytics 4 starts from scratch and implementation can take time. Setting dual tagging up now will give you historical data to work with and greater ownership of a migration path.  


At this stage Google Analytics are still supporting Version 3 and updating to Version 4 is not mandatory.

However if you want to update: 

Sign into your Google Analytics Account.
Find "Upgrade to GA4" and create a new tracking code. (G-xxxxxxxxxx)
Email the code to us and we'll add it to your 'Main Site Details'. You can still keep your version 3 track number as well.

OR if you have access: Go to your site "www.yoursiteurl/admin"  and paste that Tracking ID Number into the Site Tools/ Edit Site/Google Analytics Number: box
