What is gtag.js?

Global Site Tag or gtag.js, is Google’s new tracking code snippet.

To make full use of all the marketing tools that Google provides, you will need gtag.js. This new JavaScript is not strictly a Google Analytics library as it supports Google Ads conversion tracking and other support tracking for products provided by Google.

This also provides better integration and offers a deeper understanding of your visitors and their behavioral patterns on your website.

Why is important?

Once you rely on Google Analytics and traffic details you will need to know all there is to know about Global Site Tag.

This new tagging framework will be used by all Google tools and thus in order to send data to these tools you need to make the best use of gtag.js. Since this is the latest technology, switching will make you and your visitors happy.

How do you make the switch?
