Add all the tags! Measure all the things!
Google Tag Manager (GTM) is a free Google tool that houses marketing, analytics, and conversion tags in one place. Once Google Tag Manager is installed on a website, all tags and pixels are managed within the GTM platform.
Benefits of Google Tag Manager:
- Cloud-based CMS for ad tracking tags/pixels
- No more individual requests to add, update, delete tags on each site by marketing and agencies
- Reduces page load time by making one request to Google, rather than multiple 3rd party sites
- Can add users and agencies to each ‘container’ to read or write to it
Examples of services GTM supports:
- Google Products: Analytics; Adwords Conversion Tracking; Adwords Remarketing; DoubleClick Floodlight Counter & Sales; Google Optimize; Google Surveys
- Non-Google Products: Adroll; LinkedIn; Bing Ads Universal Event Tracking; Quantcast Measure; Twitter; & dozens more!
In addition to tracking marketing pixels, Google Tag Manager is most commonly used for event tracking on a website. For example, rather than having the developer add event tracking code to buttons and forms, this can all be done through the GTM platform. The events are then configured in conjunction with Google Analytics to track user interactions on your site.
