How To Quickly Switch To Global Site Tag (gtag.js) In WordPress

Google Analytics is the most popular and fastest-growing traffic analysis tool, with a usage of 55.3% and a market share of 84.2%.

Google Analytics provides valuable insights about your site and helps you to succeed in your business.

So that’s why after creating a website, users first add Google Analytics on their site.

But now Google comes with Google Analytics’ new tracking code system, called Global Site Tag (gtag.js).

Google’s new tracking code snippet, allows users to send data to each of their Google marketing tools. This provides better integrations and offers deeper insights about visitors and how they behave on users’ websites.

That’s why in this article I will show you how you can quickly switch to Global Site Tag (gtag.js).

If you don’t add Google Analytics to your website, please read this article about adding Google Analytics on WordPress.

MonsterInsights comes with a free and paid version. But with the paid version you will get lots of advanced features. So if you are an advanced user, make sure to consider the paid version.

Since Google will be using gtag.js to create new analytics features in the future, MonsterInsights is now making Global Site Tag its default tracking code for all new users.

Now you might be thinking, I am an existing user, how can I switch to the new Global Site Tag (gtag.js), right? So if you think so, you don’t need to worry about it.

MonsterInsights also offers a new limited-time option that you can use to switch from the older tracking code (analytics.js) to Global Site Tag with a click of a button.

And the cool thing is if you are running custom code on your site or have set up event tracking using another plugin, then you don’t have to worry about updating them. MonsterInsights will automatically detect analytics.js events and pass them through the Global Site Tag (gtag.js).
