Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows you to manage and update various codes and code fragments, also known as tags, on a website. Tags are used for different purposes, such as measuring website traffic, tracking conversions, remarketing, and more. With Google Tag Manager, you can easily add, edit, or remove tags without having to modify the source code of your website.

Specifically for an eCommerce site, you can set Tag Manager to ‘tag’ certain events that the eCommerce platforms put into the Data Layer (item view, add to basket, checkout, purchase etc.). You can see a list of events that Google recommends you track with Tag Manager here. Tracking these events is done through Tag Manager and once these are tagged, you can begin to build some fairly detailed reporting on the eCommerce journey on a website.

User Login

Aside from the eCommerce tracking, each business might desire that a visitor reach a specific destination on the site, that they contact you via clicking a phone link (mobile) or connecting via email. You might have company or product information in the form of a PDF that you would like a visitor to download. Theses can be tracked and presented in reports.

When these specific events are triggered, they can be analysed as to where the visitors’ came from that reached that goal. Was it via a Google search, through an email campaign, from social media or advertising? Each of the sources of site traffic can be analysed to see which has the best ROI and a business can begin to see where they should best focuses their efforts.
