When you click on the Tag Assistant result for GA, what does it say?

Have you checked if the UA-ID is entered correctly in the GTM tag?

 

Do you have just one pageview tag for that UA-ID?

It could be that Google Analytics is being loaded both through a analytics.js script and gtm

It says:

Web Property ID
UA-48606462-1UA-48606462-1
Code Version/Syntax
Universal
Protocol version number
1
1
Pageview Requests
Where to optimize
 
Invalid or missing web property ID
 
Non-standard implementation


Using TM Constant för the UAID and its correct.

Yes, only one pageview tag for that UAID.

Hi,

 

Please use the code one Code inside the Tag. If you are storing the UA ID in constant variable then please make sure the constant has only one UA Id in it.

 

Thanks

It only lists the UA ID once in the variable. Thats whats so confusing, I believe I have checked everywhere.

Hi Habil K,

 

As many people have alluded to already, it's not the GTM container loading twice, but rather you have an string input error wherever you have defined your tracking ID. For example, in my GTM container I have the following:

Screenshot - 9_23_2016 , 5_16_49 PM.png

 

As you can see, it's an ill-formed Value of "UA-0000000-0UA000000-0". And when I reload my page in preview mode, I see this in Tag Assistant:

 

Screenshot - 9_23_2016 , 5_18_33 PM.png

So as you can see it's very similar to what you're getting. I would go back and double check your GTM variables.

 

Good luck!

Thank you all for your time and comments.

I checked again and the constant had the correct input but the tag with page views had double input in the form of UA-XXXXX{{SHOP_CONSTANT}}

Now the TM Assistant is green and happy and I am too Smiley Wink
