Hi,

 

If you have the GA script hardcoded on your website, but also have a GTM script that contains the GA tag, are you double counting your data? I.e. Metrics like Page View, Sessions etc...

 

Thanks!

GTM, on its own, is just an empty container.

If there's no pageview tag in GTM, you are ok.

If you have a pageview tag with the same UA, yes, you are double-counting pageviews.
