Hi,

 

Can someone please advise on a Google Tag Assistant issue. (not the red tag issue)

 

I installed Universal Analytics via the GTM Smiley Happy

On Preview the GA tag fired ok Smiley Happy

On test via Real Time Events, it worked ok Smiley Happy

But Google Tag Assistant doesn't show Google Analytics Smiley Sad

 

Is it possible to fix this please?

Thanks, Eamonn McGreevy

If you can see data collected on Real Time reports it can be false positive. Sometimes Tag Assistant does not get it right.

I am having the exact same problem now. Real-time shows the pageview and in GTM preview mode the tag shows to be firing correctly. However Tag Assistant does not detect it at all. My concern (what is strange) is that Tag Assistant DOES detect the GA tag on all pages except any category page. So if I open the home page or a product page the GA is detected. Only on category pages is not.

 

If there is any new knowledge about this out there, please do share.

Hi,

 

I recently discovered that if you are sending a lot of data to GA it is sent via POST which does not seem to show up in Tag Assistant. If you load your category page and check the console and the network tab (filter with collect) see if the request is made via POST. There you can also verify that you are actually sending all the data like product list impressions and other possible data.
