Issues having Google Analytics tracking code AND Google Tag Manager script installed

Hi,

 

I have a Google Analytics tracking script AND Google Tag Manager tracking scripts installed on my site.

 

Will my Google Analytics data get affected by having both tracking scripts in place?

 

I would appreciate any insight.

 

Thanks!

Hi Bryan S,

 

In addition to @Tomasz_C's answer (which pretty much sums it up for you), there's a very comprehensive and great article here: https://www.simoahava.com/analytics/ga-snippet-and-ga-gtm-tag-on-the-same-page/, that pretty much explains everything you need to know about co-existing GA and GTM tracking on the same page.

 

Hope this helps.

You can have GTM and Google Analytics tracking scripts on your website at the same time and it does not have any negative impact on tracking data. But it will be better to implement all tags via GTM.
