Migrating from on site tracking to tag manager

Hey all,

There is a website I started to manage and I want to move the tracking codes from being on-site to tag manager. I have added the tags (GA Universal Tracking Code, FB Pixel + a remarketing code from AdWords) in Tag Manager, haven't published them yet but with the debugger I saw they all are firing. Is this the right way for me to do the migration:

1. Remove the on-site tracking codes

2. Publish the tags in the Tag Manager

3. Check the Real Time info in Analytics to ensure the code is tracking

 

Thanks!

Hi @Selimira D,

 

Yes, you are on the right path Smiley Happy

As soon as you publish your tag, they it will start to work. There is not much delay.
