What is Google Analytics 4?

Originally set up as UA or Urchin Analytics, this tool was bought by Google in 2005 and renamed Google Analytics. In 2023 this became GA4 or Google Analytics 4. Mainly to conform with privacy rules and GDPR. Google Analytics was a game-changer over the years, offering free and powerful website analytics to businesses of all sizes. Businesses can see how visitors interact with their websites, what content resonates, and where improvements are needed.

GA4 represents the future of analytics, offering:

Cross-platform insights: Track user journeys seamlessly across devices (desktop, mobile, app).

User-centric focus: Gain a deeper understanding of your customers’ behaviours and preferences.

Enhanced tracking capabilities: Capture valuable data points to tailor or tweak winning strategies. 

The story doesn’t end there. Google Analytics has continuously evolved to stay ahead of the curve. Mobile browsing became ubiquitous, necessitating the ability to track user journeys across multiple devices. Google responded with upgrades that allowed businesses to understand how visitors interacted with their websites on desktops, tablets, and smartphones.

Now, in a period of heightened user privacy concerns especially in Europe and the rise of complex customer journeys, Google Analytics 4 (GA4) has emerged. GA4 prioritises user privacy with features like anonymised data and user control options. It also focuses on cross-platform tracking, giving businesses a holistic view of their customer interactions, regardless of the device used. All of this data is without identifying the user’s identity. Thats gotta be good.

Ready to Set Up Google Analytics 4? Here’s a Simplified Guide

  1. Create a Google Analytics Account: Sign up or log in using your existing Google account http://www.google.com/analytics/ . If you do not have a Google account you will be prompted and guided to create one.
  2. Configure Your Property: In GA4, a “property” represents your website such as ours https://meanit.ie/ . Set up a dedicated property for GA4 data collection.
  3. Install Tracking Code: Integrate the GA4 tracking code into your website. This code is crucial for collecting and sending data to your Analytics dashboard. Copy it from GA4 and paste it in to your website. Wherever your website platform recommends, such as the header section or ‘Head’ if it is a WordPress platform.
  4. Set Up Data Streams: Identify and configure the data streams you need, whether from your website, apps, or other sources.
  5. Verify Configuration: Ensure everything is set up correctly by checking real-time data and making necessary adjustments. You should see yourself as a visitor in GA4 if you browse your own website.

Míle buíochas! Our sincere thanks to Michael and his team at MEANit for producing an excellent website for us at gteic Cill Charthaigh.

Nothing was too much trouble. It was a totally painless process and we were more than satisfied with the outcome. We would have no hesitation in recommending MEANit to anyone who wants a professional website for their business or organisation or committee etc. Go raibh míle maith agaibh!

I could not recommend Michael, John and Maryann at Meanit enough for anyone who is looking to build a website or update their website. Right from the beginning Michael was there to assist, and build my website to ensure all the content I wanted was there and the site was professional. Michael and John ongoing support and advising how to maximise our website content is excellent. Michael Gill FCA, partner Bonner Gill & Co. Chartered Accountants.

I look forward to continuing adapting and upgrading my graphic design website in the future with Michael & the team.
