Why choose GA4 instead of Universal Analytics?

Google Analytics 4 (GA4) has many advantage over the previous version Universal Analytics (UA). In summary, GA4 is a good option for the future.

New feature development for Universal Analytics had already been stopped. Now Google has also announced that the old version will stop working next year.

No data migration from old systems possible

Data collected with Universal Analytics cannot be imported into GA4 as it is a completely new tracking system.

Google Chrome will soon stop supporting cookie-based tracking. As a result, Universal Analytics will no longer work without technical conversion.

FAQs

Questions often arise about Google Analytics 4, as it is a new tool. We will answer them for you.

What is Google Analytics 4 (GA4)?

Google Analytics 4 is the latest standard version of Google Analytics and thus the most comprehensive version of the web tracking tool from Google. It is free for the vast majority of users, but must be set up by a developer. Since there are hundreds of new features in this version, it’s important to get expert advice on how to set it up to get the most out of it for your company.

Why should I switch to Google Analytics 4 now?

In the case of new websites, the decision is an easy one to make. However, even for websites that already use Universal Analytics, GA4 is a useful investment. Since older versions will be phased out in 2023, a switch is imminent in all cases. With an early switch, more historical data can be backed up, as migration is not an option. In addition, Digital Loop has developed a solution to run both Google Analytics versions in parallel, collecting data in the new system without affecting existing processes.

What are the advantages of GA4 compared to Universal Analytics?

Google Analytics 4 (GA4) has a larger feature set and is better equipped for the future. Many features that were only available to premium customers in previous versions, such as BigQuery, are unlocked for everyone with GA4. Cross-device tracking has become much more accurate through AI and can offer better data. Because GA4 takes a privacy centric approach, data privacy compliance under the GDPR is more compatible with accurate data. But the biggest advantage is that Google is actively developing GA4, while support for Universal Analytics will soon be phased out.

Are there already WordPress plugins available for GA4?

Almost all popular plugins support both GA4 and Universal Analytics. Get advice if an implementation with a plugin is possible in your case or if an installation with Google Tag Manager (recommended approach) is advisable.

How does the Google Analytics tracking code differ between GA4 and Universal Analytics?

Both versions use a Global Site Tag (gtag.js). A tracking ID from Universal Analytics is in the form UA-*******-* while Google Analytics 4 takes the structure G-**********. This allows you to see which version you are currently using on your site.

Do I have to delete my Google Analytics property to use GA4?

It is possible to run both tools in parallel. This way, existing processes can be maintained without having to forego the advantages of GA4. We provide you with competent support when setting up a parallel tracking system.

Is Google Analytics 4 still in beta?

No, Google Analytics 4 is the official version, which is strongly recommended by Google for new installations. The features are mature and there is full support from Google.

Can I implement Google Analytics 4 myself?

Yes, but you need to consider your technical skills, the complexity of your website and your expectations of what you plan to achieve with Google Analytics 4. Since consent management is a legal requirement in Europe, we do not recommend setting it up yourself. Please contact your internal IT team. Alternatively, the Digital Loop team is always available to assist you with the setup.
