Google Analytics 4 (GA4) represents the largest and most significant change to the Google Analytics platform to date. Beyond establishing Events as a primary metric at the forefront of GA4’s capabilities, the shift has upended much of what agencies have thought they’ve known about analytics for years and has introduced a necessary paradigm shift.
On July 1, 2023, GA4 will officially replace Google’s previous Universal Analytics model as the standard analytics system offered by the tech giant. Universal Analytics will cease collecting new data and account owners will have a period of time to save the historical data before it is fully sunset and access is no longer possible.
We’re here. GA4 is happening and the shift will occur before you realize. Fortunately, this does not create a cause for panic. With some strategy, careful planning, and making the most of the time available, you can ensure a smooth transition from UA to GA4 and maintain a seamless continuity across your campaigns.
