What is Google Analytics 4 (GA4)?
Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is the latest version of Google’s popular web analytics platform. It was released in October 2020 and is designed to help your businesses better understand your customers’ behavior across various devices and platforms.
GA4 uses an event-driven data model, which means that instead of tracking pageviews and sessions, it tracks user interactions and events such as clicks, scrolls, and video plays. This new approach provides a complete picture of user behavior and allows businesses to gain insights into how users engage with their website or app.
One of the biggest benefits of GA4 is its integration with Google’s advertising platforms. By linking GA4 with Google Ads and other marketing tools, you can get a complete view of your customer journey from ad click to conversion. This can help you optimize your ad campaigns and improve your ROI.
