Frequently asked questions

  • Why should I learn GA4?

    Google Analytics 4 is replacing Google’s Universal Analytics; it’s a critical tool for anyone interested in online data analysis and allows you to make data-driven decisions by providing insights into user behavior on your website or app. GA4 offers significant upgrades in advanced tracking, cross-platform analysis, user privacy, audience building and reporting tools that even experienced Google Analytics users will need to upskill on.

  • What are the main reporting improvements in GA4?

  • When should I switch to reporting via GA4?

    Ideally, you should already be reporting in GA4. Google switched off data collection within Universal Analytics in July 2023 and will sunset Universal Analytics 360 in July 2024. If you’re new to Google Analytics, then you’ll need to begin with GA4. In this case, you may also want to consider our Google Analytics 4: Implementation & Configuration course.
