Market Proof Marketing · The End Is Near for Google Analytics 3! Prep GA4 now

Dennis O'Neil and Molly White join Andrew Peekto discuss the sunsetting of Google Analytics 3 (GA3) on July 1, 2023, and how to prepare for Google Analytics 4 (GA4) now. They review the differences between GA3 and GA4 and discuss why now is the time to create your new account so you can have year-over-year data when the mandatory change occurs next year. Plus they discuss the biggest challenges they believe markers will have to overcome to use and understand GA4.

Andrew, Dennis, and Molly discuss:

  • What makes Google Analytics 4 different from Google Analytics 3 (aka Universal Analytics)
  • Why GA4 is forecasting more on events over sessions
  •  Understanding n Event vs a Session: An event is an action that someone has taken on your website in some shape or form and a session is a visit to the website
  • Why you should take this time to explore new tracking opportunities with GA4 
  • The benefits of GA4, including the building of custom funnels vs analyzing your source medium reports
  • Why google data studio might be dead after the launch of GA4
  • Why there will be less historical data to compare against
