Hi All,

We have a product array in the data layer on a search results page. Within this array, we have the product name, product ID and product price.

Question - We have a 3rd party HTML script that needs to collect the product ID's of all the products in the array. How would I go by creating a variable to only show all the product ID values within the array?

The Facebook pixel is a good example, where you need to pull in numerous content ID's.

Any help would be appreciated.

What is the best way to return a default value if a GTM variable is undefined?

I looked on Stack overflow and there seems to be a wide variety of ways to check for undefined, but nothing thats concrete.

Here is my go from within a custom HTML Tag:

var searchCatFromGTM = {{searchCategory}};
var searchCat = searchCatFromGTM == undefined ? "No Category Defined": searchCatFromGTM;

Any better way to do this?

Container Snippet placement recommendation now officially changed to <head>

FINALLY! The recommendation for where to put the Google Tag Manager container snippet has changed. The official word is now to put it in <head>.

This is significant, because <head> is the correct place for all asynchronously loading libraries, but GTM's documentation had been steadfast in recommending it to be placed in the beginning of <body>. With this change, the library will start loading earlier in the page load sequence, and as a result your tracking accuracy will improve.

If you want search console verification to still work, and if you care about JavaScript-less users, you'll need to leave the <noscript></noscript> block in the beginning of <body>.
