Great new tool for large organizations who use +Google Analytics via +David Vallejo. Leverage an online pivot table to give you immediate visibility into User Access and Permissions.

+Brian Kuhn Please please pretty please.... GTM needs the ability to selectively publish tags.  It is critical.

How does one return a GA clientId to a custom dimension in GTM iOS SDK?

+Simo Ahava do you have a similar code for Android?

I found an old post of yours at Google Product Forum: productforums.google.com - GTM Application Client ID

But it looks like it's not correct any more with regards to the latest GA/GTM Android libraries.

I have a client who is claiming that 15% of their ecommerce transactions are being not collected in GA due to Ad Blockers. What say you, folks? Ad blocking is an issue, sure. But to what extent are ad blockers blocking GA?

+Jason Packer I can't honestly state it's a 100% similar to your solution. Fairly speaking, it took quite a lot of effort from me and my fellow devs to implement it. Plus, it required some tweaks in order to exclude all Yandex bots (https://yandex.ru/support/webmaster/robot-workings/check-yandex-robots.xml?lang=en) and other bots prowling across Runet.

Anyway, it's a great guide! Keep it up!

Currently in a back and forth with a client about adding GTM's javascript container tag to the <head> instead of opening body. Keeping my own opinion silent (for the moment).

Of course, I thought that this forum would be a good place to poll some of my expert friends. Especially +Brian Kuhn. :-)

What say you? Should GTM's javascript run from the <head> or <body>?

Understood.

So, default to option: a)

<html>
<head><title>Example1</title>
<!-- Google Tag Manager -->
<script>(function(w,d,s,l,i){w[l]=w[l]||[];w[l].push({'gtm.start':
new Date().getTime(),event:'gtm.js'});var f=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],
j=d.createElement(s),dl=l!='dataLayer'?'&l='+l:'';j.async=true;j.src=
'https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtm.js?id='+i+dl;f.parentNode.insertBefore(j,f);
})(window,document,'script','dataLayer','GTM-XXXX');</script>
<!-- End Google Tag Manager -->
</head>
<body>
<!-- Google Tag Manager (noscript) -->
<noscript><iframe src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/ns.html?id=GTM-XXXX"
height="0" width="0" style="display:none;visibility:hidden"></iframe></noscript>
<!-- End Google Tag Manager (noscript) -->
Hello World
</body>
<html>

But, for site with no global top <body> (such as Wordpress), use option b) to verify GoogleSearchConsole via a meta tag, or file upload:

<html>
<head><title>Example2</title>
<!-- Google SearchConsole verfification tag -->
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" />
<!-- Google Tag Manager -->
<script>(function(w,d,s,l,i){w[l]=w[l]||[];w[l].push({'gtm.start':
new Date().getTime(),event:'gtm.js'});var f=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],
j=d.createElement(s),dl=l!='dataLayer'?'&l='+l:'';j.async=true;j.src=
'https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtm.js?id='+i+dl;f.parentNode.insertBefore(j,f);
})(window,document,'script','dataLayer','GTM-XXXX');</script>
<!-- End Google Tag Manager -->
</head>
<body>
Hello World
<!-- Begin Global footer -->
<!-- Google Tag Manager (noscript) -->
<noscript><iframe src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/ns.html?id=GTM-XXXX"
height="0" width="0" style="display:none;visibility:hidden"></iframe></noscript>
<!-- End Google Tag Manager (noscript) -->

Metrics, Metrics, Metrics, oh my!! With the recent (very welcome) release of calculated metrics in Google Analytics, I thought that the time was ripe to write a post about custom metrics in GA. Towards the end of this post you will see why I believe that custom metrics are quite a germane topic to …
