Google Analytics is smarter than we probably give it credit!
Last week, during some testing sessions with GTM I accidentally published a version of the tags with an error in the ecommerce tracking. While the code was on for only a few minutes, 14 transactions went through but with the wrong transaction amount format. 
Somehow, they got to Google Analytics as a very big number: probably more money than all the money in the world. I noticed them the second day.

2 days later I was preparing to reverse the transactions when I realized they were removed automatically from the reports.

I guess that proves that there is more than it meets the eye (which is huge anyway). If I ever meet you or any of your colleagues +Nick Mihailovski beer is on me. :)

Is it possible to retrieve the '_setAccount' value to use it inside a request outside GTM when the Google Analytics dedicated tag is used within GTM?

I am asking because if you use the dedicated Google Analytics tag inside GTM, any track pageview you do from the source code of the website will use the following GA account: UA-XXXXX-X

Am I missing anything?

I am trying to setup a new remarketing list and I am having a hard time.
I want to target all people that visit a certain group of pages but do not purchase anything.

I went for the custom segmentation > sequence filter
Step 1:
Include page containing "my-string"
Step 2 (anytime after)
Exclude transactions greater than 0

Somehow, the Google Estimates gives me more cookies with that second step than without it.

Am I missing something?

I struggled with Google's GA retargeting the first time I used it before eventually passing it along to an AdWords professional.

The contractor told me that the GA retargeting was way too buggy use consistently and switched to native AdWords retargeting. Problem solved.

I just finished working on a very small Google Chrome plugin that injects the Google Analytics tracking code (thank you measurement protocol) on each page I visit.
Why? Well, I am really curious how the data will look like after one week of collecting. It will basically be my fingerprint on the web.
If you have any ideas or suggestions or anything really that you think would be call to do with my setup, I would be glad to hear it. :)

So far so good. I am waiting for a bit more data to come in. From the little time I spent with the existing data, there are things that mirror my activity exactly but other things are very easy to misinterpret and some actually very wrong.

When launching a new app or website, the key metrics that will make a difference for you will be totally different compared to established websites or businesses.
e.g. Number of visits and pageview really are a KPI when you have very little or no traffic on your website.

Hi Claudia,

I wish I could send a hug. Thank you. Made my day.
Within our project, your code will be a last resort thing and it will probably apply to less than 1% of the cases, but still, it will avoid us doing manual work on certain cases where it would just add delays to projects.

If there is any charity or cause you love out there, let me know and I'll gladly do a donation. (I'll do it anyway, but if you prefer one I can do it there)

Thank you,
Claudiu

Some very good design points in the article.
 
Dieter Rams is a hero of mine. I've learned so much from his work, interviews, videos, way of thinking. Even though I'm not a industrial designer (and never will be).  It has helped me make my tables, charts, frameworks, speeches, thinking and so much more. 

I adore Mr. Rams' "Ten Principles of Good Design." My latest post on LinkedIn coves that topic: http://goo.gl/0MxUM5
