Hi all. 

I've just stumbled across this community and am happy to become a part of it. The reason I found it was we are trying to implement YouTube event tracking with GTM, but have hit a rather large roadblock—I'm hopeful that someone has perhaps found a way to move around this issue. 

A clients micro site is in need of YouTube event tracking and being new to this implementation, we followed the great writeup by Dan Wilkerson below. It all went in fine, but would trigger very inconsistently. Since this was not working well our tech lead attempted to implement the code by hard coding into the site, to no avail. He then ran a number of tests and discovered that once he commented out the GTM script from the site, the logs for events would come through. 

This is obviously not really an option, as we require the GTM script to run a number of other event tracking pieces within the site. Has anyone on here come across this problem before and was there any luck finding a solution? We're really stuck and the client is pushing hard for this implementation. 

Any help would be fantastic and much appreciated.

Hi +Stéphane Hamel . Thanks for the advice. Thing is this is my business, but unfortunately I've been too slammed to take any of the GTM courses and catchup (it's still pretty new to me, but aside from the YouTube component, it makes total sense). Everything we had setup for this should be working and has worked for countless others, but we hit some sort of conflict. I will try your method to see if we get a different result, and if not, then I will likely seek the professional help of peers that know GTM and better still, YouTube tracking in GTM, to help us with the situation. 

Many thanks, 

AJ

Pinterest. It's a little popular (cough sarcasm), but these statistics are staggering. Outside of that, another interesting point in this is that 64% of the Interbrand Top 100 Brands are on Google+!
