Google Analytics 4 (GA 4) setup can be a bit confusing, so let's get into the two ways to set it up. We will be using Google Tag Manager to send our events to Google Analytics.
👍 Important: Google Analytics 4 takes 24 hours to update. You won't see any of your Events show-up, until the 24 hours has elapsed.
Do you already have Google Analytics 3 (Universal Analytics) setup?
How do I find out if I am using Google Analytics 3 (Universal Analytics)?
Login to your Google Analytics (GA) account.
Click on the Admin settings cog in the lower left corner of the screen.
Click property settings.
If you have a "UA" at the beginning of your Tracking ID, then you have GA 3 Universal Analytics. Go to setup 1.
