Google Analytics is changing
Goodbye Universal Analytics, Hello Analytics 4.
Google Analytics are an essential tool for any digital marketing measurement and planning. With changes coming to Google, its time to plan!
Google Analytics in its current format referred to as Universal Analytics, will be coming to an end in July 2023. The platform change follows a range of changes by Google in recent years while also reflecting necessary changes to data collection and privacy policies globally.
Google Analytics 4 will become the new platform for analytical data of your website and though it will look a little different, it will still a wide range of insight to aid reporting and overall performance monitoring.
Universal Analytics data will remain for a time, but Google has advised that only data from 6-months prior to the July switch off will remain. For those seeking easy review of year-on-year data for example will benefit from organising their Google Analytics 4 property implementation sooner rather than later. This will also allow time to get used to the new platform, while ensuring continuity of data.
