3 Reasons Why You Need To Transition From Universal Analytics To Google Analytics 4
1 – Compare Data Between UA and GA4
If you do not transition with plenty of time before the deadline, you will not be able to compare the data between UA and GA4, which could lead to future problems, such as data inaccuracies and event set up not being integrated correctly.
If you run any form of Google Ads, the platform may rely on conversion and audience data from Universal Analytics. If you do not transition, the performance of your campaigns will be negatively impacted as there will be no tracking in place after the 1st of July 2023.
2 – Google Analytics and GDPR
One major improvement that GA4 has made is to do with how personal data and IP addresses are processed. Unlike with UA, GA4 will no longer collect IP addresses, making your data more protected.
In addition to this, it is now easier to delete customer information. This means that if a user requests their data to be deleted, you can easily remove their data on GA4.
3 – Have More Control Over Tracking Events
GA4 focuses more on creating different events for every step of the way to help you understand your customers and your analytics better. With a new system on organising your events and tracking better, GA4 helps you feel more in control of the events you want to track.
There are plenty of reasons why you should start transitioning from UA to GA4 today, including comparing data, GDPR and having control over tracking events. As the July deadline is quickly approaching, make sure you transition to GA4 as soon as you can.
