What is tag manager?
In the online business platform, google provides many tools to help them gain an edge. By allowing them to use certain tools it allows them to understand website data and other necessary steps needed to achieve whatever goal is in sight. A tool that allows the website to do this is google tag manager. By using a google tag manager, it allows for the creation of certain tags on your website. What it will do is track certain events that take place on your website. An event that takes place on your website is simply known as an action that occurs (Scrolling, clicks, and other interactions). Another thing placing tags can do is track specific events that you want to be tracked. A good example of this would be if a user was on your page for thirty minutes. Wow, that’s really good, they’re so invested in my page! That’s what one would think. However, if we use a specific tag to track their scrolling or clicks on the page it would most likely show that they simply are just on an open tab and not actually creating an event on the page at all.

Creating the tags takes four basic steps. The first is building a generic click trigger. Then, it’s the triggering of the event. Next, it’s refining the filter. Finally, we have to connect the tags we have created. By using tag manager there are many benefits for the websites. One benefit is that it’s very simple to use.
