Every business seeks accurate data. Accurate data can be transformed into useful insights that guide your overall strategy. You may rely on Google Analytics for accurate and reliable website data however if this is the case; you need to be aware of something called ‘dark traffic’. Although dark traffic can go mostly under the radar, it’s likely having a huge effect on the quality and accuracy of your data.
Google Tag Manager (or for the purpose of speed GTM) is a hugely popular and powerful platform. However, it’s incredibly easy to get wrong. And if you’re using Google Analytics (which you most likely are) any mistakes you make are going to be forever visible on your account/view. This often can lead to problems comparing data, for example if you want to look at year on year (YOY) metrics, an issue with GTM tracking could easily lead to distorted and inaccurate figures.
