What is GA4?
Google Analytics 4 is the next generation of analytics that provides insight into your website traffic and engagement. GA4 will track the same data as Universal Analytics, but ultimately reports the data a bit differently. GA4 will have more predictive analytics, insights, and more visual representations of the data like graphs and charts. Universal Analytics properties will stop processing data on July 1, 2023.
Privacy has been a big concern for consumers recently, and Google has created GA4 with a privacy front-of-mind.
