Frequently Asked Questions About GA4
Why do I have to migrate to Google Analytics 4?
Universal Analytics properties are scheduled to stop collecting data on July 1, 2023. Therefore, you should move to GA4 as soon as possible, so you get as much data into your GA4 account.
The more data you acquire, the more you can take advantage of GA4’s machine learning models.
Can I transfer over my Universal Analytics data into GA4?
Currently, Google has not provided or suggested a way to save Universal Analytics data. However, we have methods of archiving your Universal Analytics data while still being able to report from it, if this is something you require.
What are the main differences between Universal Analytics & GA4?
- GA4 uses a different, more flexible data model compared to Universal Analytics.
- GA4 has been designed to provide a unified view of the entire customer journey across websites and apps.
- The reporting interface is very different which can be hard for users transitioning as it has fewer standard reports. However, it is now easier to create custom ad hoc reports using explorations in GA4.
- GA4 is more privacy-focused and future-proof.
- GA4 leverages the power of machine learning to help send better data back to your advertising platforms, specifically Google Ads.
Will yearly reporting still work with GA4 retention limits?
Many clients have asked us about year-on-year reporting as they have heard about GA4's retention limits. Unfortunately, GA4 does have a 14-month retention limit, but it's a confusing policy.
For example, if you intend to use the Explorations reporting feature in
GA4, you will be limited to 14 months (or two, if you haven’t updated your data retention settings). However, if you just want to look at the standard reports you will not be limited. We can provide you with more insights about this.
However, if you are serious about your data, then we recommend using Google's data warehousing solution BigQuery to store your data and build custom reports.
How long does it take to migrate to GA4?
The answer is... it depends. It depends on what you are going to track, the technology that you run your apps and website. This is why we recommend going through our trusted framework and deploying GA4 in stages.
What other benefits are there of migrating to GA4?
We believe that migrating to GA4 is a great opportunity to re-think or clean-up your current digital marketing tracking. We have seen so many accounts that track the wrong data or too much data that management teams never take action on that data.
Can you help get the most out of our GA4 data?
Absolutely, this is why for us, it is very important to understand your business first to give you the best data possible.
We see so many companies or web developers just add analytics code to websites but have no idea of what they are doing.
Do you provide support or GA4 training?
Once we have completed your GA4 migration, we can provide support & guidance to help you get the most out of GA4.
This can involve training, consulting, and ongoing support to help you make the most of the new platform.
