  • Serve Google Tag Manager JavaScript from your own domain
    • Normally, Google forces browsers to re-download the JavaScript every 15 minutes, which can hurt your site rendering speed. If you choose to serve it from your own domain, the time between re-downloads is set to 30 days. It also allows you to serve it from the network edge (for example cached in Cloudflare's data centers).

  • You need to link your Google Analytics account and pick your property under Admin -> Options -> Analytics
  • The Analytics Admin API currently can't enable Enhanced Measurement for your property's data stream. For the time being, you will need to go into your Google Analytics account, go to Admin -> Property -> Data Stream, and enable Enhanced measurement if you want to track the things enhanced measurement tracks.
