GA4 setup

Switching to GA4 isn’t always easy. With so many new features, it can be hard to know what you need and how to interpret the data. 

Thankfully, we’re GA4 experts at Distinctly and have been using the platform since its release. This allows us to confidently support our clients with GA4 set-up, explaining everything in plain English. 

We understand that every Google Analytics account has its nuances such as specific filters that you may want to apply in GA4.

GA4 gives you greater flexibility and analysis potential. Setting up GA4 in the right way from the start is therefore extremely important, and will enable you to continue to deliver valuable analysis for your business.

Measure performance

Using Google Analytics to measure site performance is a fantastic way to make decisions and improvements. So, it can be frustrating when you’re unable to decipher what the data is trying to tell you. 

We can decode the information with custom reports and new Exploration reports, as well as help develop custom metrics and interfaces. 

Any reports created will be debriefed, so all businesses can fully understand what each report represents and why they matter to your overall business objectives.

Conversion journeys

Understanding exactly what makes (or doesn’t make) your customers convert is essential. This information is gold dust, enabling you to capitalise on what works and stop doing what doesn’t. 

Unlike the measurement model based on page views and sessions, GA4 is a more event-based model. So every page view or session is considered an event.

This will give you more detailed information about each visitor – whether location, device or page title – but it requires all events to be carefully set up to deliver this high level of personalisation across customer measurements and business goals. Conversion tracking and further enhancements, once set up, will also provide elevated results data.

User behaviour

Making the user journey seamless and reducing pain points on your website is key to boosting conversions. One of the biggest benefits of Google Analytics 4 is how customisable the platform is and how all reports can be adjusted or moved to different departments. 

If you’re managing a large website, or if you have a large number of conversion points you want to track in more granular detail, this can be achieved through the new flexible interface of GA4.

When do I need GA4 agency?

As the Universal Analytics deadline has now passed, partnering with a GA4 agency whether on an ongoing basis or across a short-term project is highly encouraged. The core activities that a GA4 agency would assist with is auditing your property to ensure your data is tracking correctly plus adding all of your conversions and creating added value reports that will help measure your website or campaign performance.

How does GA4 work?

Google Analytics 4 measures traffic and engagement across your websites and apps. It is privacy-focused and durable for the future intelligent, using machine learning to unearth insights about the customer journey across platforms and devices enhanced – offering seamless integrations with Google’s advertising platforms to optimise campaign performance and drive greater marketing ROI.

When did Universal Analytics (GA3) expire?

Google Analytics 4 is replaced UA on 1 July 2023 for standard Universal Analytics users. At this time, old properties will no longer process data.

You’ll be able to see your Universal Analytics reports for six months after July 1, 2023 – final date to be confirmed. However, new data will only flow into GA4 properties. Google Analytics 360 users will have an extension to 1 October 2023.


What’s the difference between GA3 and GA4?

The key differences between Universal Analytics (GA3) and Google Analytics 4 (GA4) are:

Model change

GA3 uses a measurement model based on sessions and page views whereas GA4’s is based on events and parameters. So every activity by a user is now seen as an ‘event’ and will give you more detail about these visitors to your website.

Data retention

Google Analytics 4’s data will expire after 14 or 2 months – previously you could keep it for 14/26/38/50 months or pick a Do not automatically expire option.

Session change

In GA3, a session is a combination of page views, events, transactions taken by one user within a set timeframe. GA4 sessions aren’t limited by time. So session count is likely to be lower, and average session time will change too. Plus average pages per session will no longer be measured.

Engagement rate

GA4 offers a range of engagement metrics including engaged sessions, engagement rate and engaged sessions per user. Bounce rate will be retained within the new set-up.

IP addresses

In GA4, IP addresses are automatically anonymised. Previously you had to flag those you wished to exclude or anonymise.

Landing page reports

Landing page reports from GA3 are no longer available as you can now easily find ‘session_start_ event’ data for a particular page. These can be created by Distinctly if these are a popular option when you’re using your Google Analytics 3 property.

Reporting interface and views

GA interfaces are different, as many reports or metrics have been replaced or removed. But as you build reports up manually in GA4, they will become as familiar as before.

Also in GA4, there is only one reporting view available – in GA3 you could have up to 25. Instead GA4 allows you to create new reports using  ‘Audiences’ or ‘Data Streams’. This gives greater long-term flexibility, and also replaces the previous ‘filter’ views.
