In part one, we learned about Sarah Burke, the Data and Analytics Manager at Cypress North. We also spoke about some of the differences between Google Analytics 4 and Universal Analytics 3. Here we talk about the benefits of Google Analytics 4.

Some of the benefits of Google Analytics 4 include:

  • Cross-domain tracking is better
  • Bot filtering is better
  • Debug view is nice
  • Event scope segments
  • Attribution model option
  • Big Query integration
  • Customize the sidebar

I mentioned some of the confusion around Firebase and Google Analytics 4 and how making a new profile for Firebase can cause issues. This is a topic most people don’t talk about and you should be aware.

Sarah then spoke about how important it is to have the data talk to each other in a single dashboard tool. So the importance of bringing all data from various data platforms into one location to get a holistic view. So bring in your Google Ads, Microsoft Advertising, Search Console, GA4, etc into one place. She uses a lot of CRM software and prefers Hubspot, but they all have mechanisms to integrate with.

I then went off on a tangent of Hubspot's office and worked from home, sorry about that.
