I just received an email from GA announcing GA 4. The last paragraph says this:
"Now is the time to build the measurement foundation your business needs for the future — and we’ve made it easy for you to get started here. You can begin collecting data and benefit from Google Analytics 4 while keeping your existing Analytics implementation intact."
Has anyone set up GA 4? If so, is there anything we need to do in our Earnings Program Settings?
Sha Sha - On 28 Sep I sent an e-mail to Team HubPages and asked this very question. I kept getting the Google Analytics e-mail every so often and couldn't figure out how I might be able to set this thing up. Anyway, after he looked into it, Matt told me this: "You don't need to do anything on your end. We will be taking care of it."
I figured that was the case, but I didn't want to miss the train, if you're picking up what I'm putting down.
Anyway, should be good to go, dear friend. Have a good week!
For HubPages, I believe we only need UA (Universal Analytics tracking ID) and not GA 4. It has absolutely nothing to do with the earning program. I believe it is only used to collect data of your site's visitors. For example, their location, age group, if they are returning or new visitors, landing page statistics, your profile views, article views per day/month/year, and so on.
To learn the difference between two, see this: https://www.adaptworldwide.com/insights … difference
Blessings to you!
I know we're currently on the UA version. I've had an account for ten years now. I like the GA reports; I check them almost daily. I'm not sure how long Universal Analytics will be live with this new, upgraded iteration.
Maybe Glenn or Eugene will come in and offer their tech advice.
If you want to know how many left-handed people with wooden legs in Tasmania have read your articles on Tuesdays then I'd say go for it.
"If it Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It" is my opinion about these things. I wasted 3 weeks of my life this year updating, resetting and reinstalling Windows 10 three times (or was it four?). It pisses me off that Windows forces these updates on us and they can only be paused but not permanently turned. I'm after spending four hours tonight sorting out a failed update that luckily eventually installed, but only after it froze for an hour and I had to do a hard reset (which is bad for the disk. I have lots of bad sectors maybe caused by this crap)
Bummer, Eugene! I recently received an email that Windows 11 is coming soon. WTF?
This is one of several reasons I switched to a Mac Book Air about 6 years ago. Better security, and no problems with updates. I also got tired of replacing PC laptops every few years. I love my Mac. I added MS Office for Macs, and I don't have to deal with crazy Windows anymore.
