First let we see what is google analytics ?

Google Analytics is a free tool offered by Google that can help you to measure the traffic to your website, making it easier to understand what's working and what's not.

Next What is Universal Analytics?

It is one of the previous version of Google Analytics.

Upto October 14, 2020 Universal Analytics is the default property type for websites.

Next What is GA4?

GA4 (Google analytics 4 ) is the new google analytics version . 

GA 4  also formerly known as “App + Web” 

What’s the issue of using only GA4?

Data in GA4 will be shown only from the date created in GA4. The data of Universal Analytics will not be shown in GA4.

For website owners , this is huge drawback to track data.

How to solve GA4 issue?

Try Monsterinsights Pro plugin which can dual track & keeps data of both Universal Analytics and GA4 .

It’s simple and easy ! .


How to set Monsterinsights Dual Tracking of Universal Analytics and GA4 ?

Step1: Install MonsterInsights. If you have not yet installed MonsterInsights check below video.

In the below video tutorial , I have selected GA4 just to show the Launch SETUP Wizard & installation process .

Other Features of Google analytics 4 or GA4:

1.The core of Google analytics 4 or GA4 is built with machine learning.

2. Google Analytics 4 gives you a deeper perspective on the full customer lifecycle with insights for acquisition, and retention .The best things about Google Analytics is that it can integrate data from both mobile & web apps to give you a clear view of your customers.

3. Google Analytics 4 can be used for a long time and it is/will be the recent default Google Analytics version

What are some other drawbacks in Google analytics 4 ?

1.Small business owners feels the interface hard to understand and handle. Their main and basic needs in interface are  page views , bounce rate and some others like this need to be viewed directly which is enough for them .  In short, Reports can be tricky to understand.

2.Google Analytics 4 has excluded the Bounce Rate feature instead it has engaged sessions .

3.Google Analytics 4 cannot integrate with Google Search Console


 Why we are recommending to install MonsterInsights Pro Plugin for dual tracking?

You  no need to be coding expert . No need to think more about practicing  GA4 interface if you have MonsterInsights Pro version . Just Copy the and Paste the UA id or G-id . And you can see all the details within wordpress dashboard.

Form conversion tracking, custom dimensions integration were still available in Monsterinsights Pro version. We hope you already know this , that GA4 doesn’t have direct way to track form conversions.

EU compliance is a good way to keep up with the new privacy regulations, especially GDPR and CCPA. Monsterinsights still have this feature also.
