Wherever possible, Andreas adds tips, notes, and insights to the slides, so you get information and his experience.
Note: Google Analytics 3.0 versus Google Analytics 4.0
Google released a new version of analytics in late 2020. Although they call it an update, it’s a major shift in analytics. Google Analytics 3.0 (GA 3.0) tracks web pages (clicks, visitors, and so on), but Google Analytics 4.0 (GA 4.0) tracks audiences, but not pages or visitors. We are preparing a course on GA 4.0, but we don’t have it ready yet. This current course series focuses on Google Analytics 3.0. Google will continue to offer Google Analytics 3.0. Organizations can (and should) use both GA 3.0 and GA 4.0 because these do different things.
