Google Analytics Opt-out
Google Analytics opt-out is essential for digital marketers who spend time on their or clients’ sites. This extension prevents GA from firing at every website you visit.
It is essential to use this method when working with sites with low traffic or when heavily testing certain website elements and you wish for your site metrics to be independent of actual site users.
I always leave it on to remember when I need to use it. Remember to temporarily turn it off to test actions you will pass on to Google Analytics.
Google Tag Assistant
When troubleshooting tracking problems, knowing what Google tags are being fired on a site is helpful. The Google Tag Assistant provides a simple way to see if Google tags are loaded when pages load.
Tag Assistant can verify that your website is firing Google tags correctly. Tag Assistant can tell you if there are any tags on a page if any errors have been found, and what you can do to improve the implementation. Google Tag Manager, Adwords Conversion Tracking, and Google Analytics are all checked.
As a web analyst, I used Omnibug constantly. It is more comprehensive than Google Tag Assistant, reporting tags across multiple platforms, including Google, Facebook, and Twitter.
It shows the exact details of every tag and the data sent to each platform. This tool is invaluable when troubleshooting tags.
