The first step to setting up your Google system is always to get your website tags in order. So you want to have Google Analytics on your website, and Google Tag Manager if you’re using it. Google Ads normally draws from your Google Analytics except in special circumstances so you don’t normally need to add a tag to your website.

I often find that this first step to getting things set up can often be a difficult undertaking, causing hours of frustration for my clients!

One of my newsletter subscribers wrote in asking me how to deal with setting up the Google Analytics tags properly when you’re using WordPress and different plugins are causing it to be duplicated.

If you’re running into the same problem, here is how to resolve this gnarly problem.



I typically recommend setting up just Google Tag Manager and then adding any additional tags through the Google Tag Manager interface. Doing this will save you hours of frustration as you will always know where all your tags are. You can log into Google Tag Manager at any time and add or delete tags as needed.

You can install Google Tag Manager by manually adding the code to the header in your theme or by installing a plugin (If you use WordPress I like the Google Tag Manager for WordPress plugin).

Take care and have a great day!

Working with Petra was a great experience, communication was easy and she is very organized. She also provided detailed reports of the work she had done and the results generated. We would definitely recommend her services.

Petra's detailed reports and her personal assistance has been helping us to know where to concentrate our efforts and even showed us technical issues we needed to fix. Our Audience Engagement Report identified several key interests of our buying audience. We tried targeting one of those interests and it brought in two sales almost immediately! I highly recommend working with Petra and accessing her brilliance to scale your business.

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.

Hi Petra, Hope you are well, I checked out the Google Analytics and all I can say is AWESOME. You have essentially doubled her revenue in a month and the Google Ads seem to be popping off!
