Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is a comprehensive analytics tool for both websites and apps.

It lets you see how users engage with your platform, so you can adjust your marketing efforts for better engagement.

Here’s the thing:

GA4 tracks data differently from the former Universal Analytics (UA).

Which might throw you off if you’re used to UA’s setup.

The good news?

It’s now easier to see user behaviors on your website:

  • Downloads
  • Video Plays
  • Affiliate links clicked

And all this while keeping on the right side of international privacy laws.

GA4 – Events report

Yes, there’s a bit of a learning curve, like any new tool.

But that’s where we come in.

In this GA4 guide, we’ll cover some GA4 basics, along with:

  • How to install GA4 on your site
  • The differences between GA4 and UA
  • Navigating the GA4 interface and key metrics
  • Using GA4 for SEO

Let’s start.

What Is Google Analytics (GA4)?

Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is a web analytics tool that helps you understand how people use your website or app. It can track every click, scroll, purchase, and other actions across various platforms and devices.

Unlike its predecessor, Universal Analytics, which was primarily session-based, GA4 introduces an event-based model.

What does this change mean for you?

You get more precise data collection capabilities and improved user privacy measures.

Event-based tracking focuses on what visitors do. Not who they are.

It’s less about tracking individual visitors and more about understanding user actions.

Another key aspect of GA4 is its use of AI and machine learning, which makes predictions when data is limited.

All good news for your data collection efforts.

What Is GA4 Used For?

You can use GA4 to get insights into user behaviors, navigational patterns, and the customer journey.

With its data, you can optimize your content, fine-tune your marketing strategies, and build more effective marketing funnels.

Whether you’re a business owner, data analyst, SEO professional, or digital marketing strategist, GA4 can help you better understand—and better serve—your visitors.

Here are some specific ways you can use GA4.

Analyze User Behavior Across Different Devices and Platforms

It’s a fact.

The customer journey is messy.

Customers weave across devices and platforms. Jumping from your website. To social. To search. And back again.

User behavior

GA4 helps make sense of this chaos.

With its cross-device and cross-platform tracking capabilities, you get an integrated view of the entire journey.

You’ll understand how your audience engages with each channel and moves between them on their way to a conversion.

With these insights, you can optimize your marketing across the whole ecosystem of touchpoints. Instead of individual channels in isolation.

Inform SEO Strategy

GA4 links up with Google Search Console, helping you with two things.

  1. Discovering which keywords are bringing people to your site
  2. Seeing what visitors do once they arrive

Looking at your data, you can answer questions such as:

  • Are visitors sticking around? Or bouncing off?
  • Are they clicking on affiliate links or downloading an ebook?

This information can then inform your SEO strategy.

For example, if a piece of content gets a lot of traffic and engagement, you could create more content around that keyword.

You can also track visitor journeys to understand the path from initial visit to conversion.

You can then use that knowledge to optimize internal linking structures.

All good news for your SEO strategy efforts.

Improve Marketing Campaign Performance

Want to know if your marketing campaigns are a success or a dud?

GA4 can answer that.

Are you trying to figure out which influencers are bringing in engaged traffic during your campaigns?

GA4 can help you track that, too.

Want to see the real impact of your ads on conversions?


With GA4’s ability to track behavior across different channels—plus the insights of its AI assistant—you get a clear picture of the entire customer journey.

This means you’re better equipped to fine-tune and optimize every step of that journey—right down to the finest details.

Create Accurate Customer Personas

GA4 helps you gauge the intent of website visitors based on behavior data.

This means you can segment your audience with precision. And create customer personas that mirror their reality.

The result?

Targeted content and marketing campaigns that make your audience feel like you’re talking directly to them.

Analyze Ecommerce Performance

GA4 provides granular ecommerce analytics—from product views to refund rates.

These insights help ecommerce you optimize inventory, merchandising, and site experience based on how customers shop.

For example, you may discover the blue color variation of a shirt sells 3x more than other colors.

You can use this insight to decide which items to increase stock for. And which ones may need a rethink in your inventory.

eCommerce funnel

Improve User Experience

GA4 revolves around a core principle: tracking customer behavior.

Are your visitors clicking? Reading? Scrolling? Watching Videos? Buying? Bouncing off as soon as they arrive?

With this fly-on-the-wall perspective, you’ll have data to guide how you can improve user experiences on your website or app.

GA4 Setup Guide: How to Get Started With GA4

Time to set up GA4.

If you’ve had a Universal Analytics account, there’s a good chance you already have a pre-generated GA4 property.

Note: When UA was phased out, Google automatically added GA4 properties to existing accounts. Most users will find an initial, incomplete GA4 setup ready for them unless they have opted out.

Haven’t used UA before? You’ll start by creating a new GA4 account.

Either way, there’s setup work to be done.

To get started, make sure you have access to:

Got those? Great! Let’s proceed.

How to Set Up Google Analytics 4: Step-by-Step Guide

Never used Google Analytics before? Here’s what you need to do.

Step 1: Create an Account

Go to the Google Marketing Platform and click “Sign in to Google Marketing Platform.”

Google Marketing Platform

Click the “Set up” button under Analytics.

Marketing Platform – Set up Analytics

Then, click the “Start measuring” in the window that follows.

Google Analytics 4 – Start measuring

This takes you to the “Create an account” page.

Analytics – Account creation

Step 2: Add Account Name and Edit Settings

Type in your name in the “Account Name” box. This is typically your business or website name.

Then, tick the data you want to share with Google.

Click “Next.”

Analytics – Account name

Step 3: Set Up Your Property

In the “Property name” box, type out the name of your URL. And set the “Reporting time zone” and “Currency“ to match your business preferences.

Analytics – Create a property

When you hit “Next,“ you’ll be prompted to answer a few business-related questions.

Analytics – Describe your business

You’ll then need to state your Google Analytics objectives. Choose one.

Analytics – Choose objectives

Lastly, accept the Google Analytics 4 terms of service.

Analytics – Terms of service

Step 4: Set Up a Data Stream

In GA4, both web and app data are incorporated through a feature known as a data stream.

Add a separate data stream for each platform you’re using.

Here’s how.

How to Add a Web Data Stream

To add your website, click the “Web” button.

Analytics – Start collecting data

Then, add your URL. And give your site a “Stream name.”

We recommend leaving “Enhanced measurement” turned on.

Click “Create stream.”

Analytics – Set up data stream

This will allow GA4 to automatically track actions like video plays, link clicks, downloads, and more.

After clicking “Create Stream,” you’ll see your Web stream details.

Click “View tag instructions” to get the installation instructions for adding the GA4 code to your website or CMS such as WordPress or Shopify.

Analytics – Web stream details

Step 5: Add the GA4 Tracking Code to Your Website

Next, you’ll need to link your website to GA4 by installing the tracking code to your website.

This enables GA4 to collect data from your site.

You have three options to add this code to your website:

  1. Install manually
  2. Install with a CMS or a website builder
  3. Use Google Tag Manager

For this GA4 tutorial, we’ll focus on the manual installation.

After clicking “View tag instructions” in the previous step, you’ll see detailed instructions for the installation process.

These instructions are designed to help you smoothly integrate the GA4 code, whether using a standard web platform or a CMS like WordPress or Shopify.

Here’s how to proceed:

Click “Install manually” to access the JavaScript code.

Analytics – Install manually

Then, copy the code.

This code must be added to the ”<head>” element of every page on your site.

The method varies based on the CMS or website platform you’re using.

For example:

  • In WordPress, you can add the code using a plugin like “Insert Headers and Footers” or by editing the theme’s header template.
  • In Shopify, you can add the code directly into the Google Analytics section within the Shopify admin dashboard.

How to Add GA4 to a Pre-generated GA4 Property

First, check if there is a pre-generated property in your account.

Click “All accounts” at the top left corner of the GA4 interface.

Analytics – All Accounts

This will open a list showing all the properties linked to your account.

Browse through the list to find a GA4 property for the specific website or app you’re interested in setting up with GA4.

If you find one, click on it to access that property’s details.

Analytics – Accounts

Note: If you don’t find a pre-existing GA4 property, you’ll need to create a new one from within your Google Analytics account by following the instructions for a fresh GA4 installation provided earlier.

Access Setup Assistant

After selecting the property, you’ll get a warning popup that urges you to migrate your website to GA4.

Analytics – GA4 warning popup

Click on the “Go to Setup Assistant” to access the GA4 setup assistant, which will guide you through the rest of the setup process.

Analytics – GA4 Setup Assistant

Click on “Get Started” under “I want to create a new Google Analytics 4 property”.

This will connect your old Universal Analytics to Google Analytics 4.

Analytics – Successfully connected

Click on “Go to your GA4 property” to continue the setup.

The Setup Assistant will guide you through a 8-step process, with a progress bar to track your progress.

Notice that there are three priority steps to start tracking:

  1. Collect website and app data
  2. Turn on Google signals
  3. Set up conversions
Analytics – Setup Assistant

Follow each step, selecting options that fit your use of Google Analytics.

How to Know If GA4 Is Working

Here’s how to confirm that Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is working correctly.

Navigate to “Reports” > “Real-time.”

Next, open your website in a separate browser window.

Then, return to the GA4 real-time report in Google Analytics.

If GA4 is correctly set up, you should see details such as your location and the page you’re currently viewing reflected in the report.

GA4 – Realtime – Overview

Troubleshooting Tips

If data isn’t showing up as expected:

  1. Use the Google Tag Assistant to check if the tracking code is correctly installed on your website
  2. Use GA4’s DebugView feature to flag any errors with event tracking
  3. If you’re using Google Tag Manager, verify that your GA4 configuration tag is properly set up.

Note: Data typically appears in GA4 reports outside of the Real-time section within 24 – 48 hours.

Connecting GA4 With Other Google Products

Linking GA4 to Google products, such as Google Ads and Google Search Console, can be very useful for your marketing campaigns. It sharpens your strategy by revealing exactly how users find and interact with your site.

Ready to link up? We’ll guide you through it.

For this example, you’ll connect to Google Search Console.

Note that connecting to other Google products follows the same straightforward manner.

Go to the Admin menu at the bottom left and click “Product links.”

GA4 – Admin – Product links

Here, you’ll find a list of tools that can be connected to GA4.

Click “Search Console links.”

GA4 – Product links – Search Console

Then, click “Link” in the window that follows.

GA4 – Search Console links

Click “Choose accounts“.

Create a link with Search Console

A new window will appear, showing Google Search Console accounts linked to your email.

Check the box next to the Property Name you want to add and click “Confirm.”

Link to a property

You’ll be taken to the “Link setup” window. Click “Next“.

Choose Search Console property

Click “Select” to pick the appropriate web stream.

Select web streams

In the “Choose a data stream” window, pick the appropriate data stream.

This will take you back to the link setup window.

Here, click “Next” to proceed.

Selected web streams

Review the details to ensure the property and web streams are matched correctly.

To finalize the integration process, confirm your settings by clicking “Submit.”

Universal Analytics (UA) vs. GA4

The transition from Universal Analytics to GA4 has been quite a shock to the system for many.

And with good reason.

This shift isn’t as simple as clicking a button.

And the differences between the two can feel quite stark.

So first, breathe.

Now, let’s make this transition easier for you.

Let’s bridge the gap between the familiar features of UA and the new features of GA4—so you don’t feel so lost when you’re navigating the GA4 interface.

Let’s go.

Data Models

UA and GA4’s different data models mean they collect and analyze data differently.

UA tracked user sessions and pageviews.

GA4 tracks user interactions—like clicks, purchases, and form submissions.

So what does this mean?

UA could tell you that a user visited a product page.

GA4 can also tell you that. And more.

It can give you the specifics:

  • Which images users clicked.
  • Whether they added items to their shopping carts.
  • And how far down the page they scrolled.

This level of detail in reporting was not possible with UA.

Google Analytics vs GA4

Metrics and Measurement

In Universal Analytics, the core metrics included “sessions,” “pageviews,” “bounce rate,” and “conversion rate.”

Google Analytics 4 retains these traditional metrics.

However, it places a greater emphasis on event-based metrics.

This is why GA4 dashboards look different by default.

You’ll see less prominence given to metrics like “bounce rate.”

And more focus on metrics such as “Engagement Time,” “Scroll Depth,” and “Engagement Rate.”

Device Tracking Capabilities

The device tracking in UA had its limitations—especially when integrating user journeys across multiple devices.

GA4, on the other hand, natively supports cross-device and cross-platform tracking.

Here’s why that matters.

In UA, when a person started their customer journey on a laptop and completed the purchase on a smartphone, the person may be recorded as two separate users.

In GA4, that same person is assigned an anonymized unique User ID.

This ID links all their interactions across different devices.

This means the journey that begins on a laptop and concludes with a purchase on a smartphone is recognized as a continuous experience by a single user.

Privacy and User Data Control

UA relied on cookie-based tracking.

GA4 is designed for a cookie-less future. While it uses cookies at the moment, this is soon going to be deprecated.

Customer Journey Analysis

UA had sessions and pageviews rather than continuous user journeys.

To analyze a user’s journey through your site, you’d often find yourself stitching together separate sessions.

Now, with GA4, you can capture user journeys more comprehensively.

And have an uninterrupted view of user interactions across your website.

Conversion Tracking

In UA, you had to set up specific goals and funnels, which could be a detailed and sometimes complex process.

GA4 simplifies this by automatically capturing standard events.

This change means less manual setup and more intuitive tracking.

The benefits?

With GA4’s sophisticated ecommerce tracking, you can have a clearer understanding of user transactions, revenue, and product performance,

Data Setup and Integration

Unlike UA, which required creating separate properties for different platforms, such as web and mobile, GA4 simplifies the process.

You simply set up separate data streams for each platform with a few button clicks.

After that, GA4 handles the heavy lifting by pulling all that different data together for you.

Reporting and Customization

One of the main features of GA4 is its highly customizable reports.

Yes, there are predefined reports when you first use it.

But the real power lies in your ability to tailor them to display only the data you need.

Through the “Exploration” features, you can combine, segment, and analyze data to craft custom reports.

This wasn’t available in UA.

Customization was possible—to some extent—through custom dimensions and metrics.

But it was relatively limited.

Sidenote: We’re not saying GA4 is perfect. Honestly, we’re still warming up to it. But it’s here to stay. As we mentioned at the start of this article, getting to grips with GA4 is a learning curve. Focusing on the positive aspects, though, will likely ease the transition.

Below is a table of the differences between UA and GA4 for easy reference.

Feature Universal Analytics (UA) Google Analytics 4 (GA4)
Data Model Session-based data model with a focus on user sessions and pageviews Event-based model treating every interaction as an event
Metrics and Measurement Central metrics: Pageviews, Sessions, Bounce Rate New metrics like Engagement Time, Scroll Depth, Engagement Rate
Device Tracking Capabilities Limited, especially across multiple devices Native support for cross-device and cross-platform tracking
Privacy and User Data Control Cookie-based Enhanced user data and privacy controls
Conversion Tracking Specific actions designated as conversion goals Any event can be a conversion
Data Setup and Integration Separate property setups required for different platforms (web, mobile) Unified property setup for multiple data streams (web, iOS, Android)
Reporting and Customization Standard, predefined reports with some level of customization Highly customizable for tailored reports

The GA4 Interface (+ Key Metrics)

Time to play around with GA4.

And get familiar with its interface.

GA4 – Home – Overview

Here’s where everything is:

  1. At the top left corner is the main menu
  2. On the left sidebar, you’ll find the primary navigation menu,
  3. The central area displays the reports or analyses you select from the left sidebar.
  4. At the top middle is the search bar
  5. On the bottom left,m you have your admin button
  6. In the top right corner, you’ll find your account information

Now, let’s look at the main navigation, where you’ll be spending a lot of your time.

The Main Navigation

The main navigation holds the different types of reports in GA4. It includes:

  • Home
  • Reports
  • Explore
  • Advertising
  • Admin
GA4 – Main navigation

By default, these metrics are set to show the last seven days. But you can change this window at the bottom left-hand side.

On the card to the right, you’ll see the number of users in the last 30 minutes.

GA4 – Users in last 30 mins

Like in Universal Analytics, each bar on the chart represents each minute in the last half hour.

If you hover your mouse over one of the bars, you can see exactly how many visitors you had 12 minutes ago, for example:

GA4 for SEO: Three Practical Tips

Let’s explore key GA4 reports that can help you analyze your SEO performance.

1. Keyword Performance Insights

To review keyword performance on GA4, you’ll need to connect Google Search Console (GSC) to it.

Click “Reports” > “Search Console” > “Queries

GA4 – Reports – Search Console – Queries

Here, you’ll find data on “Organic Google search clicks over time” and “Organic Google Search clicks by Organic Google Search query.”

GA4 – Search Console – Organic clicks

Scroll down, and you’ll see a table with a list of organic keywords that people use to find your website. Along with metrics like keyword impressions, click-through rate, and search position.

GA4 – Search Console – Queries

The list initially shows 10 queries per page, but you can adjust this by clicking the caret next to “Rows per page.”

Rows per page filter

2. Customizable Reporting

One of the significant GA4 improvements is that you can customize reports.

Want to create a specific report for your SEO analysis?

Here’s a way to do that.

Suppose you want to customize the “Traffic Acquisition” report to resemble the UA reports you were used to.


Go to “Reports” > “Acquisition” > “Traffic Acquisition.”
