Learning Google Analytics

Book description

Why is Google Analytics 4 the most modern data model available for digital marketing analytics?

This practical book prepares you for the future of digital marketing by demonstrating how GA4 supports these additional cloud integrations.

Data, business, and marketing analysts will learn major facets of GA4's powerful new analytics model, with topics including data architecture and strategy, and data ingestion, storage, and modeling. You'll explore common data activation use cases and get guidance on how to implement them.

You'll learn:

  • How Google Cloud integrates with GA4
  • The potential use cases that GA4 integrations can enable
  • Skills and resources needed to create GA4 integrations
  • How much GA4 data capture is necessary to enable use cases
