Introducing New MonsterInsights Global Site Tag Support

Do you want to easily upgrade to Google’s new tracking code system? If yes, then we’ve exciting news for you!

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce MonsterInsights Global Site Tag support.

In this release, we’ll show you how simple it is to move to the new tracking script (gtag.js) using MonsterInsights.

Let’s look at the details…

Switch to Global Site Tag Tracking Code

Google’s new tracking code snippet, Global Site Tag (gtag.js), allows you to send data to each of your Google marketing tools. This provides better integrations and offers deeper insights into your visitors and how they behave on your website.

And since Google will be using gtag.js to create new analytics features in the future, MonsterInsights is now making Global Site Tag its default tracking code for all users.

At MonsterInsights, we’ve worked tirelessly for the last few months, ensuring that the transition to Global Site Tag is smooth and effortless for our current users.

If you have any custom codes running on your site or have set up event tracking using another plugin, then you don’t have to worry about updating them. MonsterInsights will automatically detect analytics.js events and pass them through the Global Site Tag (gtag.js).

For more details, check out our MonsterInsights 7.16 announcement.

That’s it for this release!

We’d also like to thank you for your continuous support and for helping us make MonsterInsights the best Google Analytics plugin for WordPress.

  1. When creating a new analytics property, would we still need to create a Universal Analytics property or a GA4 property?

    1. Hi Alexia,

      We’re currently working on launching support for Google Analytics 4 soon. At this time, we’re waiting for Google to release some APIs for the public to use.

      For now, we currently support Universal Analytics properties which we recommend users stay with until we’re ready to launch. When this happens, we’ll be reaching out to users with a simple, seamless upgrade.

      For your Google Analytics property to work with MonsterInsights, please enable the option “Create a Universal Property only”, found under the advanced options when creating a new property. Here’s our step by step guide on how to do this:
