Organizational Knowledge Development

So What’s Different With Google Analytics 4?

Basically we are going through a kind of data renaissance on the internet, where everyone is moving to a different way of collecting and reporting on data.

This is actually a good thing, because its much more flexible.

But as you know, growing pains can be difficult.

Keep in mind, GA4 isn’t just a rebrand of the old platform; it was completely rebuilt from the ground up.

What are the cool new features you can explore with GA4?

Discover What’s New About Google Analytics 4

GA4 is ridiculously customizable, which means you can choose what shows up in your main dashboard.

  • Universal Analytics allows for some customization: you can create custom dimensions, metrics, and events and create a limited number of custom reports. GA4 goes a lot further.

GA4 tracks events, not sessions or page views.

  • This event-based model tracks more useful information. In plain terms, this means you can tell Google exactly what you want to track. By tracking additional attributes outside of pageviews, GA4 can provide a clearer view of the entire customer journey.

  • GA4 supports full cross-device and cross-platform reporting
  • GA4 leverages automation and AI to provide predictive analytics
  • Universal Analytics only tracks past data. With GA4, Google allows businesses to see into the future by using machine learning to predict future behavior. For example, it can predict how likely a customer is to make a purchase in your app or churn, or it can predict revenue over the next 28 days.
