How to check Google Analytics settings

Have you set up Google Analytics correctly for your site?

If Google Analytics is not set correctly, the data on the page you want to measure cannot be measured, or incorrect measurement results may occur.
This section introduces the precautions of Google Analytics settings and tools that can check the appropriateness of Google Analytics settings.

1. Notes on Google Analytics Settings

Google Analytics settings range from simple settings such as time zone and currency to advanced settings such as specifying ad parameters and media.

If the setting items are incorrect, problems such as the inability to obtain data for a specific page, the aggregation of multiple sites, and the inability to obtain advertisements and referrers will occur.

In addition, data cannot be retroactively aggregated in Google Analytics. In other words, even if you modify the settings later, the past data may not be usable with incorrect values. Therefore, it is necessary to review Google Analytics settings as soon as possible so that the correct data can be calculated. However, it is very difficult to review Google Analytics settings on your own.
