Google Tag Manager
Google Tag Manager helps you manage the many tags, or snippets of code, that are related to your marketing campaign events. Google Tag Manager gives you the ability to add tracking tags to your site to measure the audience, or to personalize, retarget, or conduct search engine marketing initiatives.
Google Tag Manager directly transfers data and events to Google Analytics, Enhanced Ecommerce and other third-party analytics solutions, to produce a clear picture of how well your site, products, and promotions are performing.
You should have a Google Analytics and Tag Manager account to continue this process. The following instructions walk you through the process of configuring your Google accounts, configuring your Magento store, and creating a tag.
|1.||Sign in to your Google Analytics account.|
|2.||To enable Internal Site Search Tracking, do the following:|
|a.||Navigate to Select View > View Settings.|
|b.||Turn Site Search Tracking On.|
|c.||Set Query parameter to “q”.|
|d.||When complete, Save the settings.|

The following instructions show how to configure a new container with the basic settings. A sample Composer configuration (.json) file is used to simplify the process, importing to generate a tag in a new container. For this example, we recommend that you create a new container, rather than modify an existing container.
For additional information, see Google's Container export and import. These instructions walk-through importing a sample JSON to a new container.
|1.||Right-click this link: GMT_M2_Config_json.txt. Choose Save link as to download the sample text file. Then, do the following:|
|a.||Open the file in an editor, and save as GMT_M2_Config.json.|
|b.||Zip the file to produce an archive called GMT_M2_Config.zip.|
The zipped file will be uploaded directly to Google Tag Manager, and does not need to be copied to your server.
|2.||Navigate to Admin > Container > Import Container.|
|3.||Tap Choose container file and select the json file.|
|4.||Under Choose workspace, tap New. Enter a title and description, then tap Save.|
|5.||Select one of the following actions to import the file:|
- The Overwrite option should be selected for the new container.
- The Merge option should be selected is you are using an existing container.
|6.||Tap Preview to review the tags, triggers, and variables.|
|7.||To edit the Google Analytics ID that is referenced in variables, do the following:|
|a.||Navigate to Variables > User-Defined Variables.|
|b.||Choose Google Analytics. Then, update the placeholder (UA-xxxxxx-x) with your own GA ID.|
|8.||Follow Google’s instructions to add tags, triggers, and variables to the new container.|
If you have settings in another container that you want to use, they can be moved to the new container.
|9.||Tap Confirm when complete. Follow Google’s instructions to publish the new container.|
