What is the purpose of the Google Tag Manager?
Google Tag Manager (GTM) is a service launched by Google that provides website owners with a tool to simplify tracking for events. In the case of an eCommerce store, such events can be an added product to the cart, a viewed item in the catalog, added shipping information, etc.
This tool provides store owners with a simple user-friendly interface accessible in the browser. Using the google tag manager, eCommerce service store admins can easily manipulate tracking tags without a deep technical knowledge and source code editing.
GTM in general has the following parts:
- Triggers are used to launch tag execution on specific event
- Variables keep information from tags and triggers
Tracking is done through those code snippets. Users of Google Tag Manager can create multiple tags for different events they would like to track. Gathered data then can be directly sent to analytic services like Google Analytics to get enhanced reports on events in a Magento 2 store.
