Hey guys. 

 

For beatcyclingclub.com we succesfullen added the GA tag, but now want to add Search Console as well. So... What's better?

 

Adding a single Google Tag Manager Tag from which to rule them all...? 

 

OR: just add another Search Console tag? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @jeroenrijskamp 

 

I'd always recommend using Tag Manager where possible just because it's so much easier to install/manage any other tags you may want to implement at a later date (think heatmapping tools, email marketing analytics blah blah blah).   Plus of course to benefits to page load time when only one tag has to be loaded rather than all of them.... 

 

I'm not sure how easy it is to set up with Shopify though - maybe there are some developers here who can give some guidance on that?

Thanks, I was betting on the loading time as well as important factor to
take into account. Thanks for confirming.

Curious to other experiences though? :-)

We prefer that too. Very nice to be able to control all/most code snippet installs through GTM.

Awesome, thanks. Was unsure whether Shopify allowed the GTM tag, but this
clears it up.
