Decoding the Data Dissonance

Challenges

To address the tracking issues that TOMS Shoes India is experiencing with Google Analytics 4 (GA4), including the non-recording of conversions and the absence of Google Tag Manager Base Code, a strategic approach is required. This involves a thorough audit of the GA4 configuration, ensuring that the Tag Manager Base Code is correctly installed, and setting up necessary tags and triggers for accurate conversion tracking. Additionally, verifying that the correct data streams are active and testing across different user behaviors and devices is crucial to ensure comprehensive data capture and reliable reporting.

This detailed analysis and correction will help restore the full functionality of GA4, enabling TOMS Shoes India to accurately measure their website’s performance and user engagement.

Pinpointing the Issue Proactively

We Identified the Problem First

To address the tracking issues that Hoopr is facing with Google Analytics 4 (GA4), including the non-tracking of conversions, here are some steps to consider:

Identified Major Problem

 

We addressed a critical issue faced by the client related to their checkout process. The client had implemented a third-party checkout application to enhance the customer experience and streamline the checkout process. However, this integration inadvertently introduced additional codes to the checkout page.

This extra code interfered with the proper functioning of conversion tracking, leading to a significant challenge: conversions were not being accurately counted. Our team identified this issue as a key obstacle in the client’s eCommerce performance.

 

To resolve this, we conducted a thorough analysis of the checkout page and the added codes. We carefully revised the integration process, ensuring that the third-party application’s codes did not conflict with the website’s conversion tracking mechanisms. This involved technical adjustments and coordination with the app developers to maintain a smooth checkout experience while ensuring accurate conversion data was captured.

 

Post-resolution, we observed an immediate improvement in the accuracy of conversion tracking, which was crucial for the client’s understanding of customer behavior and the overall performance of their eCommerce platform. This solution not only rectified the tracking issue but also preserved the enhanced user experience provided by the checkout application.
