If you are looking for a way to learn even more about your online presence, analytical tags are a good way to find out more information about the traffic on your website. By having an analytical tag system on your site you can; see what visitors are clicking on your site, how they got to your site and what they took out of their cart. These tags can be of great value and assistance for all marketing strategies.

Tags, in the sense of Google Analytics (GA), are bits of code you embed in your websites’ HTML or JavaScript to extract specific information. Tags are now effective tools to help marketing teams find out what users visit their site, for how long and what they are doing online.
