What does the transitioning process to GA4 entail?

No matter whether you are transitioning from UA to GA4 or setting up Google Analytics for the first time, it’s important to get the system up and running in a well organized manner. Every parameter collected should have a practical use-case for the business and there shouldn’t be any dead-weight in the setup which doesn't carry any value and is just accumulating data.

Case Study: Transitioning from Universal Analytics to GA4

UA to GA4 Migration for a Complex Website

Problem
In order to be ready for when GA4 will be the main reporting suite, Gexa Energy wanted to have at least 1-2 years of historical data and get GA4 installed side-by-side with UA as early as possible.

Solution
Speero worked closely with Gexa Energy’s team to learn about their business and its need for digital analytics data. We then implemented GA4 together with BigQuery integration and 6 different dashboards.

Outcome
Accurate data (compared to the backend) and tailor-made dashboards for different teams and functions. Besides having actionable data within GA4, Gexa Energy can now access raw hit-level data from BigQuery using SQL or almost any BI tool on the market. Since their data warehouse already had data from various sources, including backend and Google Ads, these can now be combined with user data from GA4 to allow for a much more detailed user journey analysis.

GA4 transitioning service FAQs

How long does it take to transition our website to GA4?

Depending on your site and use case complexity it might vary widely. On average, the transition generally takes between 30-60 days to complete.

Do I have to carry over the whole setup from UA to GA4?

No. First of all, there is a high chance that the old setup carries some dead waste that you are no longer using nor requiring. So it is a great time to have some housekeeping during the initial audit.

Secondly, not every parameter is convertible one-to-one from UA to GA4. And it is a good thing as GA4’s new event-based data model allows you to collect and ask better questions from the data.

Will I get to keep my old UA data?

It depends.

There is no automatic transfer mechanism available to keep old UA data for the new setup. There are methods to export some of the old data and in some ways even to join with the new dataset, but those occasions should be looked at case-by-case whether it makes any sense to do so.
