    ○ New site with GA4
    ○ New site with both Universal Analytics (old) and GA4
    ○ Add GA4 to a site with Universal Analytics

    View full-size slide

  11. My Recommendation
    Run both Universal Analytics (old) and GA4
    (new).
    ● You’ll want to start collecting GA4 data soon.
    ● You’ll probably need to use UA data in the near
    term
    Bonus tip:
    ● Your client should set up their own GA account
    ● You don’t want to be tied to them forever
