Performance Max and Smart Shopping Reports Are Now Available In Google Analytics 4 🎊🔍

Performance Max and Smart Shopping campaign data has been included to reports for GA4 properties.

Reports for GA4 properties are being updated by Google Analytics with a piece of data that counts visitors from Performance Max and Smart Shopping campaigns.

Google Sets a 2024 Deadline for Phase-out of Tracking Cookies 📈🎉

Google is also seeking to adopt its own, comparable control choices for Android, while it also looks to phase out third-party monitoring cookies on the web, in line with increasing data privacy regulations. Social networking sites are still feeling the effects of Apple's ATT user privacy upgrade.

To offer the industry more time to provide comments and prepare for the impending change, Google today announced that it is extending the testing period for its Privacy Sandbox and its alternative tracking tools.

These preliminary experiments have assisted Google in enhancing and honing its technology. However, the development partners claim that more time is needed to decide on the best course of action.

This strategy, which currently offers the most viable alternative to cookie tracking, will let advertisers and publishers use topics for tracking rather than providing specific information on specific user behaviors and interests. This will protect user information while also meeting the needs of third parties for data.
