Quote of the episode from Dara: "It feels like a bit of a backward step because one of the biggest benefits I think when GA4 was announced was the fact that it was so much less restricted." --- Dan and Dara are back, and this week are discussing the recent update from Google Analytics where they are now enforcing their Data API quotas. Since 7th November 2022, Looker Studio reports that connect to Google Analytics 4 data are subject to GA4 Data API quotas. Reports that exceed these quotas will break, and Dan is more than annoyed... A massive thanks to Rogier Kuiper who suggested this topic! Check out Dara's blog on the quotas and how to deal with them, as well as some actions you can take - https://bit.ly/3irmiN2. Here are all the official quotas for the GA4 Data API - https://bit.ly/3AW6qZp.

Quote of the episode from Dara: "just because you have been using UA360 doesn't mean you're going to need, I'm just going to call it GA4-360, you don't necessarily need it" --- This week Dan and Dara discuss the recent announcement that the sunsetting of GA360 has been pushed back 9 months to the 1st July 2024. The news comes bundled with other new feature announcements such as custom channel groupings, automatic GA4 property creation and native bidding in DV360. What does this mean, why did they do it, and what now? These are some of the questions Dan and Dara discuss. The blog post from Google with the announcements is http://bit.ly/3UL2ySz.

You need to bring people in from, you know, a wide range of different backgrounds in order to understand the complexities of disabilities, because it's not just a kind of a one size fits all approach." Another quote of the episode from Ellen: "Google Analytics 4 seems to be that tiny little bit more accessible in terms of the functionality and where to press and it's a lot more clearer of where to press. However, you still can't use a screen reader, which I found quite astonishing." Yet another quote of the episode from Ellen: "It's quite surprising for a company like Google, especially when you know they're very driven in terms of trying to attract people with invisible differences such as dyslexia and autism and ADHD. They seem to understand the untapped talent that these types of people have, yet then they're being excluded from being able to access Google Analytics, which I find a bit strange. It's like, how are you connecting those dots? It just doesn't make sense to me." --- This week Dan and Dara are joined by Ellen Cole - an award-winning Marketing, PR and Social Media marketer with a focus on inclusivity and accessibility in digital. Ellen discusses their experience working with invisible differences, and how businesses large and small can make positive steps towards making their social media and marketing more inclusive for all.

Quote of the episode from Dara: "the business is only just about starting to understand analytics in general and now they're being told there's this new version of all of that data." --- This week Dan and Dara are joined by Stacey Harper, a fellow GA4 expert and trainer! They discuss war stories, hidden features and the huge importance of a migration strategy/plan for migrating to GA4. And remember, never ever push the 'UA events in GA4' button!

Let me spend way too many hours writing some blog posts about how you can use it" Quote of the episode from Dan: "a lot of people don't know that Google isn't doing what it says on the tin" Quote of the episode from Dara: "sometimes people ask for more customisation, but then when you get it you don't necessarily know what to do with it" --- This week Dan and Dara are joined by JJ Reynolds to chat about the recent rebranding of Data Studio to Looker Studio and what it means for the rest of us.

Katie talks though the process of putting together her presentation and getting up and speaking in front of a croud for the very first time.

Quote of the episode from Dara: "I get what you're saying about how maybe there's an argument for this one, but I'm greedy and now I want to look at device type by query string parameters and I can't, so I'm upset." --- This week Dan and Dara react and discuss the recent announcement of the schema changes in the Google Analytics 4 (GA4) Data API. Are Google going backwards by (re)introducting scope compatibility, or is this what was always missing and will now help the transition from Universal Analytics?

**Suggest a topic or guest by filling out the form https://bit.ly/3MNtPzl, or emailing podcast@measurelab.co.uk to drop Dan and Dara a message directly.** --- Quote of the episode from Dan: "Time and time again, we get people with Universal Analytics and they're using their data and just assume it's complete, without realising their cookie banner is not tracking a bunch of stuff when people don't accept the cookie to be set." Quote of the episode from Dara: "People who are desperately trying to get upskilled on GA4 then have to explain GA4 to the wider business, who maybe still don't really fully understand Universal Analytics." --- This week Dan and Dara reflect on the current state of play with Google Analytics 4 (GA4), with migrations being a hot topic at the moment for Measurelab. But they try to also look beyond purely the migrations, and discuss what they think might be coming around the corner for GA4 - especially when Universal Analytics (UA) is turned off in July 2023.
