How Does The Google Tag Manager Work?
You just need to place a small snippet of code on your website. This snippet of code connects your app to the tag manager servers. You can now make use of the web-based user interface to install the tracking codes on your website, like – the Google Analytics tags.
Now, you can configure triggers to fire when an event occurs. An event can be something like – a page load, a tap on a screen, or a form submission. It’s all done through the Tag Manager’s web interface.
When a user interacts with your content, triggers will be evaluated based on the events that you have specified, and the tags will fire accordingly.
Validate GTM Extension
To check if the Google Tag Manager is correctly installed, the data on your website should be displayed in the data layer of the chrome extension.
You must have installed the Google Chrome browser extension - Tag Assistant (by Google). This extension will validate if the GTM is working correctly for your website.
