*First post alert - go easy on me!* 😉
We use Google Analytics (and Google Ads, Hotjar, etc), and our new site wasn't getting great scores using the Google Page Speed Insights tool, so I decided to switch to Google Tag Manager to manage our tags and use sequencing etc.
This all appears to be working fine and our score has improved significantly but when I look at the site code in Chrome developer tools I see that Google Analytics still appears to be firing, outside of GTM. (I have cleared all code from the header/footers for this domain, and there are no 'all domains' headers or footers set up)
This got me hunting around Hubspot settings... If I naviage to Pages > Integrations, I realise at some point I integrated Google Analytics here, by ticking the box and adding the UA code.
Question - do I need to clear this off now GA tracks using GTM? (i.e. is it 'double firing'?) Or, alternatively, should I remove it from GTM and leave this integration here for any reason? (i.e., is it 'better' in anyway than manually having the code in header/footer?)
Additionally, I noticed on this same page you can now integrate directly with GTM - would that be a 'better' way to do it then manually add the GTM code in header/footer for the site?
Any advice greatly appreciated!
