Howdy, 

 

Have any of you guys used Google Tag Manager before?

 

Trying to set it up on a site so that it tracks clicks through to PDFs as an event. I've followed this guide but had no luck. It doesn't appear to be 'triggering'. 

 

The site I've placed it on is here.

 

Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?

 

Cheers.

Okay, already figured out where I might have gone slightly wrong... The track type was set as 'Pageview', so I've changed this to 'Event' now. Let's see if that makes a difference.

The only thing i know about Tag Manager is that BrightonMike regularly uses its name as a swear word.

Ha! 

 

I've given up for now, just added a onClick event for some of the links to PDFs. Going to have a play with Tag Manager at the weekend and see if I can crack it.

I've never met any one who's had anything other than a stinking headache from dealing with it :P

Google Tag Manager is a free tool that allows you manage and deploy marketing tags (snippets of code or tracking pixels) on your website (or mobile app) without having to modify the code.
