Conversion Modelling may save your digital sales in this new G4 Cookieless world.
Yes, that’s right. On March 16th, 2022, Google announced that it’s relatively brand new Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is the new default standard (choosing to sunset Google’s Universal Analytics). So UA is going bye-bye for good as of summer 2023. So after an uncomfortable silence, you might be thinking, “How am I going to track my conversions without Universal Analytics? How can I track sales and conversion in a world without cookies?”.
