Improve your Tracking results with TAGGRS Enhanced Tracking Script


Getting reliable, accurate and in-depth tracking data is a challenge these days. With the rise of ad-blockers and the increasing importance of privacy, it is becoming increasingly difficult to collect complete and useful data. This is where the TAGGRS Enhanced Tracking Script comes in.

Key points

  • Bypassing Ad-blockers: The TAGGRS Enhanced Tracking Script bypasses ad-blockers by modifying the default GTM code, preventing it from being recognized and blocked by ad-blockers.
  • Increased Measurability: With the use of the Enhanced Tracking Script, you can expect an increase in measurability of 1-2% for both client-side and server-side tracking.
  • Simple Implementation: Setting up TAGGRS Enhanced Tracking Script is as simple as adding a piece of code in the header and body of your page + creating a client in the client container.

Why the Enhanced Tracking Script?

The Enhanced Tracking Script is one of the many benefits of Server Side Tracking and a solution specifically designed to address the challenges of traditional tracking scripts. It uses an approach to collect and report tracking data even when ad-blockers are active. It provides a measurability increase of 1-2%, for both client-side and server-side tracking.

How does the Enhanced Tracking Script work?

The secret to the Enhanced Tracking Script is in changing the GTM Tracking script. Ad-blockers often recognize Google Tag Manager’s tracking script and then block the data stream completely. The Enhanced Tracking Script counters this by modifying the standard tracking script so that ad-blockers do not recognize the code as GTM.


The importance of an Enhanced Tracking Script

The results of implementing an Enhanced Tracking Script are promising. The tool helps increase the measurability of both client-side and server-side tracking.

The use of the Enhanced Tracking Script does not increase the differences between client side tagging and server side tagging, but ensures that both increase in quantity.
