In this blog, we’ll dive into the specific costs associated with SST and how TAGGRS calculates them efficiently, so you can choose a package that fits your website’s needs perfectly.

What is Server Side Tracking?

Just a quick note: what is Server Side Tracking again? Server Side Tracking is an alternative to traditional client side tagging. With client side tagging, pixels and cookies are placed directly in the user’s browser, meaning that the user data collected is sent from the browser to various services such as Google Analytics and Google Ads. This method has the disadvantage of being susceptible to blocking, such as by adblockers.

Server Side Tracking provides a solution for this. Instead of directly in the user’s browser, tracking scripts are loaded from your own domain, and the data is sent to your own server first. This creates an intermediate layer where you have control over what data is forwarded to which software.

The main benefits of SST are:

  • More data at your disposal (up to 30%)
  • GDPR proof
  • Faster website
  • More control over your data
  • More flexibility
