So you probably heard that Google Tag Manager is a great way to manage all of the tags on your website, but you probably don’t know how to implement them. I had a lot of trouble when I first learned how to do this.
Normally, you would go into the file managers of your website, take the code, put it in either the header wherever it’s asking you to, and you would do that. But it can be very intensive if you have a ton of tags, and that’s where Tag Manager comes in and simplifies things too.
Copy the desired code
Copy the desired code tag and click new. I will name this Hotjar, which will hide your configuration tag.
Create a new tag
Go to your container and click New Tag.
Click custom HTML
Give your tag a name, and then click tag configuration. Scroll down to custom and click on Custom HTML.
Verify the code
Verify the code on the desired service to ensure that the code is working.
And now, you can do this for as many tags as you need on your website.
