Google Analytics 4 Events
Google Analytics 4 Events can be classified into four types:
- automatic events
- enhanced measurement events
- recommended events
- custom events
- Automatic events are generated automatically by Google Analytics 4 when users interact with the website, such as page views, scrolling, and outbound clicks.
- Enhanced measurement events are an extension of automatic events and provide more detailed information about user interactions, such as file downloads, video engagement, and site search.
- Recommended events are predefined events that cover common user interactions, such as form submissions, video plays, and ad clicks. These events are recommended by Google Analytics 4 and can be easily implemented with the help of the user interface.
- Custom events are events that are defined by the user and are not covered by the other three types of events. Custom events can be created based on specific user interactions that are important to the website, such as clicks on a particular button or engagement with a specific element on the page.
By tracking all four types of events in Google Analytics 4, businesses can gain a more comprehensive understanding of user behavior on their website and use this data to optimize their website and improve the user experience.
