How Do I Install Google Tag Manager on Wix?

Last updated on January 1, 2023 @ 10:40 am

Google Tag Manager is a free tool that allows you to manage and deploy marketing tags (snippets of code used for tracking and marketing purposes) on your website or mobile app without having to edit your code. Once the Google Tag Manager container snippet has been added to your site, you can add and update your own tags from the Google Tag Manager interface without having to involve a developer. This means you can make tag changes on your own, without having to wait for someone else to do it for you.
