There’s a chance the data in the Real-Time report in Google Analytics is wrong for Universal Analytics properties, the company advises. Your account’s real-time data will look lower than it truly is if this occurs. Only by upgrading to Google Analytics 4 (GA4) can you be confident that your real-time data is reliable.
Google sent the caution in the form of a Help Center post. This is what the warning proclaims: “Your Universal Analytics Real-Time report may show sparse data due to a lack of recent events. The Real report in Google Analytics 4 is where you should go for the most up-to-date, actionable data in real time.”
Now is a great moment to start advertising on Pin and taking use of the platform’s new shoppable capabilities if you run an online store using WooCommerce.
You should think about switching to GA4 if you value real-time insights on website performance.
