What is the difference between UA and GA4 reporting? 

Google Analytics 4 treats data differently. GA4 tracks everything as an event. And an event can have many parameters associated with it. For example the User ID. On the other hand, you have UA that uses Sessions to track everything the users do when they are on a website. 

How do the differences between GA4 and UA impact my reports?

GA4 introduced the concept of data streams. With these, you can now send data from different sources to a single property. This means you no longer need to create separate properties for mobile app activity, web app activity, and marketing site activity.

These are the differences you need to consider when migrating your reports to GA4: 

  • Data streams give you a full picture of user activity from one GA4 property
  • Event data and user data can easily accept custom parameters
  • The site search functionality will help you understand better what content is your audience looking for
  • Audiences are much more useful with GA4 when running campaigns through Google Ads

We have already created the following tutorial to show you how to create filters and controls on Google Data Studio.

Access all historical data and any period

You can review all your data and also combine it from old or blocked accounts with the new ones you create so you keep all the data consistent in a report. On Porter Metrics we retrieve all the historical data that the Facebook Ads API allows, which is generally 2 years.

In the same report view, you can combine data from multiple sources like Twitter, Google, Shopify, and more, so you truly have everything in one place.
