Where is Google Tag Manager?
Google Tag Manager is placed in the code of a website to track and manage all the tags on the website. Typically, one part of the code is inserted in the <head> portion of the website and the other is placed somewhere in the body of the website, preferably just after the <body> code.
What is the difference between Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics?
Google Analytics is a data collection tag that collects the data about your website’s traffic and shows it according to the location, age and other qualities of the visitors.
Google Tag manager, on the other hand, is a tool used to share analytics data across platforms and compare them. For example, you can add a tag for call conversion on your website and Tag manager will help you collect the data for call conversion on your website.
