Secure Your Universal Analytics Data Now: Transitioning to Google Analytics 4 with Ease

As the digital landscape evolves, so do the tools we rely on to interpret our web traffic and user interactions. A significant shift is on the horizon for businesses and professionals using Google’s Universal Analytics (UA).

Google has announced that UA will be deprecated on July 1st, leaving users with the urgent task of transitioning to Google Analytics 4 (GA4). This transition is not just a matter of adjusting to a new platform; it involves the critical task of preserving historical data that will not automatically migrate to GA4.

The Challenge Ahead

Universal Analytics has been an invaluable asset for understanding web analytics, but with its sunsetting, users face the challenge of potentially losing access to their historical data.

This data isn’t just numbers; it represents insights into customer behavior, traffic trends, and the effectiveness of marketing strategies over the years. Unfortunately, Google will not automatically migrate this historical data to GA4, which means businesses must act swiftly to back up their data manually.

The Data Backup Conundrum

For professional Universal Analytics users, there’s an option to set Data Export into BigQuery, but it’s important to note that this method can only backfill 13 months of data.

Those in need of older data must leverage the API, a task that requires specific technical expertise. Recognizing the importance of this data and the complexities involved in its migration, our company has developed a tailored solution to assist businesses during this critical transition.
