What is Universal Analytics?

In April next year, Google will no longer be supporting Google Analytics (GA). Classic GA will be deprecated and instead, you are advised to upgrade to their new platform, Universal Analytics (UA) which became the standard on April 2014.

Of course, that question really means, “Should we switch from Google Analytics (GA) now and not in 2016 when Google switches it off for good? When should I invest in Universal Analytics? Is UA as good as the hype, or is it just a fancy renaming exercise?”

In short, yes, it is well worth switching as soon as possible. Why? As well as putting you in control, UA has a host of benefits that GA doesn’t have. They are so useful you’ll want to get your hands on them. But first a bit of background.
