HERE'S THE SOLUTION:

  1. In Google Analytics create a new property.
  2. In the new property setup panel there's a link "Show Advanced Options" at the bottom.
  3. In Advanced Options there's an option "Create a Universal Analytics property". Using this option will give you the option to either create both a GA4 and a UA id in which case it creates 2 properties and links them or you can just create a single UA id.

 

it's the end of the year and I recently saw this - after lots of rounds, mil gracias! 🙌

It is me and my nontech-experience, but I can't find 'Show Advanced Options" at the bottom, nor
the option "Create a Universal Analytics property". Can someone help me? Maube with some screenshots or so?

In Google Analytics Admin section you need to be in the middle "Properties" panel and click "Create a New Property" and then towards the bottom in blue you should see "show advanced options" it's not a button or anything so not super obvious that it opens up a new section, but it does. I just did this.

Can anyone tell me whether there are any functionality issues with using the G-tag through the site code injection? I.e. will conversion tracking work automatically as it does if you put the UA code into the external API keys section?

Oh Baby(face)! Thank you!

Thank you so much for this! Could you possibly advise whether I should insert the GA4 Gtag into the header AS WELL AS entering the UA code into the External API Key field?

Been going around in circles a bit - was paying for a google analytics through Square which gave me specific locations, even IP addresses of visitors. Didn't want to pay $75/yr so I cancelled it. Tried setting up google analytics by starting a google account and set up the properties as guided but it would not accept my GA numbers, said it had to be UA so I sent into the google account and found the option for UA. Customer service sent me this in response saying I didn't have to paste anything into the header, just paste the "UA" code. Works but not giving much info. 

So, are some of you saying you paste into the header anyway and does that give you better results with the information? 

Here is what customer service sent me:

Yes, if you are wanting to integrate Google Analytics with your Squarespace site, all you would need to do is enter your  Google Analytics tracking ID in the Google Analytics Account Number field, as described here:

Using Google Analytics with Squarespace

To clarify, this tracking ID would be formatted as:

UA-XXXXX-YY

For help finding this, refer to Google's guide below:

Set up the Analytics global site tag 

You'll only need to follow the steps under the 

Find your Tracking ID and global site tag

section. You don't need to use the rest of the steps from that article since you won't need to use code for this process. 

Once this is added, tt may take up to 24 hours for site statistics to populate in Google Analytics.

Please let us know if you have additional questions, we're available 24/7.

Being the case that I want to keep UA running parallel to GA4...

Does this code replace the existing UA code, or should I keep them both in the injection? If the answer is "replace," the footer would then be blank, correct?

Also, I imagine that this option OR GTM is sufficient, but both aren't necessary?

Is there any other code needed? I inserted by G-code into the footer (header has a kajabi integration script), and now it just shows my G-code at the bottom of my website.

You need to add the entire script, not just the ID.

Thanks to all for posting here about this issue. I had created a property in the new Google Analytics 4 mode, and of course the code didn't work because it's G- not UA-. So then I created another property with a slightly different name (same account/website though) and chose the Advanced Options and followed the posters' directions from there. SS support gave little guidance on a solution for this, so happy to be a part of this group so that I can move forward with this build.

Just one guy's opinion, but I think the most effective way for you to add this is by investing some time into learning how to work in Google Tag Manager. You can add the tag manager code to your website and from there you can setup your Google, Facebook, and other tracking pixels and events. 

Measure School is a great resource and they have a lot of free step-by-step tutorials on how to DIY this on Youtube.

THANK YOU !! I was literally going crazy all day. I'm new to this whole thing and created a Google Analytics account but couldn't find the UA number for the life of me. that's just because I didn't have any. deleted my old and made a new one following these steps and was able to integrate it to my SS account. thanks again !!
