Duplicate tag warning with WooCommerce

  • Hi,
    I am getting this error message on a site using the DuracellTom Google tag Manager and WooCommerce.
    Screenshot: http://note.io/NeaN74 (Despite this error message, the plugin is indeed up to date).
    The site is also using the WordPress SEO WooCommerce extension.
    Please let me know what you recommend.
    Thanks!

    Hi Josh,

    Are you using the latest version of WooCommerce? (2.1.5)

    Are you using the separate Google Analytics integration plugin for WooCommerce located here:
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-google-analytics-integration/
    ?

    This message shows up if the plugin finds an Analytics property ID in the settings of WooCommerce. If you are using Google Analytics tags in Tag Manager this could cause issues. Not necessary, it depends on how you are using GTM.

    Cheers,
    Thomas

    Hi Thomas,
    Thanks for your quick reply!
    Yes, I am using the latest version of WooCommerce.
    I am NOT using the Woo Google Analytics Integration plugin. Is that your recommendation?
    Thanks again for your fast help!

    Did you use the Google Analytics feature of WooCommerce in the previous version (2.0.x)?

    Yes, I did.

    OK, it seems to me that WC simply left the obsolete GA setting in its settings, this is why my plugin alerts you about the possible issue.

    I would suggest to simply ignore the message.
    I am going to figure out how to fix this in the next release of my plugin.

    Hi Thomas,

    I had to jump into this thread and ask a question on this topic. I too get the “Possible duplacate tag issue: you should disable Google Analytics tracking in WooCommerce settings by leaving Google Analytics ID field empty to prevent any duplicate tags being used on the frontend!” warning.
    I have your plug in installed, along with:
    1.WooCommerce Google AdWords conversion tracking tag
    and
    2. WooCommerce Google Analytics Integration

    When looking through the source code of a page, I don’t really see anything being duplicated, but I’m not for sure. Within your plugin, on the “blacklist tags” tab, I do not have anything checked except “Disable feature: control everything on Google Tag Manager interface”.

    Should I just ignore the warning, or do I possibly have something duplicated I need to look for and remove?

    Thanks.

    This warning is generated to tell you that IF you are using a separate Google Analytics plugin too AND you implement Analytics within your GTM container you could harm your analytics data.

    That’s all about 🙂

    Thanks!

    Thanks! That makes sense.
    This is causing concern among clients. Is it possible to change it to say, “Note: Enabling BOTH a Google Analytics plugin and the DuracellTom Google Tag Manager plugin could produce inaccurate analytics data”?
    Is it possible to only display this on sites that have a google analytics plugin enabled?

    Thanks for your feedback, I will update the message to be more precise.
    There is a bug currently in my plugin: if you used the GA tracking of WooCommerce 2.0.x and updated to 2.1.x, my plugin will report this message regardless of whether you are using the new separate GA tracking for WooCommerce

    Thank you so much!
