    Hi, after connecting GTM through Site Kit, it’s being implemented twice on my site. I updated to the latest version, and it’s still there.

    Why isn’t there an option, like Analytics, to exclude adding the tracking code to the site?

    Hi @binghamdesign ! Thanks for opening a topic. We’re currently working on this detection and accompanying options.

    Currently, you can choose to keep your current implementation of Tag Manager (and not connect Tag Manager via Site Kit) or use Site Kit’s connection.

    Did you already have Tag Manager’s code implemented on the site before Site Kit?

    @binghamdesign we’ve just released version 1.1.0 and advise updating. Also, feel free to follow up if the above helped or if you have any questions.

    @binghamdesign I will mark your topic as resolved since it appears you’ve made the adjustments as needed currently on the site. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

    I am a little confused here… we have Site Kit installed and had it inject the GA snippet. We also have GTM connected to Site Kit and inside GTM we have a tag for GA. Is that going to be an issue?

    same question!

    It turned out to be an issue, @samdive – If you want to use GTM to deploy GA code, disable GA snippet insertion in SiteKit. Otherwise you end up sending stats to GA twice.

    @cryptochrome Thanks for the update. Having the Google Analytics tag placed via Tag Manager can impact reporting if you already have an Analytics container configured and setup.

    There is a GitHub issue you can follow below in relation to this issue.
