    After installing Site Kit plugin.
    It created (I think so) new Analytics property of GA4 (please forgive me I am not that good in naming account, property, view). But I do use Google Tag Manager and I have my Google UA in it. So there are to analytics tags on my site: One directly in the code another one in Google Tag Manager (which code is also in site code).
    Yetseerday (27 april) Tag assistant addons for chrome showed 4 tags on my this page
    https://kudretmakine.com/
    and 2 tags on this page https://kudretmakine.com/ru/
    Now (28 april) there are 2 tags on each page.
    Actually I don’t even know is it good or bad when there are different number of tags on different pages of my site and when it is 4 tags (I think it is too much) on one page, but I feel that something is wrong. Please help

    All I need is two GA counters (GA4 and UA) to be on my website through Google tag manager

    Hello @ylyas and thank you for your question and the detailed screenshots. When connecting your Analytics module through Site Kit you can choose to either create a new property or select an existing one from your account. It looks like in your case you may have created a new property which is what you are pointing out on your screenshot.

    From what I understand, you already had an existing Analytics property connected through your Tag Manager setup. In this scenario you could go into your Site Kit settings by going to Site Kit > Settings > Connected Services > Analytics > Edit and stop Site Kit placing the UA code on your site.

    You could also delete the property you no longer wish to keep by following the steps here.

    Hope this helps and please let me know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you for prompt reply @adamdunnage
    Yes I had only UA before. And when I was installing new Site Kit I deliberately created GA4 because since June 2023 UA will stop working. And Google himself asked to install GA4 asap.
    I turned off “Place Google Analytics 4 code” like here
    But tag assistant still show another tag except GTM’s tag

    @ylyas thanks for the further information and screenshots. To confirm that the code you can see here in your screenshot is visible for admins only, and is the opt out setting within Site Kit’s analytics setting since you have chosen to not place the snippets. You can confirm this by checking the source code for your site while not logged in to admin and it should not be there.

    Checking your site via the tag assistant everything else looks correct. There is 1 UA snippet and 1 GA4 snippet recording on their site with your current setup so feel free to leave this how it is if you are happy or you can choose to have Site kit place your snippets instead of Tag Manager but that’s entirely your choice.

    Hope this helps to answer your questions.

    Oh really there is no that code when I use guest mode of browser.
    So I choose to have only one tag of GTM. And if it is all good now, then it is okay with me too.
    The thing that bothered me is that first blue tag “Global site tag (gtag.js)” on tag assistant addons list, I still don’t know what it is.
    If it must be there and it is normal, then I agree)
    Thank you @adamdunnage very much!

    @ylyas Yes I can confirm that everything looks correct from my side. As for the tag you mention in your screenshot that looks to be a tag set up in your Tag Manager setup so I would advise checking there if you do not wish to have this tag on your site.
