Follow the steps below to Add Google Tag Manager ( GTM ) in AMP for WP:

  • From your WordPress dashboard, go to your sidebar. Head on over to AMP option panel -> Click on Settings -> Analytics -> Google Tag Manager

  • Google Tag Manager: If you enable Google Tag Manager we can track particular tags on websites.

  • Advanced Google Analytics: If you enable this option you can  Enter your Advanced Analytics code here inside this code you have to write account number for ex :(“account”: “UA-xxxxxxx-x”).
