GA4 is the upgraded version of Google Analytics (e.g. Universal or Classic Analytics).
CIAO, goals. Hello, Conversions!
Those who are familiar with the old Google Analytics (e.g. Universal or Classic Analytics) are already aware of the term “Goals”. If we need to track conversions, then we need to create Goals.

Don’t think that GA4 will be the most difficult to understand. We are here to help you to understand in very simple steps.
