I think that the most important point is that creating a local copy of that file is totally counterproductive. The reason is very simple. The file comes in two versions (ga.js and the older analytics.js) and can be served over 2 protocols (HTTP and HTTPS). This means that the browser only ever needs to keep at most 4 cache entries, irrespective of the number ...

If anyone ever comes across this same question, I found a strategy that helped me out. I used Screaming Frog and set up custom filters to contain the tags that were in my Analytics and Tag Manager accounts.

I am struggling with GA too. I cannot find the query string parameters in IE, but I can use the Developer Tool in Chrome. Click the Network tab and filter the GIF file sent to Google server, then click the name of GIF file and click on the header. On the bottom you can see Query String Parameters that lists all the parameters. Then you can compare that with ...

That is likely due to referral spam. A spammer is likely using your Google Analytics tracking ID so that activities on their own website end up getting recorded in your own Analytics account. To check, assign "hostname" as your secondary dimension when checking your data and you will see which website is actually the culprit. To get rid of your spam data ...

Google was forced to show this when the EU regulators got very antsy about data protection and gave them a deadline to sort out how they use customer data and declare that usage. ZDNet have a summary of the issue here and if you're really keen, you can read the whole ammendment here
