No, the URL alone does not affect ranking in any visible way. That said, if you're creating a new site, I'd recommend using HTML5 pushState/replaceState instead: serve a fully rendered page on first load, use the history API to navigate within the site. AJAX-crawling is still supported (at least by Google), but there are cleaner alternatives nowadays.
As far as I've figured it out: With GTM you have to create tags within the tool to handle and match with updates on the dataLayer object via dataLayer.push("event", ...) on your page, which then again "redirects" your events over the tags to Analytics. https://developers.google.com/tag-manager/android/reference/com/google/tagmanager/DataLayer For the ga() ...
Yes, but you need to do a little work first.

Wow. That is odd. Google does funny things with GA and WMT from time to time and changes reporting as a result. I have seen changes from time to time myself. But not in the user count per day. I would bet it is a oddity with Google more than anything. I would make sure that the GA code on your site is up to date. Otherwise, I am not sure what else you can ...
You can use Google Analytics URL builder to construct your URL's in emails and then view visits to your website via these URL's in the 'Campaigns' section of Google Analytics and drill down, segment, create custom reports as you see fit.
As soon as the tracking code is installed on your website, it will start tracking. So yes, this is instant. Google will only show this instantly in Real Time reporting though and for all the other reports, could take up to 24 hours although is more often, about 3-4 hours. Google can take a number of days to actually update the tracking status message. There ...
