I am setting up AMP for my news site. Does anyone know if there is Google Tag Manager Support? I know you can use Google Analytics. I wonder if I use GA tracking code on all /amp/ pages it will track double.


I originally tried adding the GTM using Glue for Yoast SEO and it did track the pages. However, that resulted in 2 AMP validation errors:

AMP Google Tag Manager validation errors

The proper way of implementing the tag as of right now is via amp-pixel or amp-analytics. I used amp-analytics tag myself. First you would add this in the head:

  <script async custom-element="amp-analytics"

And then the tracking code goes in the body inside this tag using JSON:

 <amp-analytics type="googleanalytics" id="analytics1"></amp-analytics>

Google Tag Manager now added AMP support. All you need is to

  1. create a GTM container of type "AMP"
  2. Include the following code in <head>

     <!-- AMP Analytics --><script async custom-element="amp-analytics" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-analytics-0.1.js"></script>
  3. Include the following code into <body>

    <!-- Google Tag Manager -->
    <amp-analytics config="https://www.googletagmanager.com/amp.json?id=GTM-XXXXXX&gtm.url=SOURCE_URL" data-credentials="include"></amp-analytics>

  • When I try this, I get the following error "Fetch API cannot load googletagmanager.com/……ost%3A8080%2Fde-de%2Famp&__amp_source_origin=http%3A%2F%2Flocalhost%3A8080. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'localhost:8080' is therefore not allowed access. The response had HTTP status code 404. If an opaque response serves your needs, set the request's mode to 'no-cors' to fetch the resource with CORS disabled.. – Einar Ólafsson Jun 29 '17 at 14:03
