📖 Release Notes

Attention

This project is looking for maintainers. Please see RFC for future of module.

Features

The module includes Google googletagmanager.com/gtag/js into your project and enables it with config you pass in as options.

  • Check the official reference gtagjs

Setup

  1. Add @nuxtjs/google-gtag dependency to your project
yarn add @nuxtjs/google-gtag # or npm install @nuxtjs/google-gtag
  1. Add @nuxtjs/google-gtag to the modules section of nuxt.config.js
{
  modules: [
    // Simple usage
    '@nuxtjs/google-gtag',

    // With options
    ['@nuxtjs/google-gtag', { /* module options */ }]
  ]
}

Using top level options

{
  modules: [
    '@nuxtjs/google-gtag'
  ],
  'google-gtag': {
    id: 'UA-XXXX-XX',
    config: {
      anonymize_ip: true, // anonymize IP 
      send_page_view: false, // might be necessary to avoid duplicated page track on page reload
      linker: {
        domains: ['domain.com','domain.org']
      }
    },
    debug: true, // enable to track in dev mode
    disableAutoPageTrack: false, // disable if you don't want to track each page route with router.afterEach(...).
    additionalAccounts: [{
      id: 'AW-XXXX-XX', // required if you are adding additional accounts
      config: {
        send_page_view: false // optional configurations
      }
    }]
  }
}

Options

id (required)

Google Analytics property ID.

config

  • Default: {}

Config options for gtagjs

debug

  • Default: false

Enable to track in dev mode.

disableAutoPageTrack

  • Default: false

Disable if you don't want to track each page route with router.afterEach(...).

additionalAccounts

  • Default: []

Usage

This module includes Google gtag in your NuxtJs project and enables every page tracking by default. You can use gtag inside of your components/functions/methods like follow:

this.$gtag('event', 'your_event', { /* track something awesome */})

To make sure that every page is tracked correctly

As the router code sometimes runs before head data is set correctly you can use following approach to make sure that everything is set correctly:

// make sure to set disableAutoPageTrack: true inside of nuxt.config.js
// inside of your Page.vue/Layout.vue file
 mounted() {
    if (process.browser) {
      this.$gtag('config', 'UA-XXXX-XXX', {
        page_title: this.$metaInfo.title,
        page_path: this.$route.fullPath,
      })
    }
  }

See official docs:
