Whether you are creating a new analytics implementation or trying to solve a problem with an existing one; testing and debugging is a vital part of the digital analytics process.

In October 2016 Google Tag Manager was updated with a new container type to track AMP pages. AMP is an open source project allowing publishers and media sites to create webpages with content that loads significantly faster than regular web pages.
Accelerated Mobile Pages or AMP is an open source initiative aimed at making it easy to present static web content on mobile devices. This means that AMP pages and their content are significantly quicker to load than other pages. News, blogs and other publishing sites are key users of AMP as their focus is on delivering large amounts of content to their users.
If you run a blog, content site or single page site then you should implement Scroll Tracking. As the name implies Scroll tracking will show how far down the page your users are scrolling. This will help you decide which type of content is keeping your audience’s attention and which isn’t.
