Google Tag Manager-Phrase Overview

Google Tag Manager is a Tag Management System launched by Google in October 2012. It allows the website users to quickly and easily manage JavaScript and HTML Tags on the websites and mobile apps. This feature enables the user to add all tracking codes without the intervention of development professionals. Shortly and crisply, GTM helps in an easier installation of JavaScript codes on your website.
