Google and Meta are making major changes in the new cookieless era to remain effective and competitive based on the new data. Due to this, both companies are taking steps to replace, upgrade, and usher in a new era of digital analytics by eliminating obsolete tools and procedures. The two providers now advise that your website’s metrics parameters be located on a parallel Cloud Server (server side tracking) so that actions can be counted more accurately, data analysis can be done more effectively, and advertising actions can be implemented after studying the data of your website’s visitors. But first, let’s take a quick look at the modifications each tool will experience.
Beginning July 1, 2023, Google will no longer provide Google Analytics Universal (3), and all of the data it held will be lost as a result. You must swiftly upgrade to Google Analytics 4 (GA4) in order to start collecting data and logging user activities. We draw attention to the fact that Google explicitly indicates that previous GA3 data will be lost starting on July 1, 2023, and that switching to GA4 as soon as feasible is therefore regarded vital in order to begin building a history as soon as possible. If you choose to maintain the older data, you must use technologies like Google BigQuery to take the appropriate decisions.
Additionally, Google hasn’t specified a deadline but is moving toward the cookieless era, in which your website’s analytics parameters should be on a separate cloud server (server side tracking) in order to support marketing initiatives. examines the process and potential for implementing the consent policy on Android devices for users (as already implemented on Apple devices)

Installing the Facebook Conversion API, also known as FB CAPI, is officially advised beginning on January 1, 2023, according to Meta. If the new technology (FB CAPI), which is also Cookieless, is used, advertising actions like Remarketing and targeted ads may now be enabled in a much better and safer way. And in this case, a parallel Cloud Server’s (server side tracking) assistance is required.
