Tag and Tracking Implementation: Client side vs Server Side

Implementing tracking techniques is critical for knowing how users interact with websites and mobile applications. Server side tagging and client side tagging are the two most common techniques in this domain. As an expert in the field, you are already familiar with these ideas. However, a thorough understanding of the technical features, terminology, and distinctions between these two methodologies is required. In this post, we will look at the fundamentals of server-side and client-side tagging, including technical features, pros and cons, and definitions of both contexts.
A client-side tracking website uses a container on the page to transfer measurement data to multiple third-party tracking platforms. This container operates on the user’s browser and has a direct connection to your tracking tools’ mother server. Server-side tracking bridges the gap between the two by allowing you to develop your own tracking server. Google Tag Manager server-side tagging is hosted on the servers (Like: Google Cloud Platform, Stape.io, or your own server) and functions as a middleman between your client-side tracking and marketing vendors. Data is delivered from the browser to the GTM server-side instance and then forwarded to your tracking tools. This allows you to control data from being sent to your tracking tools and save data resources, resulting in a better user experience. In this blog, I will walk you through the process of configuring Google Tag Manager server-side tagging.
