It does what it says and says what it does. It offers a couple extras related to GTM snippets- ie. data layer naming and some tracking pref
Ease of use
Very easy to use. No issues.
Did not need any.
Docs did the simple that you barely need them. Also UI tooltips are useful.
I used this to: I wanted GTM snippets to be places as per Google best practices and this did it. I was happy with my options with our canned theme and framework. Our SEO extension is outdated and was placing the snippets both in the body tag area. This took care of it.
Yes. Tick.
Ease of use
Yes. Tick.
Not needed but other's reviews make me confident.
You can't go wrong with basic usage.
I used this to: Client sites and my sites. Thank you guys. Thank you
Owner's reply: Hi Justin:
Thank you for your review. There are no negative scores - it is just that free extensions get a 0/100 for the price so all free extensions get dinged.
Fixing this defect is on our checklist - but we have other Google Tag Manager fun project coming first.
All the Best - Jay

I used this to: I use the plugin to add Google Tag Manager
Due to an issue with my template, I had an issue with the plugin. But Jay Murphy and his team made it work for me. Fantastic.
Ease of use
They made it really easy to use. A tutorial on how the google tag manager works was provided, Pretty cool.
120 out of 100.
I used this to: Tracking downloads of documents and video views for a non-profit site. We provide a resource database of health, human services and support, accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week online and through our multi-lingual hotline, connecting people to programs and disaster services.
Had some issues at the begining but working with the Devs soon resolved this. Like the fact they are willing to listen and adapt the plugin
Ease of use
Could not be simpler. Great options and this plugin loads the dataLayer just after < head> and tag snippet just after < body>.
Great. Fixed all my issues and added a couple of enhancements on my request. Doesn't get any better than that.
Didn't need any. But click the Documentation to the right and fill your boots.
I used this to: Production sites running Google Tag Manager for Event tracking
