How to install widgets 
via Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a tag management system that makes adding HTML/JavaScript snippets to your website easier. We have created a dedicated GTM tag that will help you start using Getsitecontrol on your site without editing code.

This tag will link your site to Getsitecontrol and allow you to create and edit widgets in the Getsitecontrol dashboard with the results being applied in real time. The tag needs to be added only once.

Here’s how to install Getsitecontrol on a website via Google Tag Manager:

1. Add a new tag

Open Google Tag Manager, click to add a New Tag.
