CEO Futura Immagine
Matteo is my reference point not only for using Google Tag Manager but also for PPC campaigns in Google Ads. His “rational” approach to PPC is perfect for people like me who have a more creative mind and focus on the message. His professional development over recent years has been enormous.
This GTM book is not just “a” book, but THE book. Matteo is able to take an incredibly super boring and confusing subject, like pixel tracking of a website (we can say it!) and make it fun and easy. After reading Matteo’s book, Google Tag Manager becomes child’s play. The concepts are laid out so simply that even if you have never managed tags or web analysis in your life, you will be able to put your newfound knowledge into practice and start to track seriously.
"Thank you, Matteo, for writing this!- Julius Fedorovicius, Founder of Analytics Mania
What are you waiting for? Grab it, read it, and learn it".
"Wait a minute. What is this Google Tag Manager thing and why should I use it?"
Google Tag Manager (GTM) is free software, created by Google, that integrates with Google Analytics and greatly expands its potential.
Little known fact: Google Tag Manager is an indispensable tool not only for web analysts but also for anyone working with the web: marketers, freelancers, account managers, developers, SEO/SEM professionals, social media specialists... you name it.
The reason being is that the features of GTM (which Matteo thoroughly addresses in the book) are numerous and still little known to the majority of web professionals.
An example? With Google Tag Manager you can:
- correctly install and manage on your website all the tags needed for web analytics and web marketing tools to function, consequently, avoiding conflicts between different software and drastically reducing implementation and maintenance times;
- peek on the behaviors of the users of your site, almost like as if they are participating in your own personal "Big Brother" TV show, in full compliance with the laws in force (GDPR, privacy regulations, etc.);
- eliminate once and for all the frustrations that arise when having to deal with the (obligatory) assistance of other agencies and consultants. With GTM, you’re provided with a digital VIP pass that allows you to access and manipulate the front-end of your site, in complete autonomy, without having to dictate any required changes to the website developers.
Founder ADworld Experience
Matteo is credited with being among the first in Italy to understand the potential of Google Tag Manager. If you want to understand how GTM works, and you are interested in learning more about its advanced features, then Matteo’s guides and courses are, in my opinion, essential reading.

CEO, SEO Cube and SEO Zoom
(...) Matteo’s book is a true bible for learning GTM thoroughly and having complete control over any activity performed by the user on our websites. Everything is explained with extreme clarity and simplicity, with a unique approach that only those who have the complete knowledge of the tool are able to provide. This is a highly recommended book for anyone who wants to maximize the performance of their website.
