Next Script for Google Analytics

Why This Error Occurred

An inline script was used for Google analytics which might impact your webpage's performance.

Possible Ways to Fix It

Using gtag.js

If you are using the gtag.js script to add analytics, use the next/script component with the right loading strategy to defer loading of the script until necessary.

import Script from 'next/script'

const Home = () => {
  return (
    <div class="container">
      <!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
      <Script
        src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=GA_MEASUREMENT_ID"
        strategy="afterInteractive"
      />
      <Script id="google-analytics" strategy="afterInteractive">
        {`
          window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
          function gtag(){window.dataLayer.push(arguments);}
          gtag('js', new Date());

          gtag('config', 'GA_MEASUREMENT_ID');
        `}
      </Script>
    </div>
  )
}

export default Home

Using analytics.js

If you are using the analytics.js script to add analytics:

import Script from 'next/script'

const Home = () => {
  return (
    <div class="container">
      <Script id="google-analytics" strategy="afterInteractive">
        {`
          (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
          (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
          m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
          })(window,document,'script','https://www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');

          ga('create', 'UA-XXXXX-Y', 'auto');
          ga('send', 'pageview');
        `}
      </Script>
    </div>
  )
}

export default Home

If you are using the alternative async variant:

import Script from 'next/script'

const Home = () => {
  return (
    <div class="container">
      <Script id="google-analytics" strategy="afterInteractive">
        {`
          window.ga=window.ga||function(){(ga.q=ga.q||[]).push(arguments)};ga.l=+new Date;
          ga('create', 'GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_ID', 'auto');
          ga('send', 'pageview');
        `}
      </Script>
      <Script
        src="https://www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js"
        strategy="afterInteractive"
      />
    </div>
  )
}

export default Home
