Datalayer guiding principles

  1. Single DataLayer (w3c digitalData) not multiple
  2. Only application writes to DataLayer
  3. Single Tag Manager (recommendation Launch)
  4. Object instead of Array


  • Keep it English
  • Start with lower case
  • Camel Case e.g. user.lastLoginDate
  • Abbreviation stay capital but use them as little as possible (nl=newsletter?)
  • If true/false node use “is” as prefix e.g. user.isRegistered


  • Use strings
  • true/false NO yes/no or 0,1 or t/f
  • DataLayer provides possible values
  • Keep it as short as possible but still meaningful (Character limit for URL + 100 per variable)
  • No abbreviation e.g. m/f => male/female
  • Date fields => 4 nodes, date: yyyy-mm-dd. time: hh:mm:ss, timezone: +05:00
  • dateTime: yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss+05:00
  • Concatenation, use pipe |, use identifier if possible e.g. utm_source:123|utm_medium:345|utm_campaign:678
