The solution to GTM.JS 404 Error

The solution is one of GTM itself. What is actually happening is that your browser is requesting data from GTM. However, the container hasn’t been published yet. This means into no data that is being returned. There is one simple solution to this: Publish the GTM container once you create it.

How do you do this?

Always follow these steps when you plan tracking a new website for GTM:

  • Create new container
  • Publish it!
  • Put the GTM embed code in your website code
  • Open the JavaScript Console when browsing on your website
  • No gtm.js 404 error? Then there’s no error and you’re good to go.

Master tip: Always publish your containers, even when they’re empty. By doing this developers won’t receive a 404 error.
