What is Tag Explorer?

"Tag Explorer" is a versatile Chrome extension designed to recognize and display marketing tags and beacons active on any webpage. It is an ideal tool for auditing websites and maintaining privacy by monitoring whether the analytic tags are functioning properly, checking for piggy-backing tags or third-party trackers, and scrutinizing the loading hierarchy of each tag. It is an essential aid if you desire to improve your site performance, validate your tag management system, or discover any unapproved tags that might be loading.

Tag Explorer is a tool that shows which marketing tags are running on the page you are currently viewing and what beacons are firing. Whether you want to make sure your analytics tags are firing, check for piggy-backing tags and third party trackers, or to see the hierarchy of how each tag is being loaded, Tag Explorer is the perfect extension for all of your site auditing and privacy needs.


  1. Ensure every tag is firing correctly on your webpage.
  2. Validate your tag management system is loading your tags properly.
  3. Learn what other "not approved" tags may be loading off other tags.
  4. Pinpoint where tags are firing from and how that may affect your site performance.
