currently, i am implementing different codes for Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and Google Adwords.
If I use Google Tag manager code on my website then I don't have to paste all different codes on the website?

For my websites, I have Google Tag Manager's code & Google Analytics code both pasted on the website.

From my understanding, I don't think Google Tag Manager's code replaces the code for the other Google tools. I'm not exactly sure if this is your question. But I don't think Google Tag Manager's code replaces the other Google tools codes. I think Google Tag Manager works in addition to the other Google analytics tools.

Google Tag Manager's purpose is to help create tags and triggers for tracking.

Google Tag Manager doesn't manage the other analytics tools.

As far as I know, you need the Google Analytics code pasted on your website in addition to the Google Tag Manager code.

Forgive me if I misunderstood your question.

@praharsh2012 Looks like you've created and connected quite a few Google analytics properties here. These are probably redundant. You only need one UA property and one GA4 property. You have 3 UA properties, which they are probably redundant.

I don't think Simplilearn goes into detail further on Google Tag Manager.

I took a short Google Tag Manager Fundamentals course from Google. Though, I have to admit it is still confusing to me. (https://analytics.google.com/analytics/academy/course/5)

This blog I found is all about Google Tag Manager. I think there's a lot to learn here. (https://www.analyticsmania.com/)

How do you have "containers" on your website if you haven't added them yourself by copy/pasting the code... ?

I heard that. I'm puzzled why it would show multiple container if you didn't add the code to your website. Maybe Google Tag Manager does add them automatically? I didn't think that it did. And I still doubt that that is the reason. But I don't know!
