Validating

When you complete a save and publish of your account, new code is generated and the files on the CDN are updated. This process is normally instant, but it can take up to a few minutes. The primary tool used for verifying the status of the Universal tag (utag.js) on your site is Web Companion.

Learn more about using Web Companion.

Version Number / Timestamp

The version number, or timestamp of the current revision, is the best way to verify that your changes are live on the site. Match the timestamp from Web Companion to the date and time of your last publish to verify that your changes are live.
