If you’re like most people, the idea of adding code to your website is an uncomfortable idea at the best of times, and borderline terrifying at worst. With lines of JavaScript and HTML code inspiring fear in website owners worldwide, the task of remaining compliant with international data privacy laws is a fraught process for many.

We get it. Code isn’t as pretty as poetry or as easy to grasp as a comic—which is why CookieHub is such an effective answer to cookie consent implementation and compliance, especially when it comes to CMS (Content Management Systems).

Remaining compliant the easy way

From WordPress and Wix to Webflow and Shopify, your CMS website visitors require extensive control over what data you can collect and share about them. Whether it’s their geolocation data or user preferences, your visitors need to be able to quickly and easily select what types of data collection they consent to. 

As one of the leading cookie consent platforms on the market, CookieHub provides you with a simple way to incorporate cookie consent code into your site, whether by manually inserting personalized code into your website head or by using Google Tag Manager. 

To give you some idea of how easy CookieHub is to implement, we’re going to take a look at each implementation method and put to bed any code-induced fears you might have.  

The Google Tag Manager route

First of all, what is Google Tag Manager? With ‘tags’ referring to small sections of code or tracking pixels used for any number of purposes, they allow website owners to gain all kinds of information—from where visitors are coming from to what particular pages they like visiting. 

With the importance that tags play in the success of a website, Google Tag Manager allows website owners to control and implement tags without having to write or change any code. The main upside here, of course, is that pretty much anyone—even those who are code-phobic—can manage their tags easily without the need to get a developer involved.

Sounds good—and with CookieHub’s prebuilt Google Tag Manager template, it gets even easier. With our template containing built-in Google Consent Mode support, it removes a whole host of headaches from the process. 

Sidestepping the nuts & bolts

At its heart, Google Tag Manager (GTM) is built around 3 sections—tags, triggers, and variables. As mentioned before, tags are snippets of code or tracking pixels that perform various functions, including running data privacy scripts. However, as crucial as these tags may be, it’s equally important that they know when to trigger and have any additional ‘variable’ information needed to operate successfully.  

While setting up a website’s tags, triggers, and variables can be a fairly involved process, CookieHub lets you bypass having to create them from scratch. By simply logging onto the CookieHub dashboard and selecting your domain, our easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide will have even the most code-phobic website owner deploying a fully operational and compliant website in no time at all. 

The manual route

If you’re a little more comfortable with code—and by that we mean, you’re happy to copy and paste it—then our manual route to compliance implementation may be for you. 

The manual route is perhaps a faster way of implementing the code and means you won’t have the weight of Google Tag Manager running in the background (although, to be fair, so long as you’re not running your site on an ancient machine, you won’t really notice a significant performance drop by using GTM).   

As the word ‘manual’ suggests, you insert our cookie compliance script directly into your site yourself. With our custom production code available on the CookieHub dashboard, you simply need to copy and paste it into the head of your website.

Although this may sound a little more technical, it is in fact just as easy to achieve as using Google Tag Manager. Once you’ve logged onto the CookieHub dashboard, all you need to do is select your domain, then click the implementation tab. You’ll be given the option to ‘Manually Insert The Code’, after which you’ll receive the HTML/JavaScript code that you just paste into your website’s source.

Although words like ‘source’ and ‘JavaScript’ may still be off-putting to some, CookieHub has an easy, fully-illustrated guide to help you complete the task effortlessly. Once you’ve implemented the CookieHub code, you’re good to go, with our cookie consent dialog box granting your website visitors the ability to allow or deny the cookies of their choice. 

It really doesn’t get any simpler than that.

When it comes to data protection, CookieHub is arguably the simplest and most cost-effective way for businesses and website owners to remain GDPR compliant. With our cookie consent code easy to implement, it’s also remarkably affordable. With cookie consent packages starting from €0 per month, it doesn’t get any simpler than CookieHub, nor any cheaper.
