    Are the data events sent to Google Universal Analytics marked as non-interation?

    Yes. The RTP script sends data events to Google Analytics (both Classic and Universal) as non-interation, so it has no affect on bounce rate and pageview metrics.

    • Google Universal Analytics version:

         ga('send', 'event', 'RTP-Segments', 'segmentName', 'organizationName', null,   {'nonInteraction': 1}  )

    • Classic Google Analytics version:

         _gaq.push(['RTP-Segments', 'segmentName', 'organizationName', null, true]);

     

     

    What needs to be configured in Google Tag Manager to enable to GA integration

    Nothing. Everything is done automatically by the RTP tag and behind the scenes once the integration is set up correctly.
