A Reddit user asked whether an HTML code placement can affect SEO, Mueller responds, and shares his advice in a Reddit thread:
The Google Tag Manager box placement is different in every situation according to Meuller. On the Google support page, it says, “Copy and paste the code snippets into your website as instructed in the Install Tag Manager box. Place the <script> code snippet in the <head> of your web page’s HTML output, preferably as close to the opening <head> tag as possible, but below any dataLayer declarations.” Mueller recently suggested that “Every situation is different. I’d look at what you do with GTM, test it in a browser & with the testing tools.”
