Duplicate Tags Report
The Duplicate Tags Report shows if there are any tags firing on the same page that are exactly the same. Duplicate tags inflate the counts in their respective reports, such as page views. There is no good use case for having duplicates of analytics tags on any page because it is sending redundant data. This report is different from the Multiple Tags report because multiple tags pass data that is not exactly the same.
Non-analytics tags might legitimately have duplicates. A social tag for example might appropriately appear more than once on a page and pass the exact same data.
The numbered circles on the graph represent accounts and show the number of duplicate server calls for that tag by account.
Clicking a tag expands the graph to reveal all the accounts or report suites that contain the duplicate data. In the report the requests number is bolded if there were duplicate requests.
