The Building Blocks
Google Tag Manager consists of 3 major building blocks.
• Tags
• Triggers
• Variables

Tags are actually small snippets of code. Tags are used to track or monitor patterns of user behavior. These data and information collected are sent to the relevant server.
Triggers are the conditions or clauses where the codes are being fired, or specifically triggered. We can set specific events, attributes, conditions and based on these events triggers are fired.
Variables are the value that has to be given to the triggers. For example, if we set up an event and it requires some quantitative values, these values are the variables. Similar to the generic variable, where it is a substitute to values; these are of two types: Build in and user defined.
