Using AddThis with Google Tag Manager

The official line from Google is that sharing buttons like AddThis don’t work with Google Tag Manager because they’re associated with in-page structure. However, many AddThis features can be added to a page with Google Tag Manager.

NOTE: In order to get these examples to work properly you’ll have to replace YOUR-PROFILE-ID with your profile ID, which you can find by logging into your AddThis account and going to

Page-Level Tools

Our page-level tools – the Sidebar Share Buttons, related post tools (other than inline, targeting messages, and the Header Follow – will work with Google Tag manager easily. Just create a Custom HTML Tag manager with this code in it:

    <script src="//" type="text/javascript"></script>

Inline Tools

Our inline tools – like Inline Share Buttons or Related Posts Inline – require HTML on the page that cannot be added with Google Tag manager. This code will have to be added directly to the page.
