    This sounds pretty baffling! The page_view event should indeed be fired as the page starts to load but events such as click_links and scroll should theoretically occur after. It could be a weird quirk with your setup or the way the scripts are loading. Maybe they are firing immediately because they don’t have anything explicitly holding them back until the page finishes loading.

    It seems like you’re trying to understand why multiple events on your website appear to be firing all at once when a user lands on the page. According to Google, the ‘page_view’ event should be the first to trigger as a page starts loading. However, in your case, events like ‘click_links’ and ‘scroll’ are also firing at the same time. This could be confusing as logically, these actions (‘click_links’, ‘scroll’, etc.) can only occur once a user is able to interact with the page, i.e., after it has loaded. There could be various reasons behind this behavior, such as page code setup, the way events are tracked, or maybe the tool you’re using to monitor these events. You may need to tweak around with your website’s code or the settings of your event tracking tool to ensure that these events are recorded as they are supposed to.
