where to add tracking code

    I signed up for Google Analytics quite a while ago (my account shows May 26) and so far I have no data.  Nothing.  Zip.  Only an estimated 79 cents from adsense.  So, I believe I had to have done something wrong when I signed up - I checked my profile settings for the tracking code and it says it has to be added to each page of my website.  Where and how do I do this?  Thanks! big_smile

      Do you have it turned on in your affiliate settings options?  Sounds like you do and should automatically be plugged into each hub you make, the earnings suggest all is working well... smile

      Adding code to individual pages does not apply to HubPages, only to regular websites. The ID only needs to be entered once in the affiliate settings panel.

        like the same place I entered my adsense and amazon codes?  I'll go check.


        Yup!  That was it.  Thanks Website Examiner!  big_smile

          That's correct. It should look something like this: UA-XXXXXXXX-X (substitute numbers for X's).

          Edit: Seems like you got it. You are welcome.

    so now, how long before it will actually show something besides 0's?

      As far as I can recall, it should take about 24 hours for the service to start collecting data. Certainly, within the next few days.

    Hey, Oli, would you please check the questions in the related forum topic "Google Analytics" (just a few lines lower on the first page list)?  I have a couple I need to have answered.  Thanks.

    Rafini, I saw your post in the other forum.  I guess that indicates that I should remove the single-quotation marks. I'll try that, and if it hasn't been detected by this time tomorrow, I'll try again.  Thanks for your checking and responding!

    Congrats, too!  big_smile
