Note to self read ALL the directions first. While signing up for google analytics where it asks for webpage profile I copied and pasted the link to my profile on hubpages. I think I was supposed to just put in hubpages.com. Is there anyway that I can fix my boo???
Sorry, I don't have an answer for you but will bump the thread for ya.
On google analytics I don't believe it really matters what you sign up with. Google analytics will only track where ever you put the unique code. Hubpages will only insert that unique code (you put it in on the affiliate page) on pages that you own or write (profile and hubs).
You can set up seperate trackers and profiles for a range of websites. On my GA, I have a tracker for hubpages, one for my blog (with blog name) and one after I got a domain. I also have another one for a site.
You can make as many trackers as you want - each one generates a different code to be used with the page etc.
Just create a new Analytics profile for http://hubpages.com. Then you can delete the other one.
I was going to do the same thing (bump this), then saw that Rafini had done so. [Was about to post when I saw WryLit's answer. I'll send this anyway.]
I have only just signed up for GA myself, but I don't remember exactly how the box looked. Have you tried at all going back through the process - or checking in your account to see if there's any way to edit it?
Since the link you posted is your profile on HP, it may even be okay - I was just trying to reason it out, and I'm sure that the HP address would be contained in your profile address. But I'm the last person to know for certain about such things; I'm still very much a learner in the process.
When did you do your sign-up? Have you looked back to see if it went through? It took mine several hours before the icon (on the GA page) showed that my HP account had been found.
Finally, have you looked through any of the other forums about Google Analytics? There have been several recent ones that gave some good tips for those of us who are new.
I did look through the forums. I think that I may be okay. WryLilt has some good advice. Next time I do something like this it will be earlier in the day and no glass of wine with dinner!!! I did try going back through the process and when it wouldn't let me that's when I sought HELP! I will look at it through fresh eyes tomorrow. Thank YOU!
