    If anyone would be so kind as to help me set up my Google analytics link up to my hub pages profile I would appreciate it.

    I am having trouble getting it to except the URL I am putting in. I have tried a few different ways but I am obviously not doing it properly.  I have been trying it for nearly two weeks now and I think at this stage I â��Need helpâ��   :-(

    It keeps coming back at me with the message �invalid input� when I put my URL in the box and then put in �Hub Pages� in the �account name� box..

    I think it is that I am inputting my URL incorrect? I have read the instructions, and watched the video, but I am just not �getting� it?

    This is the part I am getting stuck with????

    Website's URL: http:// https://  (e.g. www.mywebsite.com)
    Account Name:

    my profile URL is

    http://hubpages.com/profile/Garlic+Angel

    I recommend trying simply "hubpages.com" (without the quote-marks, no "http" or "www"). That is what I and others are using, regardless of what the Learning Center says. You are not the first person to report problems.

      Thanks Website Examiner for the quick reply.
      sorry but do you mean put hubpaes.com in the url box ? where do I put my profile name or do I not ?
      Is the account name I am putting in correct "Hup Pages" in the second box?

      so sorry for all the questions  Garlic angel

    I am not sure about what boxes you are talking about. The Learning Center, I believe, says to use the profile URL. I have simply used hubpages.com. Either one should work. In either case, you should not include "http://" or "www."

    So that would be either

    hubpages.com/profile/Garlic+Angel

    Or

    hubpages.com

    In the affiliate settings section of the HubPages control panel, you do not put any URL, but your Google Analytics affiliate ID.

      Ok thank you I will try the hubpages.com  one now  on its own. I have tried your first sugestion. I have also tried it with and without the http and www  etc etc

      no I am putting it in the page that comes up  'sign in' not the affiliate page.

      I will try it now
