Google Analytics sign-up

    I seem to be unable to sign up to that feature. I've followed the instructions as explained here: http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/sett … analytics/

    But, when I fill in http://, then hubpages.com/profile/Vala20%Faye, it says it's an invalid input. I've tried a + instead 20%, but that too didn't work. The rest I filled in as suggested on the instructions, but it refuses to continue.

    Any idea what the problem could be?

    I recommend using "hubpages.com" (without the quotation marks, no http://). Oftentimes, that solves the problem regardless of what the Learning Center says.

    I actually did that, as they themselves in a seperate field provide the 'http://' part already, but thank you for the suggestion smile

      I don't understand what you mean by saying that you already did that.

      You have apparently used your profile URL. What I am suggesting, and what has worked for myself and many others, is to use "hubpages.com" instead. No more, no less.

      I assume that you will configure Analytics in your HubPages control panel, affiliate settings, by inserting your Analytics affiliate ID there.

      If you just use hubpages.com for Analytics as WE suggested, it will only track those pages that have your Analytics ID on them. To make sure that works properly, all you need to do is enter your Analytics ID number in the My Accounts > Earnings > Affiliate Settings section of HP.
