Some of my hubs are getting a fair bit of traffic from Google. (And some are not). Is there any way to see what search terms brought my Google traffic?
Of what I`ve heard now you can also track adsense earnings in Google Analytics.
That one is nice but what I would really like to know is if you can have acess to exactly which adds were cliked by your viewers.
Well, I assume you have checked your analytics account. I also assume you have checked your google adsense account.
Do you see any way of doing that?
Ah, yes . . . for my blogs I entered the tracking code into the HTML so I mistakenly figured you couldn't track with Google Analytics.
Thanks, Mark, for pointing me in the right direction and for Shailini for writing the great hub on how to set this up:

@Anime - That`s what you can easily do in your adsense account, not really sure if it`s possible on Google Analytics. Haven`t even tried to track my Adsense Earnings there.
Spend some time with your Google Analytics reports. They'll teach you a great deal about what's going on with your site.
Key places to look:
Dashboard: Showing you overall trends
Traffic Sources: Which engines are most important for you. Key - look for social bookmarking sites on the list. If you're getting Stumbleupon, Digg, Del.icio.us, etc. your pages are generating traffic because people actually LIKE your work and recommend it to others!
Traffic Sources -> Keywords: Not really actionable, but interesting, telling you how many keywords have sent traffic to your hubs. Actually can be quite interesting to see how many keywords deep you have, reflecting the power of Hubpages. (Actually, it is actionable, if you drive links to your pages you can influence these.)
Content -> Top Content: Shows which of your pages are being seen most frequently
Have fun - it's addicting to watch your line go up and down!
Just bear in mind that the keyword listed is the one that brought them to the HubPages domain - they may have then browsed around a bit before hitting one of your pages.
I have had some very weird keywords show up in my analytics reports - gemma atkinson? how many hairs does the average human scalp contain? vampire girls hot? - because of this phenomenon ...

Generally it seems to be agreed that it's important to get traffic straight from the Google search engine. What I'm wondering is if it is equally as valuable to get traffic from Google UK or Google Canada, etc. Does it...

I'm finally seeing earnings truly flow in, beginning in sometime of last month. So far this month I've broken $20; in addition to my earnings from August, it'll land me VERY close to a payout. The weekends always hit me...
