My husband and I share a Google account. My traffic has been very slow for months, but this shows it as non-existent...I can't figure out what this means, and what I need to do to change it. It shows my visits as 0 (-100%).
Can someone help me? The more I try to understand this information, the more confused I get...ugh.
I tried to enlarge the pic, but for some reason, it wouldn't take. I also tried to do a screen print first, but couldn't figure out how to upload it here, so I had to use my camera, sorry...
Have you tried re-entering your GA tracking code in your settings - I've never had to do this but I've seen on Google forums where GA tracking goes missing or out of synch with a website (or something, I'm not sure what) and the advice from Google was to re-do the tracking code. It seemed to fix the problem in some cases, so even if everything seems to be in the right place it might be worth trying.
Thank you Redberry Sky--I will see if I can figure out how to do this. I confess to not being very savvy when it comes to this type of thing. At least it's something I can try, though--thanks again SO very much!
Hope it helps, TamCor (I think you enter your GA pub-ID in the 'Earnings' > 'Reporting Settings' of your HubPages 'My Account' but it's been 2 months since I did it so I can't remember - mind like a sieve! - the proper instructions will probs be in the Learning Centre somewhere) I think it can take 3 days to start reporting again, too, so you might not get instant results.
Analytics is showing your HP traffic -- it's just all rolled up with your hubby's. You can go into your Analytics dashboard and look at views to each page individually, but that's it.
You entered the URL of http://hubpages.com/profile/TamCor into Analytics, which should only show views to your profile page, assuming you have entered your Analytics ID correctly into HP.
Your hubby has correctly entered http://hubpages.com, which will track views to ANY AND ALL pages on HP tagged with your Analytics ID, which is your account and your hubby's account.
If you use the same Analytics ID for two different HP accounts, there's no way for Analytics to separate the views. Think of it this way...
You and your hubby have 10 identical white coffee mugs tagged with the exact same logo -- five are yours and five are his. You put them out in a row and ask me to identify which mugs belong to you and which belong to your hubby. How the heck am I supposed to do that unless you use a different logo on your mugs than your hubby does!?!
Thank you lrohner...it does make sense. If that's the case, then that's fine if it's all in Tom's name.
So does what you mentioned about my URL mean that I should change it? Or won't it make a difference?
I admit that I'm lost here. I am still trying to figure out HOW to do it, if that's the case.
We make next to nothing with Adsense--pennies per month, is all. I keep thinking maybe we've done something wrong, but just don't know how to go about finding out. I know about all the Panda updates, so that may be why, but I don't know for sure...
Thanks again--I wish there were classes I could take to understand this stuff, lol...or someone could come here, to my home, and sit down and show me step by step, what to do...
Mine is still set this way, and it shows stats/activity to my entire sub-domain. When I first joined, that was my site URL. I was told we didn't need to change it after sub-domains.
