I just sign up for Google Analytics and they are asking what is you webpage - i put my profile page link - it was accepted...
just wondering what others have done ??
will they be able to track all my hubpages by giving them only the profile page ?
I thought for Google Analytics to work, you had to insert their tracking code before the /body tag at the end of each page you want to track. I've had to do that on all the pages of my own domain. I'm not sure how you could do that on a hub, as you can't post script into the capsules.
The profile link should be fine. We automatically put the tracking code into all of your hubs, and other pages here at HubPages. All you have to do is enter a new UA- code on your my affliate page.
Paul - sorry for giving wrong info. But could you explain that a little further please? I'm a bit confused about Google Analytics - If I give them my Profile page, I guess they will assign a UA code. What happens next?
MM del R - not hijacking your query, but I think we're asking about the same thing!
Just enter the UA- code into your HubPages affiliate settings and in a couple of days you should start to see all kinds of interesting data about your traffic at Hubpages using the Google Analytics reporting interface.
Got it - thanks! (I'd missed the fact that Analytics has a separate entry box from Adsense)
Can I do the same thing with Adsense - if I link to my profile page will all earnings be aggregated from all my hubs?

I have been monitoring my real time traffic for the past week. I have noticed that the active page is sometimes listed as "/". Does anyone know what that means? The last time it happened I checked and it was listed as a social visitor, and I think the source is from Hubpages.

I've joined Google Analytics, copied my code, but I don't understand WHERE to "paste it onto every page that you want to track immediately before the tag"Is this on the 'my account' page? On each and every hub I've written somewhere?Please let me know. Thanks Hubbers!!

I'd like to start using Analytics for my hubs, however I'm a bit confused about what to put down when it asks for your URL. Am I supposed to put in the URL of every hub I want tracked or do I put in one main URL, like the one that brings up my profile?For those of you who use Analytics, how helpful...

It would be very useful to those of us who work hard to rank well for keywords to be able to see exactly which keywords are working on a daily, weekly, monthly and overall basis.A simple listing of keywords and the number of hits for each keyword phrase would be awesome! I can even supply some...
