      Yes - it applies to any "application" where you need to upload code to the root domain, or have access to the code for the individual page

      Once you publish a hub, you can use that url for Google Analytics. As long as you enter your ID number in affiliate settings, all of your Hubs will be tracked, not just the url you gave them.
