I have had one click with ad-sense and am not sure which page generated that click. I would like to figure out which one it was so that I can have a look at it and see if there are ways I can improve it as it must be able to generate more clicks. If its got even one click it seems worth thinking about adding more content and having a look at the tags to see if there are more and better ones to use.
Well you can't go back to find out which hub generated the click, but for future, set up URL channels in your Adsense account. (when logged into Adsense, go to "Adsense Setup", click channels, and then URL channels and drop in the URLs of your hubs). From then on, they will track the clicks for you by hub.
Bard of Ely will tell you that adult hubs are the gems. Note I said adult, not porn. Yes, there is a difference.
In the grand scheme of things, one click isn't worth worrying about.
Make each hub the best they can be, improve it if some new information comes to light or you've thought of something you may have missed. Or just write a new article and publish it elsewhere and put a link back to your original hub article.
Sweating over what you've already made won't have the same impact as writing something new.
Writing a new article on the same subject matter to link back here is a great idea! Thanks for that one!
I was just thinking of using that one click to have a place to start with improving the content of the pages I already have and to get an idea of what subject matter gets clicks as opposed to fan mail and non-commercial popularity.
Keep in mind that some topics will get more clicks than others, it depends on traffic. And where that traffic is coming from.
You might cover a subject that gets 100 people a week, and a 5% click thru rate, and another that gets 100's of ad clicks per per week. Which is the most successful?
It might be the former. Because far fewer people are searching for that information, therefore it's a very narrow niche. You could be dominating that topic as far as being the best resource for information. And the clicks might be worth dollars each rather than just a couple of cents.
It's only when you've got a lot of traffic that you can start to see trends. Very little traffic and few clicks aren't going to reveal much. The click may have been accidental. It could be that the ad was far more interesting than the content of your article. It could be because your article is excellent and doesn't need improvement. There's a lot of guesswork involved trying to figure out peoples motives.
The only thing you can do is know about the topic you're covering, do a little keyword research, write an excellent article, publish and if you've done it right, Search Engines will index you and give you visitors if you deserve it. If you want to help it along a bit publishing an article somewhere else can give you a backlink (for the purposes of Search Engine Optimization) and/or traffic from the other site. Most of the time though I don't promote my hubs. Some do, some will pick and choose their favourite ones to submit to social bookmarking sites.
Then repeat the process.
Thanks for the reply, This little bit here got me laughing, that could be a strategy for getting clicks, just write the worst stuff so the ads are more interesting lol, but can i be boring...... nope don't think so, oh well am going to have to work at it then!
I got my second adsense click so thats £0.22 earned now! Yay! and one click on amazon tho no sale so no cash there just yet but progress is progress . Seems if I keep adding new pages these numbers should grow beyond reporting it here!
Kirsten? you suggested a good idea! I've never even interested from what hubs I receive clicks, but after reading messages here I want to know, it's quite interesting and important as well. Thanks for a good idea!

Hi,I have noticed that my analytics if showing good traffic to my hubs, but my adsense is not showing any clicks to my hubs ever since I started. I do not understand how I can have a decent amount of traffic and yet no clicks. Could I have adsense set up wrong with hubpages? ...

I have diligently watch my adsense and analytics charts and graphs for over a month now, trying to get a clue that I was doing something right. Today I actually found I made money in June - my first real month of effort. A whole $.02! I hadn't realized I could make money...

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on Hubpages, you will not, I repeat, you will NOT get credit for clicks on your ads from...
