    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.

        Then go to your account, affiliate settings and set up analytics.

          Thanks for that, I guess I would have figured it out some day but probably not for quite a while so time saved big_smile.

    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.

    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!
