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 has it been?
Once you have signed up for analytics, simply go to the affiliate settings page (where you put in your adsense ID) and put your unique analytics number in there. Hubpages does the rest.
This is much easier than doing it on your own site where you have to place a tag in the html code .
Oh, I understand how to include Analytics on Hub Pages, but I should've clarified.... I'm confused about how to actually sign up for Analytics in the first place. Analytics asks for your URL and I don't know what to give them. I have 37 hubs right now, so that's 37 different URLs. Do I sign up for each one or do I give one main URL from Hub Pages... do I just skip that questions? THAT's the part that confuses me. Thanks.
You just enter one URL and the one to your HubPages profile will work fine. That URL is really just for display purposes, I don't think it affects the tracking at all.
Oh, OK, thanks! That makes things easier... I was thinking I'd have to reenter information each time I wrote a hub!
wow , I'm learning something new every day in the forums , I never knew you can track your hubs in Google analytics
yes I was exactly the same rumbling - just signed up and activated and its freeeeeeee!!!
I also use the hubpages.com and it tracks all my individual 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 went to the Google analytics set up page, with the hubpages learning centre guide on the other tab - but Google won't accept my website name. It keeps saying 'invalid entry' even though I have tried all these combinations:http// hubpages.com/profile/Marie+McKeownhttp// ...

I was just looking at my Analytics account and I was wondering what the difference was between Visits and Page Views?

When you have a hub that touches on several things, is it better to focus on fewer key tags- or use them all?Does having too many key tags hurt you as far as getting googled?I've just gone back in and deleted some of mine that didn't really seem as relevant now that I looked at them again.It's...

Hello. I have some questions regarding Google Analytics and Webmaster tools. Any help is greatly appreciated. When I checked my webmaster tools, I saw a lot of URL errors, a 404 crawl error because apparently "Googlebot couldn't crawl this URL because it points to a non-existent page"....
