    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.

      When I first signed up with HP, I used my profile page as the URL for Analytics. But it only tracked visits to my profile page. I switched to and it now tracks all of my hubs.

    Oh, OK, thanks! That makes things easier... I was thinking I'd have to reenter information each time I wrote a hub!
