For those of you that want to dig deeper into the traffic trends on your hubs, we've added a new feature allows you to track your pages on HubPages using Google Analytics. Simply sign up for an analytics account and then enter the UA- code they assign you on your HubPages Affiliate Settings page.
These are the settings I recommend that you use when you sign up. You can use a different time zone if you like, but the data we report at HubPages is based on Pacific Time.
Website's URL: hubpages.com/profile/pauldeeds
(use the URL to your profile, not mine!)
Account Name: HubPages
Time zone country or territory: United States
Time zone: (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time
Be warned that the page view and referer data from analytics is never going to match up precisely with what we report. The method they use to collect data is different, so you should expect small discrepancies.
Usually the stats are delayed an hour or two with Google Analytics, but I've noticed some bigger delays in the new beta interface (even though the data was appearing properly in the classic interface). I'm sure Google will work out the kinks soon ...
i signed up today on the site it says it can take up to 24 hours before your stats come through and it updates every 24hours after that.....jimmy
I have pasted my code into place. Can you please tell me how do I check the stats from analytics(or can I access the data from hubpages itself?) later on?
In 1-2 days you should start seeing data available for you pages, just logon with your google account here:
The data should start accumulating from the time you set the code at HubPages -- you won't get any "back data".
Great. Thanks Paul. I hope I can use this data for improving my hubs in future.
Hi night crawler, i had my stats a day after i signed up.....jimmy

I saw where this issue has been addressed in the past and supposedly corrected. But for many weeks now, especially toward the end of the week and weekends, my HubPages stats will not update for hours and sometimes even days at a time. An example would be "Includes data from 17 hours ago and...

It would be very useful to those of us who work hard to rank well for keywords to be able to see exactly which keywords are working on a daily, weekly, monthly and overall basis.A simple listing of keywords and the number of hits for each keyword phrase would be awesome! I can even supply some...

Is there a way within Hub Pages to see which articles are only receiving Hub traffic? I try to beef up the low performing Hubs but it would help to know which Hubs have no outside traffic. Or is the score of the Hub sufficient to monitor the lack of Google traffic?

Ever since the switch to subdomains, I have seen specific subdomain names listed on the traffic stats for individual Hubs; and on the Traffic Sources Page, the numbers for HubPages have seemed to decline (understandably). Recently, I have seen higher numbers for HubPages.com, and I don't...

I love to see what people were looking for when they found my hubs, it helps me choosing new titles and see which questions I left unanswered.I was hoping to see keywords under Traffic Sources, but I have to click on each hub and then stats, and then keywords.... quite a long process to check them...
