Is there an easy way in Google Analytics (or elsewhere) to determine what percentage of my dollar earnings is attributable to a single keyword?
Yes - but you need to have made sure that your adsense account and analytics accounts are linked together. Then you can see every penny by page/keyword etc within your analytics account.

thanks Mr Mark, hi Ben Zoltak, morning all
thats kinda cool to know, I have mine all screwed up right now , cant really tell what goes where , but the clicks are showing up. Maybe if I spend a little less time hubbin and chattin I could get the reading done as to how all of that works and get it fixed up
I still haven't figured out how to work analytics and it's frustrating every time I try. It has something to do with channels right? Or is that mixed up? I don't get it.
I'm still not to the the point where I can associate keywords with revenue. My Google Analytics is connected to my Adsense account and was so before I asked this question.
I looked under keywords and could find the number of times that a particular keyword was involved in bringing someone to a sepcific hub.
It then shows me:
3. Avg. time on site
4. % New visits
5. Bounce rate
This does not translate to me into dollars and cents. If I want to know what a keyword earned me, how do I find out?
I just answered my own question. Apparently there's a tab that says "Adsense Revenue". If you press it, all becomes clear!
That works great for Adsense, but there is no way to track Amazon or Ebay earnings here. It should be possible to track the number of outbound clicks and which product listings are being clicked on in Analytics (you can do it in Wordpress or Squidoo) but that kind of tracking is not offered on Hubpages yet.
If you'd like to see that, go comment on this thread
I know this is probably a dumb question that has been answered on HubPages 1000 times in a 1000 different ways, but....
Everybody here has Adsense right?
Adwords has features that everybody can use right?
But only people who have a budget of any substantial amount sign up to buy ads with Adwords correct?
From my research, it sounds like some people with really successful personally-owned blogs, do buy some Adwords ads then try to turn that around into more traffic and therefore more Adsense revenue, right?
Or am I wrong?
Ben, I don't think it can work that way. People who buy the ads are the distributors or retailers of the products. They can't be making money off clicks, because that would make the revenue stream circular...
AYA, good to see you again!
Susanna, thanks for the input!
These are both answers I figured I'd get. Mostly though, I side with Aya. I could see how someone with a lot of money could risk playing back and fourth with some budget revenue and "services" from their websites being sold, and gaining from views on their clicks. But mostly, I have trouble visualizing what that would look like, and what's more, I can't see that as even close to remotely close, to an honest living!
the term "adsense arbitrage" will explain the history and use of such a model for revenue, i can attest that it works very well...you just have to really have your keyword research and stats analysis down before putting any money into adwords ..whether for a variation of arbitrage (as its not officially allowed..but it kinda is, google does it themselves ) or just for the normal intended use..adwords can blow through money Quick!
I finally figured out URL tags! All this time promoting and not getting anything for it! Well, my $$$ hasn't skyrocketed or anything, but at least now I'm slowly setting it up.
