Suggestion - Hubpages Adsense income stats at Analytics at Page Level

    I use Google Analytics to see the progress of my hubs. As you know, there is integration between Google Adsense and Google Analytics already and it is possible to see the most effective pages in terms of Adsense earnings. Hubpages currently lacks Adsense earning tracking at page level. All we need is to put a script provided by Google after the body tag to see which pages generate top Adsense income. Here is a sample.

    window.google_analytics_uacct = "UA-12062959-18";

    Hubpages already gets Analytics ID e.g UA-12062959-18 through settings. It would be great if you could include this on each page. So, we will easily know which pages require more marketing and backlinks from other websites for Adsense. Programmatically, it is very easy to implement and has benefits for all smile

    I think not many people are knowledgeable about the advanced techniques of Google Analytics & Adsense Integration. Anyway I paste the sample Google page about the subject.

    Maybe I'm missing something here, but you don't need to paste any code anywhere on HubPages to be able to track page earnings through Analytics. Once you integrate your Analytics with your AdSense, you can track earnings by hub. You can also add your individual hubs as URL channels in AdSense to track them.

      Hi Irohner, I know this already. What I say is completely another but very useful thing. I think you didn't use Analytics Adsense Integration feature yet.

      It is now possible to see Adsense earnings at Analytics even at page levels without using any URL channels (they are limited in numbers).

      For example, you can see the keywords which resulted in most Adsense earnings etc. You can pivot Adsense earnings with other Analytics parameters like referrals, country etc. Here how it works basically from official Analytics blog.

      Since hubpages developers already get our Analytics ID through settings, they need to just paste Google script to hubpages implementation globally. Very easy and extremely useful.. Hear me please Hubpages developerrrrsssss smile))))

    I think you are just making things more difficult for the average hubber.

    Simply using analytics gives you tons of information and stats that you could decipher all day long.

    Personally I like to stick to the KISS (keep it simple stupid) method.

    Maybe Im just not patient enough to dig deeper but I do well with the techniques I use.

    Not to mention there are only 24 hours in a day.

    Hi Dale, actually my suggestion makes the things simpler and more time-efficient for all of us smile)

    Imagine that you will use only Analytics tool to check your page statistics & Adsense earnings in a consolidated page together.

    Anyway, my suggestion is really good for hubbers who want to track Adsense earnings at keyword & page level. Who doesn't want to know the referring search engine keywords which bring the most revenue for them?!

    The best part is that hubbers individually will not need to play with their current settings. It is just at the hubpages developers side.

    Since we (the users) don't own the domain, and because it would be impractical for HubPages to give all users access to source files (esp in terms of security), I can tell you right now, muratos, HubPages is not going to take your suggestion.

    lrohner summed things up nicely.

    Thanks for the comments smile Well, I will try to explain last time for you and will not insist on going on the subject smile)

    1) Hubpages already takes our Analytics ID on Affiliate settings page. Such as: UA-12126739-1 (This is the only place hubbers provide information and involve)

    2) Hubpages already uses it now at the bottom of hubber pages in Analytics script as a template. (No user involvement here, completely on developer side)

    3) Hubpages should put the similar script for Adsense & Analytics integration at the beginning of the hubber page as a template. (No user involvement here again, completely on developer side)

    There is no need to give any access to any hubber anywhere. No security issues at all.

    If a Hubpages programmer sees my suggestion, normally they would understand clearly what I say. Whether they activate it or not surely is their choice because this would reveal the money making referral keywords to the website.

    The way around what you are describing is simply to make hubpages your primary domain in Analytics.  If you do that you don't need the header script you are suggesting.  I had to move things around in my Analytics account, but once you do that you can easily track which pages, keywords, traffic sources, etc. are netting you the bet Adsense.  You can still track your other domains, but they then need the header script.

      Really! thats great, Im off to investigate that. I had written off this option for my tracking.

      OP, This is a great suggestion, Misha brought this up almost a year ago, to no response.

      It really does  seem as if the capabilities are already existent in hubpages current systems. i know I could increase my earnings if I had these increased metrics..stuff like this would make more money for hubpages too

    johnr54 is totally right sunforged. It is true for primary Analytics profile smile

    If you add hubpages in default account in analytics there is no need for the extra script. It is true for actually any primary profiles.

    In my case, I needed the special Adsense Analytics script for header since I can not change the current structure already. If I change tracking code for my main profile site, my analytics history would be broken for it sad

    By the way, thanks for the support for better smile)

    I'm just going to hazard a guess that this is a little more complicated than it seems since we share Adsense impressions. 

    The Analytics can be associated with a page for all views but the header script might need to be included only on those pages that show your Adsense.  Probably still doable but it's now not just adding it to the same script that appends the Analytics code.
