Can I monitor traffic with Google Analytics?
This is the FAQ Answer:
If you want to dig deeper into the traffic trends on your Hubs, you can 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.
Here's my question:
I already have Google Analytics - my acct # is UA-*******-1 for one website, -2 for the next, etc.
In the Affiliates Code section - should I have an -XX number at the end of my UA Number that's specifically for HubPages - using one unique dash for each Hub?
There will most likely only be one number at the end of your code, and you do not need two.
Just go ahead and set up another tracker with Analytics, and enter it into the right spot on hubpages. It should work fine.
I've got a ton of other websites I track analytics on, not sure I want to muddy up my daily scans just so I can see the same number on my Hubpages inside Google Analytics that I can see in the Stats.
Analytics will show you different things than your stats will. For example, today I learned that a hub with lots of traffic, but no income is actually responsible for drawing in quite a bit of income, for other hubs.
One analytic tracker is all you need for hub pages. You do not need a new one for each hub.
Hope I am answering your questions.

Some of my hubs are getting a fair bit of traffic from Google. (And some are not). Is there any way to see what search terms brought my Google traffic?Thanks.
