    I know there must be a way to see which adds are getting clicked on but for the life of me I just can not see it. I am sure that it is probably right in front of me but I really need some help with this one.

      Do you mean which ads are getting clicked on within a specific Hub?  There's not much point in worrying, because you can't control where those ads appear - HubPages looks after that.

      The best you can do is make sure to split your text up over several text capsules, to give HP maximum flexibility in positioning your ads. And don't forget the top right hand corner is the best position for an ad so make sure you leave space for it.

      If you mean which Hubs are getting Adsense income - have you set up Channels in Adsense?   It's in your Adsense setup, click the Channels tab and then "URL channels".  Then add each Hub as a separate channel.

    I doubt there is any way to find this out. Reason being that this would be an invitation to click fraud for some people.

    I haven't set up channels where I have to link each hub separately, yet I can still see which hubs get clicks and for how much. How can I do this??

    Yes, you can add channels on your adsense account or you can also look at your google analytics account to see which hubs got clicks and such.

    I just have one generic tracker for analytics. So I should go through and add each Hub seperatly?

    Habee I am not sure what you are looking at. if you explain maybe I will not have to go back and redo all the work of adding each hub.

      I think you're confusing analytics and Adsense.

      You can set up channels in Adsense which will enable you to track the income for each Hub.  Not Analytics.

      It doesn't take that long.  Follow the instructions I gave you, then open your Statistics page and go down the list.  Right click on each Hub title, click "copy link location" then paste them, one on each line, into the box on the Adsense screen.

    The best you can do is setup a channel for each ad and then you can know which of the ad sections was clicked on. But, sometimes those spots get filled in with text ads in which case there can be five links in one ad spot. There is no way to tell which of those was clicked.

    The only real exception is if you suddenly get a click on a hub that pays way lower than you normally get, you can be pretty sure it was the link on the bottom since the highest paying links go at the top. Of course that all assumes that you see the same links when you look at the page that the person who clicked saw.

    If you do find one of those bottom priced ads, you should ban them so that they don't drag down your earnings. I wrote a hub about that here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Higher-AdSense- … thless-Ads  Just in case anyone wanted to check it out.

    There are several ways to find out which ads are being clicked on when you own a site but not on HP.

    The first is to buy and install script on your site that logs each event of a visitor. The second is purchasing software that takes a video recording of the visitors activity in real time as to their mouse cursor over your site.

    Now those scripts only work on your own self hosted blogs/websites. It cannot work on Hubpages simply because you cannot install such tracking script.

    Therefore, unless you have the software or script you cannot see which ads are getting clicked...unfortunately. It would be nice to know.

      I was just wondering how to tell if my goggle clicks are coming from one specific Hub or a combination of many.

    Like the people have mentioned above, Analytics is good

    Analytics can show you which pages are generating the money, check out this image as an example (This was for a post where I thought I might be getting the worlds lowest value clicks on my Google Chrome Hub!


    What you cannot see in this image is the rest of statistical data Google Analyrics gives you on earnings, but it is really useful when you are trying to figure out what is working, and what is failing!

    Just raelised how many people who are saying this can't be done, or suggest making an adsense channel for each Hub. You do NOT need to do this, just get your analytics set up right and all your information is there waiting for you!

      Oli, maybe you need to write a Hub on how to get your Analytics set up right?  (or how to use it, LOL).

      I guess a lot of us are still using Adsense and Analytics the old way, as we did when they weren't integrated.

    Heh - currently have another 2o+ hubs to write on my current project, along with blogs, bookmarks, articles etc. before I have any time for that!

    I have decided to try and corner a market which I don't really have a foothold in, gonna be tough but I think I can manage it!

      I'll just have to be patient then!

      I found what you were talking about on Analytics, but have obviously missed something fundamental because it tells me there's a big discrepancy between Analytics reporting on earnings and Adsense reporting.
