ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
(document.getElementsByTagName('head') || document.getElementsByTagName('body')).appendChild(ga);
I don't know html, so I don't know if this is what I'm supposed to find when checking the source code. I can see it says google-analytics, but why isn't it the newer version with a blue hyperlink? (I expected it to be since I only signed up like 6 weeks ago) I didn't even realize I'd set up the google analytics, I thought I'd backed out - thinking it cost money when it was supposed to be free. (I've since heard, again, that its free so I don't have a problem with that part)
This is what it says it's supposed to look like:
var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-xxxxxx-x");
Why are you messing around with the source code? If you link your account in the affiliate section, adsense is automatically displayed on your hubs and profile 60% of the time to make you money and 40% for HP.
At the google analytics page, it says to check the source code for which version you have for some reason or another, can't remember now what I was checking it for. And, I see, the blue hyperlink didn't show up in my post either...Oh! I remember, I wanted to verify I had google analytics set up. Cuz I thought I didn't. Guess I should assume it is? I was tired last night, and not understanding anything!!
Oops sorry was thinking of adsense. But as long as it says "set" on your affiliates page you're good to go. Just remember, you need to put "www.hubpages.com" as your web siite - HP will automatically insert YOUR tracking code in pages that you have ONLY. It can take up to 24 hours to start showing results.
Just follow HubPages' instructions for setting up your account and paste your ID into your affiliates page.
You can't paste any other code in anywhere and you can't check any other code anywhere.

My affiliate code is preceded by a "UA". Does that mean it was automatically upgraded? Do I need to do anything else before the Aug 20 deadline. This whole process is very confusing.
