    Yes you can use google analytic id in hubpages . In fact after you use that id , only then , google analytics starts generating reports. smile

      I've missed a step or something. I've signed up but my status is that 'tracking has not been added to website'. Do I need to go thru admin to get my GA ID?

        You need to enter your google analytics id on your affiliate settings page.  It is contained in the javascript tracking code that they give you to place on your website, and will look something like this (your numbers will of course be different):


        Once you've entered it correctly it may take a day or two to get your first reports.

          thanks lizzie, paul. I'm sure I signed up correctly, now I'm just waiting on the code but the message above is the one I get on the GA site. Give another 24 hrs maybe..?

    Once you add the GA code to your affiliate settings you can use url channels to track individual hub pages

    give it about 24hr - it takes a little while to "take"!

    I don't really understand the original question.  But to Lissie's statement, you can use Google AdSense URL Channels to track your earnings on HubPages whether or not you have Google Analytics configured here or not.  Google analytics will give you a bunch of other data about the traffic to your pages.
