I see when visitors visit the referral links but how do we know if we are getting ad-sense clicks?
Somewhere I read you have a 120 minutes I believe to claim a link whoever clicks your ref. link and a add with in the 120 min. you get credit for. What Happens when the 120 min. are over?
Go to "my account" - your statistics page.
Click on URL trackers.
It will give you information on your trackers. Click on the tracker you want to know about.
The URL Trackers data on HP does not show any adsense info.
The only way I know to tell if adsense revenue has been generated via HP trackers/referrals would be through process of elimination.
If you have a hubpages.com channel
and specific channels for each of your 16 hubs
then if the total shown in the hubpages.com channel exceeds the sum of all your individual hubs channels, then you have earned from an ad that was not on those pages (i.e a referral or tracker hit...or alternately could have came from your profile page or other select places HP shares impressions with you)
Now, would I intentionally bother watching this? ..No, but that is the only way I have noticed that would give you this capability.
I observed that when such extra adsense earnings outside my created channels for hubs, profile page or other monetized sites with adsense, it will relate such earnings as "averages."
I do see that sometimes and I guess they are associated with earnings generated from trackers/refferals shared impressions. I've also wondered how to put an exact track on Hubpages refferal earnings. Still learning.
Are you saying if I wanted to link to one of your hubs with my tracking link. I could create a channel just like I would if I made a hubpage channel in my Google account?
You could do, but with the channel limit it's not feasible to add them all as channels.
I have created url channels for some of my referrals hubs and this will show any impressions and clicks but I can't track them all. I don't track the links I use to other people's hubs because there's simply too many.

I've had a few people sign up under my trackers when I send out emails of my hubs, but I was wondering what some of the rest of you have done as far as setting up a more unique way to have friends and family sign up...

Please forgive my ignorance, folks, but I'm really not sure that I understand how Adsense works. I can see that clicks on Ads give you cash, but why is there also a running total for "impressions"?Firstly,...

I'm just curious - Do you see your HP profile page, tag pages (clicks and impressions) in adsense reports? I mean, if you are using URL Channels for it.

Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one...

I'm having a hard time finding where it shows how much you have made from people you have referred to hubpages. I can see all of my referrals as well as how many hubs they made but that's about it. Can someone tell me...
