A month or so ago, I decided to use Xomba as a source of backlinks to my hubs and have been slowly bookmarking all my hubs there, and wrote one short article as well.
I am beginning to see a few adsense clicks from Xomba, but am unable to determine just which backlink or article they came from.
Is it possible to include that data in analytics? I have searched analytics for information, and it sounds like it is, but can't figure out how to do it. It would be nice to have a separate "channel", but not necessary as the article or backlink title would tell me what I'm looking for.
Hubpages makes it so easy to sign up with analytics that I never did really understand what I was doing; it worked and that was what counted. It seems like I need to use my Xomba profile URL, but also to input some information to Xomba to make it work, and have no idea at all what to give them or where to put it.
I believe you have two options (I'm hazy on the second so someone else may need to clarify.)
1. Set up channels in your adsense for each page you wish to track (up to 200 pages.)
2. Making Xomba your main site in your list of analytics sites... however I believe this poses a problem because you do not own hubpages, meaning it needs to be your main site to track adsense.
The only other thing you might be able to try is a second analytics account - have no idea if you can link your adsense to multiple analytics, so I'm probably wrong.
Sorry I can't be more helfpul!
I've already set up Xomba as a channel in adsense, which is how I know I'm getting clicks from there. To set another channel for each Xomba page...Ugh! There will be a page for each hub I have, and it isn't worth that much effort to find out which one is getting clicks!
Besides, I would run out of channels before long.
Thanks though, Wry, for the reply.

I have diligently watch my adsense and analytics charts and graphs for over a month now, trying to get a clue that I was doing something right. Today I actually found I made money in June - my first real month of effort. A whole $.02! I hadn't realized I could make money...

I've used up all my 200 URL channels but want to track my recent hubs, so I went in and marked about 25 of the older channels and deactivated them. I just want to make sure that by deactivating them in my AdSense account, all that means is that I won't know if they are being clicked, right?...

It wants me to enter a tracking code into hubpages as if it were my own website. How do I do this on hubpages to figure out what articles are generating income, and things like that?
