I'm using adsense with both HubPages and my own blog <snipped link>. Everytime I get a new click it's from that other site. Now, I know my hubs aren't very popular, but is there any way to know if I did not get a single ad click since I started here or if there's something I did wrong?
Your profile page shows that you have had less than 1,000 pageviews. Only 60% of the page impressions belong to you. Therefore, it is plausible that you have accrued no AdSense clicks at all. If your AdSense records page impressions from HubPages, it will pick up any clicks as well.
You can integrate AdSense with Google Analytics and/or set up custom channels for each of your hubs. This will give you precise tracking.
On a separate note, you want to be careful about excessive tags. I counted more than 30 tags on one of your short hubs; you risk getting flagged and unpublished by moderators for that. About 12 should be the maximum for a short hub. It can also hurt your author score.
I tried to use Analytics as I do with my blog, but I'm no expert, and I don't know what to do when it asks me to include an html in the page. I mean I did it with the blog, but what about here?
Thanks for the heads up on the tags, I got some warnings on some of my hubs and deleted some, I'll recheck now.
You need to enable "hubpages.com" for Analytics, there is no HTML code to insert (works differently here than for blog/websites). If you cannot add a URL to your Analytics account, you will need to open another. Then you can link that to your AdSense, as well as enable it through the HubPages control panel.
Since you have relatively few hubs, setting up custom channels for each hub in AdSense sounds manageable.
WE, I don't think I've ever seen anything on my profile that shows how many views I have that the public can see when they visit it. I mean, I know how many views my hubs get when I sign into my account, but where on my profile page does it say how many times my profile's been viewed?

He's referring to the accolade. Since the OP does NOT have a 1,000 views accolade, it's easy to assume they have less than 1,000 views.
Since you DO have a 1,000 views accolade, I can assume you've had less than 10,000 views.
Its hard to tell from this, you have not given us much info. It looks like your hubs need more search engine traffic though, traffic from hubpages does not convert well.
Oli, how to add a channel for my This Is Freelance account in analytics? What will be the url? The referral one?
My question was whether there was a way of knowing for sure if I got no clicks or if there was something not done right, I don't know what more info to share, can you tell me what?
And yes, I know I need more search engine traffic
I've rechecked my AdSense account and tweaked it a bit, and today I saw 12 cents from HubPages, so thanks everybody for your help.
Good question, Donna Ferrier! Excellent answer, WryLilt, thanks for that!

How long does it take to make money with hubpages? After 160 views on 10 hubs they tell me I have 0 clicks. Is something wrong?
