    I did a search for this but couldn't find it. I apologize if it's been asked before. I was checking my adsense today and expected to see my usual 16 cents. Instead I was greeted with an amount of $4.63.

    Looking at my account, this amount came from yesterday due to just two click throughs. Now, I want to figure out which of my hubs these clicks came from so I can figure out what keywords are working for me.

    However, I cannot see a way to do this on my account. Is there a way to see exactly where the clicks come from, or am I just being hopeful? I haven't set up any individual URLs, just my hubpages account.

    To do this, you can set up custom channels for each of your hubs inside of your AdSense control panel. However, if you have Google Analytics and integrate that with your AdSense account, clicks and revenue from each hub will be recorded automatically.

      Okay, so I cannot do it for past clicks. That's what I thought. I'll have to set up GA. Do you set it up as just your overall hubpages profile, or again, do each hub on its own? I've used GA before, so I'm guessing the latter.

    You need to set up an Analytics account for "" (regardless of what the Learning Center says). You need to integrate that with AdSense. You need to enter the Analytics ID into the Affiliate Settings part of your HubPages control panel. That's it, nothing to set up for individual hubs.

      Thanks a lot WE. I just put all of my uls into adsense as well, so we'll see if I can get another jump. It just really surprised me to see my 16 cents rise over 4 dollars.

        You are welcome. Even if it were only 16 cents, I would have been glad to help you out. Let's see how high you can go.

    Hi all, I just thought you'd like to know, that the money coming from a click is not a constant thing, and it depends on the contract that Google has with the advertiser, not necessarily any keyword that you used.  That means that sometimes a click will get you $0.01, and if you're lucky a click could earn you $15 (although there is certainly a better chance of the lower values).

    Congratulations though, I'm pulling in a solid $0.03 every now and then!
