    If anyone would be so kind as to help me set up my Google analytics link up to my hub pages profile I would appreciate it.

    I am having trouble getting it to except the URL I am putting in. I have tried a few different ways but I am obviously not doing it properly.  I have been trying it for nearly two weeks now and I think at this stage I â��Need helpâ��   :-(

    It keeps coming back at me with the message �invalid input� when I put my URL in the box and then put in �Hub Pages� in the �account name� box..

    I think it is that I am inputting my URL incorrect? I have read the instructions, and watched the video, but I am just not �getting� it?

    This is the part I am getting stuck with????

    Website's URL: http:// https://  (e.g.
    Account Name:

    I recommend trying simply "" (without the quote-marks, no "http" or "www"). That is what I and others are using, regardless of what the Learning Center says. You are not the first person to report problems.

    I am not sure about what boxes you are talking about. The Learning Center, I believe, says to use the profile URL. I have simply used Either one should work. In either case, you should not include "http://" or "www."

    So that would be either


    In the affiliate settings section of the HubPages control panel, you do not put any URL, but your Google Analytics affiliate ID.

      Ok thank you I will try the  one now  on its own. I have tried your first sugestion. I have also tried it with and without the http and www  etc etc

      no I am putting it in the page that comes up  'sign in' not the affiliate page.

      I will try it now
