Help !! google adsense - custom channels vs url channels

    Hi folks, been working on updating my hubs and making neccesary changes to my google adsence channels. I desperatly need some help/advice - My question is,..

    Should I set up both (custume channel & url channel) for each website / hubpage link ?  I thought I once heard or read its best to have either one or the other,and that having both makes your adsense reports inaccurate. 

    How have you set yours up for ultimate success ?

    Thanks Bunches !!!

    Nothing makes your adsense reports inaccurate - if you use right reports for whatever info you need.

    I don't see a way to use custom channels with hubpages because you do not have any control over a single ad, so url channels is the way to go IMO. smile

        For my major money making sites I have both url channels for major pages and custom channels for every ad spot - which gives me kind of a matrix to analyze. For minor sites that get a click every now and then a single url channel for a whole site is enough. smile

    Hey Army Infantry Mom,

    Nice to see you in the forums again. smile Hope things are well. smile

    Hubpages should be your "custom" channel, then each hub you write is assigned an individual URL channel, under the Hubpages "custom" channel.

    I have assigned URL channels for my separate blogs, which I have setup. However, I guess you could add a new "custom" channel for individual websites/blogs, if you want, but I don't think it would be necessary. smile
