- From HubPages Help and Learning Center -
We recommend the following settings:
Website’s URL: hubpages.com/profile/YOURPROFILENAMEHERE
Note, if your username has a space, use %20 in its place (e.g. profile/YOUR%20NAME). If, due to another odd character, your profile name doesn’t work, don’t worry; you only really need the UA code which you’ll enter in to your affiliate settings.
The problem is that you WILL receive an Invalid Input Error and CANNOT advance thru the first page.
The Website URL is ONLY looking for the Domain, so it should look like this instead:
Website’s URL: hubpages.com
You will need to modify your GA Account *AFTER* it is created to reflect /profile/YOURPROFILENAMEHERE
- As noted from the GA Help Forum
STEP 1 - when you are initially signing up.. there is the box with http or https to select..leave as http
and enter hubpages.com in the section where you enter the rest of it
In other words, you only need domain url in there..
STEP 2 - Once you have the account setup.. then you will have to edit the Main Website Profile Information under Profile Settings.. and enter your Website Url as hubpages.com/profile/YOURPROFILENAMEHERE

I am part of the HubPages ad program, so the amount I earn via adsense is lower than what I usually earn via HP ads. But yesterday, 19 April 2015, I noticed invalid click activity. On an average, my hubs get a total of 1 or 2 clicks max, but on the 19th of April the report showed 50 clicks and the...
