Why is my latest hub not showing up in Google Analytics?

    I've written eight hubs, the last of which was published about a week ago. They all showed up in Google Analytics automatically.

    My latest hub was published yesterday and is not showing up on Google Analytics?  But it is receiving Adsense ads.

    How long does it take a new hub to show up in Analytics? Or is there a setting I forgot to activate?

    Thanks.

      I'm going to make a few assumptions, so please correct me on anything that is mistaken.

      First of all, are you using a plugin or filter to mask your Analytics page views?  If so, it might be possible that no one has visited your newest hub yet.  Disregard the HubPages stats, as they count your own page views.  You can test this by turning off the filter for your IP address or disabling the plugin and visiting the newest hub.

      Secondly, I know you said it was posted yesterday, but Google Analytics defaults to showing data greater than the past 24 hours.  You can click on the date range and select today, and Analytics will show you the most current visitor information (older than one hour.)

      Hopefully, one of these scenarios is correct.  If your other hubs are displaying traffic info in Analytics, then there is nothing else you need to do as far as activation goes.

        Thanks for the response mskills.

        I don't think I have a filter -- I didn't do anything differently for this hub than the others. How would I turn off such a filter, if it did exist? I'm not even sure what that is.

        > Secondly, I know you said it was posted yesterday, but Google Analytics defaults to showing data greater than the past 24 hours.

        This might be the issue, since even know it's only been about 24.5 hours since the posting. Maybe I'm just jumping the gun in my eagerness. (The posting has received more hits in one day than some of my others have gotten in a week.  And I'd like to know why. Don't know if this is something you can look at and analyze, but if you can, I can email you the link.)

        Thanks.

          Most likely explanation, with all due respect.

          I think both you and Website Examiner are correct.  As much as I'd like to assist you in analyzing the data, I don't think it would be wise to send any personal information from your Analytics account for the sake of security.

          As for the filter, you can mask your page views from Google Analytics by following these steps:

          1] Click on the Google Analytics link from your HubPages account
          2] Click on "Filter Manager" in the lower right of the screen that comes up
          3] Click on "+ Add Filter" in the right side of the next screen
          4] Choose a name for your filter
          5] Click on "traffic from the domains" and change it to "traffic from the IP addresses"
          6] Enter your IP address (http://www.whatismyip.com/)
          7] Select your HubPages profile and click on "Add ->"
          8] Save changes

          The easier way, in my opinion, is to download the opt-out plugin from Google: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .  This accomplishes the same thing without having to go through the above.

            Thanks Website Examiner and mskills.

            I've installed the opt-out plugin. Am I correct in understanding that from now on, visits from my computer are no longer counted in Analytics tallys (even, say from Blogger)?  That's great.

            How long after the publication of the Hub should I wait before worrying that it's not showing up in the Analytics list of URLs.  I seem to recall that it didn't take this long with the hub I published last week, but don't honestly remember.

              Yep, that's exactly what the plugin does.

              I visited your hub, so you should have at least one page view by tomorrow.  Good luck.

                Thank you so much. I'll post an update in this message as to whether the item eventually shows up.

    I'm afraid my hub published on the 30th is still not showing up in Google Adsense, and neither is the one published on the 31st (Their stats are showing up fine, btw.)

    What's odd is that under Stats for the 31st hub, the tabs are showing "1" for google.com plus more for hubpages. The Stats for the 30th hub shows only hubpages.

    Is there someone higher up I can ask about this?

    You can set up custom channels in AdSense for the hubs in question.

      I'm not quite sure I understand. How can I set up channels for something with default channels that don't show up in the first place?

    AdSense enables you to set up channels for specific hubs merely by adding their URL. Then these hubs should - repeat: should - be individually tracked. It only takes a minute and may be worth a try.
