    A new feature has been added in the New AdSense interface and now we can see how the individual domains are doing. I'm surprised to see my AdSense ads in sub-domains of other hubbers. Has this happened to you?

    To view your reports, go to the "performance reports" tab and click on "sites" in the left sidebar.

      You probably are using referral trackers in your links. Are you?  If anyone clicks those links to other hubs, your AdSense ads will appears in those other hubber's hubs 10% of the time.  These things are just becoming more apparent now with the subdomains, but it was always like this so that you get credit for 10% revenue for referrals.

    I see only my own subdomain in the report.

      Try setting the date options to large - may be a month ago. If you still don't see, then probably there are no traffic referrals attributed to you.

    This isn't really that new, although the subdomain feature might make some people think it is. If you were clever and observant, there were ways to track your referral traffic before, they just weren't as obvious.

    you'll probably benefit from reading the FAQ section that talks about how ad referrals work on HubPages, because it's been Ike this all along.

      The question is, why would other peoples hubs appear in that report. Seems to me that they shouldn't.

      I did not know traffic referral system still exists, and they are not my new signup referrals.
      So, it makes some sense now!!
      Thanks!!

        They don't need to be signups. Anyone who clicks on a referral link that you might be using to point to another hub will make your AdSense ads appear in 10% of the time. That's your referral revenue.

          Yes, I'm using referral trackers in the links. But I thought traffic referral system was discarded as it was not mentioned in the "Affiliates" page.
          Thanks so much!

            We still have them. Go to your account page and click "Earnings" and you will see the link for "Referral Trackers" - on that page you can see how many signed up under you, how many hubs they published, and total traffic to each.
