Okay, I know I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I went to Google Adsense day before yesterday and I inserted my new hub into the URL Channels.
When I inserted it, I also decided to check my URL channels against all of my existing hubs and found that I had a couple of hubs that were not listed under my URL channel list. This wasn't a problem. At least I did think it was.
So, I started inserting hub URLs to make them URL channels and then noticed that I accidentally added a duplicate URL. Yes, I know Google Adsense kicks back anything that is a duplicate, however, this particular hub was accepted.
The NEW sub-domain made it a different URL as far as Google Adsense was concerned, so that means that I would have two URL channels tracking the same hub. This I found odd.
However, since the sub-domain switch....I didn't think it mattered with regards to the URL channels or even the custom channel assignment.
But, now I'm not so sure. To make a long story short, I transferred all my URL channels over to the new sub-domain URLs, but now Google Adsense doesn't seem to be tracking them?
Do I have to change the "custom" channel? And, if so, what do I change it to? All the other(old) URL channels have been deleted/removed, not just deactivated, so I cannot get them back.
I'll check back on this thread in the morning, due to the fact I am going to bed. Just wanted to post this and see if anyone can possibly make sense of it.
Thank you in advance.
I'm sorry, I'm afraid I do not have the foggiest and am, therefore, unable to help
I didn't change any of my channels with the subdomain switch and everything has continued to track the same so I'm afraid I don't have any answer for you.
Yeah, I know. Everything was tracking fine. But, when I created new hubs and inserted for new URL channels, it didn't seem right, due to the sub-domain. I guess that's what I get for not publishing hubs that often.
My only thought is perhaps it's a time factor. Adsense stats seem to be a bit sluggish these past few days. It can take a bit for the new tracking to kick in.
I switched all mine over not too long ago, but it went off without a hitch. I didn't create any custom channels, just used URL tracking. I seem to remember the stats weren't available immediately. And, as I said I've seen sluggish stats this week. Just a guess, Cags...
Cags - you have posed an interesting question.
Like others, I haven't messed with my adsense channels since the subdomain switch. I use URL tracking, and assumed, (I know...), all would be good because of HP's auto-URL redirect. Now you have me wondering -geez, as if I don't already have a full plate.
I am also waiting for Google analytics data collection to see if I have created another mess. I added analytics tracking for each subdomain account, whereas before it was one main HP account. Now to see if that worked.
I now use adsense's new "site" data to see where trafiic, claick and earnings come from. I find that a lot easier than having to set up channels for each url.
Hey Psyche, if you don't set up individual URL channels, then you won't know more details about your clicks/earnings. Especially if you tie your Google Adsense to Google Analytics.
I think that used to be the case but the new interface tracks clicks, earning etc by url automatically. So unless you are running a campaign with certain ad types on certain urls, channels aren't as necessary as they used to be.
Well, that was interesting! I didn't even know the "site" thingie was there, but found one view from a referral that signed up ages ago and has written 2 hubs. Guess that's still working, anyway.
Two years have gone by. Bump here but now, I don't know the answer either? Cagsil could you help me with mine?

I've used up all my 200 URL channels but want to track my recent hubs, so I went in and marked about 25 of the older channels and deactivated them. I just want to make sure that by deactivating them in my AdSense account, all that means is that I won't know if they are being clicked, right?...

When your adsense account is showing that you have received some clicks, is there any way of finding out which content the clicked ads were on? If that makes sense?

Do we need to verify the niche sites in Google Adsense if a hub is moved to the new domain?

I love hubpages, but I would also like to buy an easy to use all inclusive to build website at a not too expensive price. I want something easy to build. Any suggestions?
