How To Track Snipsly Article Views With Google Analytics Sign Up

Updated on April 20, 2011


If you write for Snipsly, at least as of Oct 2010, you'll notice that Snipsly does not track your article views for you.  At least not yet.  According to Snipsly, they will be rolling out a feature that will allow you to track the amount of times your articles have been viewed.

In the meantime, you can use Google Analytics to track your article hits on Snipsly.

Step 1

Remember when you signed up for Snipsly? You went through all the contact info, user name, etc etc and then you entered your Google Adsense ID in the "My Advertising" section?

Well, you might also recall that just below the block you entered your Google Adsense ID, you had the option of entering your Google Analytics ID. 

If you were like me, you may have skipped this part thinking you don't need it.  Technically, you don't need it but article views to me are a huge indicator of my blogging success (or lack of or huge lack of :-)

Get your Analytics ID by first going to I was able to sign in using my Adsense user name and password.

Step 2

Once your are logged in, you'll be able to create an analytics account with all the typical info you need when signing up for just about anything.  You will also need the website address of the site you are tracking.

Step 3

Google Analytics will assign you a number. It will look like this UA-xxxxxxxx-x.

Do You Use Snipsly and Do You Like it?

See results

Step 4

Copy this number or write it down. Then go back to your Snipsly account

Step 5

Once back in Snipsly, navigate you you "My Advertising" section and enter that code, including the first two letters in the block just below you Adsense  ID.

And that is it!

I hope that helps you to track your Snipsly article views with Google Anaylitics sign up.

As mentioned in my introduction, Snipsly indicated there will be article views in the future, but it still never hurts to have some extra Google tools in your blogging arsenal.

Thanks for reading!

      You are so welcome. Hubpages will earn more money than Snipsly (I haven't seen revenue from Snipsly in a while but I haven't posted as consistantly as I used to). You might be able to benefit from Snipsly by posting unique content on Snip and then backlinking to your Hubpages Hubs or other personal blog posts you might have.

      Thanks again!

      Thank you so much TurtleDog, that actually helps a lot!!! I was able to connect it and it did appear in my performance reports, I am still not sure if Snipsly, or Hubpages for that matter worth my time, I am creating hubs, but slowly getting discouraged :) Thanks again!

      Hi! Oh boy... I haven't messed with Snipsly settings in ages (back in the day when there was good money in blogging lol). That said, I checked my own advertising codes and Google Analytics and was suprised to see that I can still see article views.

      I'm not sure that I can answer this but let me throw a couple answers at you that you may have tried or already done correctly:

      Sometimes you have to wait a day or two for it to appear on Analytics. You left this comment about 15 hours before this reply so give it another day and see what happens.

      Each account (ie snipsly, hubpages, etc) gets a separate analytics ID. Make sure you made one for Snipsly and you aren't pasting in your Hubpages Google Analyt ID

      Another thought if you've already waited a couple days is maybe you forgot to enter the prefix or suffix of your codes. I'll bet you did this just fine but it is worth a look.

      I'm sure you've done this aOK but make sure you've included the "Pub-" in front of your publisher identification number and the letters infront of your Analytics identification number (mine starts with "UA-"), also remember to include the dash and the final digit at the end of the code if you have it.

      I'm kinda out of ideas right now.... sorry if that does not help. I do appreciate you stopping by and checking out this post though and commenting. Good luck! Hope it works

      Thanks for the great hub, but I have a question, I did all of that what you said, entered both Adsense Id and google analytics Id in Snipsly advertising section, but when I go to my anylytics account it only shows my hubpages account, no snipsly, why might this be?
