If you have multiple sites or multiple directories in your
site for different subjects and you have placed Adsense
codes in your site, I am sure you would like to know:
(a) from which site or directory you are earning the
most / least, (b) which Adsense ads are being
clicked and (c) from which page?
CREATE CHANNELS FOR EACH SITE
To get separate stats for each site / section / directory
/ page with Adsense, you need to create channels for
each one. Create a channel with a relevant name and
generate a code for that channel. Paste that particular
Adsense code to the concerned pages / sites.
GET CHANNEL STATS IN REAL TIME
Google now provides Channel Data in real time. Earlier, it
used to provide data for '2 days before'. Follow the
procedure mentioned below :
1. From 'Date Range' drop down menu, select 'today'.
2. Check the radio button : Group data by 'Channel'.
3. On the right hand panel, check the radio button 'Channel
4. Click on 'Select ALL' at the bottom of channel list.
5. Click on 'Display Report'.
Now you get the seggregated report for clicks generated for
WHICH ADS ARE BEING CLICKED AND
FROM WHICH PAGE?
It is very important to know that which pages / sites are
generating good Adsense revenue and which are not. We can
work upon those poorly performing pages. If we can get to
know about which ads are being clicked, that would make us
feel more informed for many obvious reasons.
Currently Google does not provide this data. But you can still
get it from a very nice and detailed free web stat service, Add
Add Free Stats provides a very detailed web stats which
satisfies most webmasters. You may open a free account at :
http://www5.addfreestats.com, get the code and paste it at the
bottom of each of your pages.
Make sure that in 'Your Account' section you mark 'Yes' for
'Exit link tracking'.
Now check your stats at Add Free Stats, and you will find a
"A" icon beside the visitors' ip. That means that visitor has
clicked on an Adsense code. Place your mouse over the icon,
and you can see which ad has been clicked.
You can also generate a separate report of pages that have
generated Adsense click. Select 'Exit Links/Adsense' from the
drop down menu marked as 'Pages'. Here you get a folder icon
named Adsense, the number of Adsense clicks etc. Click on
the Adsense folder icon and you get the number of Adsense
clicks on each page and which ads are clicked on that page.
Click on the 'hour glass' icon and you get the CTR, PV too
for each page.
I am no way connected to Add Free Stats. I am just a happy
user. Any webmaster working seriously towards Adsense
earning, must have this tool.
