    I have several blogs running Adsense and I got some clicks but I do not know from which blogs. Is there anyway to find out as Google Analytics do not provide that info?

    I need to know which blogs is really working so I can better focus my time on it.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Log into your account, click on help, and read the section on setting up channels.

    You'll see when you read the recommended info. on channels, that you can name your channels. You can get really detailed if you like, but I keep mine pretty basic.

    I name them for my site and then the position in which I am placing them. For instance, I have a channel named CCM-top ad. I know that stands for Chocolate Candy Mall and it is in the top banner position of the page.

    Just name the channels in a way you can identify. Each channel will create a new code which you will copy and paste into the position you want. Then when you check your adsense account, you can view your report by channels and see where the clicks are coming from.

    See how you go and let us know if you get stuck.

    I see that the setup is for tracking individual types of ad blocks.

    I just want to track which blog is getting the clicks. I shouldn't need to copy and paste anything to monitor whole blogs right?

    The Google Help and Reports sections are very confusing.

    In the section where you start your channels name each channel after each blog. THEN, when you log in to adsense you can filter by channels. Just click AdSense for Content top channels and it'll give you a breakdown of what is on there.

    If you have multiple websites, Adsense gives an option to monitor statistics by website address . These are accurate, there was an error in the other channels recently

    pcwork,

    I didn't see that option. Hmm. Could you "point" me in the right direction. That would be a convenience to have it monitored so simply.

    Adsense Setup-->Channels--->select URL to input your domains, can include specific pages.

    To see reports:
    Reports--->Advance Reports---click on Channel data to select your domains to view.

    The reports are still not accurate as they showed only 1 click during the whole of November when I had more than that.

    Thanks. I'll try that and see if I like that method better than what I am currently doing. [​IMG]

    I understand why I see few clicks when I have more. It's just that the reports will only show clicks after I have set up the URLs and does not reflect earnings prior to that setup. Total earnings will still show on the Overview.
    This report is just what I wanted in that it shows each blog has x number of visitors and how many clicks on which blog and how much was the clicks worth.
    Good stuff.

    Thanks to those who pointed the way.
