Got my first Adsense click!

Wow just checked my Adsense for yesterday and I got my first ever click there from Wizzley, at x.xx Euros. That's quite a nice click (most of my clicks on my real websites are much lower since I'm usually in the arena of spirituality, which pays really low).

I'm tickled pink!

My question is now, however, how do I know where the click came from? I checked my Analytics, and I only have 1 click ever, and I think it was me because I once clicked over to an Amazon product to check something about the book I promoted there. So it was not Adsense. Do we have the Adsense clicks also counted in the Analytics or I actually have to set up my own Analytics code (from Google) for those to count as well?

(still tickled pink, btw!)

Congrats!

Have you linked your adsense and analytics accounts? If not, when you go to adsense you should see a link that says something like Integrate your Adsense account with Google Analytics. 

Once you've done that you can see which page each click came from by navigating to  Content -> Adsense in Analytics. 

(An alternative is to add individual wizzles to adsense by url, but then you would have to remember to add each one.)

I haven't connected my Adsense with my Analytics because i have a number of websites with my Adsense account and the process is not so easy - which site do I add and how do I add all the sites? So far now I haven't done it yet. I think I'd need to add some code to each of my sites or something...

I don't remember it being complicated. I just clicked the link and followed the instructions.

By complicated I meant the fact that (if I remember correctly) there is some code that I have to add to all my 20+ sites (since only one can officially be automatically associated with Adsense through Analytics). When you associate only one site, it's awfully simple, on the other hand.

Hm, have to look at it again, it was about a year ago when I first tried it and then gave up.

Marcia, you do not have to add any more code on Wizzley to see where the clicks are coming from.  Just go to Adsense, and link your account to analytics.  Then they will separate the information for you as it comes in.

Yes, I'm looking at this right now. First of all Wizzley is not showing up as an option, but my 2nd blog and Hubpages are. For both of those, the directions tell me to add some code to EACH page that shows Google ads. Ugh.. Can't do that.

Jimmie - have you checked out Paula's tutorials? If you create a custom URL for Wizzley on AdSense, you can track your earnings.

Yes, that's what I did too, I added a Custom URL channel for Wizzley and now any clicks coming through any of my posts here will show through that one channel.
