    Can I setup Adsense Channels with the Wordpress Adsense Widget?

    Hi I am fairly new to NB and I am earning a few hundred dollars a month from Adsense. I have a Wordpress blog with the Adsense widget installed.

    Is it possible to setup Channels using this Adsense Widget, to track each ad block to see how well my ad placement is performing? If so what do I need to do

    Hi guys, it looks like I screwed up didn't explain myself properly. I have a Wordpress blog and the top three posts have an Adsense ad in them which are inserted by a plugin that doesn't let me assign channels to each ad. So I don't know which ad is performing better and I don't know if I get more clicks from archive pages or detail pages because the Adsense code is the same on every page.

    Can anyone give me advice on how to track clicks better using channels and Wordpress?

    i'm not sure if you can do that actually for adsense only allow three ads per page. and those codes will always appear to all pages you have in wp/

    Thanks I thought that may of been the case. I was looking forward to having a play with the Channels function. Oh well no new toys for me today!

    You can use URL channels to track clicks on individual pages. Unfortunately, that doesn't help you figure out which ad blocks are performing better.

    Better though, would be to sign up for Google Analytics and use the recently added Google AdSense Integration with Analytics for deeper (and easier) reporting.
