    I recently starting getting a little jolt in my adsense clicks (which is a good thing) but I can't tell where the clicks are coming from.

    Is there a way to track lets say these clicks are coming from this page? etc etc?

    Thanks

    The easiest thing to do is setup a channel in AdSense. This will give a unique code that goes with the ad so you can tell exactly where a click is coming from. I use a different channel for each placement I have on a page so I can tell if the click is coming from the top ad, content ad or sidebar ad. It's very easy to setup, just take a look in your AdSense account.

    There is one way that I can think of. You would have to set up a seperate channel for each page. Basically you would have to take out the codes you currently have on your site, and set up a new code for each page, and make sure you create a seperate channel for each code you create. Then you would be able to tell where the clicks are comming from...... There may be an easier way, but thats the only way I know. Hope it helps you :D

    channels are the easier way by far, but it can get cluttered easily.
