    Hop: The act of a prospective customer clicking on a HopLink referral tracking URL (this does not include clicks received from automated Internet robots, also known as spiders)

    Uhm... no... "not set" means, that you haven't used any tracking ID when generating your hoplink.
    Try to generate a hoplink from marketplace. Do you see that option to insert tracking ID there? That's what that "not set" means.
    If you wrote there let's say "bluewidgets" then instead of "not set" you would see "bluewidgets".
    This option is there for people, who promote the same product from multiple sources. Let's say one from facebook, then youtube video, then website, so that they can know, where from did that click come.
    If you don't want to see that "not set" stuff, then just on the left panel in your analytics, click "sort by vendor" and you will see the product, instead of your tracking ID.

    If you use 4 different websites, generate your hoplinks again and enter some kind of ID, let's say "website1", "website2" etc. so you know where from did the click come.

    That's exactly what I am saying. :)
    Create new hoplink with your special ID and replace the old links.

    You can still use thesame hoplink and just add your own ID at the end and no need to generate new ones like below:

    Example hoplink: http://fass52fyig3al3nqcu6gv-9.hop.clickbank.net

    Example IDs you add at the end of your hoplink (you can use anything you want in format /?tid=?? where you replace the ?? with anything you want):
    /?tid=YT
    /?tid=FB
    /?tid=TT

    For Facebook traffic you can then use: http://fass52fyig3al3nqcu6gv-9.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=FB

    For Youtube traffic can use: http://fass52fyig3al3nqcu6gv-9.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=YT

    Etc etc....
