Create a URL channel

A URL channel allows you to track the performance of a specific directory or page on a site that you run. To create a URL channel for one of your sites, first make sure that you’ve added the site to your “Owned” site list.

The maximum number of channels we offer is 500 URL channels per AdSense product.
  1. Visit the My ads tab.
  2. From the sidebar, choose your product, then URL channels. Note that not all products support URL channels.
  3. Select a domain or subdomain from the drop-down list.
    If your site is not listed, select New owned site in the drop-down and add the site to your list of owned sites.
  4. Enter the directory or page you want to track. For example, if you want to track all pages below a specific directory, let’s say, enter widgets in this field. If you want to track a specific page, for example,, enter index.html here.
    If you want to track all pages across an entire domain or subdomain, you can leave this field blank. Alternatively, you can access the Sites report on the Performance reports tab in your account, to view data on your domains and subdomains.
  5. Click Add.
