It will track all in one channel.
For example if have following url channels:
http://example.com/ - this one will track clicks on example.com, example.com/widget1/ and example.com/widget2/
|I'd like to track the URLs with the various script parameters separately. Do I need to set up Custom Channels for that? |
need to setup separate channel: url or custom (not sure though if url channel would really work in your case).

OK, thanks. So the next question is...
can I setup URL channels for URLs like this (each being a separate URL channel)?

You can put any url you like in the channel creation fields.
I've never actually tried it with parameters on the end, but I imagine it should work.
Why don't you try it and let us know?
Its certainly not against TOS, if thats what you are worried about :)

Yes, you can :) I tried and it saved url channel as I typed it (including dynamic part).

From the AdSense help pages
|To track a script that generates multiple pages : enter the full path of the script, without the '?', in step 3 below. This will track example.com/sample.asp?keyword=one, example.com/sample.asp?keyword=two , etc. |
Example : example.com/sample.asp
Send me your email addy and I will issue a money request from paypal for my $50 ;)

wheelie34, i believe OP is asking if url channels (like shown below) would track clicks separately
| 6:21 pm on Mar 28, 2007 (gmt 0)|
Correct, joelgreen. By the way, it does let you add a URL like abc.asp?paramter=1 I tried that already ... but it didn't work! It didn't track them at all. Did you actually try pouring a little traffic into them and seeing if they track?
| 7:41 pm on Mar 28, 2007 (gmt 0)|
you'll find it doesn't work, I tried it with a php?variable=1 file a while ago, I haven't heard of any changes.

Strange. Why allow such url channels if they are useless?
| 10:32 pm on Mar 28, 2007 (gmt 0)|
OK, so I guess we kind of established here, that even though you can set up separate URL channels for these kinds of URLs.. drumroll.. they won't track (work).
Then the question is transformed.. to.. is there another way to use URL channels (as opposed to Custom channels) to accomplish the same thing?

301 the page so
or somesuch and then you can url channels?

You mean redirect?parameter=dog to /dog? And then create a URL channel for /dog?
The whole point was not making the URL structure of my site a mess by creating a 100 different directories or html files (with same content), just so Adsense can track it.

he means URL rewrite so every parameter appears as a seperate page

Well you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs.
I'm not sure why you thought one url channel would give separate results - you get the total for all pages under the url for any other address.
