Hi,

When I update my website with let me say 10 new pages, I want to track the earnings of those 10 pages as a group.
I know I can make new ad units and place those on the 10 pages, but I'm looking for a more simple solution.

A simple solution would be the same ad units like on the other pages, but with someting to let me know the earnings comes from the 10 pages.

Is there a simple solution?

Consider custom channels. They may be an option for you.

Maybe I'm not seeing this the correct way, but...

To use custom channels you still have to create a new ad unit. So you may also just create an ad unit for those 10 pages.
The problem would be that after 10 updates you end with 10 ad units, and when you need to change something in the units you have to make the change 10 times.

...or can you ad more custom channels in the same ad units, and you can then track them separately? If YES that would be a more simple solution. But my first quick test lookes like you use the same code and you can't link that channel to the 10 pages.

You can track AdSense performance in Google Analytics. With GA you can track performance on the page level and thus using filters you most likely can group those pages together.

For this you need to link your AdSense and Google Analytics accounts together. Then in the Behavior report (left sidebar) in GA there will be sub report called "Publisher" that in turn has several useful sub reports.

Unfortunately, I think that is the only solution as Adsense has no option to track a group of pages. Thank you both for thinking along with me!

You can use URL channels in My ads. Create one URL channel for each page and then in a report you can select corresponding channels as a filter to get total earnings for the group.

Thank you, SergeyVlasov! That's a good solution.
