Please post your good tips about using URL channels better.

Here's my tip:

Setup a url channel for google.com (or a derivative) and you will be able to see how many impressions and clicks your pages viewed in the google cache get.

A similar setup should work for other places where pages get cached under a different domain, but I've only tested monitoring google's cache'd versions.

What other tricky URL channel (or other) methods have people used to get useful stats?

Is that true? Do you allow to put google.com in your url channel?

Yes, I've been using it, so I know it works.

Why wouldn't you be allowed to? It only tracks stats for your ID, so if Google is going to show your ads on their site (on the cached pages), why wouldn't they want you to be able to track them?
