If my buddy Jake signed up to hubpages under me, and his sister Jamie signs up under him, is Jake the only one who makes an income from Jamie? Or will that be included in the percentage of what I make from Jake since he earns from Jamie?
I do not think we would make anything but I'm just curious and I found nothing when searching the forums all over. Anyway thanks in advance!
I imagine that happens a lot. I've wondered that, too.
The referral system here is only one level deep.
You will only earn from users you refer directly.
You can, however, display adverts 9-12% of the time on any hub on the site while your tracker is active on a user's computer. That's why any interlinking I do on my hubs contains my tracker.
It would be nice having endless streams of referral income. Athough I imagine your percentage would drop so much it wouldn't even be worth it unless you've got thousands lined up...
Anyway, thanks Wrylilt, clears things up for me.

Like referrals.1. Why insert an _referralcode into the URL. Couldn't you come up with a dynamic insertion solution? If an insertion was required, what's wrong with appending it at the end of the URL as in ?referrer=xyz?...

HiI would like to refer a couple of people who I think are great writers but I would like this referral to be tracked. I am a little confused on how to do this as on the referral tracker tutorial page it says, as an...
