I have spent a maddening Sunday afternoon trying to put a notice at the bottom of a hub (and subsequently to all of my hubs) saying simply: "To investigate joining the HupPages community of writers click here. The link URL I put for click here was https://hubpages.com/signin/. But it was redirected to my feed URL http://hubpages.com/feed/, to which a potential new writer could only shake his or head in confusion. The one and only page that makes any sense for a new visitor interested in joining is the sign in page which has a "take a tour" button.
I was also trying to paste a referral tracker but gave up. After 3 hours of trying I figured that the way to create and insert one has changed
I inserted URL/_mytracker. Didn't work with or without https://
I shall now try to catch the END of the Jets game.
The link you want is https://hubpages.com/user/new/
Insert the tracker after the .com/ and before the user/
Unless it has changed, of course.
That's because you're confusing "sign IN" with "sign UP". The correct link is as Izzy says,and the tracker goes after the .com.
