I get the tracking code concept. What I can't find is a page to send new users to that gives them all the great reasons they should join and links it to my account so I get the referral. Anyone have a suggested way they refer other writers to HubPages in a simple way that I can duplicate?
Have you tried the 'about' page, it looks pretty good for introducing people to the site - http://hubpages.com/about/us
You can click 'link to this page' from any page on the site to add your tracking code to a link.
The About Page would be perfect but I don't see a single Sign up now link or any way for them to join from that page!
It's right at the bottom (by copyright stuff) "link to this page" it's always there on every page in case you want to direct them to different destinations.
Claire - thanks so much for trying to help me get this! You are too kind. I see and understand that part now but on this very nice and informative page it doesn't let the person whom I'm referring to be a new hubber to sign up from that page. Is there a page that tells all that cool stuff and then says - join us for free now by signing up here??? I have tons of writing friends that will like hubpages and I'd like a nice link on my other blog as well but there is no action step button for them to actually sign up.
If you put your referral tracker in this link: http://hubpages.com/tour/hubpages, your new users will get a brief intro to HubPages and a link to sign up at the end.
For example, your link would be:
http://hubpages. com/_ Insert Referral Tracker Here/tour/hubpages
As long as the user signs up within 30 days of clicking your link, you will get the referral.
Thanks for posting the reply, Robin - I wasn't sure if the referral program was still in effect. Glad to hear it!
Thanks to all of you for the great advice. I love the helpful attitude I find here!
I'm with you on that Blessed Success, I've actually made some links/tags to refer new hubbers, however I do not see any movement/views on my links. I'm unsure if I did them correctly or if no one is clicking on them. With the amount of views the hubs I put them on have getting, I would think someone would click on them.
You can see what I posted on my website to advertise for new hubbers. 10tophealthsecrets with dot and com of course! I think hubpages is a great platform and others can benefit.

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?...
