    I am confused with these tracker thingys.  I really have not been able to work it out.  I made one but nothing is on it so maybe its not right.  So is there a way to delete it and perhaps try again.  Thanks

    You can not delete trackers, but you can create more (up to a maximum of 30).  But there is nothing wrong with the tracker that you did make.  To use it a link just you just need to put it in at the beginning of the link like this:

    http://hubpages.com/_hughey/profile/Eileen+Hughes

    and then put the link somewhere where people will click on it.  You won't necessarily see big numbers rolling in right away -- it all depends on how many people click the link.

      On the page it says "The default tracker is all that's required, but you can create up to twenty independent trackers".

        can you change a tracker? what if you hit 30 and need a different one?

      Why would you want to post referral URL's in other peoples hubs?

        I think she meant can you refer someone to someone elses hub (a good topic perhaps?) that would get them to also sign up (even referring to anothers hub the link would stand to give you credit if they sign up as being under you..)

    I would suggest being careful with the ones you create.  You cannot delete or update a tracker once you create it.  If someone can demonstrate a real need we might increase the maximum, but so far 30 has been more than enough for everyone.

      I can't really see a need for more than 30, realistically creating about 6 is good as darkside stated using generic _about _signup  and so on can take the bulk of what you'd need to track, was just curious why theirs a limit? (I can only assume more would be useful in grand marketing campaigns but as you said you can create multiple accounts and get more trackers that way not to mention use several campaigns so there really is no need for more than that.. nuff said.. thanx smile

    The main reason there is a limit is so that nobody tries to grab up all the "good" trackers, with no real intention of using them.

    Thanks for all of that info.
