1) What's my referral link? Is it www.hubpages.com/_PamdaMan/user/new/? Because out of 4 referrals only 2 worked.
2) How to check my referrals?
I don't think tokens work within the site for sign ups, you just put use the hubpages.com/user/new link and it automatically does the rest.
If you are referring outside of hubpages, I think that is where you use the tokens.
But I have trouble with using that link too for whatever reason also. The links aren't clickable. At least that is what I have been experiencing.
That is incorrect. A person must have first clicked on a tracking URL for the cookie to be in place. If you send someone to hubpages.com/user/new and they haven't previously clicked on of your trackers then you don't get credit for the referral.
So if you're going to suggest to a person to sign up, don't have hubpages.com/user/new make sure it's hubpages.com/_YOURTOKEN/user/new to be sure.
You know, I did that and the links were not working. They get high lighted but you cannot click on them. I don't know why it is only happening when I put in a tracking token.
Is your tracker _PamdaMan? Are you sure you use it whenever you post your profile or article URLs?
Oh I see now. Then I have to ask why did my referral link work twice out of four? My tracker is not Pamda Man. I thought it was.
Ok. So I created a tracker called panda man with description Panda Man. What do I do now?
not a clue, but when you figure it out, let me know too because I am going through the same thing. Thanks to everyone
Actually the referral worked. But doesn't the referred automatically become a fan of me?
Then I must ask. My referral link was wrong at the start. But 2 of 4 tries have become fans automatically. Why?
I do not think referral and fan is the same. When you refer and if the person joins hubpages, you get the referral benefit, meaning you will get 10% impressions on the pages or topics of the person who joins from your referral. This means instead of 60% user and 40% hubpages, it will be 60% user and 30% hubpages, and 10% your ads on his pages. This is in addition to your 60% impressions on your pages.
