Just a query.. for two days when I click on url trackers it comes up with the same amount $1.49 and same amount of views and signups.
Just wondered if this happens from time to time or ???
People have left comments etc yet still same.
The amount will same the same unless visitors to your hubs have arrived via a tracker link..
You'll only get a signup if someone comes to HubPages using your link, then decides to join.
Sometimes people will come to HubPages using your link, but they won't join right then. They may come back later and join - and if they do that by just typing in "www.hubpages.com" instead of clicking on your tracker again, you won't get the signup.
People following your tracker to look at your Hubs will register on your tracker statistics, but people who find your Hub in other ways (which is probably most people) won't.
Yes you do get the sign up.
Provided they are using the same computer and do it within 30 days of clicking on the URL with the tracker in it.
Thanks everyone, yes it was the frozen same of everything that I meant. As people had left comments so that means someone had visited my hubs. Yet nothing at all changed. for 2 days every figure was the same everywhere. So thats good it must have become frozen. thanks again. Just curious.
We learn more everytime we ask and that is good.
Just went in again then and its the third day and everything is still the same.....Weird thats 3 days now.

Has anyone actually got any people to sign up for hubpages throught their url tracker and made them money. Be good to sit back and have some other people out there working for you.

Hi, I referred a new hubber to hubpages. I opened a new tracking code on my site and added her pen name. She did not sign in with my tracker as I thought I had already linked her when I opened the tracking code with her...

I've had a few people sign up under my trackers when I send out emails of my hubs, but I was wondering what some of the rest of you have done as far as setting up a more unique way to have friends and family sign up...

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?...
