Has anyone had great success with the URL Tracker and referrals? I just read what it was about and seems like a great way to provide incentive for other hubbers to promote other user's content. Does anyone use this strategy to make a lot of money?
The URL trackers and the referrals are two pieces of the same thing. First you have to get people to come through your trackers. Then you have to get them to sign up with HubPages, and then those folks have to go on to actually building Hubs.
Until you get them to that last stage, you don't earn anything. And the earnings don't turn out to be much unless your referral person happens to build a lot of moderate to high-quality Hubs.
I thought so too, and that is worked 2 ways: signing people up and getting a portion of hub's cut of the adsense revenue if you refer people to another hub, but you only get revenue a short amount of time. If I am not understanding then the way they explain it is not very clear..
Sunseven is clearly the benchmark to aim for. I have only 2 signups who write most of my referral hubs and I think they are probably the same person. Many of the hubs are picture galleries so earnings are relatively low.
I get anything from 90% to 10% of my AdSense earnings from referral signups on a typical day so it is well worth doing..
You can find out, dear frog, if you create an adsense channel for hubpages.com and additional channels for each of your hubs. The difference is your referral traffic. Unfortunately I don't think you can work out what each referral hub or hubber brings in. (Unless someone out there knows better?)
I was reading down this thread wondering how people knew how much income they'd had from their referrals.
Yes, Google Channels only gives you 200 urls. I started using them at first, then realised I didn't want to waste my 200 on hubpages. I do use channels for a few hubs, just to give me an idea, but I plan on writing 1000 hubs (long-term), so the 200 will quickly go ... and hubpages is only a small part of my website presences.
Google aren't enabling more than 200 channels either. It's all a bit of a nuisance.
I have no idea how much my referrals make me, but I can see from the hubpages information that I have: 27 referrals 17/27 of them have written one hub 3/17 have written more than 10 hubs
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...

Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one...
I was just wondering if anyone out there would like to share their experience with the HubPages referral system. How many referrals do you have and what tactics have you found to be useful in attracting new quality...
