    How do I get the referral link to work? Wanted to write a hub on hubpages but can not get the link to work.

      You need to add an underscore before the referral ID. But I'm guessing you already new that. In case you don't, here's an example:

      (omitted the beginning to not create a link) hubpages.com/_urltrackername/whatever

    Lemme clear that up a little:

    say you have a hub and the link is:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-write-online

    Create your tracker eg.badwriter

    Now place the tracker in the link like this:

    http://hubpages.com/_badwriter/hub/How-to-write-online

    Got it??

        Trackers give ur 2 hours of pepole who click on your tracker. Making them sign-up is the best way to use trackers,you get their10% revenu for lifetime or sumthin!

          Only partially true.

          The first tracker will set a cookie for 30 days.

          Any after that (within that 30 days) will give a 2 hour window of opportunity to the new tracker, before reverting to the old cookie.

            What if one comes directly from a link with referral tracker? To the best of my knowledge it works for ever.

            Thanks,

              I don't understand your question. But I'll throw some answers at what I think you're asking.

              * If a person signs up to HubPages via a tracker, then yes, that person is your referral forever.

              * If a person doesn't sign up, the cookie only lasts 30 days. Providing the cookies aren't cleared for whatever reason.

              * Without a referral tracker a person signing up won't be credited to anyone.
