How do you check your hub refferal earnings?

    I'm having a hard time finding where it shows how much you have made from people you have referred to hubpages. I can see all of my referrals as well as how many hubs they made but that's about it. Can someone tell me where I can find this info? Thanks.

        I can see the money I get from my own hubs through my adsense account but is there a way to know how much is from my referrals?

          Not unless you clicked through to each of your referrals and added their individual hub URLs to your own Adsense account so you can see your ad impressions which will be around 10% of their page views.

    I take my total AdSense earnings, subtract my personal web site and my Hubs (both of which I can track specifically) and consider the remainder my Hub referrals. 

    Unless you have some prolific and successful referral folk, you won't be earning much.

    Hubpages team may provide a system of tracking referral income.

    It is the Hubpages who pay for these referral trackers and not the Adsense.

    Hubpages gives it from their share.

      No, HubPages doesn't 'pay' for anything.

      They give around 10% of their share. So instead of having 40% of the ad impressions on the referrals pages, it is around 30%.

      If there is a click on those ads on your 10% share, then it is Adsense who pays.

        So the adsense directly has two systems of calculating the payment? I am not sure.

          It's only one system. There could be up to four different Adsense IDs that show on the one page but never at the same time.

          60% Hub Author
          40% HubPages Inc

          Unless the hub author signed up via a referrer or it's a traffic referrer then it's:

          60% Hub Author
          30% HubPages Inc
          10% Referrer

          Unless the hub author signed up via a referrer AND there's a traffic referrer then it's:

          60% Hub Author
          20% HubPages Inc
          10% Referrer
          10% Traffic Referrer

          (the 10% figures are approximates, it depends whether there is one or two referrers in the mix, more on that in How HubPage Tracking Works)

          So lets say I'm at a forum and someone is talking about wanting to buy an Emerald and I think, Jyoti knows a thing or two about gemstones, so I post a link to "How to buy Gemstone: Emerald" with my tracker in it.

          Lets say you signed up to HubPages through a friend, if ten people click through on the link to read your hub then I, as traffic referrer, will have my Adsense Publisher ID show up on one of your page views. Your referrer will also have one page view with his Adsense Publisher ID. HubPages will have two. And you will have 6.

          If someone happens to click on an ad during my page view, then I'll get 100% of the ad click revenue. But if they click on your view, then you get 100% of the ad click revenue from the traffic that I sent.

          The way the system works means HubPages don't have to touch anyones money. They just distribute the page views accordingly, it's all done when the page loads and before a person even gets to start reading or click on an ad. The money side is all handled by Google Adsense.

            Hi,
            You have illustrated nicely. Only thing I am confused is about 100% during page view.
            Please clear it.

            Thanks,

              He is refering to the fact that if someone views a webpage and clicks the advert during a publishers 60% share of advert impressions, they will get all the profit (100%) of THAT sale/click.

              However if the ad impression is made when it is in hubpages 40% and the user clicks an ad/buys something then hubpages will get 100% of THAT sale/click

              Hope that clears it up!

    Darkside is right on this one, just incase the OP was confused.

    Hubpages doesn't pay anything, only the advertising companies such as Adsense, Amazon, ebay, will pay you.  The only way you can see how much you are specifically gaining from referrers is if you do some clever playing around with URL trackers.
