I have a couple of people who want to join hubpages. I went to my profile page and scrolled to the bottom. I clicked referral tracker and copied and pasted it onto my profile page, with the message, "If you'd like to join HP, click here."
Is that right? So if someone clicks that link, I'll get a percentage of anything their hubs earn??
Thanks in advance!!
thats right! You can also turn the text "if you'd like to join HP" into a hyperlink so it looks a little less cluttered. Simply highlight that text and then click the little link icon and copy and paste that tracker.
Or, you could just highlight the text "click here" then use the link icon in your profile editor and paste that whole referral link. Then all people would see is the "click here" instead of the entire link. Aesthetics, but it looks cleaner...lol
That didn't work. When he clicked on that, it just stayed on my profile page. HELP?!
I have sent emails to people asking they join my fanclub. When they signed up it showed in my tracker.
Thats because the referral tracker is linked to your profile page, even if he goes form there to the sign in page though, you will still get the referral!
I'm curious how can we find out if we're signed up under someone's referral tracker ?
When my daughter signed up she went through my profile page. So she clicked on the link it took her to the profile page then she went to the top and clicked on join where it shows that we are signed in.
I'm still confused. How can I put a link on my profile page so that someone can click on it to join HP? Just clicking the referal link isn't doing it. Yeah, I know, I'm stupid!
I think Lynne answered my question! So if someone joins by clicking "join HP" at the top of my profile page, I don't even need to place the tracker on the page. Right??
Right - that's why the link stays on your profile after they click on it - it redirects.
You can actually use your referral with any hubpages link, you just stick it in the same place.
examp: hubpages.com/_myreferralcode will take them to the front page.
You may want to find the actual sign up page and put your tracker in that link. That way, people who click on the link in your profile don't have to work hard to find it.
Basically yep that is right. If they land on your page and go directly to join then they are signed up under you. It takes about 24 hrs for them to show up as under you in the referral tracker thingy.
I've got three under me at the moment all who I have helped with getting set up. Two of them are actually producing, while the other one is scared to death to write a hub. I can't get her motivated at all.
