Ten from Ten for Ten bonus on Flagship Hubs and Capstone Hubs

    How are subdomains treated by the bonus.  This is sort of a minor point since it seems like hubs either have the traffic or they don't, but I'm curious. 

    For example, after making a livejournal post about my new hub (http://hubpages.com/_104soe4yc7to3/hub/ … Lock-Guide) some people are following the link from their personal subdomain like username.livejournal.com instead of www. or myusername.livejournal.com

    So if you count the subdomains as one combined source (just as we count outbound links to subdomains as going to the same affiliate) you hit 10 visitors from one source very quickly.  But if we count them separately, you have the potential of getting 10 visitors from each subdomain and get 10 unique sources (100 unique clicks) from a single domain.

    (in case people are curious about how the subdomain structure might look, check out a site like livejournal example: http://boringryan.livejournal.com/ )

    I don't presume to speak for Hubpages in any form or fashion, but were it me, I would count subdomains as one lump source, looking only toward the top level domain and disregarding the subdomain altogether.

    I think gamergirl is right - but the good news is they count all the google's separate ie google.com google.co.uk, google.com.au etc

    I'm in the same mind as gamergirl.

    Its 10 from 10 domains. The subdomains are all under a main domain that would could as 1 source.
