    Just a question, is there any way I can find out who this is?

      Well done Sparhawke, if you go to URL trackers, click on the tracker itself you can then see who you referred.

      I'm up to 23 but only about 5 are active hubbers smile

    I'm not sure of this, but I think you go to the statistic page, and click on URL trackers, and see what it lists?

    Again, I am not sure. Do not have any referrals. wink

    Do not get too excited about this. They will probably never show up again; just my own personal experience.

    Then again, you never know…

      I agree - same with me, unfortunately.  Over the last (almost) year, I've had 9 sign-ups and of those only 3 hubs have been published...

      The answer above is accurate as to how to see who it is - goto My Account and click on URL trackers, you'll see the number of signups under each tracker (if you have more than one) and then you can click on the tracker to see the user IDs.

    Sorry, I've got to agree with both of them as well.  I've gotten a whopping 16 referrals.  Only 1 of them ever published hubs, and she only ever published 2.  Why can't they just get with the program and start earning me money!!!!  Just kidding smile

    It's a numbers game. Most will not publish anything. Some will do a few. And a very small percentage might be as prolific as the referrer.

    On the rare occasion they may even surpass the hub tally of the referrer.

      I've had 53 signups, with 58 hubs published. Only about 20 people wrote one hub (and they are non-moneymaking hubs), lots of people wrote no hubs and one person wrote 23 (the most from any of my referrals). So as darkside said, it definitely is a numbers game!

    Im surprised at these numbers.

    to put in some perspective, i have over 150 referred users - nearing 200k thousand views to their hubs and I would probably hand over my 10% views for a $20 bill.

    You have to hook a couple prolific types (of which I have 2 who made the lions share of hubs and probably traffic) to have cause to be excited.

    I think a lot of people sign up just to make a comment or on a whim, its not often you get the type who will stick around.

    i try and promote my referrals after they publish 10 hubs in order to keep them interested and still writing.

    Actually anytime I buy online, i try and see if I can do it via one of my referrals ids once again to keep them motivated.

    @infobucket - look up darksides hub on the topic and/or click "link to this page" on the bottom of every page on HP (although my suggestion is to link to the sign up page_

      I think I've had 22 referrals at last check. Out of that I've had about 15 hubs - most from about 6 writers.

      Anytime someone who I refer writes a hub, I try and leave a comment or if they appear to want to go further, send an email etc.
