    When I post a link on my personal website - do I want to link it back to a favorite hub of mine - or to the sign up page?  Or to my profile page?  Any ideas on this?  Has anyone had luck with this?

    Hi Lela,
    I would say it depends upon the structure of your own personal site, where you are locating the link and what you are trying to achieve;-

    e.g. to the favorite hub since if it is all about publishing, assuming visitors like your content then they may choose to sign up or subscribe to your rss feed...

    ... to the sign up page if you have a fan base at your personal site and think they will actually sign up, I'm not a huge fan of this approach since it is very easy for anyone to sign up from any of your hubs at any time..

    ... to the profile page, personally I think the profile page is of minimal interest to incoming visitors since it contains minimal info, much better to make a leladavidson hub with extended bio and pics and then link to that.

    Overall it is crucial that you add your default or custom tracker code to any external links you create since this is what counts towards traffic split. Go to Your Account - use the default or create one, I created a selection and then went back to the default since I keep it in a txt file on the desktop to be pasted into links. I would recommend the default to begin with and then perhaps develop others in tandem with a campaign of some sort.
