Ok, I don't think I did this right- I tried to put a HubPage banner on my Yuwie- I copied the code and then added a unique tracker url- but it's sending me right into my account from my Yuwie.
Can someone please help?
(BTW- cool that we can add a HubPages banner- don't know why I didn't do this before!)
That´s probably because you are login. Try to logout from hp and try again .
Yup you were right- I guess I did do it right- it's working OK now. Thanks!
I don't think your tracker is supposed to appear when it redirects to HubPages, but I do believe HubPages still records it. It if gets you to HubPages then I think it is working.
Thanks Peter- so I guess when I copy and pasted the banner into my Yuwie it already had my referral link in there?
(BTW everybody- these are nice banners to put on your sites for people to sign up under you- great referral tool)
It looks to me like you're missing the referral tracker. You need to add the thing in bold below to the HTML in the banner.

I'm sorry, I misunderstood. I though you were talking about the redirect to hubpages from the banner on your site. My apologies.

Hi, planning to open another hp account to publish hubs on a specific niche..is it against Hubpages TOS to signup through your own referral link?
