Understanding Referral Trackers

    I understand you receive about 10% of page impressions from people who sign-up under your url tracker, and get traffic to there hubs.(if they have any)

    I still am not completely clear on this though. Does this mean if someone made $50 dollars a month you would receive 10% of that? Or does it not mean that exactly?

    If anyone clicks on ads on the page impressions that belong to you, whether on a referral tracker or your own impressions, you get 100% of the revenue from that. There is no revenue sharing involved.

      So if someone clicks on an ad from a hubber's hub who is signed up under me, I get 100% from that click?

      Then why did you say no revenue share is involved?

        If all of the AdSense money was put in a pool and HP took 40% and gave you 60%, that would be Rev Share. Here, you get 100% of the money you make off of your own impressions. Very different.

        Say, you get 10% of the page impression on that hubber's hubs. That is 1 out of 10 page impressions.

        Someone clicks on page impression 1 (yours): You get 100%
        Someone clicks on page impression 2-10 (not yours): You get 0%

        Therefore no revenue sharing is involved.

        It works the same way on your own hubs, where you get 60% of the page impressions, HubPages 40%.

        Someone clicks on page impression 1-6 (yours): You get 100%
        Someone clicks on page impression 7-10 (not yours) You get 0%

        Therefore no revenue sharing is involved.

        Revenue sharing would be a split of the revenue. What occurs here is a split of the page impressions, not the revenue.

        (You wrote: "I still am not completely clear on this though. Does this mean if someone made $50 dollars a month you would receive 10% of that?..."

        That would be revenue sharing, and is not what is going on here).

          Okay, I understand now. Revenue sharing would mean that you make money from whatever they made total. This is not that.

          This simply means you make will make revenue if they get a click from the hubbers's hub if it just so happens to be that 10% the other 90% is nothing 0

          Thanks for the clarification.

    Consider it Impression Sharing instead of Revenue Sharing smile
