      You can embed a referral tracker into the URL for any HubPages link (including to any of your Hubs) and if someone follows that link and signs up within 30 days, you'll get 10% of their lifetime ad impressions.

      You can learn more here:

      Also on the Referral Tracker page - just click the Help button:

        I have been wondering about the Terms of Use, Section 9, which says:

        "...You may also earn money through HubPages by registering as a user, tying Your IDs to Your HubPages account and then referring people to the Website. If they register, and create Hubs, HubPages will place Your IDs on 20% of the Hubs impressions from the HubPages share that the users You signup create..."

        I cannot understand why the TOS says 20%, when the actual number is 10%. An explanation would be appreciated.

          It's 20% from the HubPages share, which is 40%.

          20% x 40% = 8%, but I know for a fact that it's 10% in practice. I'm not sure why it's worded that way.

            Thank you! I had considered that possibility, and could not get the math to work out either.
