On my Referral Tracker it looks like I don't have anything--anything at all
Traffic Tokens--lists my tracker.
Hub Views -gives me a number
What is the use of this referral chart if there isn't going to be anything in there? Shouldn't there be a nunmber in all of those categories--if there is on the accounts page and in the hub statistics?
Hub views = number of hub views that your tracker has generated
Sign ups = will only show a number if they sign up while still under your tracker
Hubs = The number of hubs that those who signed up under you have made
Hub traffic = The traffic that your sign ups hubs have gotten
There will only be numbers in there if you someone clicks on your tracker.
I hope this helps ;-)
Have you ever actually used your referral trackers in links?
If not, what you're seeing is completely normal.
Yes I do and in every single article that I have published everywhere and in my signature line on my e-mail. That is what is so puzzling. I am getting readers from all over the net but nothing is showing up in my referrals--only in my stats.
I do know two that have signed up--and they said that they used my link, but they are not showing up under me. I simply do not understand why they aren't or how to get them there.
Hi Lady Guinevere
Please post a link here of your "tracker name" and a link (URL) you have used it in ,and we will easily see if you have implemented it correctly
I would love for you to come by and read my articles: http://hubpages.com/_35sahxpt0lubf/prof … +Guinevere

If you want to join me and write your own hub articles then use this address:
Another person signed up under me--Devisun7 and it doesn't show up under me either.
The fact that your stats show HubViews means that you are getting traffic through those trackers, but that nobody has actually signed up through a tracker. Trackers only give you dibs on that visitor for 120 minutes, so if someone looks at your hub, bookmarks HubPages, and comes back later to sign up, you do not get credit for that person.
I agree - somehow this doesn't seem very fair. Some of the articles on-site are excellent, but are long articles. I'll bet that many people bookmark then return later to finish reading many hubs. I suppose we should put reminders throughout our hubs lol "Finish reading withing 120 minutes or this hub will vanish into thin air."

I just started hubbing and I was wondering if those who had been here a while could let me know what kind of results they have had with the referral program? Has anyone tried running advertisements with their hubpage...

I've had a few people sign up under my trackers when I send out emails of my hubs, but I was wondering what some of the rest of you have done as far as setting up a more unique way to have friends and family sign up...

Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one...

Specifically -- how do we invite prospective hubbers to sign up (to our credit, if possible). Is there some kind of clicker or button or other sign up tool that credits us as a referral? I thought there...
