I am new to the community and I am trying to figure out if I have mis read any info concerning the referral tracker that lets me earn on others clicking onto my special tracker. I want to know if I get credit when the referral is directed to my profile page or one of my hubs directly. Should I link the tracker to the hub where they can sign up or to my profile where they will go to the home page to sign up. How do you know if they signed up under my tracking code. I hope that makes since and can help someone else. Thanks. excited to get started.
You can place a referral tracker in any link that is to a page on Hubpages.
As soon as they click the link, they will have a tracker cookie placed on their computer - this means that if they sign up in the next few hours, the referral will be yours, or if they sign up in the following 30 days without clearing their cookies or clicking someone else's referral link.
You can check clicks and sign ups here: https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/trackers
