I just started putting my tracker on stuff
So far this one has received 140 views but no signups yet.
When I type this up, a picture from hubpages automatically shows up.
It will automatically direct them to my tracker, right? Or do they get the choice to go to hubpages instead and not my tracker?
I am guessing that they go to my tracker as all the page views.
So I guess I just wait for one to bite?
They don't "go" to your tracker, it redirects them to the original page where they were going, but implants a cookie in their browser. The cookie will last several hours even if they click another tracker, or quite a few days (think it's 30?) if they don't click anyone elses tracker.
To check your tracker is working right, click it and then visit this link:
It should tell you that your tracker is active, or if no tracker is active, it means its not working.
I clicked your tracker and it didn't seem to work for me - you can check you've typed the tracker name correctly by making sure it's on this list: https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/trackers
Instead of just sending them back to Hubpages with a cookie, you might get more signups by sending them to the signup page:
http://hubpages.com/_youtracker/user/new/ (where you insert your tracker.)
