    I just started putting my tracker on stuff
    I did:
    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:

    Instead of just sending them back to Hubpages with a cookie, you might get more signups by sending them to the signup page:

    OR (where you insert your tracker.)
