I need a refresher on how to insert a link to my profile for newcomers to sign up.
I found one post in the Forum but I got stuck as I could not find the link icon on my profile page or where to type in the URL.
Can someone please explain again step by step?
1. Highlight the word/s
2. Click on the link icon (looks like a chain)
4. Click ok
In answer to your question, "I found one post in the Forum but I got stuck as I could not find the link icon on my profile page or where to type in the URL."
go to your profile page
click on EDIT PROFILE (this is where the link icon is)
type in the text you want to use to invite people to join HubPages
above your text is a header bar for your profile capsule - click the link button - it looks a bit like a single chain link
paste your URL there
save your profile
The link provided by relache is also very helpful if you need additional details. Inserting a referral tracker is important if you want credit for the recruits that sign up through your link.
The section in your account where you can create referral trackers also explains how they work. (the green help button on the below page is where you'll find the help)

I have read everything I can, mostly through HP, about referral trackers and how to set them up but I still am struggling with this. Is there a "Referral Tracker for Dummies". I have no previous knowledge of...

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...

Like referrals.1. Why insert an _referralcode into the URL. Couldn't you come up with a dynamic insertion solution? If an insertion was required, what's wrong with appending it at the end of the URL as in ?referrer=xyz?...
