In all of my hubs I have a link in a blue box with a referral tracker with a heading offering to sign up with Hubpages to write articles. Is this still a good idea for new hubs since all the changes?

FYI, here is a link to the HP FAQ on referral trackers:
The blue box near the bottom has a note on "Appropriate Use of Referral Trackers".
Thanks for the link. That's very confusing, isn't it? It says "not recommended" and "could result in your Hub being moderated." Not exactly a "No." Should I remove them?
Thanks for the helpful link and responses. I have not added the referral tracker on any recent new hubs and at this point probably will not. I used to hope some powerhouse writers would sign up under me but that didnt happen LOL.
I had one person who did sign up through one of my hubs but they never did publish any content! On the new templates being offered when creating new hubs I am not seeing any suggestion to add a referral tracker for visitors to sign up for Hubpages.
Thanks for this helpful link. I don't have outside social media and that is probably why my traffic is so low!
That appropriate use policy looks new to me and it's difficult to understand the rationale behind it. I use them exactly that way (and other ways) in my hubs but I guess since they came out before the policy they have not been moderated.
