I've checked for this in the hub pages TOS and read the forums, but just want to confirm a question that I have.
*Is it OK to use referral links in my hubs on hub pages when I am linking to other hubs, authored by others or myself?*
If a person comes to my page, likes what they see, clicks on my hub links (either to other hubs that I have created or to good articles that others have written and that I have linked to) and then decides to sign up, I would appreciate a credit for that.
For example, my hub page on awesome blue widgets would contain links out as follows:
In terms of the 10% ad share credit, I wouldn't expect the first one to pick up credit on impression share on my own hubs (since I am already getting paid for that), but the second one may well (Since my links are keeping them on hub pages).
If someone could confirm that this is an OK thing to do I would be most grateful as I don't want to fall foul of any TOS, or as a polite Brit, any trouble of any kind, really.
Of course. This is what the referral trackers are built for.
Well, one of the things they were built for anyway.
After all - if you link to another person's hub through a referral tracker...both of you earn money from their views. I doubt HubPages would reward you for something they didn't allow ;-)

Okay, I'm trying to figure this out. Is it advantageous to use a referral link in your own hubs when linking to other hubs of your own? I notice some people use them, but most don't. I mostly haven't, but I'm wondering if I should implement it since I'm planning on doing some more cross-linking...

I just started hubbing and I was wondering if those who had been here a while could let me know what kind of results they have had with the referral program? Has anyone tried running advertisements with their hubpage url anywhere? What kind of results did that get? Thanks!

I want to know if I can put referral links in my HubPages articles. If I can, is there any benefit to doing so? I understand how they work, but i don't know if it works differently if we use them on our HubPages articles as opposed to external blog articles. Enlighten me if...

Would someone please explain to me what Paul is talking about when he says the team is removing referral links inside of hubs and is asking that we not use more of them in new hubs? I'm a bit foggy as to what he means? Does he mean that when you place a link in a hub that readers...
