Hi, I have 3 persons whom I invited to join HubPages. The 3 have joined but is not indicated in my account. Is the default tracker token (2w8181s6dzxdv) in my Referral Trackers page the correct one to use?
Hey WalterPoon! Thank you for referring your friends to HubPages.
It does not matter which tracker token you use- we simply provide the ability to create/use different ones should folks like to keep track of who came from which campaign (e.g. some folks have dedicated tokens for Twitter, others for Facebook, email, etc.).

Seems like you also need to put an underscore before the tracker number... Hope I got it right. Can anyone confirm? Seems like it's not working for me or do I have to wait until they start earning money before it shows in my Tracker page?
Hi Loksmi, yes, I remembered because if I don't put the underscore, the link doesn't work. But lately, I had some problems with malware and even my HubPages' link to Facebook was hijacked, causing me to be banned 4 days in a row because I wasn't aware of that. I saw the HubPages link in my Facebook apps list and since I did link it (like I have linked so many others), I thought it was not the cause. Anyway, I have deleted the link and so far, no problem.

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...

I spent some time searching and couldn't find the answer so...Does including a referral tracker destroy the value of the backlink? If so, is using a referral tracker for the interlinking between your hubs greater than...
