Does anyone know if referral trackers at HubPages work with Pinterest? I posted a number of pictures on Pinterest with links with referral trackers to Hubs, but haven't seen anything from it. Any tips on getting interest on Pinterest? Thanks.
WryLilt shared some great tips on getting interest from Pinterest. She recommends creating images that are 'made for Pinterest' by including text on them.
Here's a forum thread she posted: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/111570
I read that one, Marcy and have continually posted those types of pix since then. Have had very little response, but love the way the photos look on my articles.

Or if there is no historical post about this can someone tell me what this is and how does it benefit a hubber? I am asked to create one but I don't know how to do that and what to...

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 this and I would love a step by step instruction guide. A lot of the instructions...

I have at least 5 referral trackers for those who wish to sign up.I have a total of 25 sign ups. This is good. However, those who have signed up are not blogging, or there is no traffic. Are these people ghosts?What is the sense of having these trackers, and someone signs up and doesn't participate...
