Can someone explain the referral tracker to me? I went to that page on my account and found a code there I do not know anything about. I added a new tracker code, my own, but do not really know how this works.
This should help: http://darkside.hubpages.com/hub/Referrals
Easiest way to use the referral tracker is to go to the bottom of the page of a Hub (or even this page, if you want to test it out) and click on the link there that says "link to this page"; a box will pop up and has a url in it that already has the referral tracker in it, and you can copy it and paste it wherever it is you want it where you're sharing the link. The referral tracker code goes right after the dot com slash in the url; you can see it if you click on "link to this page" at the bottom of this page.
NateB11's explanation is the easiest answer. If you are looking for a non techie explanation, I have a hub that explains it in layman's terms: Creating Referal Links for your hubs. It used to get a lot of traffic (15k views) but that has gone away recently. Not sure why.

Is Referral Tracker still working?I can't get the referral tracker to work in my URL when I format it myself. Neither can I find the "link to this page" option at the bottom of hubs? Is it me or is it no longer available?

What can you do with the referral tracker, and how do you do it?
