    I know when I started at hubpages I had heard about it from a article. I'm not sure If I ignored the link directing me to hubpages or if I clicked it, I can't recall but I do know it was from a article that had landed me at hubpages. So I am wondering.. Who is it! Who is making their money off me through the referral tracker, will you reveal yourself? Lol.. They must be happy to have someone follow through and make posts as I've had 9 signups and only one of them has written so far.

    So this is an attempt to find my referrer If I have one, who are you!!

      Definitely not me. All my referrals are slackers and never wrote a single hub, about half of them had been banned from Hubpages mad

    Not me.  I have about 180 referrals but you are not one of them.  Out of those 180, only about 15 have actually written any hubs, and usually it's only 4 or 5 at the most!

    It's me.  Truth is I am a little disappointed.  You need to work a whole lot harder.  37 cents so far. Poor.

        I only have two who I would class as "successful hubbers" sad

          Hey 2 successful hubbers is better than 20 non-successful. I'm assuming you made a article about hubpages on a different site and that's how you accumulated so many?

            Yahoo answers. Back when I was new and thought referrals would make me money smile I got banned off Y!Answers but all my links are still there, so I still get regular signups lol.

            Darkside is the king of referrals. He has thousands. And from memory he hit 10 million referral views.

    I didn't refer you. 

    I often wonder who referred me.  I followed a link from a message board on Textbroker, and signed up right away. Of course I can't find that message board anymore, and don't know who it was that referred me.

    It's not me.

    I've two successful hubbers under my belt - although that's not been "worth" a great deal it's nice to see somebody put some effort in.  There's another few that produce bits and bobs here and there.

    My referrals have generated over 2,500,000 views to date.

    The system doesn't make it easy to keep abreast of them all to be honest.
