    I have tried walking others through the process of signing up under one of my links and I have signed up under my own link and I do not see the referrals showing up. Is there a delay in this?

    How long has this been going on?

    Thanks

    SM

      I have to agree with you on this one, as I have a friend I recommended and she isn't showing up under my tracker either. I understand what you are saying completely but I have never brought it to anyone's attention until now..smile When you find out how to fix it let me know. smile

    If you have legitimate referrals using the referral tracker, they should show > here

    I'm not sure how long it takes to show though.

    I am familiar with how to use the tracker, that is how I would know they are not showing up.

    Thanks though,

    I have been at a friends house and signed them up after showing them one of my hubs and they showed up in the tracker immediately.

    I made a specific tracker for them to sign up with and walked them through it and they still have not shown up.

    I hope someone can actually fix this for me and I wonder how long this has been going on.

    If you want to be sure they are tracked to, you should have them clear their cookies before clicking on your link.  If they've clicked a link from another tracker in the last 2 hours it will block your tracker from being set, as explained here in the FAQ.

      This really does not help at all. I was on the phone with my sister she
      Never heard of hubpages I gave her the link to use and walked her through the
      Signup process. Cookies has nothing to do with it. And what about me Signing up from my
      Computer - did you even read what I posted or my emails?

        Sprinkler Man:

        We're trying to work with you to figure out what could have gone wrong.  Could you send the link, exactly as you sent it to your sister, to team@hubpages.com, please, so that we can continue to work towards a resolution in a civil manner?

    If you made them a tracker to sign up with.. it won't show up as yours hmm maybe you will have to double check their settings. smile

    Ok, I have another question :

    In my recent hub about antivirus and fast computers, I have some links to other hubs that deal with similar subjects and I have placed a tracker in them.  So, now the "Traffic hub views" for that referral tracker have gone to like 220 in a week ( thats way too much for me tongue ) while my Total views for that hub are 55 ?????

    I mean if someone is viewing the others hubs through my tracked links, shouldn't the hub views for my hub also increase ??

    The hub in question : http://hubpages.com/hub/-Beginners-Guid … -Computers

      I was also thinking that.  However, my theory is that it tracks all links from that point forward, until the person in question clicks another link.  Thus, if someone clicks on a link form your page they start the tracker.  However, they may then end up reading another 10 or 20 pages on hubpages and thus generate more hits associated with your tracker.  I hope this makes sense!
