With over 80% of hubpages visitors coming to the site directly from search engines i wonder if the hubpages team could help us as well as themselves by automaticaly adding a refferral tracking ad to every hubpage something along the lines of ,
You to could publish on the internet and make money in the process its totaly free with simple tools even a 5 year old could use, sign up today, sign up today being the link to click. just a thought.....jimmy
i definitely agree. for me, who's a newcomer as well as illiterate in the internet world havin not much interest you can say, it's definitely confusing right now for me. wat with all the link from this page to that page, or you know, i'm really confused but still trying. wat's more not much of a good writer so even my own hubs are failing me right now. hehe jus joking. but it would be useful. i forone would definitely appreciate it lots.
I guess they are already tracked by your default tracker code. (the one looks like 5easdrxyzz) but Paul knows the best.
I think you have a point the referral tracks is confusing and a lot of new people ask questions about it - there must be an easier way - Part of the problem I think is the link to this page link is so far down the page - maybe a "share this page" nearer the top would be better?
I agree that saying "Share this Page" would be more understood by the majority than "Link to this Page". A link should be visibly placed at the bottom and top of all pages for optimal results. Maybe HubPages will improve in this area soon.
Jimmy, I like the invite you have on your latest hub - looks very pro!

Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one...

Like referrals.1. Why insert an _referralcode into the URL. Couldn't you come up with a dynamic insertion solution? If an insertion was required, what's wrong with appending it at the end of the URL as in ?referrer=xyz?...

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...
