    I'm sorry, I still don't understand at all.

    If I want to put a link on my hub, or profile, saying something like, "writer? Sign 'ere, darlin'!" I don't understand how to do it. I read both your hubs, darkside, and I still don't get how to do the above.

      * First, you need a URL with a tracker in it.

      * This is the tracker page.

      * On there is a link that says "Create a new tracker". Click on it.

      * Type in the the field for "Tracking Token", lets say: londongirl

      * In the field for "Description" you describe where you're using the tracker. This is for your eyes only. To help keep a... track, of the trackers. So you might call this one "my website referrals" so you can remind yourself that you'll be using this tracker on your websites. Or you may give it a specific name, because you want to track all your traffic from the individual sites and blogs you have. How you manage it is up to you.

      * So you've created your londongirl tracker, you now have to put it in a URL. Any hubpages.com URL. You put it straight after the hubpages.com. And with an underscore. So this is what a link to the sign up page would look like: http://hubpages.com/_londongirl/user/new/

      It is definately worth doing, as I have had a number of people sign up for hubpages.  And I should imagine with your higher level of hubs you will be able to get even more sign ups.  Once you have done it just make sure that anytime you put a link to any hubpages page you add in a tracker and you may get sign ups.  And after all, as you 10% of the Adsense impressions on their page, this is equal to money for very little work (all that needs to be done is the tracker added into all links).

    Just a reminder: Once a person clicks on a tracker, it will go to that URL but then resolve to the proper address. But what they don't see is that a cookie is stored, so if a person signs up, it credits to you. That cookie lasts for 30 days.

    You can use it on any hubpages URL. For instance this thread is http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/14510 so you could have http://hubpages.com/_londongirl/forum/topic/14510

    If you wanted to send traffic to the front page you'd have http://hubpages.com/_londongirl

    You can also use it to send traffic to other peoples pages.

    I go into more detail in http://hubpages.com/hub/tracking and http://hubpages.com/hub/referrals how it benefits you. It's not just for sign ups, but you get around 10% of the ad views.

    Thanks, both. I'm thick as two short planks, but that really did help. I *think* I've managed to do it in my profile. Fingers crossed.
