    Hi, last night I was trying to help EagleKiwi setup a URL tracker, but am having problems.  Mine is the top one of the 2 below and seems to be working, whilst the second one (EK's) doesn't, but they both look the same to me.  Is something obviously wrong with it that I'm not seeing?

      They both look incomplete unless they are the default trackers. I take that back, when viewed they do not have the other extensions

      They're not the same. This _1yze1gg3p11lr is different to this _3jjbvcfwmgmef

      That are your respective default tracker ID's.

      Because the URL is http://hubpages.com/ you're sending a visitor straight to the homepage. If they sign up to HubPages at any time in the next 30 days, you get the referral.

      If you send a person to this URL http://hubpages.com/_1yze1gg3p11lr/forum/topic/15468 (notice that it is your referral ID) then it will resolve to http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/15468 and again the visitor will be cookied with your details. So if they sign up at any stage, you get the referral.

      I go into more detail in this hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/tracking

        Hey Darkside, thanks for taking a peep, yep I know they're not the same, they're two different IDs, but do they look (as pasted above) like they should be working?

        Clicking either of them takes me to my profile page, hmmmm, very confusing, will go read your hub and see if that helps.

          It's taking you to your profile page because you are signed into hubpages.  When I go to hubpages.com, I go directly to my profile.  So the links you left on both will automatically redirect unless you are signed out.

    Thanks for the reply Earnestshub, what extensions are they missing?

    My link doesn't seem to be working now either, which is odd because I've had 25 sign-ups using that exact link, hmmmm, confused.
