    Do we have to put referral tracker for Twitter as well,if so,how do we do that? Of course,I can see the traffic from Twitter because I use the Twitter button in 'share'..but, what if some one signs up via Twitter?

    Just go to My Account - URL Trackers -create new tracker

    Label it Twitter and use that tracker when you post to Twitter.
    I don't think there is any other way to know if the traffic coming from twitter signs up under you or comes to your articles.

          The tinyurl will go to the tracker url I think. To be honest, I make so little money from the referrals I have made, I rarely bother looking.

      Thanks..but if we post the url with tracker directly in Twitter,it has the tiny url..not hubpages..tho,the url links to your hub.Whereas if we use the Twitter button in share..it straight away updates in Twitter.

        I think the option to Tweet your hub after you publish it is just for our convenience.  The bookmarker buttons in share are really for other readers to share our hubs and not necessarily for the author to share. It is allowed but shouldn't be abused.

    Make your URL tracker as suggested (though you won't be able to name it 'twitter' because it's already gone big_smile) and then instead of pasting it straight into Twitter, it's best if you shorten it yourself. Because it'll be even longer by the you put in the tracker ID.

    I use www.bit.ly and I suggest signing up for an account. The benefit of doing so is STATS! You can see how many people have actually clicked on the bit.ly link.

    So what happens is someone clicks on your tweeted bit.ly link, it sends them to your HubPages Tracker/Referral link and then it resolves to your hubpage URL.

    I wrote a blog post about it called Using Twitter.

      Yes, I wasn't clear enough.  I meant that you can create your own tracker token and then give it a twitter description.

      I use bit.ly too sometimes but I didn't know about the stats you can get for registering.  I'll do that now.

      I also ues the is.gd url shortener.  I'll check there too and see if I can register.
