1) What's my referral link? Is it www.hubpages.com/_PamdaMan/user/new/? Because out of 4 referrals only 2 worked.
2) How to check my referrals?
I don't think tokens work within the site for sign ups, you just put use the hubpages.com/user/new link and it automatically does the rest.
If you are referring outside of hubpages, I think that is where you use the tokens.
But I have trouble with using that link too for whatever reason also. The links aren't clickable. At least that is what I have been experiencing.
That is incorrect. A person must have first clicked on a tracking URL for the cookie to be in place. If you send someone to hubpages.com/user/new and they haven't previously clicked on of your trackers then you don't get credit for the referral.
So if you're going to suggest to a person to sign up, don't have hubpages.com/user/new make sure it's hubpages.com/_YOURTOKEN/user/new to be sure.
You know, I did that and the links were not working. They get high lighted but you cannot click on them. I don't know why it is only happening when I put in a tracking token.
Is your tracker _PamdaMan? Are you sure you use it whenever you post your profile or article URLs?
Oh I see now. Then I have to ask why did my referral link work twice out of four? My tracker is not Pamda Man. I thought it was.
Ok. So I created a tracker called panda man with description Panda Man. What do I do now?
not a clue, but when you figure it out, let me know too because I am going through the same thing. Thanks to everyone
Actually the referral worked. But doesn't the referred automatically become a fan of me?
Then I must ask. My referral link was wrong at the start. But 2 of 4 tries have become fans automatically. Why?
I do not think referral and fan is the same. When you refer and if the person joins hubpages, you get the referral benefit, meaning you will get 10% impressions on the pages or topics of the person who joins from your referral. This means instead of 60% user and 40% hubpages, it will be 60% user and 30% hubpages, and 10% your ads on his pages. This is in addition to your 60% impressions on your pages.

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? or would that make it too easy for hubbers?2. Why do pages like the Referrals...

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 of my hubs to someone else's via a traffic tracker, again, it does me no good,...

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve site structure, we are removing HubPages referral links from published Hubs by deleting their tracker IDs. HubPages referral links were always intended for use outside of HubPages, and because they redirect, they may cause some page rank to be lost. ...

I just started hubbing and I was wondering if those who had been here a while could let me know what kind of results they have had with the referral program? Has anyone tried running advertisements with their hubpage url anywhere? What kind of results did that get? Thanks!

I spent some time searching and couldn't find the answer so...Does including a referral tracker destroy the value of the backlink? If so, is using a referral tracker for the interlinking between your hubs greater than the value the backlink will provide?
