    When you are referring people to Hubs with your tracker, how long do the links stay active ?

    for instance on a website like which simply has thousands of hubs and tracker codes, if at any time someone clicks on one of those links do they get their 10% of ad impressions for a set time, or is the link only active for say 30 days ?

    I'm pretty sure your tracker code stays active for as long as you have an account here. 

    That site you mentioned is not affiliated with HP, it's someones personal site.

    yea i bet that person is doing alright, and if they stay active forever thats cool, I just thought I heard something about 30 days but maybe that was you can only get new sign ups that go as your referral after 30 days.

    The only time a tracker is going to remain active "forever" is if someone actually comes through the link and signs up.

      Your referral tracker that you attach to your links and place on other sites will remain in tact for as long as the link is on that site and as long as you are a member here at HP.

      People that click through have 30 days to sign up and become a member before you are entitled to a share of their impression, if they write hubs.

      All the hubs on that site have the owner of that sites referral tracker on them and he will get a commission for driving traffic to those hubs if his visitors click through them.

      Your trackers do not expire, the cookie that contains your tracker expires in 30 days.
