How exactly does the referral program know if someone's signed up after clicking your link?
I know if they sign up after clicking your referral link, you can get 10% of their lifetime traffic, but does it have to be from the page you sent them to? What if they visit another hub before they sign up?
your link is tracked and any activity from your link is tracked so that if someone signs up the programs knows it. If they just click the link it is also known. As long as they use the link that you used to refer them then you get the credit. If by chance they visit another hub first then you might not get credit. I hope I have answered your question
My understanding of how it works goes something like this:
When they click on your referral link a 'cookie' is installed on their computer.
I believe the cookie has a timer and expires after a certain time (could be 30days) If the person signs up while the cookie is still valid 'you' get the referee. I also believe your 10% comes out of HubPages share of the 'time' not necessarily traffic.
