Paul, or anyone else...is the underscore before a URL tracker necessary in the banner/site html or is the tracker sufficient?

You need the underscore before the tracker. The second example is correct.
You should test the links. The first one will give you an error.
Also, Peter, remember that you can create your own tracker - you don't have to use the letter and number combination which is automatically assigned to you (it looks rather ugly in a link I think).
On your URL Trackers page, click the blue button to create a new tracker. Type in whatever you like and you will be informed if the term is available or not (once a hubber has bagged a tracker, it's gone and no-one else can have it).
I only understood last week how trackers work
Now I've got 27 referral members that's encouraging for me, never before did I get so many referrals for a program.
When I put a banner on myspace, first line says msplinks.com, instead of hubpages. Did I do something wrong? Haven't seen this adressed here yet.
Myspace has a system put in place to warn users that they're going somewhere outside of myspace.com so that's why you see the msplinks URL.
How do I put a hubpages banner on facebook. I am a total newb at facebook, haven't found the place where it really lets you delve in. if there is one.
