    Is there a problem putting a 'sign up to hub pages' referral link with an url tracker on a hub page? I ask this because I recently did and Yahoo refused to index my page. It might have been something else I did of course.

    I suppose I'm asking- are referral links only for use on websites besides hub pages?

    Please don't direct me to Darkside's page. I read it and understood nothing.

    Will I may be wrong, but I think you are supposed to put it on your profile page. smile

    I put signup panels on my most popular hubs as well as my profile page and have got 62 referrals so far - I have no problem getting listed on google and other search engines.

    Wow, im a little confused here.

    You can put your link with the url tracker anywhere you like, at least anywhere that will allow you to post a link including but not limited to any Hubpage that you can edit.

    How do you know "yahoo refused to index your page?"

    I bet they didnt refuse,you will be indexed in time...why would yahoo ( a company unrelated to hubpages)penalize you for placing a hubpages link on a hubpage?

    Recently I've found myself getting more love from Yahoo than Google. Google traffic hasn't dropped, Yahoo's come to the party and I'm seeing my traffic grow.

    I have plenty of referral links. My How To Hub hubs all have tracking URL's pointing to the sign up page. And on other hubs (particularly my Capstone hubs) I use trackers in the URL's that link to similarly themed hubs.

    So from my experience it's not a problem with Yahoo or a violation of HubPage rules.

    Many thanks for your replies. At least I know the problem wasn't a single referrer url.

    I made a mistake when I first published with 2 url trackers on the same page but changed it after about ten minutes. Maybe that was the problem.

    Yahoo is usually very unfussy (unlike Google) but something upset it.

    Your not suppose to manually submit Hubs to search engines. Give it a few days and let the Bots index your pages. Just be patient, remember Hubpages and search engines were made in a way thinking:
    1. You have a lack of knowledge of the internet.
    2. You don't know how to code pages in general.
    3. Your confused about everything, that's why they all have Help on there sites and additional Help though E-mails.
    4. You just want to be a writer or you just want to make money and nothing else.

    With this being in mind, someone who never used a computer before but can writer can sign up with hubpages and affiliated, be index by a search to get a ton of traffic, and then reap the rewards of making money online.

    Referral trackers don't effect search engines.
