    Has anyone referred a large number of hubpages signups and is it worth the effort?

    I have toyed with the idea of building a large downline of referrals to hubpages . Has this been a good idea in the past?

    I have referred four people... and because I receive income based on their traffic... paid for by hubpages and not taken from the writers I referred.. it is very worth it. How much do I make from those four writers... I do not know... but my income is rising as are those writers views... so I think it is a good idea to refer people. I even help to promote their work when I have time.

      How do you create the referral link, so when a person clicks on the link I would get the referral commissions? Thank you!

    Unless your referrals make a LOT of really high-quality Hubs, you won't hardly earn anything. 

    This was much more lucrative in the pre-Panda days.  I earned close to $100/month from referrals then but the spam crackdown saw my best referral get banned from the site and now I only make a few dollars per month from everyone else combined.

      How did you figure out what you made from referrals?

      In the pre-subdomain days, I just did the math and got a general figure.  With subdomains, you get specifics in Analytics.
