How do I create the sign up referral tracker on my profile?
I've been reading around in vain, Hubs & the forums, I've pretty much learned how to add the referrals on hubs and backlinking. Though I cant figure out how to get the referral working for my profile page to get a new user to sign up. I cannot link to the sign up page, cause i'm logged in. Its pretty confusing. I tried typing it manually the code and then hyperlinking it, where it says edit profile. It ends up going to the hubpages sign up screen but without my code in it..... Any tips on how you guys did it. Much appreciated. Thank you so much in advance fellas!
That does sound confusing and frustrating. I haven't experienced that confusion of frustration as I mostly link to another page rather than the sign up page if I am trying to get people to join HubPages using my referral link - and those other links are easy to get on the appropriate page I want to link to - at the usual place at the bottom of the screen, where it says "link to this page."
I prefer to send possible referrals to pages other than the sign up page as other pages are more interesting, in my opinion, like the HubPages Success Stories page or The Learning Centre page.
Your link to the signup page should look something like this:
http:// hubpages.com/_YourTrackerGoesHere/user/new/ (note, I added a space between / and hubpages to deactivate the link for this post)
If you are not logged in the link will take you to the HubPages sign up page. Note, all trackers quickly disappear after clicking. You'll see it for a spilt second before it arrives to the page. This is normal.
I hope this helps.
Omg thank you so much miss olive, really you have a gift for dumbastic hubbers like me. All that was missing in my link was the / after typing out http://hubpages.com i saw it wrong somewhere and going to notify the writer. Thank you so much!
I do exactly what, or what I believe to be exactly... And I attempt to apply it to my profile page and all I get is an inaccessible link that shows my tracker number on it... It really is confusing to say the least.. Claytons was a typo and easy fix
1) you need to be signed off of HubPages (like the general visitor that does not have a HubPages account)
2) the link should look like this, http:// hubpages.com/_YourTrackerGoesHere/user/new/ (remove the GAP between the // and h)

I've read the FAQ, darkside's hubs, and several forum threads and didn't see an answer to this.If somebody lands on one of my hubs via a Google search, for example, and thinks "WTF is this cr*p? I could do better!" or (hopefully!) "Wow, this is so awesome - I want to join this site...

I have read everything I can, mostly through HP, about referral trackers and how to set them up but I still am struggling with this. Is there a "Referral Tracker for Dummies". I have no previous knowledge of this and I would love a step by step instruction guide. A lot of the instructions...

I have a couple of people who want to join hubpages. I went to my profile page and scrolled to the bottom. I clicked referral tracker and copied and pasted it onto my profile page, with the message, "If you'd like to join HP, click here."Is that right? So if someone clicks that link, I'll...

Do you still put a tracker link in your hubs?In all of my hubs I have a link in a blue box with a referral tracker with a heading offering to sign up with Hubpages to write articles. Is this still a good idea for new hubs since all the changes?
