    You refer for proper use of the referral  tracker (Use the Learning Center to learn this)

    When you refer someone you earn a percentage of their ad impressions

    Click on 'Earnings' in your profile, then choose 'referrals' and you'll find your referral tracker.

    Yes. At the top of the screen is your user name; hover the cursor over that, a drop down box comes and one choice is My Account; click on that. On your Account page, at the top there is the choice of Earnings; click on that; on the Earnings page, to the left in a box is the choice of Referral Trackers; click on that. It will show your referral tracker or you can make a new one. Then you have to insert the referral tracker into the sign up page URL, with an underscore just before the referral tracker. The sign up page URL is:    So, if your referral tracker is 12345678, you would put

    Then you send your friend (s) the link. If they sign up, you get credit.

      Or if you go to the bottom of a hub, there is a link to this page option; click on that, the referral tracker is already in the link; copy and paste link to email, Facebook, wherever you're sharing the link.

    For a complete breakdown on how to refer others and earn go to the FAQ page; it is #9 under "Making money on HubPages". Here is an excerpt from that section

    "Yes, absolutely! You can do so through the HubPages Affiliate Program, which will allow you to earn 10% of the Hub impressions from users you referred to HubPages. It's a great way to share in the success of great writers you might know.

    The program works like this: you'll give people you know a specially-encoded link to a page on HubPages. If they click on that link and sign up within 30 days, and before they click on someone else's specially-encoded link, then you'll enjoy 10% of their lifetime impressions automatically. That 10% comes out of our share, not theirs; they will earn 60% of impressions whether they sign up through you or not."
