Quick Idea

    Well, hubpages always asks us how they can better our earnings. I see they added a new "Join" button and they also have the "create your own" join button on each hub.

    I suggest both links, if clicked on a hub, are given to the hub authors referrals.

    What does it hurt hubpages as long as there are new members on the site?

    I think it wouldn't hurt and it might even help a lot of people out (or at least give them hope at a chance of that happening!)

    All you must do is take a hubbers tracker (any made) or set a solid one that the hubber can not delete and make that automatically read for each hub a person visits. So my tracker is on my hubs, Misha's tracker is on his hubs, etc etc.

    This would make the referal tracker a whole lot easier, and maybe more hub lovers, jumping on board. Great idea.

    Yes, but what if someone searches a google query, finds my hub, but then sees on the side another hub that may answer their question or give more information, so they click it. That hub is by another person; then they click the join button. Who gets that referral?

    I like the idea, but I don't know how feasible it is when people start clicking off your hub to other hubs by other people, but it was your hub who led them to the site in the beginning.

    Is it fair for the, say, 5th person's hub to get the referral when your hub led them here?

      The other person would get it. Your tracker would be replaced by the owner of the next hub. The script will read the tracker of the page, if they click a different link its tracker-less, so what? Its just like how we used to post them ourselves, if someone came from you already tracked then signed up from my profile text sign up link, well you would get it because your tracker isn't off that persons browser cache yet.

      Its the same old system we used now, and those buttons and that link are now always there just as a direct sign up. Its better to get any of us a bonus then not at all. It's hard enough to get active sign ups and if someone is interested in the site, there more likely to hit "Join" then any of your "Sign Up Here" or "Click to Join" text links in the hub.

    Hey I like this idea! I don't really mind if a person lands on my page but signs up through another authors hub page either, its that way if they click a google ad or an amazon ad, that other hub page deserves the clicks it gets if its written that well. If my pages are written well enough I will get clicks from traffic initially brought in by someone else right! Either way your idea could be a real boost for everyone! Sure some might get more then others, because they have honed their skills of persuasion but everyone would get a good chance of a boost to earnings even if your still knew and learning the ropes!

    I like it in that it has the potential to give me more impressions, which I'm all for.  I don't think it is really in the spirit in which Hubpages provides referral bonus however (IE: go out there and actively recruit).  I'm not one to look even a hypothetical gift horse in the mouth, so sign me up.

    I like this idea also.

  16. thranax profile image53

    What do you mean its not in the honor of the tracker Len? Most people just put them in any hubpage url to get the referral anyway possible. The only way the authors code is put onto the visitors machine is if they click Join or Create your own.

    It wont automatically add the code for just landing on the page.


    Ups it to 12 total who like. No one who is really against. smile
