    Do we still get credit for referrals?

    I haven't seen my referral link in a while

  2. tussin profile image59
    tussinposted 5 years ago

    Yes, you still do.  But if your most frequently clicked referral link was on your old profile, that link is now lost forever, so that would explain why you haven't seen any new ones in a while.

      So, is there a way to add a referral link into our profile page?

      LauraGT, here's the way. Click "My account" then click "Earnings".  On left side of screen, click "Referrals"  This is your referral page.  At the bottom is form to make additional referral link with tracker.

    Ya I'm still getting a lot from referrals. That's actually where I make the majority of my monthly earnings lol.

    Yes, I have very recently got a new referral to sign up, and when checking my Google Adsense account I saw their subdomain as one of the sites that displayed my ads a couple of times.  I assume that I get my share from their HP ads too.

    In what way did you not see your referral link?

      Since my referral link on my profile page is gone, how do I make a new one?

      janiek13- here's how to make a new referral link.  Click "My Account" then click "Earnings".  Focus on left side of screen, .  Click "Referrals" and you'll be brought to your referral page.  See bottom to make referral link complete with tracker.

    No i got so many referrals and they have published over 70 hubs and they have more than 7000 page views but i have yet to see any penny from the Hubpages telling me this is your referral money.

    Positively, YES, hubbers still get credit for their referrals.  But in my case I get nothing from my referrals.  Up to this very second, I still get zero from my referrals.  My referral trackers indicate 18 hubbers supposedly have signed up.  The 18 managed to reach up to "signing up" stage only then vanished like soap bubbles.  Nobody of the 18 has dared to write even a single hub.  In the forum I posted if it is advisable to communicate to convince them to begin writing, but well-meaning hubbers advised they've done writing to advise their respective sign-ups to no avail.

      one of my referrals actually wrote about 75 hubs, but now I can't find them

      Have you tried tracking them through your Adsense account? Your Adsense ID is displayed on their pages, this is how you earn.  If you go to your Adsense account, look at 'performance' and then look at sites, you should see your referral's subdomain.

    Yeah. Probably. I mean, I refer hubs if they are really appealing to me and they some serious purpose to be spread around out there and I don't hestitate to share it around. The paying part was something I never paid any attention to. Maybe I should go look into it.

    As far as I know, yes.
    I personally haven't earned anything from my referrals - Apparently I've had 8 sign ups and 4 hubs written total, and with roughly 800 views total. Like nick071438 said, only a few of them have actually written and published Hubs - the others just seem to sign up and stop right there.
