I get the way it will be used and the specific purpose but just not where it would be used?
I have been on Hub pages for a while now but never messed with referral tracking because I didn't get it and didn't want to learn. However in the last several weeks I have convinced at least three writers to join and so figured it was time.
One question . . . Is the referral tracking code used when creating back links, such as StumbleUpon or LinkedIn? I mean in what other manner would it be used besides these types of sites for back linking purposes?
It would be helpful if people could list sites or places they use it so that I have a better understanding of where they are used, thank you?
you can create tracking codes for any site you want to post your article on. Facebook, Googleplus, Printerest, your own blog, Stubleupon, any site at all. You simply create your own code to insert into the URL of your hub.
I was thinking that was it but wasn't sure, so when you post your URL on another site you add the tracking referral info into the URL, right?
Go to FAQ page and type "Referral Trackers" in the search bar. Click on How do I put the hubpages referral tracker on my blog or profile page!" You will learn to insert /_referraltracker/ into the URL. You create trackers on Referral Tracker page.
I already did that or I wouldn't be asking for clarification from you . . . get real!
It is best opportunity for increasing your traffic. You can create it in your own Blog.

Like referrals.1. Why insert an _referralcode into the URL. Couldn't you come up with a dynamic insertion solution? If an insertion was required, what's wrong with appending it at the end of the URL as in ?referrer=xyz?...

I have been trying to track this down for the last few weeks. Many of my Amazon Ads are using "hubpages-20" as the Amazon ID Tracking code. (My Tracking code is "chef...-20") This all started when HP...
