    What is a Referral traffic? I mean does it do? Little bit curious.

    I recently explored all the things that I can click on my account then I saw this one.

    Just go the My Profile page in the black footer you will find link to this page. This link is HubPages referral tracker. Just copy the link and put it somewhere on your blog or signature to your gmail or email. Alternatively you can copy the HTML code and put it as a clickable link on any blog or site. If any  new member joins the HP by following the link and gets his profile verified through email verification then you will get earning via referral tracker. You can also send the link to your friends circles also via social networking, email ,Google+ and Facebook. I think it will do.

      PaoloJpm: Slow and Steady wins the race. Don't count dollars.Just see page views, follow hubbers, who in return will follow you. Comment on Hubs is the key to get popularity.

    You'll  earn from the referral system only if newly created accounts through your referral link create hubs of their own and earn. That's how I understand it or maybe I missed a few details. I currently have thousands of traffic from my referral link but only three led to account creation and none of them made any hub so it's less likely that the program contributed to my earnings yet.

    Pretty obvious you're asking about the referral TRACKER not referral TRAFFIC.

    Referral traffic though, is simply traffic from another site due to a backlink there.
