What is the use of referral trackers ? How can I create trackers for my hubs ?
I have less than least earnings on hub pages in spite of publishing 198 hubs and more than 90 percent of these hubs are featured. I want to know as to how I can draw the attention of the readers for earning purpose ?
Your content is mostly creative and has very bad titles. This lowers your chances of getting traffic or money.
Titles are the most important part of your content. If someone types in "By Chance" (one of your titles) into Google, there will be millions of results! The topic is saturated! You need to be more specific in your titles.
@aupadhyay, congratulations on having published so many hubs. However, most of your hubs would fall in the creative category. Search Engines won't help you almost all of the time. Also, like the other user said, the titles are too generic or ambiguous. Either you make your future content more specific and keep an eye on the SEO or you can try self promotion through facebook and twitter.
Create a poems page on facebook and share your poems. If you feel too shy to share it with your real friends, you can create a new fb profile from bottom up which centers around say poems or some other more specific niche. Then post and repost. Make a website (if you don't want to spend any money, use Blogger.com it will be very good for your purpose). Post some content there. Put some subtle ads on your sites if you wish. Link your hubpages, website and facebook with each other, self promote everywhere. On your site you can also add a subscription box to let your users know when you post new content.
Shorten your hubpages url and tweet on twitter, you can also add random, unknown people and many people will follow you back. Search for related hashtags, like if you are writing about love, I think there must be something like #love or #lovehurts on twitter, use that, post your links and you will get some small short term audience.
Join a few forums and converse there. Add your links in sigs, when you post each time your sigs will be displayed.
Join pinterest. Find catchy photos for your site from flickr or google and just pin them and learn something about pinterest so that you can keep pinning repinning etc. Some residual traffic will come from there. Pinterest is said to be a women's site, so use it only for topics you think will attract women.
Not ranking in search engines is not the end of the world, but you will have to work to sell your product, either make it SE friendly or promote the hell out of it (or for starters, at least promote it some).
Sorry for the long answer. But there are no shortcuts!!

I have read everything I can, mostly through HP, about referral trackers and how to set them up but I still am struggling with this. Is there a "Referral Tracker for Dummies". I have no previous knowledge of this and I would love a step by step instruction guide. A lot of the instructions...

Does anyone know if referral trackers at HubPages work with Pinterest? I posted a number of pictures on Pinterest with links with referral trackers to Hubs, but haven't seen anything from it. Any tips on getting interest on Pinterest? Thanks.

Referral Trackers - Why does my traffic to hubs say zero?I always use the link at the bottom of the page and attach a tracker code when I share others pages; which I do share on my social media accounts often. However, it says that I have zero traffic to hubs in my referral tracker page. Is that...

I have not learned what referral trackers are for? Can someone please point me to a forum post that talks about this? Or if there is no historical post about this can someone tell me what this is and how does it benefit a hubber? I am asked to create one but I don't know how to do that and what to...
