    can anybody tell me how the referral program actually works..on the help page they said once we refer any hubber we get 10% of their lifetime impressions ..does this 10% comes from that hubbers  share of 60% impressions(i.e hubber net share=60-10=50%)or from 40% share of hubpages impressions(i.e hubpages net share= 40-10=30%).... i want to refer some of my friends to hubpages so i have to explain them clearly how it actually works ..can any one from the hubpages clearly explain this??

    That 10% is not taken out from new huber's 60% share but from's 40% share. But your referral net share is not calculated by totalCPMX10%,  but TotalCPMX40%X10%. For instance, if a new huber generate 100 impressions, you will get 40X10%=4.

    I read this from somewhere among the help, but I can not find it anymore, It seems like this, but not sure.

    I am also a bit confused about how the referral works. My hub stats give an estimate of earnings for each url tracker I created. But my question is, where do I find the "real" earnings. Is it in my google adsense stats? If so, they don't seem to correspond at all with the real life stats on my google adsense. I have reviewed the FAQ but I am still not clear. Can someone explain?

    Here is the answer, I found it:

    Sometimes I have no click through but I have earnings in my adsense account, although as little as $0.03. I wonder if that 3 cents from the trackers.
