How do I get the referral link to work? Wanted to write a hub on hubpages but can not get the link to work.
HP is having power outage probs if you noticed the Announcements forum may be due to that and is only temporary. Hope that helps.
Lemme clear that up a little:
say you have a hub and the link is:
Create your tracker eg.badwriter
Now place the tracker in the link like this:
OOOHHH hubpages I love you guys!!! I was doing it wrong, thank you so so much!!
Trackers give ur 2 hours of pepole who click on your tracker. Making them sign-up is the best way to use trackers,you get their10% revenu for lifetime or sumthin!
Only partially true.
The first tracker will set a cookie for 30 days.
Any after that (within that 30 days) will give a 2 hour window of opportunity to the new tracker, before reverting to the old cookie.
What if one comes directly from a link with referral tracker? To the best of my knowledge it works for ever.
I don't understand your question. But I'll throw some answers at what I think you're asking.
* If a person signs up to HubPages via a tracker, then yes, that person is your referral forever.
* If a person doesn't sign up, the cookie only lasts 30 days. Providing the cookies aren't cleared for whatever reason.
* Without a referral tracker a person signing up won't be credited to anyone.

I want to know where I can find the feed url and referral tracker. I have not been able to locate it since the layout of the website was changed.

I spent some time searching and couldn't find the answer so...Does including a referral tracker destroy the value of the backlink? If so, is using a referral tracker for the interlinking between your hubs greater than the value the backlink will provide?

It used to be, as I learned and understood it over a couple of years ago, that referral trackers had two uses. One was for when you convince someone to become a hubber. When you email them the link to use to sign up, you include your referral tracker at its correct place in the link, and if the...
