Can we get an Email when somebody follows one of our URL trackers to sign up for HubPages? Or, reorganize the URL trackers page from my account to make it easy to spot a newbie?
Just started paying attention to my old URL trackers. Found that 183 people had signed up to HubPages though my URL trackers. While there are a few Hubs, and an active Hubber, most never created a Hub, or just did one or two beginer Hubs.
Occurs to me that if I got an Email when they signed up, I could follow them, offer encouragement through comments etc. It's in my interests to mentor them, but the current display doesn't lend itself to quickly finding newbies, especially if you have a bunch of URL trackers.
Jstankevicz, yes I totally agree with you. Hubpages should send a email when their is a signup using URL trackers. Once I have send a request to them. But I do not know is it possible or not. But it is very helpful, I encouraged one hubber who signed using my URL tracker and she now wrote more than 100 hubs.
You can click on the "Signup Date" heading and they'll appear in date order. It's just a case of popping in every now and then to check.
I have the same experience as you, the vast majority of my sign-ups never write a Hub. I think that's because some people think they have to sign up just to leave a comment. Emailing them doesn't make much difference.
Marisa, right you are, they can be sorted. My problem is I have a number of trackers going, and each would have to be opened before I can sort. Being a lazy sod, I thought a notification would be helpful. Don't know if it's even feasible for Hub-grammers to implement.
Yes this would be very helpful. If this uses PHP in a LAMP setup like I suspect it would be fairly easy to setup...
That would be good. With the ability to turn it off too.
A list of the 50 most recent referrals would be good too, no matter what tracker they used to sign up (though the details of the tracker could be displayed in a column).
Actually, if all referrals were listed in one table, instead of being split up into trackers, I think that would answer Jstankevicz's needs - he's quite happy to go and check his trackers now and then, but finds it irritating to have to open each tracker individually.
For me, the ideal would be for all referrals to be listed in one list. Then have a table which shows the number of people signed up under each tracker.
I totally agree with you! We do need a way to make the new hubbers (that join up under our trackers) feel welcomed and mentor them to make our Hubpages even better. That is an awesome idea!

I've had a few people sign up under my trackers when I send out emails of my hubs, but I was wondering what some of the rest of you have done as far as setting up a more unique way to have friends and family sign up here at hubpages? For some strange reason I don't think my profile link for sign...

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...

Specifically -- how do we invite prospective hubbers to sign up (to our credit, if possible). Is there some kind of clicker or button or other sign up tool that credits us as a referral? I thought there was...

I recently made another hub account, but I looked under my URL trackers and it said I signed up under my name.(this account) How is this possible? Am I going to penalized?

Referral Trackers: 101 signups and 41 hubs.So interesting and encouraging to see some of the HubPages newbies on my referral trackers from different countries get established to write good hubs. I'm happy!
