If I go to the Link to this page at the bottom of my hub, and copy the link, when I go to share --> stumbleupon then it links back to the Link to this page and not to the hub.
If I do the share --> stumbleupon then it links ago but without the tracker url and I get no credit for the impressions.
Help please !
It has been suggested by at least one staff member of HubPages HQ to not use URL trackers when submitting hubs to social bookmarking sites.
Is it bad that I've already made a link like this? For some reason it worked when I tried.
It would depend where.
If it's once, don't sweat it.
The problem is if people start cross promoting the same hub, and there's multiple URL's all leading to the same destination. That's when it's going to get messy.
Also some sites need the URL to resolve properly. So if the destination isn't the URL being submitted, they're not allowed.
You will get credit for Adsense impressions on your Hub no matter where the traffic comes from.
The URL tracker is just to get credit for new Hubbers who sign up after being invited to HubPages by you.
Consider adding your referral links anywhere you can, not in a spammy way, just where you can direct others to your hub pages, maybe you are part of groups at yahoo or google, place them there, or maybe you have a blog about your hubs subject, place them there, the more you add them to relevant content and relevant sites the better for you.

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...

Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one of my hubs to someone else's via a traffic tracker, again, it does me no good,...

So yesterday I decided to try and get my head round URL trackers. I must say there are some very helpful Hubs out there are also some good forum topics on the subject. I think I've pretty much got most of it sussed. A few things though that I didn't work out.If I was to place a...

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...

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...
