Shazwellyn, you are welcome. Actually, using affiliate trackers requires a specific action, so I would be surprised if these were placed on a second account automatically. I too have a second account and have not experienced this problem.
Yes this is what has happened to me. I knew it was not allowed to use my own affiliate link so didn't. What I did was sign out of my account, Then click on the new user sign up. I signed up and posted 3 hubs. When I went back into my original account i checked my url trackers to see if I had got any sign ups and was shocked to see This account was there,
I am afraid to post any new hubs on this new account in case i have to delete the account. I have sent a request form to admin but no reply as yet.
If a person uses referral trackers to link one hub to another there's a chance they're going to end up clicking it sooner or later. I know I did to double check all my capstone hubs to make sure they were working.
Then the trackers cookie is placed for 30 days.
If a person signs up a new account it will automatically be credited.
It's not as if they're deliberately trying to game the system.
