Ok, I don't think I did this right- I tried to put a HubPage banner on my Yuwie- I copied the code and then added a unique tracker url- but it's sending me right into my account from my Yuwie.
Can someone please help?
(BTW- cool that we can add a HubPages banner- don't know why I didn't do this before!)
That´s probably because you are login. Try to logout from hp and try again .
Yup you were right- I guess I did do it right- it's working OK now. Thanks!
I don't think your tracker is supposed to appear when it redirects to HubPages, but I do believe HubPages still records it. It if gets you to HubPages then I think it is working.
Thanks Peter- so I guess when I copy and pasted the banner into my Yuwie it already had my referral link in there?
(BTW everybody- these are nice banners to put on your sites for people to sign up under you- great referral tool)
It looks to me like you're missing the referral tracker. You need to add the thing in bold below to the HTML in the banner.

I'm sorry, I misunderstood. I though you were talking about the redirect to hubpages from the banner on your site. My apologies.

Do you still put a tracker link in your hubs?In all of my hubs I have a link in a blue box with a referral tracker with a heading offering to sign up with Hubpages to write articles. Is this still a good idea for new hubs since all the changes?

I've read the FAQ, darkside's hubs, and several forum threads and didn't see an answer to this.If somebody lands on one of my hubs via a Google search, for example, and thinks "WTF is this cr*p? I could do better!" or (hopefully!) "Wow, this is so awesome - I want to join this site...

How will the HubPages Referral Tracker work with the new HubPages Ad Program?
