    What's the average seems 0/1000 views is pretty low but maybe it's alot less according to my stats ,any one have a better figure to use as an average. Yes it varies time of year day etc and where it was listed but does the tracker even work ? Batting 0/1000 ? Thanks

    One of mine has 67 out of 98000 views.

    Another has about 78 out of 3300.

    One is very focussed on gaining referrals, then other is focused on gaining 10% of page impressions.

      Thanks I guess that helps the one is 1 for every 1462 views the other is 1  for every 42 views not bad maybe I don't fully understand the tracker because I have 4 trackers, some to sign up page some to profile some to a specific hub but I thought either way the tracker would go to me if they signed up and isn't referal the same as 10. % of impressions?

      Sorry about spelling errors typing from my iPhone ATM

    Like most things online, it matters in the context in which its used.

    If you expect sign ups or more signs up then the link would have to be on a page or hub that had non-hubbers who were also writers or interested in making money online

      This has already been done half the views are from outside links I guess once they get to here they change their mind. Or cookies get lost ? Not a big deal . But I think many others are confused about it also.

    What sunforged said is vert true.

    I found a nice method is that you can placed the link on certain high hits hubs to increase the chance. However, it is all luck though.

    I have a couple of friends who have signed up.   But instead of using my tracker, they just went to hubpages.com, and then signed up as new users.   

    One of them is doing very well, but not benefiting me at all....I cuss every time I see her.   

    My ratio is currently 2 for 367 on one.  That one might be my gravy train.   One can only hope.

    Check out some of darkside's hubs on the topic.

    Trackers can be used two ways:
    -To refer new users (you get 10% of impressions from their hubs)
    -To link to another hubber's hub (I believe you get either 9 or 12% of impressions from people you send there.)

    I send nearly every (attempted referral) link back  to a page I wrote about how hubpages works. This way they can read all the information they want on the topic and if they wish, follow a join link tracker from there.

      Ok that clears somethings up it just seemed like a really high number of increasing hits with no sign up I also just read a hub from  Jimmy the Jock that made some sense. Thanks WryLilt for explaining tHe difference in refferals links that I finally understand.  The links I'm refering to are outside of hubpages linking in

    When I link to my own hubs, and other peoples, I use a tracker.

    When appropriate and I feel the need to direct people to sign up to HubPages, I use a tracker.

    When publishing blog posts, lenses, or links from Facebook status updates with a link to a hub (mine or anyone elses) I use a tracker.

    I don't worry about how many people sign up, I don't worry about how many sign ups end up publishing, and I don't worry about how much traffic those hubs get... but the numbers climb.

    3726 referrals
    6840 hubs
    5881934 visitors

      Yeeow! Nice job.

      You're probably earning more off your referrals than I am off my hubs!
