What is a tracker code and how to create it? When I enter into the URL tracker under my account. I tried to create a new URL tracker but it prompt me to enter a tracking token and description. What do I need to enter in that? Thank you
you already have a default tracker. If you want to create a unique one you should follow these instruction http://hubpages.com/my/trackers# .
suppose you want to insert a tracker code "new" then your new tracker will look like these hubpages.com/_new/profile/saleheensblog
Yuou can use anything in place of "new" but no slash or space. number and letters are allowed.
I recommend Darkside's detailed hub the subject:
Here is my previous detailed forum post on how to create a link with URL tracker for sign-ups:
Thank you guys!! I think I finally figure out how to use the URL Trackers and create a link. PHEW!!!!
Sorry, your current link is wrong. It is simply a link back to the profile page itself. Please check up on the instructions and redo the link.
OK thanks for pointing out the mistake!! I have re-do it again and hopefully this time is correct.
WE - there's nothing wrong with directing new people to the tour page. There is a sign up link at the bottom of the page. I often use this page and I also use some others as well.
As far as I can tell, the link that Burningdesire has provided does not work. I get a "That page doesn't exist" warning.
With all due respect, I think the tour is not optimal, because some people will not make it to the sign-up link. What can go wrong usually does go wrong. So I stand by that the link should go directly to the sign-up page, which seems to be the more conventional choice.
You'd have to test it I guess to see what was optimal page to send new users to - have you? Conventional is not always best! Some people like to have a little info on what they are signing up to and so the tour page is great for that. You'll find that experienced hubbers use quite a range of pages to link to. Check out Mark Knowles profile and which page he directs new users to: http://hubpages.com/profile/Mark+Knowles
Hi thanks for replying I actually would like the tour pages part as maybe some people are not familiar with what hubpages is about so I decided to add that to the profile page and I have re-do again. I dont know why it says the page does not exist but I try again and it did direct to the tour page with the sign up. So I hope this time it is correct.
I appreciate your help. I actually wanted to have the tour page because if I send out to my friends most of them would not know what is hubpages so I choose the tour page to be in profile but I thought I did it right till you say that page doesnt exist. I went in and try and indeed it is so I re-do again and this time it prompt me to go to the tour page. So I hope this time it works. Thanks
Burningdesire, you are welcome. I do see your point and Susanna's point. Whatever works for you is wonderful. I did check your link, and certainly it appears to be working. Which is really quite marvelous. In fact, I cannot find enough good things to say about it!

Can someone explain the referral tracker to me? I went to that page on my account and found a code there I do not know anything about. I added a new tracker code, my own, but do not really know how this works.

Okay, I've been here for quite some time and done quite well but still don't understand a lot. I want to put in a referral thingy on my profile - one of those 'sign up for Hubpages here' referral trackers. I see where some people are signing up for shetoldme through me and would like to do it here,...
