I am having a problem with adding URL Trackers. I have read answers about this from other peoples problems and reading hubs telling me what to do, and I still cannot do it.
I put in the whole URL in a text caspule, I then add my provided or my own made up URL Tracker, before the word hub, and after http://hubpages.com
Then when I have finished editing and published my hub, I click on the link to test it, and it takes me to a page that says my page cannot be found and that the author ( me ) may of deleted it.
Can some tell me what I am doing wrong, I have only been trying to do this for two weeks and it is getting on my nerves so much that my computor has nearly gone through the ewindow three times.
Very frustrated computor throwing person
Your URL tracker must come between two backslashes. Maybe that is the problem. It should look like this:

wahm1 is a URL tracker code that I created.
You have to put the _ in front of it and between two backslashes /.
I have a hub on trackers called "How do referrals work on Hubpages" I think you may find useful.
Once you get your head round it trackers are quite easy, once you set them up.
Take your link e.g. hubpages.com/_YOURTRACKER/restofaddress and that is it!
Edit: restofaddress just means the URL! You don't add that.

It used to be, as I learned and understood it over a couple of years ago, that referral trackers had two uses. One was for when you convince someone to become a hubber. When you email them the link to use to sign up, you include your referral tracker at its correct place in the link, and if the...
