After being here over a year I still cant figure out how to put a link on my profile to sign up to hubpages. Can someone explain this in detail... Please....
You have to use the URL tracker that is listed when you look at your account. There are directions on how to apply it as a link. I hope that helps.
Why doesn't HubPages automatically generate an affiliate link with each hub? Everyone seems to struggle with making their own. I know lots of mine are wrong. Wikinut just provides you with a link.
To place a tracker in any hubpages address, simply add an underscore (_) then your tracker name. For this example we'll use _kmack
The best page to send them to is the sign up page:
So we make it:
FOR MORE INFO: Darkside's hub http://hubpages.com/hub/tracking
To create a hyperlink:
Edit your profile, highlight the word you want to make a hyperlink, then click the chain icon. In the window that pops up, put the URL listed above, but with your own tracker. Then click ok.
Yeah that is better than what I told you....go by her response:) I hardly use it.
Might be a good idea to
My referrals have written over 200 hubs to date...
I have had no one sign up under my URL trackers....but then again I don't have a link to sign up for hubpages on my profile...is that what you do WryLitt?
You already got many answers. I dont think I need to tell you anything more.
also here's a forum post http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/50957?p … ost1167714
people do sign up with your profile page, so it's worth it.
good luck. you'll get it.
Another way (if not already mentioned):
1. Go to the page you want to link to.
2. Click the “link to this page” at bottom of screen.
3. Select tracker.
4. Click the created link to highlight it.
5. Give it the ctrl-C to copy.
6. Proceed to edit profile.
7. Click where you want it to go.
8. Give it the ctrl-V to paste.
9. Fiddle around with it until you figure out how to edit it.
Ok i got that part but how to I have them sign up. It looks like its staying on my profile page...
hey, looks right to me. It told me I had to sign out to make a new account. cool!!
Yep, that's right. That will work.
And as WryLilt has suggested, use it every time you link to one of your hubs.
You might also refer to the video tutorial here: http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/url- … e-program/
Once you're familiar with the URL tracker system, it's easy to put a link to that in your profile
I think you can read many hubs on this topic how to use referral tracker.

I understand that if someone visits one of my hubs and I have a link to where they can sign up and start writing that I'll get paid for it too.My question is how do I create this link? I've read the FAQ and I'm still soooo confused it isn't even funny.

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,...

Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one of my hubs to someone else's via a traffic tracker, again, it does me no good,...
