I have opportunities to refer to some of my hubs here from my other web sites. I wonder whether or not it would be treated as external links by SE if I add my url tracker?

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...
