    I am relatively new here, have written a few hubs, and am just starting to look at the referral program.  I have read a lot of the very informative posts in the forum regarding the topic.  I was wondering if there are any thoughts on the best page to link potential referrals to?  Do you use the new user sign up page, the hub home pages, the hub tours, perhaps a hub of your own?

    Any advice is appreciated!

    Opinions vary…smile

    Here are mine:

    If you have already made your own sales pitch, then link directly to the signup page.

    If it’s a would-you-like-to-know-more or just a single-sentence link, then link to the HP homepage.

    I think linking to your own hub would be the best endorsement. You will be giving a personal recommendation, and it doesn't get much stronger than that.

    I too am interested in the referral program and I created my own, why should you sign up with hubpages, hub.

    Good luck!

    I send them right to the signup page. Why send them on any detours? smile

    I think the question might not be where to send them, but where to send them there from. So, granted that the hubpages referral page is the destination, where will they start out? Your profile page? A special hub about how great it is to be on Hubpages? Or maybe a link from each and every one of your hubs, no matter what it is about?

      I agree, and I think that is what I was trying to get at.  Basically I read your response as saying do not send the referral link to the sign up page.  The common formula is 1. provide potential referral with a hubpages link - 2. potential referral clicks on link and views information - 3. potential referral becomes an actual referral.  Linking to the right page in step 2 is so important. 

      I appreciate all the comments and really think this is a very productive discussion!  Keep it going!

      Personally, I agree with paradigmsearch, but the question is do we do a sales page/speil before we get them to Hubpages or do we wait til we get them on Hubpages to really push the sale?  I think it is best to get them on Hubpages asap and get that cookie in there, plant a seed, let it grow!

    The whole point of the tracker is that you get a referral link that doubles as a dofollow link so I always just link to my profile page.
