Can anyone tell me what percentage of signups they receive based on the traffic views of their referral trackers?
I've received over 355 traffic views from 6 different trackers, but not one signup. I usually use the following HubPages page to promote new signups:
As a new HubPages user I have done extremly well with AdSense revenue, but I can't figure out why the signup campaigns aren't successful.
Is a 1% success ratio for every 100 viewers asking too much? Thanks in advance.
I have about 134 sign-ups and they have written 64 hubs. On every single one of my hubs (at the bottom of the article) I have a link that tells people if they would like to earn money writing they can do so by clicking the link. I think it's working quite well.
Really? I was considering this but then I found this in the learning center - http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/url- … -program/:
"As you share links with URL trackers, keep in mind that these are designed for bringing people to the site, not redirecting people who are already on the site. For this reason, you cannot share links with trackers in the forums or in the questions and answers section of the site, and in the future, we may not honor trackers embedded in hubs and profiles either."
So, I was wondering if it's even worth putting a link in our articles, though I've used the trackers in linking to my own hubs before I read this and I don't plan on going through all my hubs and changing the links.
Thank you Brie for the great advice. I will see if adding the referral trackers to at least one linked article in every HubPages hub makes a difference.
My results have been equally pathetic.
My guess is that the market is saturated. Anyone who wants to write already is.
Results will vary. And once you get past that you might find that for every 100 sign ups you might only have 1 that actually publishes a hub.
It's a numbers game.
Which requires patience on your part.
Just allow it to happen and don't be concerned with it. I stopped worrying about it (well I don't think I even started worrying) and I've slowly and steadily racked up a few thousand referrals.
The 'secret' to my success? I use trackers to link between related hubs. Whether it be mine or someone elses. Don't play the HubKarma game. Don't give your traffic away for free.
Thanks darkside. The poor conversion ratios still bother me, but I'll try to mimic your success by placing links between hubs.
My problem is that 33 people have signed up under me but only one has written any articles.
I keep meaning to increase my referral links, but never get around to it. I have had a couple of writers who have had success on Hubpages through my referral link, but I am much more successful with my own endeavours.
Well............ Let's Be Honest huh?
I find that it is highly insulting to have gone to all the trouble to have done the work to inspire the joiners.. to have a little 'secret' panel on the top right hand corner of your hub that says... Get Paid To Write! - and a link off to HP who feel absolutely No Obligation to disclose the sign up rate from our pages on a no share basis and absolutely no need to disclose the reasons Why that little 'secret' panel (which most would click out of curiosity) - why the panel in Invisible to Us via Our Browsers when we are logged in!!
I have No sign ups... after over 3600 'visits' in only 3 months. Before that I had not lodged trackers. So HP got 16 months of potential signups from my traffic!
I think it is an Insult to my Intelligence to expect me to believe that I have not inspired a single person to join here! So let's hope I'm mistaken - but I don't think so
At other sites (less frequented and populated) I have 'introduced' a large amount of new contributors....
But Hey.... I might just be Thick!!

I want to know where I can find the feed url and referral tracker. I have not been able to locate it since the layout of the website was changed.
