How much have they written, and how much traffic have they won?
104636 traffic to hubpages
That is only 2.46 hubpages per referral, but I cross my fingers that I find the next Mark Knowles someday.... I do have one that has published over 80 hubs in just 2 or 3 months with a decent hubber score... hopefully that rate will be maintained for a few years and then I can sit and twiddle my thumbs!
I'm averaging 2.04 hubpages per referral!
In my most recent hub (Trackers - Episode III) I have revealed my traffic stats for January over the last four years.
Here's my current stats:
9011651 traffic to hubpages
You must be about 6 months away from retirement then Darkside
By the way, there were thousands of Aussies in Vegas, apparently the exchange rate is incredible for you guys at the moment.... maybe you should take advantage of that whilst it lasts!
At least I got to console myself in the fact that, whilst our economy is f*cked, we did beat you at Cricket
Oh.... actually, that doesn't do your Amazon cheques too much good
I guess that only benefits Aussie travellers...
How do you know you didn't brush past me?
And I'm sure that's you working at my local pharmacy. I suspect you were researching a hub about Chemists.
Mid year I'm heading to South Africa with the wife for a holiday paid for with my HubPages Adsense earnings.
Because you blatently would have said hello!
As much as I would welcome the opportunity to live and work in Australia, I'm not sure that working in a pharmacy would be my career of choice!
Not that I would get a job in a pharmacy, seeing as I am a chain smoker! Not a great combination!
I just read your hub, good read, this one: http://hubpages.com/hub/trackers
Here are my stats:
443143 traffic to Hubs
Rarely look at them. I forget they're there - seems I have some active Hubbers - so thankyou to those that signed through me. Not sure if they make me anything but still, it's all good
Ever thought about giving it a go?
I'm not sure how much I make from them, but I estimate around $5-$10 per day from trackers and referrals... which is impressive over the course of a year.
It's a lottery though, can take 50 referrals to find a decent one who stays.
I have 5
One of them wrote 1 hub
It has received 112 views
3 of my 5 referrals seem to have signed up to make a comment or ask a question - they do so and never come back.
This is not a particularly lucrative market for me. I don't think I'll get rich on referrals any time soon.
geez, those are some impressive stats. ryan and darkside, do you have specific sign up links on all of your hubs, or do you simply use trackers in your links?
I've got 8 referrals who have written 30 hubs with total traffic views of 2699.
I have... 2.
They have collectively published 0 hubs.
One of them DID add a profile pic though, so there's something.
Still very much choking on Ryankett's and Darkside's dust!
Zero. But if you tell me it's a money maker. I'll work on my guru hubs.
I can't confirm that, not yet at least. Perhaps Darkside can though?
You would be surprised at how many signups you can get by just using referral trackers in your Hubpages profile(s) and/or a signup invitation in your Hubpages profile.
That first line of my profile has got me 20 referrals in a month, I can't see it doing any harm. I know that you don't like page leaks, but no harm in using trackers on the occassion that you are going to link anyway?
You can make $ with your referrals if they write decent hubs. You can start with inserting trackers on your profile page. So far, that's where most of mine have come from.
Great going Ryann. Hats Off to Darkside. I have two referrals with zero published hub. No idea if or where the third referral is coming from.
I forgot to post #'s.. nothing impressive like the guys!
traffic to hubs- 31482
DS, I threw you a shout out in my latest hub!
I have quite a few referrals on shetoldme, bestreviewer and Swom but only 1 on hubpages who is hubbing quite a lot, dunno how many revenue I get for them though.
Lol,I've all but given up having only had 3 referrals who never published any Hubs. I even emailed them to welcome them and let them know I was here to point them in the right direction to help get them started,but never received any replies.
I am still kind of new at HubPages. I have a tracker on my profile page, but no referrals yet. Should I put it in my hubs also? Any tips you can give me are greatly appreciated.
you can make different trackers for your hubs. I'm still going back in and making new ones or adding the HP tracker to links in my older hubs. you can check darkside's profile for his tracker related hubs.
kerry, I hear you on the drop down box, it's so much easier, but you can also still use it and simply insert the tracker to the URL.

I've always been pretty good about using referrals when linking to other people's hubs from mine, but going back through and adding referral links to all links to my own hubs is on my to-do list. I'm lazy and it's an extra step, so it's easier to just use the drop-down list or search, but man, when I think about how many more I could have had, I kick myself for not doing it from the start!
I have had a few sign up, but only one published a hub and they have done nothing since.
Another one tells me he has written several, but he has not published them. Why? He does not say.
I despair of ever seeing any fruit

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,...

I've had a few people sign up under my trackers when I send out emails of my hubs, but I was wondering what some of the rest of you have done as far as setting up a more unique way to have friends and family sign up here at hubpages? For some strange reason I don't think my profile link for sign...

Has anyone had great success with the URL Tracker and referrals? I just read what it was about and seems like a great way to provide incentive for other hubbers to promote other user's content. Does anyone use this strategy to make a lot of money?

I've read the FAQ, darkside's hubs, and several forum threads and didn't see an answer to this.If somebody lands on one of my hubs via a Google search, for example, and thinks "WTF is this cr*p? I could do better!" or (hopefully!) "Wow, this is so awesome - I want to join this site...

I wonder how many referrals the Hubbers have managed so far. I have only around 250 so far with a 1000 hubs published by them. Just curious.
by sunforged 11 years ago
There are tons of hubs on keyword selection and the various tools one could use to make the process easier.But, like most things 'net - they are mostly copies of copies of copies or poorly strewn together theories by intermediate writer-marketers ..So I ask... what was truly masterful, what made...
