      When you refer someone to HubPages through one of your trackers, you get your affiliate ID rotated into 10% of their impressions, so any revenue you get from them will be paid out with your own earnings, from each respective affiliate program.

        Hi

        Thanks for the reply

        Is there any way to track this ?


        Also, does it expire ? Or is it 10% for as long as they have an account?

          You can see how many users you've signed up, and how many hubs they've created and hubviews they've gotten under the "URL Trackers" section of the "my account" page.  There isn't a way to see the exact earnings generated.



          You get 10% of impressions for as long as the account exists.

    Hi users and friends i am again back as a new member but i have lots of views for you topic.Maybe you've even set up a site yourself, only to find that after buying the domain, a few bucks a month in hosting, software or a web designer to design your site, etc., that the piddly affiliate fees hardly even covered your cost. Well, here's the hype-free way to really make money with an Amazon.com affiliate site.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll try adding my Amazon ID. I added my Konetera ID and it shows 0 impressions all week, I guess I will have more luck with the others.

    Thanks

      It's hard to make money when you have no hubs big_smile

    You guys should actually write something worthwhile then you can start worrying about revenue!

    What? So I need my own hubs to make revenue? I referred a few people who have set up 6 hubs so far. Why do I need to write something to make affiliate revenue?

      How many people do you think you'll need to refer and how many hubs published to make say about... $3 a day?

      I agree with Darkside. Most hubbers might make $3 per month so your 10% of six hubbers works out at $1.80 per month.

      Thats really not a successful affiliate program.

      You don't need hubs to make affiliate revenue.  We tell authors that they can expect to make $2-6 for every thousand views their hubs get.  That means you can expect to make about 1/6th of that (you get 10%, they get 60%) which means from $0.33 to $1 for every 1000 hub views of people that sign up through your tracker.   Refer some very successful authors and you could make a reasonable amount -- it's all about traffic.

        That statistic is actually pretty close to how my hubs are performing so far.  I just reached 1,173 pageviews and I have earned $4.16. smile

    Thanks for the info.

    I refer about 2-3 new people per day though. 10% is pretty small however, you're right.

    I've not heard of anyone making money purely from referrals without Hubs.  All my referrals come from people who've read my Hubs and then chose to sign up or people who follow links from my HubPages. 

    I'd have thought you'd do better if you wrote a few hubs to give you credibility and also give you oportunities to link to other hubs.  Would you be more likely to buy a Ford from a saleman who drove a Toyota or a another Ford?

    The reason I don't write here and just refer people is that I am a blogger. Is there any way I can use hub pages *with* my blog?

      Hey Alex!

      There are definitely ways that you can use the two together.

      What do you blog about and what blogging platform are you currently using?

    Im using WordPress and I blog about webmaster topics. How can I combine Hub Pages with my blog?

    Mine is between $2 and $3.  I think it is at the low end because around 50% of my traffic is still coming from HubPages rather than search engines (much lower click rate from Hubbers)
