So I had a thought - what happens if you refer someone, whether that be to a hub or who signs up and writes, but they have HP Ads activated but you don't? Does that mean you are pretty much giving up on the referral income because you can't take the HP Ads income? Or what would happen if you had filled out all the forms etc for HP Ads but you just hadn't activated them on your hubs, would you then get the revenue from referrals?
Since you need to submit tax information for HP Ads, you wouldn't be able to earn from your referrals unless you'd also activated the HP Ads, I believe.
The way it works with referrals is that your affiliate ID will be running inside the ads on a certain percentage of page impressions on another Hubber's hubs. For that to occur, your affiliate account has to be active.
What I have noticed is that, once your HP ad program is activated, it will continue to run on your referral's pages (with your own aff id on your share of impressions) even if you turn off HP Ads on your account.
Yes, on HubPages' share.
On yours, no, it won't.
Then, I owe you 12 cents Jason, because my reports says it did.
I just don't see how the affiliate ID for a non-active account could run on another Hubber's page impressions.
If not then, who benefits from your 10% share of impressions?
Your referral is entitled to 40%, HP is entitled to 30% and you are entitled to 10% of the pages’ impressions. Does it mean that in 10% of your referral pages’ views there will be no display of HP program ads, but instead will display your adsense ads?
I wonder from where you got this info. As per this (your post) the remaining 20% is unaccountable?
Referrer getting a share:
- Hubber being referred: 60%
- HubPages: 30%
- Referrer: 10%
Referrer not getting a share:
- Hubber being referred: 60%
- HubPages: 40%

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on Hubpages, you will not, I repeat, you will NOT get credit for clicks on your ads from...

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...

Hi,I have other accounts here (this is my forum account). So far in the two days of Amazon earnings reports in the new HubPages-linked Amazon products, I only see products listed that I directly linked to. Usually I earn commission from products that were bought using my affiliate links...

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,...
