    Hi there, I can't find it anywhere, is there a referral scheme for HubPages, you know something like if I get someone else to join there is a reward or incentive?  And if so how do I go about registering for it?
    Cheers Annie

              I haven't succeeded yet - but I will work on it - how hard can it be???
              do I have to make up another token number or do I use the one listed by HubPages?

                You do not need to create a new tracker.

                Website Examiner is correct, and her second link gives good instructions. Sometimes more than one tutorial helps, so...

                When I helped PegCole17 with this, she was so thankful that she wrote a hub about it that now scores 99 and has at least 149 comments: http://hubpages.com/hub/Creating-Sign-U … -Your-Hubs

    I've done that and can see the referral page views growing, but is there any way to verify that it is generating revenue?

      Also good point - I have thousands of views through referral links but I'm not sure that they have earned me a penny so far...

    My wife says that there was another incentive referral program in place when she joined 10 months ago. Something like HP giving $50 if you got someone to join. Has anyone else heard of this? It doesn't seem to exist currently.

      Not that I am aware of. The only site that I know that offers a $50.00 reward is Examiner.

      You have a great wife, no doubt. Is she a native English understanding person, BTW?

        Pure-bred American (whatever that means roll ) linguist with all degrees from the U.S. She accompanied me when we worked in Asia for about 20+ years, so is fluent in two other languages as well. cool I feel uncomfortable about giving her username here--we have distinct personae in distinct niches--but there are enough breadcrumbs if you want to connect the dots. wink
