I understand that if someone visits one of my hubs and I have a link to where they can sign up and start writing that I'll get paid for it too.
My question is how do I create this link? I've read the FAQ and I'm still soooo confused it isn't even funny.
OK-I think I've got it figured out... I did http:// hubpages.com/ MY REFERRAL NUMBER/ tour/ hubpages/
How can I see if i did this right??
Not quite. You should have an underscore right before your referral code. You can click the green help button on this page:
To test, try the link yourself. If you hit an error page, your link has a mistake in it. If it very quickly redirects to the same page without your referral tracker in it, then you've done it right.
Is this something you participate in yourself Jason. And do you have many people sign up via your link?
Jason is a staff member. However he does have a tracker on one of his profiles.
If you're looking for extra cash, referrals aren't the way to go. I have hundreds and probably less than 10% have ever published a hub, let alone more than 10. I only have one referral I'd count as "highly successful".
Thanks for the tip. This is a very useful forum. I am configuring my tracker just today.
I added in the underscore before my referral code and then tried the link and it took me right to the tour page... I just hope I'll capture any people who sign up. lol
Appreciate it MUCH!!
You can also check that your tracker is activating correctly by going to https://hubpages.com/tracker
I take it that once you set up a sign up link, then it will show up in the tracker page, is that correct? Or do you have to go in and set it up?
My tracker is active, but I can't post that bit of code as a hyperlink into my profile page. I'd like to know how to do this too!
Edit the profile, and remember to save the edits before exiting the screen.
1. Copy the sign-up URL that includes the tracker code
2. Type the text as you want it to appear (e.g. "Join HubPages here"). Highlight that.
3. Click on the chain-link icon
4. Paste in the sign-up URL in the box that appears
5. Click save.
My problem is with step 1. I can't find "the signup URL that includes the tracker code" to copy. Just the tracker code? Is there a format? Because inserting the tracker code into user/new isn't working.
Got it working. I got an error message initially because there was a wayward space in the URL where I had cut and pasted in the referral link. (Insert expletive). Now it works THANKS web examiner.

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...

How do I create the sign up referral tracker on my profile?I've been reading around in vain, Hubs & the forums, I've pretty much learned how to add the referrals on hubs and backlinking. Though I cant figure out how to get the referral working for my profile page to get a new user to sign...

Like referrals.1. Why insert an _referralcode into the URL. Couldn't you come up with a dynamic insertion solution? If an insertion was required, what's wrong with appending it at the end of the URL as in ?referrer=xyz? or would that make it too easy for hubbers?2. Why do pages like the Referrals...

How can I refer people to HubPages? Is it possible to get credit for a referral?
by kerryg 14 years ago
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...
