I'm having trouble fully grasping how to use referral trackers. I've read a great hub which explains all BUT find myself going round in circles. Where exactly do I paste the URL of a great hub (after clicking on Link to this page)and what do I do with the referral tracker. Pardon my idiot's level of understanding but a real simple explanation would be appreciated.
If I want to paste the HTML for widget purposes I copy HTML then paste it where? In the URL of my profile page? Sorry I am so dumb.
Hi chef -
for the tracker url: you can use that as a cut and paste link onto any page that allows it. You can use it in blogs, email, facebook, twitter and so on. You could use it on your profile too but I believe profiles will be updated soon and it may not show up.
As for the widget. You would cut and paste that code into a blog or website. You need to be sure you are in the html section when pasting. Widgets won't work on you HubPages profile page. Widgets are for off site pages.
I hope that helps.

Referral Trackers: 101 signups and 41 hubs.So interesting and encouraging to see some of the HubPages newbies on my referral trackers from different countries get established to write good hubs. I'm happy!

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,...
