Writing Online - How to get Followers and Comments

I have read so many questions on how to get more fans and comments and even get emails about it, but this is the first one that has been posted on my Profile, requesting an answer.

 

Only recently, Hubpages changed Fans to Followers but it is similar in meaning. So without much further Ado, some tips on getting more fans/followers and comments are:

a) Taking an interest in other people’s Hubs or Articles. After reading, leave comments. Maybe, how you felt about it or something you want to share relating to it. In most Cases, the author will return the compliment by visiting your profile and reading your articles. They might even decide to Fan you if they like your Hubs.

*

b) Visit Forums – Forums is an interactive place on Hubpages. Click Here – Forums. I put the link there because when I joined HP, it took me a couple of weeks to know that a place called Forums existed. It’s a very interesting place where Hubbers interact and you will start to get a feel of people. Well, their personalities. As people get to know you, they would check out your profile and Hubs.

*

c) Write Good Content/Interesting Hubs – This could draw interest to your Hubs and people might fan you, so that when you publish again, they would be notified via email and they can check out your new Hub.

*

d) Post questions in the Q & A Session of Hubpages and if you don't want to, answer any of the questions there. I assure you, that you will find a question you can relate to. You can answer by just writing a few lines or by creating a Hub. I make a habit of checking out profiles and reading Hubs of people who take time to answer any questions I post there. I'm sure there are others who do the same.

*

e) If you like people fan them too. (sometimes, just reading someone’s profile is inspiring). You could fan them. I can’t guarantee they’ll fan you back but the chances are very likely. However, avoid Fanning sprees – I’ll cover this later.

So the key is – Interaction.

*

One excited Fan coming your way.....

Try to avoid:

  • Fanning someone and requesting them to fan you back.
  • Fanning sprees – Fanning one Hubber per minute. So, in a space of 15 minutes, you've fanned approx 15 - 20 Hubbers in a row, non-stop. (Some people don’t realise that it shows on their Hubtivity).

I'm not saying DON'T, but this has been discussed in Forums and it isn't appealing.

*                                          *                                                  *

Finally……

As your fan base grows, you would have to read more Hubs in a day. When you publish Hubs, your fans take time to read them and comment and it’s nice if you return the compliment when they also publish Hubs. This brings me to the next point.

Click on Edit Profile and ensure on Email me when Authors I’m following publish - You have it selected as Daily Digest or Immediately. (See mine below)

I would appreciate other people’s tips on getting fans and comments, to share with readers. Meanwhile, may I use this opportunity to thank all my lovely Fans and send them lots of Hublove. Thank you.

Update...

P/s - I would like to add these helpful comments posted by Hubbers in response to the Hub. Thanks Mike and Dohn.

“If I were to add anything, I would suggest a response to a comment left on your hubs, even if it is just to say thanks for reading. There are some folks who will leave a comment and never return, of course, but others do return to see if their remarks were noticed, and how the writer responded to them”. Mike Lickteig

“I would add however, that "Fanning Sprees" also hurts your hubber score as well. One other thing that I would make mention of is to write good quality content. I sometimes see hubs that look more like blogs, like 250-300 word variety.” Dohn121

This is good advice. The forums are good but there are too many people there that seem to do anything to get noticed. They seem to specialize in person attacks and that's not my style. I stopped going to the forums months ago.

Thanks again

I feel your hublove Lady_E. You've been one of the firsts hubbers to fan/follow me (Kirstenblog is the top responsible for me keeping hubbing :)) and I've learned a lot from you; and you are alway there with an advice or a "push".

I've been quite lucky as I've read many good hubs full of advices from the beginning, a lot from you:), and you are 100% right. Trying to write interesting hubs and commenting "well" is the way to go. That's how I have 94 great followers. Not all will give the favor back, some hubbers are too "important" for that, some even don't bother to answer to comments on their own hubs, but as you say a lot will do. And this in my opinion makes the difference between great hubbers and those who are not so great, without regards to the hubscore.

You definitely deserve yours, not only for the quality of your hubs but also for the help you give.

Thanks, 1000 times.

This Hub is full of "Sound" advice to help anyone get more "Fans/Followers" to visit your articles on a regular basis. I practice all these tips on a regular basis to help increase my readership. The forums do get a bit "Nasty" toward fellow Hubbers at times, so I avoid those type interactions, but by placing interesting topics on the forums in different catagories helps you to not only interact, but it gives you an opportunity find out what the most popular topics are to help you create interesting Hubs. Great Hub... I give it Two Thumbs Up !!!

** Thanks Vladimir - I actually included Hublove in the original title but thought people might find it too soppy and removed it. Thanks for your comments.

** Hi Pete, I think it's nice to pop into Forums now and then. It's the religious postings that antagonize people. There are however other interesting posts and very nice Hubbers there. Also, HP now Ban anyone who is being a pain in the ?? for 3 days. Nice to read from you.

** Manly man, interesting comments, don't quite know how to take them. I put in a lot of effort in writing on HP and want to believe that most people Fan me because of good content. Nice Avatar, you’ve got too. Thanks for stopping.

** Hello Tony, I used to see you in Forums and Pete M and hope you visit again. My time in Forums has reduced too because of Writing on other sites, but I do pop in there, every so often. I enjoy the interaction. Cheers.

** Cheers Hynodude for your kind / encouraging comments and keep up your good work. It’s always nice to see your Hub featured on the Home page. From your Hubs, I believe you will continue to be an inspiration to many and not just on Hubpages. Regards.

** Hello Steppeno, thanks for your comments and for hi-lighting the positives of Forum activity. Best Wishes.

Lady_E, your advice is very sound, as always. I echo the sentiments about "mass" following. If I go back to the follower's profile and see he/she has become a follower of 20 people in the last half hour, I know it had nothing to do with my writing.

If I were to add anything, I would suggest a response to a comment left on your hubs, even if it is just to say thanks for reading. There are some folks who will leave a comment and never return, of course, but others do return to see if their remarks were noticed, and how the writer responded to them.

This was nicely done (as your work always is). Thanks for sharing.

I don't think I could've written this hub better, Lady_E. You pointed out all the important points. I would add however, that "Fanning Sprees" also hurts your hubber score as well. One other thing that I would make mention of is to write good quality content. I sometimes see hubs that look more like blogs, like 250-300 word variety and am not impressed!

You always give such good advice, thank you.

Excellent Hub. WE really like receiving comments, so work on the assumption that others do too.

When we join a Fan Club we try to leave a message explaining why we are joining, usually referring to a Hub that we have enjoyed reading. We agree it is sort of tacky to ask for others to join our Fan Club.

Thanks for another good Hub.

** Hello, hello - Hi Hi. :) Even if you pop into Forums 2 times a week it's helpful. Sometimes there's useful info too. E.g I only got to know about Nanowrimo via Forums. (A Novel you write in November) More info on internet - I can feel your puzzled look. lol. Thanks for stopping.

** Cheers Sabrelade, lovely to hear from you again. :)

** Hi Dohn - I didn't know Fanning sprees affected Hubscore. Anyway, I have included your comments in the Hub, so people are aware. Thanks a lot. I've noticed for your Story, Chapter 16 is out - looking forward to reading it. Thanks for stopping.

** Hello, the lovely 2Patricia's - thanks so much for your comments. Actually, sometimes I Fan back when requested, especially if I have a big slice of chocolate cake by the computer. That puts me in a nice, receptive mood. Nice to read from you.

** Thanks Kelly, glad you found it useful. Best Wishes.

great advice lady_E. Though we here in hubpages live like a virtual community,we all have or feel some kind of affinity to each other, that makes us to respond well to our fans.Sometimes when I get very busy, even don't have enough time to read or visit any hubs, I really feel bad-its almost like real world commitment to our friends.I am glad you wrote this wonderful revealing hub.

Unchained Grace profile image

Unchained Grace 6 years ago from Baltimore, MD

When I first showed up on Hub Pages, I referred to it as my "Escape From Facebook." I felt constrained in a few areas there though it does make a nice avenue for Hub Promotions as I have recently noticed I'm pulling more hits off my Facebook Profile.

I do appreciate the community aspect here. I'm pretty much into my little niche here and I'm happy just where I am.

There is one thing I need to emphasize. From the very beginning, I am humbly grateful for each and every comment, fanmail and follower. It means, to me, somebody somewhere likes what I write. Personally, I believe one of the biggest mistakes one could make would be to start believing one is "God's Gift to HubPages" and take for granted those comments, fanmails and followers. I feel a responsibility to each and every one in terms of writing solid content and visiting as many as humanly posible while still running a full-time ministry. Thank you Lady_E for a great Hub!

Anybody wanna start a Rubber Chicken Farm?


Lady_E profile image

Lady_E 6 years ago from London, UK Author

** Thanks MoneyGlitch for your encouraging comments.

** I am very touched by your comments, Unchained Grace. I think we all help/encourage one another in HP. If I didn't have people who "held my hand" here when I started, I doubt I would have stayed so long. There are still so many I look up to who are like Mentors to me.

They say life is a learning Process.

Wishing you success on HP.

Ps. Not sure what a Rubber Chicken Farm is though.....

Lady_E-I thoroughly enjoyed this Hub! In my 8 months here on HP, I have noticed that some folks tend toward those 'fanning sprees' you speak of, so rather than immediately fanning them back, I check out their profile now to make sure that's not the case.

In your case, though, I think I'm quite safe!

equealla 6 years ago from Pretoria, South Africa

I feel a kind of "sadness" if I go back to a comment I've made, and the author did not respond. That does not happen frequently. Perhaps they do not know yet that they are allowed to interact. Perhaps they think this space is for the reader only.

Meantime for me, I cannot wait to see what people want to say to me about my topic. Sometimes I write back in too many words. But I am a chatterbox

Thanks for the hub. If the brand new hubbers could only read this before they begin, it will help them a lot.


Lady_E profile image

Lady_E 6 years ago from London, UK Author

Hi Equealla

P/s don't feel sad about that. It took me about 2 or 3 months into Hubpages to realise that people responded to comments. I thought comments box were just for other people. So, there might be people who still feel the same, hence don't reply to your comment even though they would be happy you took time to read their Hub.

Lol, you and I are alike. I comment as if I am chatting. Don't you worry. As long as Hubpages doesn't limit the words we can type in - we're cool.

Thanks for stopping and I am confident you will enjoy HP. :)

Anaya M. Baker 6 years ago from North Carolina

Wow, thanks for the info! I'm guilty of fanning sprees, not to try to boost my followers, I've got a fantastic and loyal following of some really neat folks, but just because hubpages makes it too easy. Whenever I follow someone and get taken to the page of people they follow, I usually click on one of the profiles that look interesting. If I like their bio or articles, I follow, which leads to another list of hubbers, and chances are another follow. I'll do this for five or ten minutes, especially when I'm procrastinating. I'll also follow everyone who participated in a really good discussion too. Guess I should be more careful, I didn't realize it penalizes hubscores and looks spammy!
