This is where questions/answers and forum posts get confused. I shouldn't have asked this question here, unless one of you would find it inspiring enough to make a Hub out of it, and I guess that's what I was looking for.
I've often been at the 100 profile mark, who knows why? I don't publish a lot here, I don't even interact a lot here. So what does all that mean?
Flora, you've got a great view on this. (Whenever Chuck is at 100, he's also at the top of the food chain...that's so interesting.) And no, I'm not worried about any of it. It's just a question.
FCAussie, no I don't get a ton of viewers by being at 100, and I certainly don't get added traffic. What I get are a ton of followers who almost never again engage. Just because they follow me, am I supposed to follow them? Not. And as for making it to No. 1, I probably have one of the lowest earnings profiles on HP, and even if I made No.1 in the HP Hubbers tab, it would get me nothing in terms of dollars.
Thank you both for your answers to this question...I should have, really, put it out on a Forum post, but if it in any way inspires either of you to explore and write about your thoughts in a Hub or a forum post, this question would have more than met its mark. :)
