I am new here in HubPages. Just signed up for an account a few days ago and I barely got any followers. I would like to know some tips on how to increase my number of followers aside of course, from writing a great hub and following other hubbers.
First off, write great material that other Hubbers want more of, so they will follow you to make sure they don't miss anything. Next, be active in the forums and reading and commenting on other Hubs. It takes time. Be patient.
Yes, I do agree with you. I think I will start looking for hubs that are similar to my line of interests then I could comment on those hubs. Perhaps that will work. ^^ I may not be able to get a massive amount of followers within such a short period of time but at least my profile would look a lot more lively if it shows a decent number of followers. Thanks for suggesting that idea.
Participate intelligently in the forums, and make meaningful comments on other people's Hubs. That will impress other Hubbers and make them curious about your Hubs.
Following other Hubbers probably won't work. This is not Twitter - here, following someone is more like becoming a member of their fan club, so it doesn't necessarily mean that Hubber will follow you back.
I should point out that followers won't earn you money, they are just a nice motivating feature. You won't start making good income until 80% of your readers come from outside HubPages - and followers are all from inside HubPages. So ifyour goal is income, then you need to reach out to people outside HubPages to read your work.
Thanks for your suggestion. I am yet to explore the forums but for now, I just want to focus more on my hubs. I also am trying my best to make my hub titles more search-engine friendly so that I could attract readers outside HP.
By the way, you pointed out that having followers won't affect our earnings. Does that also mean that we are not allowed to click on the ads that are posted on other hubs?
Totally agreeing with Marisa, following others will send a wrong signal, therefore make sure you are participating in the community and uploading your profile with not loaded content but meaningful content.
It takes time! I have only been with them for about 6 months myself and I just decided that I am not so much concerned with followers as I am about writing great content because once the great content comes then the followers will come. If you follow me, I will follow you! Welcome to hubpages!
Won't we be banned if we use that "follow me, I follow you" method? That's coz I know a site that does ban its members for doing so. Anyways, I just checked your hubs and it seems like you're into recipes and lifestyle stuffs. Nice. ^^ You just gained your 29th follower.
There are many ways to get more followers. One of course is to write great content that people will be interested in reading and possibly following (both you and maybe even the hubs themselves). Since followers will generally be those already members of HubPages you should be active within the HubPages community both in the forums (commenting on posts and creating your own) and by reading and commenting on hubs written by others. Asking and answering questions can also help. Another thing you can do is follow other hubbers and they may follow you back. Also, ask those that have read your hub to share it with their hub followers by hitting the Hub Followers link directly on the hub page. You can share your hub with your hub followers in this way but HubPages is against us sharing our own hubs using this feature. At least it was in the past.
Being active in forums is important, but even more important is leaving insightful comments, well-organised and well-thought out comments leave a good impression on hubbers which might help in you accumulating more followers
There are lot of social media sites like stumbleupon, reddit, delicious, digg etc You can participate in Q&A like Quora, Yahoo answers, etc if you are using particular theme like magento then you can go with magentocommerce.com For wordpress then go for wordpress.org.
