OK, so what's the best way to build a fan base on HubPages?
I try to follow the Twitter model and become fans of others, but I don't want to be obnoxious about it. Perhaps it's too late for that anyway since I'm posting this.
Anyone? Beuller? Beuller?
Comment, get involved and read other hubs, become there fan as well. But whatever you do, do not inundate HP with fanning everyone as it is a naughty thing to do.
Im not 100 percent sure but to me I feel the best way is to only add fans that you enjoy reading the stuff they are writing, then you write good content yourself. get involved in everything you can within HubPages and eventually the fans will start rolling in. Thats actually one of the reasons I dont like twitter because so many people add you for the wrong reasons.
Writing great content is the best way to get fans. I really don't think it is important to hang out on the forums. I was absent from the forums for months and my fan club still continued to grow.
All of the above and write quality articles.
The fanning everyone thing does not work very well in my opinion. I won't even read anything written by someone who became my and thirty other people's fan in the last one minute. I think other people are starting to be annoyed by it as well.
Stay involved on the forums. Offer advice, seek advice, have some fun. People will get to know your personality and if they like, become your fan. It's not a sure shot but I think its been working for me.
Wow, you guys are fast!
Richard,JamaGenee, BabeDoll, bgpappa, AEvans --- Thank you all. I really appreciate the input. I'm enjoying HubPages and want to get the most out of it.
Personally, I just participate on the forums, write what I know well and enjoy sharing, and read hubs I'm interested in. I haven't become the fans of many people yet, they really have to stand out to me in a way that tells me I'm going to want to read more from them. Sure, I don't get as many fans as fast as some people here, but I thoroughly enjoy checking hubtivity and get some great ideas from what my favorite authors are writing on here.

What if you just go down the list of all hubbers and automatically fan everyone. I know in a lot of sites this is considered a negative thing to do and it will drop your reputation or whatever. ...

In my relatively short time on HubPages, I have come across Hubbers who seem to do nothing but become fans. Are these spammers, or am I way off base?

How does someone get 100 plus fans in a short period of time? I like having fans but I wonder what it means when a hubber adds hundreds of fans in only one day or less? You know what I mean you see you have a new...
