I posted a question recently, on how to get more followers for my hubs. After all, we all want readers. I was wondering if any of you would like to share, how you get followers. What are some of your networking strategies, not trade secrets, but a few tips here and there would be nice.
If it is followers you want, you need to become part of the whole community and not restrict yourself primarily to the forums.
By reading and commenting on the works of other hubbers, you will get your presence here noticed. After people see you returning to their new hubs, and meet you on other hubs they will want to know more about you and will seek out your profile and read your hubs.
Without this level of activity on your part, I am afraid your search for followers will be fruitless.
Internetwriter, readers and followers are two different things.
I have over a thousand followers, but that's a drop in the ocean compared to the number of readers I have every day, who arrive via the search engines. They're my paying audience.
Having followers is good for the ego, because they're supposed to be other Hubbers who admire your writing (although I'm sure a huge chunk of my followers are people who joined in the hope I'd follow them back - which I didn't). But if you're here to make money by writing, chasing followers is a very non-productive way of using your time.
You're very right. You've got the top score as a hubber, so I know you are doing something or many things right. I would like more readers, thats why I'm striving for followers, that way they know if my hubs come out, it's kind of free publicity.
Good advice I do not do the follow me I will follow you thing at all. If you are looking to drive paying traffic to your hubs you need to get some ideas on how to market them, get them ranked fairly high in the search engines etc. I am still learning every day.
I also participate in the forums and comment on Hubs I like it helps to keep your score up, and that affects nofollow and dofollow tags.
Personally I have noticed two major jumps in followers on Hubpages, the first was when I published a community, non commercial hub a while back, with some helpful advice on it. The second was when I hit about 80 followers, for some reason it seems to attract more people to follow as well!
Also, forum participation, and helping other

There are hundreds of thousands of hubbers out there. Each one has his own agenda. I guess that mostly self promotion is a major concern for many. However, I've noticed that many do it in surrogate ways like inviting...

I managed to get almost half way there, but that's still a far cry from getting it done. I think I must've been crazy to think I could get it done at this time of year. I'll try it again after the holiday craziness is...
