    I have seen this a few times.How does someone after 1 week,get hundreds of followers with no hubs or profile?
    shouldn't there be some requirements first before getting followers?BTW;there are a few like this following me

      They just follow a bunch of people and a portion of those people follow them back.  Don't worry, they are penalized for doing this.

    I find it funny to see. However, I could only hazard to guess why anyone would follow someone else, especially if no profile is written and/or no hubs written. lol

    I don't understand why they do this. If they're spamming they will be penalized by HubPages so it does them no good.

    Sometimes I'll follow a new hubber with no hubs because I like their bio.  But I agree with you all, spamming followers is just bad form.

    I had one or two followers before I had hubs or followed someone else. It just happens.
