I'm brand new to HubPages, and I'm mostly exploring the site as of now, although I have posted a few hubs just to get a feeling of what is to come.
I think I've discovered most of the main components to the site, but considering I obviously lack experience here, I'm curious about the social aspect.
Mostly, I'm wondering what kind of importance gaining and following others holds in relation to your content. Although my main interest is not driving traffic or earning money, I DO want people to see what I write and get feedback, and do the same for others who I find to have interesting content.
I was thinking that, for a new member at least, it would be very convenient to open a way to get people to follow you and then follow them in return to at least get a strong basis of connection with the HubPages community because honestly, for me, there isn't much point to writing content if you aren't sharing it with other people, right?
If your primary goal is to interact with people, then by all means interact. That means hanging out in forums, commenting, reading other people's hubs, following other hubbers...The Hubpages community is really great, I hope you find your way here. Let getting followers be a spontaneous process and don't worry much about it. Write good quality content and success will come!
What you are requesting sounds convenient, but in actuality you are better off earning your followers one by one. Read hubs by others, answer and ask questions, and participate in the community. People are quick to sign up and forget, you need to do something special to make them remember you and pay homage to your writings.
You're on the right start by participating in the community. People have to know you exist before they can, well, know you exist as a writer.
Website Examiner is right about reading others. You will find the most enjoyment of the community by giving of your time. The old reap what you sow thing.
Everyone is offering you perfect advice. It sounds like you want to and you ARE starting off on the right foot. Interact in the forums, read others' hubs, and produce quality work. That's it. No secrets
Best of luck here at HP!
Has anybody used article marketing robot?
Is it safe?
Is it allowed for adsense?
OK, I meant relevance to this discussion: "Getting to know the HubPages community as a new member."
I suggest you post your question in the Knowledge Exchange forum: http://hubpages.com/forum/3
You can, but it will get flagged by people hubhopping to it because it will suck horrifically. Worse, if you want to participate in the community and you are posting that kind of garbage, people are going to see you commenting in forums and hubs and be interested in you as a person, so they will want to read what you write. Then they will discover your hubs are empty spew and that you are just another one of those people puking fake content hoping to make click-victims out of people that were searching for genuine information. It's up to you though, it's your experience here on HP, you can approach it however you like.
It's wonderful software that helps you pollute the Internet with junk.
In my opinion, anyone who even suggests using such a thing should be banned from HubPages.
You might be pleased to know that Adsense is now moving to ban people who use article spinners and Google Search is dropping sites which use them, three cheers anyone?
Twenty one gun salute.
I love that the Wikipedia entry on this calls it an SEO method..
Where did you see this about Adsense?

Had an outside person say they wanted to "follow" me, but said that th link did not work. Do people have to be members of the community to follow each other?

I have only been a member of HubPages for 5 weeks, and already I have made close to $1,000. I know that this is not exceptional for some Hubbers, except I only have 13 hubs, I am not an internet marketing guru,...
