Follow Me - All about helping young hubbers

    Hi there I'm Ben, fairly new to hubpages and really excited to be here. I love to write about home and lifestyle, how to's and anything out of the ordinary. 

    The purpose of this forum post is to help young hubbers get followers and maybe when they publish their first few hubs to receive a few comments and therefore encourage them to write more, better hubs having taken in the feedback from other hubbers.

    Even 1 or 2 comments are enough to achieve that feeling "Hey, people are actually reading my work!" Be it positive or negative feedback I would just like to help young hubbers to get the ball rolling and building their readership.

    Having said that, this is NOT a forum to promote your hubs. It is simply to start a small readership, and strive to expand it in the future.

    So, what do I want you to do? - Post your interests, the type of hubs you write (e.g: relationships, dating, business, home and lifestyle) so other hubbers if they share the same interests as you, can follow your work, and purhaps leave a comment.

    If you're unsure what I mean, please refer to the top paragraph of this post.

    All the Best,

      Welcome Ben - although all the things you mention already exist within the HP package.  Although I do admire your boy-scout enthusiasm big_smile

    Hi Ben and welcome to the site!

    There are a special group of members called the Hubgreeters who strive to welcome new members to the site by commenting on their hubs, following them etc. (http://hubpages.com/hub/What-is-a-HubGreeter)

    You'll find that the more hubs you write, and the more you interact on the site, the more comments and followers you'll get. When you publish a new hub, it gets displayed on the site in the new hubs section in various areas (hubs list, categories, main page for category followers etc.)

    However if you're here for traffic and money - you won't find it from other Hubpages members. High traffic comes from search engines, including Google in particular. I currently average 600 views a day (used to be 1200 before latest Google update) and only about 5% of those are from other members - the rest are from search engines.

      Ditto. Hi, Wry!

      And welcome to you, Ben! BTW, I'm not an official greeter, but I'm a Southerner and must keep up the image of Southern hospitality. lol

    Thank you everyone for your comments and a BIG WARM WELCOME smile

    I apologize for the late reply, my hands were full and my feel are still very much rooted to the ground.

    Wrylilt, thanks for the link - I am after a wide readership more than earning on hubpages at the moment, but of course, I wouldn't mind the financial help either wink
