How to Get More Followers at Hubpages?

Why you need more followers?

Getting more and more followers to your Hubs is a very important thing. When you publish a new Hub, you followers are the first to know about this. Many of them read your Hub and if they like it, they share it or make a comment on it. Because of this, their followers get to know about your Hub. Thus your Hub is spread like a virus.

More followers means more traffic. Suppose that you have 100 followers you reach to 100 followers. Suppose that the average number of followers of your followers is 100, then your extended circle of followers is 10000.

Now suppose you have 1000 followers and the average number of followers of your followers is again 100, then your extended circle of followers is 1,00000. Here your Hubs get more chances of getting commented and getting shared.

How to Get More Followers?

Getting followers is not an easy task. You can not get a high number of followers in short time. It is a long term process. However, you can speed up this process by following these steps:

1. The most important thing you have to do to get followers is to be present on Hubpages regularly. Your presence is the most important thing to get followers. When other Hubbers will see you, only then they can consider to add you. If you are not there, that is of no use.

To show your presence, follow these steps:

1. Write regularly.

2. Make comments on Hubs written by others. The comments should be at least in 2-4 lines. Just saying 'Good Hub' is not recommended.

3. Take part in the forum discussions

4. Start new topics in the forums

5. Answer the questions asked by the new Hubbers

6. Ask question about the things you do not know

7. Ask some questions even if you know the answers. This helps others, and you show your presence.

2. Write important things about yourself in your Hub profile. Write about your work, achievements. It will attract some followers.Your profile should be in detail, but not too long. Also it should be never in 2-3 lines.

3. Add an attractive photograph of yours to your Hub profile. If there is no photograph, many people will ignore you.

4. Follow other Hubbers. When you follow others, some of them will follow you. I suggest you to prefer to follow High score (80+) Hubbers having at least 100 followers. You can find such Hubbers in the Hubbers section of your page. But remember that they will follow you only if your Hubs are interesting, useful and they see your presence regularly. Adding online Hubbers is more useful.

5. Use other methods of attracting traffic to your Hubs. More traffic will give you more followers. (See related Hubs at the end of this Hub)

So start to apply above suggestions to get more and more followers. Once you get a considerable number of followers, the number will increase rapidly without much efforts.

Nice little hub!

Since I am more interested in reading than writing, I tend to read lots of hub and most are very well written indeed.

I only write on my interests when I have a compelling reason to do so, e.g on some recent disturbing news on wildlife conservation, travel reports for summer season, etc.

I really hope that my message reaches out to people who are able to protect our common heritage. Your tips will be helpful in this regard.

I've found that hub hopping is a great way to find really good hubs and to gain followers. I haven't been doing it as much lately because things have been too hectic. But I hope to get back to it soon. It's also a great way to find newer hubbers and give them some encouragement.

This is good advice that will never go out of date! I dislike it when I get a new follower and when I check their profile activity, I see they have followed MANY others. These are new Hubbers, and they should be warned against this practice. They don't read the Hubs at all, just follow.

I wrote a Hub about unfollowing Hubbers. When you have some time give it a read and see if you agree or not.

Voted UP, and I certainly will share.

Internal backlinks are safe only if they are related to the subjects.

I agree with everything in this hub except your suggestion of following high-ranking hubbers with at least 100 followers. I make it a point to follow new hubbers, and to read their work. How else can we welcome talented new writers into this community?

denkmuske,

Thank you for reading my Hub and sharing your views.

There are about 232,000 Hubbers on Hubpages. I got this figure from the Hubbers section of Hubpages. I think a big percentage of this number is non-active and not present on Hubpages regularly. But even if there are just 25% Hubbers active, that number i.e. 58,000 is great as all of them are writers and writer-come-readers

Great text, Mahavir,

while things like following those with a lot of followers occured to me after taking a look around - they also have quite interesting texts - i also like to hop hubs for less connected people. There are some diamonds hidden, I am sure. You very nicely put some really effective ways of increasing the number followers together.

When reading your calculation about reaching an audience of 100k people I thought that it would be interesting to find a mathematician who could integrate the fact that of these 100k followers quite a few might be connected to eachother in the calculation. That brings me to a question I will pose now ;) How many users do the hubpages have?

Thanks for the info. I'm new to HP so I'm still only in the beginning of my learning curve. However, I have one question. I read yesterday in someone's Hub that they recommended to HP to close another person's HP's because he/she was using too many backlinks. I noticed that backlinks were recommended in one of the related items above. Are backlinks safe or are they only safe if you use them once in a while? What is the rule for backlinks? Maybe there should be a HP about backlinks or should I just read more HP tutorials? I'll be looking for you response. Thanks again. Please stop by and read one of my HP.

You give some sound advice. However, may I also add that when you follow someone, make sure you comment or read their hubs first. Otherwise, you hubscore will go down if you just follow people you haven't read.

SOCIALLY SHARED and voted up.
