Norma, I just scanned your hub list and read a couple (Presidents, Civil War and one of the dog hubs).
1. Platforms - Because you write about pets, I'm surprised you don't have more readership. Usually that is a Top 5 view getter. Do you link to social media. Twitter and FB are enormously powerful for hubs. I use them and get a lot of views after I post on Twitter. I still don't have 50K views, but I do see an uptick over the past 5 months since I've been on Twitter.
2. You don't seem to be following a lot of people. I try to follow hubbers who write interesting material and who I feel are high quality. And I also try to support new hubbers. You don't have to follow everybody. I just use an unofficial criteria.
3. Regarding your Presidents hub, I do have a couple of suggestions. Let me know and I can email the ideas through HP.
Keep writing. The topics are interesting. I've only been a dog owner a couple of years, so I'm still learning.
Norma, I don't wish to be 'nit-picking,' but even the question has a grammatical error. It should read, "Why do my Hubs do so badly?"
Not to say I don't make grammatical errors as well. And as these Hubs are scanned by computer and not by actual humans, word for word, I don't suppose it matters that much.
Hub Pages seem to want 100% perfection. Frankly, they ask a lot for what little one gets in return. But it is a platform in which we can actually communicate with one another. So keep writing, Norma. Every reader you get is a commendation.

Why don't I have followers?Why don't I have any followers? Some people have over a thousand followers, and I don't have a single one! What should I do differently?

I have strived over the last 5 weeks to produce as many hubs as i can but to a high quality. I heard at first that if go around serial 'following' this can penalise your hubscoreI added a few people but then cut down...

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?
