Follow The Hubber
Follow The Leader...
Are you perhaps a new Hubber and eager for followers and comments on your hubs? Maybe you're an experienced Hubber but still feel you want more followers and don't know how to gain them?
It's quite simple actually. Followers follow when the content keeps them hanging. Everyone's personal taste varies and not everyone likes the same thing. A good hub consists of a few well researched paragraphs, a photo to accompany the article and sometimes a poll could throw in a twist.
Paragraphs can be long or short, but no matter what the length one should always.. ALWAYS do a spell check before publishing it. A simple spelling mistake could make one read twice and even confuse non native speakers of English. If you are uncertain, I suggest you use a dictionary like an Oxford or a Roget's. However, not everyone can gain access to a dictionary so an online dictionary is one of the best tools for a writer.
Photos should generally relate to the article one is writing about. Sometimes Hubbers cannot find a photo and put up something different. A few Hubbers have even created hubs purely from photos; something unique and attractive if it is gone about correctly.
Polls, news feeds and videos are a means of interacting with the viewer and may spark a comment or two.
So to all of those Hubbers wanting followers, write good content in your hubs and remember that word of mouth and advertising is important if you want to succeed.
