How to Give Hub Love

Give Link Love

Before submitting a new Hub, you should always use the link suggestion tool. This allows you to link to other Hubs within Hub Pages which drives traffic to your fellow Hubbers. Showing respect to other authors within Hub Pages is what link love is all about.

Benefits of link love:

  • Providing link love does have an effect on your Hub Karma score. Improving Hub Karma means that you are more valuable to Hub Pages.
  • When you encourage readers to visit other articles within the site, you drive traffic to their Hubs and hopefully they will do the same for you in return.

Love your followers.

When someone follows you, you should follow them in return. Support your followers. When I comment on one or more of an authors Hubs. I follow them. After choosing to follow them, I leave them fan mail.

Also, when I receive the email from Hub Pages about a new follower, I always go to that followers profile and read some of their Hubs and comment. I follow them back and leave them fan mail.

How to support your followers:

  • Follow them back. Also, be sure to leave them some fan mail.
  • Leave comments . Leave sincere comments. When you do, this Hubber will most often want to see who left such a nice comment. They will check out your profile and read your Hubs leaving you comments as well.
  • Answer Questions. Leave a high quality answer to a question. This is a great way to meet fellow Hubbers. Leave a good answer and people will most likely follow you.
  • Answer forum questions. Another great way to meet fellow Hubbers is by providing them with help in the forum.
  • Vote them up, Tweet them, Share them on Facebook, Submit them to Digg and StumbleUpon. We should be supporting one another in every way possible. This only helps everyone including Hub Pages. Think about this: When you do a Google search, you almost always pull up a Hub at the top of the search list. Why? Providing Hub love is one reason. When you submit to the Social Networking or Bookmarking sites, you are creating links back to Hub Pages. It all adds up! So, we should all take the time to support each other by submitting links to Hubs.
  • Each week in my gmail I receive a notification on my followers latest Hubs. I set aside one day out of the week and go back to that email and link to the latest Hubs from there. I would think linking to Hub Pages from Gmail is noticed by Google.......

Be sincere. Be a great follower and you will gain a group of dedicated followers of your own.

Benefits of being a great follower.

The number one benefit of being a great follower is that you grow a group of the most awesome individuals that you could ever hope to meet. Honestly, I have met some pretty amazing people here on Hub Pages that I would not have met otherwise. I am thankful to have met each and every one!

Yes, there are other benefits of being a great follower:

  • Being a great follower helps increase your readership. When you publish a Hub, your followers get notified. In turn, they visit your Hub and read your post.
  • They support you back. How? By leaving comments, providing feedback, rate your Hubs, Tweet you, Share you on Facebook. Who could ask for more love than that? You should be sure to do the same for them. You should be doing it anyway!

Give Hub Lovin'

In conclusion, we are not competitors. We are Hubbers. We are all in this together. We should give Hub love and support always. It's all about respect.

      Neakin - what a great hub chock-full of wonderful ideas for sharing the love here on Hubpages! In my own ponderous way, I wrote something similar as one of my earliest hubs and I think it made my own experience here very gratifying. I have some wonderful followers and follow-ees, whose comments give me great pleasure. It looks like you've come a long way since your beginning here, as well.

      I admire your story on your profile. You will surely be a hero to your children too!

      Hugs- Nellieanna

      (this gets my votes across the board, too, btw.)

      I was thinking you might be giving 150 ways to give hub love..... or 150 where to love fellow hubbers. Good hub my friend - you are creative and fun both.

      Thank you so much for your wonderful and kind comment. Thank you vocalcoach for following me as well. I am truly honored to have met you all and would like to figure out ways to support you all the way that you and everyone else have me. That's what this hub was all about and sometimes it is all the little things that lead up to an avalanche of good things to come! I hope you have a great day! Thank you so much for your comment!

      What a stunning example you are of "hublove". This fantastic hub speaks volumnes about you, neakin. I have read my share of "hub tips and tutorials", but nothing to compare with this. You are in a class by itself, and I am honored to have met you here on HP and to be a fan. Thank you for following me and for the supportive and caring comments you have left me. May peace and love dwell with you ~ vocalcoach
