I am ready for more followers

Updated on November 15, 2012

Is it time for you to follow me?

After typing in over 800 hubs, I have found time in my busy schedule to welcome a new cohort of virtual sycophants into the nicomp family.

If you don't think I've been all that busy, read this. I'll wait...

Join us as we follow me. You probably won't be disappointed; the expectations are already so low. You can read about the evilness embodied by Google. Actually, you can indulge in a veritable plethora of Google-related screeds intended to send you screaming back to pen and paper.:

1. Google to Downgrade Pirate Sites in Search Results.

2. Google Style Guide: Does Google have a Style Guide?

3. What Does Google Know about You?

4. Make Money by Selling Adwords.

5. Fun Facts about the Page Rank Calculator.

... and so much more. It's all here for followers of me.

Read about Coolville, Ohio

Recently, as far as you know, a fellow hubber and self-proclaimed SEO expert advised his followers to write a series of related hubs and link them together with the hypertext technology thoughtfully provided by HubPages and the Internet. (That's a long sentence and Google will probably refuse to index this hub because of it.)

I participated in his little charade in order to expose the SEO underbelly for what it really is, an underbelly. I originally composed over 5 hubs all focused on the town of Coolville, Ohio. I linked them to each other organically. I did all kinds of other cool stuff like sacrificing a goat and spinning on my head while singing Justin Bieber songs.

Here are the hubs I wrote. If you follow me you may read them:

  1. I am not from Coolville,
  2. Coolville Cats,
  3. Coolville Spats,
  4. Coolville Hats,
  5. Coolville Gnats,
  6. Things to do in Coolville when you're Alive,
  7. Moving to Coolville, and.
  8. Coolville Muskrats.

After all this foll-De-roll I got almost but not quite no hits at all. No one visits my Coolville cornucopia of hubs. I may as well have written about Shipshewana.

What else is in it for you?

If you have to ask, you are truly a discerning sentient human and I wouldn't want to try to sell you a used car. Along with my Google hubs and Coolville hubs you will also have access to my "Buy Stuff Online" hubs. A few years ago, relatively speaking, I was told by a fellow hubber to write a skein of product-based hubs. 'Write product reviews', I was told. "You'll realize a residual income", I was assured.

Well, about 100 product-based hubs later I have achieved the minimum payout for Amazon commissions exactly one time. I haven't sold anything in over 6 months. I average about 10 Amazon clicks a month.

Just a few of my product-based hubs include:

  1. Buy Shakespeare Online
  2. I'm a Prepper, You're a Prepper
  3. Shop for the New World Order
  4. Jersey Sure
  5. Spinning Our Future
  6. Top Hats
  7. Straight Talk
  8. Paper Clips
  9. Buy Status Online
  10. Buy Truth Online

I could go on and on, but too much of a good thing is something I reserve for only my followers.

Something else to look forward to

If you are a really good follower, I may allow you access to my cache of hubs about hubbing, This somewhat award-winning collection of words, sentences, and paragraphs could possibly unlock the door to avenues of HubPages participation heretofore unimagined by you and your family. Learning is always fun when I make it fun.

Some of my hubs about hubbing:

  1. Vote for me for HubPages Elite,
  2. How to comment on my hubs,
  3. HubPages FAQ,
  4. HubTip: Get rich on 3 clicks a day,
  5. The First Hub I Ever Published,
  6. Banned from HubPages,
  7. The Nonsense of Backlinks,
  8. I am Joe's Hub, and
  9. What Can HubPages do for You?

They should probably make me king of this place, and I agree.

Join me, won't you?

I stand ready to accept you as a follower in this open-enrollment period. No questions asked, no quarter given. It's all here for you and you should be here for me.

      Wishing to retain my Perfect classification on your sycophants list, I would like clarification as to the action you require relative to this exhortation. Should I remain as one of your loyal long term disciples, or would you prefer that I "unfollow" you and then re-enlist as a starry-eyed new recruit who follows you into this dazzlingly bright future you have designed?

      drbj, who is not looking for Coolville? It's kind of like Atlantis, or Oz. And I found it.

      Yes, nicomp, linking your same subject hubs together often increases readership but your subject should be something readers are searching for. Coolville may not have been the answer.

      Alright I'll bite :). I enjoy your witty sense of humor as I too could envision myself writting (or saying) something of the sorts to others. Going to follow you now :).
