- Help for New Hubbers
Removing Inactive Followers on Hubpages it really helps.
The purpose of this article is to help people who are new to hubpages realize that they should be selective about who they follow on Hubpages and how to stop following people on here who are inactive.
As of today 11/09/2011 I can say with certainty that you will benefit by not following inactive people on hubpages.
In my oponion you should follow people who
- Write Quality Hubs
- Who are following you
- Who are active on Hubpages
- Leave comments on your hubs
- Can help you learn things
- Share information freely
- Are active in contests
- Are Hubpages Elite or Hubpages staff
- Write articles similar to yours
In my opinion you should not follow people who
- Are inactive (haven't published anything in months)
- Write low quality hubs
- Do not leave you any feedback
- Are rude
Why does it matter who I follow?
I get a fair amount of traffic from hubpages, I have never figured it out but I would guess that 10% of my traffic comes from other hubbers.
I realize that other hubbers will not be buying things from Amazon links and clicking my ads but at the same time they can and do provide me with feedback as to how my writing is doing by voting a hub up and awesome for example.
Other hubbers also can help you learn things from how to get traffic to your hubs and anything else you would like to know.
But if you are following someone who has not wrote a hub in 6 months they aren't going to be doing much helping.
I would recommend that you go your account and click on the activity tab,then click on hubbers you follow and see if you have any people who you may want to stop following.
If you see someone who has not done anything on hubpages in 3 years I would recommend not following them because they are inactive.
Please keep in mind that this is just something that I personally think may help you and I cannot guarantee that it makes any differece at all.
I have stopped following several people as of today and I will from time to time stop following more because I take hubpages seriously and I don't want to be following anyone who doesn't meet the criteria above.
I need to trade some links!
I mentioned above to follow people who write articles that are similar to yours because I love swapping links with other hubbers.If anyone has a hub that they would like to trade links with me please send me a email or leave it in a comment (I won't publish it) and I will be happy to trade some links to see if we can help generate each other some more traffic.
I look forward to reading in the comments - how other hubbers feel about this hub.
