You Have To Be A Friend To Have Friends!

Updated on November 18, 2008

Say Something Nice!

When you publish your Hub, you are sure to be eager to know what people think of it. Of course, for that to happen, people have to know that it exists. One of the quickest, easiest ways you can let people know that your Hub exists is by searching Hub Pages for topics you are interested in. Read Hubs that deal with your genuine interests and make pertinent comments. Be sure to join the fan clubs of Hubbers whose work you like. That way you will know when they publish something new.

Don't just visit and comment when you want a comment for yourself. Be sure to check on your favorites frequently and offer encouragement and even constructive criticism. Any time someone visits your Hub and leaves a comment, be sure to return the favor.

Outside of Hub Pages, you can get more visitors and more comments to your Hub through social networking. Add a link to your newest Hubs to your e mail signature. Join social groups in which you have a genuine interest and participate in their activities. Drop a link to your Hubs whenever you have a new one or you have one that is pertinent to what is going on with the group.

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Choose Memorable Images

Select a pretty or striking image for your profile photo. Make it something that will stand out so that people who are looking for your comments on Hubs will be able to find them easily.

Add attractive photos and illustrations to your Hubs to make them more pleasing to the eye and to help make your message more clear.

Win Friends & Influence People! :)

Have Fun And Socialize!

The Internet is a social place! Let people know you are here and that you are interested in knowing and learning from them. The more comfortable you become, the more online friends you will have, the more comments you will have on your Hubs! Of course, you should exercise a reasonable amount of caution. Don't give out personal information or publish things that you might find embarrassing later. But for the most part, if you keep it light and friendly, you can have fun, make a lot of new friends, and enjoy some online success!

    Glad I read this hub. I get very few comments on my various hubs, and wasn't sure why this is so. I routinely comment on my favorite hubbers' writing, but perhaps I need to range further and "follow" more Hubpages writers. JAYE

    Very sound words. I try to regularly go over all my fans and the ones I am a fan of. It helps a lot.

    One of my favorite aspects of my Hubs is choosing the pictures. I don't know why, but I just LOVE searching for and finding the perfect image to compliment my content!
