How does someone on hubpages get a large following without writing hubs?


When I am hub hopping, I have noticed that there are many people with little or no hubs and they have hundreds of followers. I see that some of them are following many people and I understand the reciprocity factor but I don't still don't understand the why and how of their fanbase.

    I have seen that on Twitter also. In an attempt to build a business, I am on most of the media channels but....I do not advertise or follow just to follow. I also don't "collect" followers. That is why this baffles me!

    You are right. We should follow hubs that are of interest to us (whether they follow us or not) I feel the same way about comments. They should be left when they are sincere.

    Thank you for answering. Sometimes I tend to be impulsive. Someone follows me, I follow right back. Now, like you, I stop and read their profiles, check out their hubs!

    I know, right?!?! I have been here 4 months, writing diligently, forming a small but worthy following and then I see someone with 500 followers and no hubs or another who asks several questions a day and no hubs. I don't get it! thanks for answering,
