You have to pick a hot topic. Hot topics are mostly what teenagers or those not overly intellectual follow.
Teenagers like anything about video games and video game hardware. If you have expertise in these you can rapidly gain YouTube followers and likely HubPage followers.
Hockey, Football, Basketball and UFC (ultimate fighting) are also big draws.
Hot subjects among the less intellectual are about
1. New World Order
2. Contrails and conspiracy theory
3. UFO conspiracy and cover ups
Write about those subjects and your view meter will rise rapidly.
You can also attract followers with subject such as cooking, knitting, crochet and how-to subjects on just about anything. e.g. how to cook, how to sew, etc.
Another hot subject is the star "du jour". Write about Justin Bieber and they will come.
And, of course, have lots of content well written with some links.
