Write Iteresting Hubs!
There is no overnight magic formula.
When I first joined Hubpages over 4 years ago now I had no idea how it all worked, or how to get followers. I didn't even know about following other people and reading their hubs. I was pleasantly surprised when a lovely chap called 'Misha' followed me and began commenting on my writing. Before I knew it my followers went up daily, and during this time I found time to read other people's work, and when I liked what they wrote I followed them so I would be notified when they published new stuff. It just kept growing from there, and with little effort from me. Now I have around 1500 followers, and whilst I seriously doubt even a fifth of them actually get around to reading my hubs, it is still nice to see the occasional new follower and hope they simply like what I write. If you produce the quality articles the followers will come naturally.
Thanks for the info Misty. I am a newbie at this also. This keeps me inspired to keep writing on here.
Reading and commenting on other people's hubs and being active in Q&A and the forums also helps others get to know you. However, don't go overboard on it, just a little at a time.
Using humor for just about anything, from straight comedy to giving a serious subject a nice light-heartedness never hurt either. But even deadly serious, thought-provoking articles about little known subjects that you are passionate about will also go a long way.
I'm new here, and what I just described is my writings (Do check them out; you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll learn) and I'm 8 for 8 on not only getting published, but all have been "Featured" as well. I am assuming that's an achievement. I seem to be slowly building up a cult following and soon all will bow before me!
Muahahahahahaha! Sorry, lost my composure there.

Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?

Do you continue to read hubs of those you follow if they don't comment on your hubs?When you have limited time do you just comment on those who regularly comment on your hubs?

I've just reached a landmark of 100 followers (yay, me!), which might not seem like much, but it's built up pretty slowly over time, and I've made sure to interact with everyone I'm following regularly (106 now), checking out new hubs, etc. It made me consider an interesting question:How do...

Do you ever leave comments on hubs that you have not read in full?Once in a while I see comments on hubs that suggest that the writer did not take time or care to engage the writer by fully reading the hub before commenting. A lot of times a hub makes great reading but the sheer content of the hub...
