Is it really worth it to follow every single person you encounter in HubPages? I think not. I mean, I see some people on here with thousands of followers and dozens of hubs (with poor grammar and spelling), and their profile HubScores are only in the low 60's. In contrast, I'm a very conservative follower as I focus mostly on my writing skills here in HP, I only follow those people that I truly have an interest in, and my average HubScore is in the 90's. So what's your opinion on following as many people as possible just to try and get more followers?
Twitter has taught me to only follow those that truly interest me. Otherwise things can get unmanageable. I went off the radar here on Hubpages for a year or so and my hubscore is down in the 50's. The plan is to get back into it slowly and comment here or there where it interests me to do so, follow a few hubbers that I can relate to and post a hub or two a month. I should be up in the 80's again in no time.

Hello,I have read some fastinating hubs and when I follow them I hope they will return the favor. How many of you agree? It will definitely place our hubs in a much higher paying bracket.

Hello,I've been working hard over the past six months per hubpages and have what I think are a number of nice, interesting hubs. They are getting read quite a bit but few other hubbers choose to follow me. I sometimes will run a query of a topic I'm interested in (like the singer Neil...

Is it worth sacrificing your hubscore to get more followers?I notice people do mass following in order to get more people to follow them, but I've also noticed it seems to have a direct relationship with a falling hubscore. So, Is it worth it?

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...
