This has to be some kind of record! This Hubber has published 10 Hubs, been here for two years, and is following 6,233!
has to be for not good purposes, I often get followers who just signed up and are instantly following dozens of people - makes me wish there was a system where you could choose whether to allow someone to follow you or something.
That way they get notification of new publishings and can copy them straight onto their own site easily.
I can't see any other reason.
Mark, you may be right. I looked at his activity and I can tell he is following top Hubbers. I just thought (like some new Hubbers) he thought that would raise his score to have many followers. He followed me, but I did not follow back!
I didn't include his name here: thought was against the rules.
Whether to allow people to follow you or not probably wouldn't be a good idea. Who's to say why a person shouldn't follow me? If they harass me, well that's different, but just following? 6,233 is quite a lot though!

Is there a way to generate more followers on Hubpages? I try to find a new Hubber at least once a week to follow. I read their articles, comment if I have something to say and then follow that Hubber. I was just wondering if this was the only way to encourage more Hubbers to follow each other.

Just a quick question, as above, does having followers help your hubs/hubscore?

My feed is full of "shares" by a Hubber. HP recommends we do not share our own Hubs too frequently, why can't that apply to multiple sharings by the same Hubber for other Hubs. I don't think they can possibly read all those Hubs, I think it's done for other reasons.

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're following?Do you guys really think this makes people want to read and comment on...
