    How Long Did it Take You to Build Up a Big HubPages Following?

      5 years, what do you expect to get 600 followers while i followed 1000?

    I was wondering this same thing.

      Be active with HubPages forums.  Comment on a Hubber's hub, follow the hubber and be active within the community.  Change your profile picture with your own image smile

        Is it really better to have a photo than a piece of your art?  That seems counter-intuitive.  But if it helps direct traffic I'll certainly do it!  I'm more used to places like deviantart where having a snapshot is considered worse than having art.  Different sites with different priorities make things confusing for noods!  But that's the way of the world.  Thanks for the advice!

        You do not have to comment or follow people to get followers.  I do almost none of either.  And it doesn't matter what your profile picture is, as long as you have one.

        You have to write something that is considered useful or helpful by a majority of the active HubPages community to get a lot of followers.

          I agree with relache and would like to add that having a large following is really not a good goal to aim for.  Most people who follow you don't really read your hubs. And followers are Hubbers, who are limited in number.

          It is better to aim for high quality writing which will appeal to a mass audience and is written in such a way (use proper SEO techniques) that search engines can find it easily.  When you write like that, you will also appeal to Hubbers and get a following.

            Even though I am a novice at hub pages and have only started exploring its facets, I am not entirely convinced that having a huge following means people are actually reading your work. As mentioned above, high quality writing and tactful formatting is likely to direct traffic to one's profile. I am still figuring out these aspects myself, and feel that the forums have been more useful and resourceful than any of my own reading and delving into the subject.

    I don't have many followers and I also dream of having more. I think when they get value from your hubs or comments, hubbers will follow you. I see this in the hubbers who have always contribute something useful and have lenses that are well written, interesting and of value. They get lots of followers even if they don't follow many. Having said that, I was happy to get a follow from Bill Gates for making a comment in his Linked in post.

    You only want followers who like reading what you write. The best way to do that is to write good quality hubs, read others that interest you and leave encouraging and constructive comments. Follow those whose writing appeals to you and they may follow you back. It's quality of followers that's important, not quantity.
