Please help. I have tried to follow quite a few hubbers in the last couple of days. Every time when I click on 'Follow' it turns to nofollow. Why is this? Where do I find some hubbers I can follow as I'm hoping some will follow me back.
Hi Anita, if you are already following a Hubber it will show "unfollow" at the top so that if you wish to stop following them you click that. Anyone you aren't already following will show a "follow" button at the top.
Anita, You should only follow people who you want to keep up with, reading their new hubs. If you follow just to get someone to follow you back, most likely you will get people following you who never read your hubs. Is that really what you want? Real followers will come along gradually in time as long as your hubs are well-written and provide useful engaging information.
When someone follows me I look at their activity in their profile. If I see they followed a lot of people faster than they obviously can read, I ignore them. Many serious Hubbers do the same.
Thanks for the advice Glen. You are certainly right. I read their hub first, and if I enjoy it, I follow them.I wonder if you can help me with the following. How do I get to blogspot's forum where I can ask questions. I find they are not as user friendly as Hubpages. Or maybe I am not using the forums right. I need to know the following. I live in South Africa, and for our views on our blogspot blogs they calculate with pacific time. Do I need to change my settings. I get a lot of views, then they take most of it back again due to the difference in 'time. Don't quite understand this.
Blogger is totally different from HubPages. Each person has their own blog and they are all totally separate - most blogspot bloggers don't talk to each other at all.

I noticed recently after I followed someone in error, that I couldn't stop following them. Is this a new feature that when we follow another hubber, it's for ever now? Because this function is not working!
