      Hi Friend, To rise the number of fans you can join other fan clubs in the rate of 4 to 5 each day. Try to publish informative hubs and maintain the quality of Hub. Whenever you have good profile score and a lot of good hubs, you will begin to get good traffic and adsense earnings. Now I am also your fan!

        If you want to waste all that effort, Ratna, that's up to you.

        Just remember that fans and traffic are two totally separate things. Fans are Hubbers, and Hubbers don't click on ads, so lots of fans doesn't make a ha'porth of difference to your income.

        That doesn't mean I don't appreciate my fans, of course I do.  But personally, I only join a fan club if I genuinely admire a Hubber's writing, or I'm interested in their topics.

        What you should be focussing on is attracting the search engines.  Write good evergreen Hubs, learn about SEO and how to promote your Hubs - al that will do much more good than joining umpteen fan clubs.

    Help you, I can ...

    First off ... fans ... My experience has been these come more from forum participation than actual hub reads, but I suppose this changes with time.

    On the forums, be witty, be interesting, but stave away from controversy as it can only knock you down in the end. In time, people will decide you might be likable enough and offer to be a fan ... or they might go the other route and burn a Yugo on your front lawn, which is why you never you give out your home address on forums.

    As for readers ... understand that it takes time for the web crawlers to discover your hubs. If they are well-written and contain interesting info, they'll succeed in time - elsewise said as  - if you build it, they will come!

    At two weeks, I'm as old as you are here, but I make it a point to learn all about land surrounding a castle before calling it home, which is how I have discovered a few interesting things about the site.

    Foremost and beyond, the ratio of good people to bad people here is might high, which makes this a safe place to set down your flag and build your small kingdom - just beware of the troll that guards the bridge ... I found a snickers bar and a yoohoo typically placates the beast, but he has been known to reject such fine offerings at times. smile (don't know where that last sentence just came from - perhaps too many years of creative writing).

    Fans, real ones, not the ones that only do it in the hope that you'll fan them back, will get you a few extra views in your stats.

    But traffic, real outside traffic (especially from Search Engines) will get you revenue.

    fans will come with time, just like everything else.
    Just keep yourself visible to other hubbers--as in keep yourself in hubtivity.
    To do this post in the forums, as yoshi said, and read and comment on other hubs. Also make sure you answers comments made to your own hubs as well.

    If you keep your name out there, hubbers will head to your hubs.

    As your readership grows, so will your fandom wink

    27 hubs in 2 weeks. That's great enough to create fans especially if you continue or increase your rate of creating hubpage
