1. Some folks have joined my fan club.... are we supposed to reciprocate?.. If I join more fan clubs or more folks join mine... does it impact the score?
2. Somebody has left a comment... are we supposed to reply?
3. How is the overall score computed?
1. fan if you like the person or their writing. If you resiprocate every fan u get, you'll wind up with a list of favorites you don't even care for. Also, don't expect other to reciprocate your fanniing, most won't unless they're new
2. YES reply to comments you recieve. Not only does it show the commenter you appreciate their view and comment, but also puts your hub in hubtivity which can bring in more HP traffic
3. A variety of factors--hubs published, individ. hub scores, community participation. All sorts of things. There are countless hubs devoted to this, just do a search. There are also forums out the wazoo about it
Only join a fan club if you are interested in what they have to say. It's got nothing to do with your hubscore; other than the fact that more people may look at your stuff. However, I wouldn't depend on that.
In the same vein, I don't feel you have to reply to every single comment. But, other feel differently.
About hubscore...great minds cannot figure it out...
1. Do as you like. I personally do reciprocate, if this is not a spammer. Yet it does affect hubscore, both ways.
2. Do as you like. I personally try to reply to every comment, but often fall behind.
3. Great minds don't bother, cause it's not worth the effort in most cases. As long as you stay within the rules, you are fine
I make every attempt to reply to comments on my Hubs because I believe it is appropriate to let that person know you are managing your Hub.
I also thank Uninvited Writer, Misha, Darkside(will checkout your hub later), Healthcare basics, getpaidto post.

Should we call our "HP friends" on not being actual friends?I have more respect for those who read some of their "friends" articles, on occasion, than those who never do. Is it best to un-follow and ignore those who are friends in name only? I tend to think so. How about you?

When I first started on Hubpages, there seemed to be more reciprocation. In other words, if I read and commented on someone's hub, they'd do the same on one of mine. But now that doesn't seem to be the case. Has anyone else noticed the same?

What's your take on jealousy among hubbers on Hubpages?I published a hub a few days ago. The hubscore started at 66 and has been doing great. Two nights ago the hub went to 91. A hubber left a comment on the hub - "How did you get that many followers?". The hubber did not say anything...

I don't post in these forums anymore, so most of you won't know who I am, but I've been around a long time. I am not going to get into a debate with *anyone*, this is just an FYI for those of you who are panicked about the latest Google changes. 1. Google did a big change of some sort a couple of...

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably because I've spent a lifetime being flattered by others only to find that they wanted...

I know exactly how that hamster feels. Running on that little wheel just as hard as it can but not doing anything but exerting a great deal of energy. The harder I try here to write; the more frustrating I become. I'm too old for merry go rounds. At least I can say I gave it all I had. Now that...
