Do you think it is important to have an attractive profile pic? Does it catches your attention?
Which attracts you the most a person's own pic or anything that is attractive?
Most certainly - it is part of your brand identity. Only a few established Hubbers and brands such as Habee and Google can morf their logo/profile pic and still be recognized.
Profile images definitely catch my attention and yes, I think it is important to have a representative profile pic. Still, I am most attracted by the content.
It depends. You might have the most attractive profile pic and the suckiest hub content on the face of the planet. In order to be attractive on both levels, you need both a good image and a good reputation as a hubber.
What attracts me the most on a person's profile is the content in the hubs. and not the picture.
No, because you could look like Brad Pitt, and still have crappy hubs. Your photo is not going to make me follow you. If what you have written enlightens, engages, or is moving, would catch my attention first
A little eye candy never hurts to catch someones attention... though it's the content of the hubs that KEEPS their attention.
Personally, I appreciate people posting (what we assume are) their actual pics, to me it adds a touch of honesty to their profile, put a face to the name as opposed to some random avatar.
The content is most important. The person's own pic is maybe better than a pic of a dog or cat, though I admire thos animals very much.
I recently signed up for Hubpages, so my opinion is coming from the view point of a first time user. I read my first hub today. It was about the hubpages "no follow" policy. I assumed the user was some internet guy. I quickly noticed the user picture because it was a very attractive female. It completely got my attention and changed my assumptions about who wrote the post.

Are you likely to "follow" someone who doesn't have a profile picture posted?

Ironically, the hub it happened on is about Haunted Hollywood. Perhaps the hub itself is haunted? Whatever, it was quite a shock to find I've turned into an older gentleman, albeit a rather nice looking one, that I don't recognize. Oddly, this is the only hub where I don't...

I have seen many articles in google search results which have the authors pic beside them. My Dad also told me recently about "claiming authorship" with google to get this to work.Is this possible with hubpages? Has anyone done it?

I noticed this morning that my profile pic was appearing next to hubber phdast7's comments on other people's hubs. At first I thought that it was a momentary glitch, so I refreshed, and it was still there. I clicked on the link to the comment, and my pic was still there. Here's a link to (one of)...
