Why are people keen to get followers here?
Is there a financial payoff in it? Or just about voting up those who's writing you like?
Because for many it is seen as a measure of success. Lots of followers means viewers of your profile will think you are doing well - why else would so many people be following this user? Financially it does not matter because money is earned from search engine traffic mostly and not from fellow Hubbers.
You need some feedback on how you are performing especially from peers
To get many followers is not related to earnings on the hubpages It is just a criteria to assess how much your profile is exposed and popular among other hubbers
I think it provides some assurance to one's self that one is doing something right.
If no one is following you then I would think it's time to examine just what the heck one is doing and fix it.
Or ,as they say, "if you always do what you've always done you'll always get what you always got".

Why is it that some hub writers have near 1,000 followers but only follow less than 100 writers?I notice that there is a wide gap between the followers and the followed on hub pages. Some have hundreds of followers but only follow a very small percentage back. Is this because all those...

Dear Hubbers. I've recently noticed so many changes on Hubpages. I had no internet for a week and upon my return things look so different. I like the cleaner white pages with the underline beneath the titles. The column width seems narrower, while now advertisements show up on both left and right...
