Just wondering, what your opinion is on the impact the fan club has on your hubs? I have a few (Who I greatly appreciate)fans, hoping to have more someday down the road. But for you who have a multitude of fans, what impact does it really have on your hubs?
the main impact is that having fans means you are interacting with other hubbers - which means you will get some internal traffic to your hubs, and comments in exchange - which means your hub scores will go up - which means you will likely get some external traffic from that internal traffic - which will increase your hubbers score - which never hurts when hubs are indexed.
so yes, getting fans means you are working to promote your efforts.
That's a misconception - a higher Hubscore does not lead to higher external traffic. It's the other way around - higher traffic will lead to a higher Hubscore.
Fans are good for the ego and make Hubbing a less solitary affair. Fans are more likely to leave good comments, and good comments add to the value of your Hubs.
Most fans aren't people interested in reading your hubs. They fan in the hope that they'll be fanned back.
Real readers who appreciate your work and wish to be notified when something new is published are great. Certainly if a person were to have hundreds of them, they'd have a lot of impact. But the fammers, in my opinion, outnumber the fans by at least 10 to 1.
I don't have alot but I think it helps get your Hubs read. It also helps identify those with like minds.
I'm not sure-- I appreciate all my fans, but when you get quite a few-- it seems like a lot of people jump in just because you have a lot.
I appreciate those who post a comment-- and usually go to read a a few hubs from a person who does that.
I suppose I should say that I like all my fans. And I do. Nailed to my wall. But of those that are in my *cringes* fan club, maybe a couple of dozen actually potter about reading my stuff.
I'm not a fan of many - I'll have to look and see TBH - but I have a certain amount I try and keep on top of. I don't always manage it, I may miss the odd article, but I do try.

Oops! That title is supposed to say "Impact of Massive Hub Editing"!I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has totally rewritten a Hub that ranked well and was getting a fair amount of traffic (say, 20-50...

I've come to the conclusion that in order to get people to even look at your hubs, you must post in these forums. It may help get a few more fans, but if it doesn't, what have you lost. I've come here to hubber's...

Ok, here goes. I rarely get involved in the forums, I guess I am a little on the shy side. I have been here almost 2 years now and have published over 80 hubs. I have only had 2 ever unfeatured and have...

Not sure if this is an original idea but how about creating a Hub Club? It can be like a book club where we will read 5 Hubs of anyone who joins. Read the Hubs and leave some comments along with the endng "Hub Club...

How does someone get 100 plus fans in a short period of time? I like having fans but I wonder what it means when a hubber adds hundreds of fans in only one day or less? You know what I mean you see you have a new...
