    I need help increasing my followers.

    Ok. What am I doing wrong?  I see other hubs and writers have far fewer hubs than me but lotw more followers.  I must be missing something.

    Read and leave comments at three hubs of a hubber, then follow them.  Repeat this process over and over and they will follow you in return.  The only way this won't work is if the quality or quantity of your hubs are lacking, which I am about to check out.

    May I suggest a Hub I published a little while back? I have written down the things I have done over time to get followers and be noticed on HubPages:

    Do you don't mention how many people you're following. When you follow people they're more likely to return the favor. You should also try commenting on other people's hubs. Building a rapport with other writers is the best way to build a following and really helps you to network. Hope this helps. Btw, I'll follow you now smile

    I follow people I find in forums like reccommend another hubbers hubs or games , Answer section as long as I enjoy reading their hubs.
    Do some hubhopping and leave comments so they come and check you out.
    However you really want people from other sources to read your work so use facebook, twitter & stumble upon .
    Click on your share button on the bottom of your hub for ideas.

    I looked over some of your work, and one recommendation that I would make would be photographs. Something more than a title is needed to draw a person’s interest to your article. I also agree with most of the advice given so far. Just keep active, make comments, and answer questions.  If people like what they read, or agree with your opinion they are more likely to check out what you’ve written.

    You seem to have a lot of work on a lot of varied topics. A lot of them look interesting, but the title photograph is your profile image.

    I concur with what others have said.
    If you want inflow, you need to outflow.

    Follow and comment, and you'll get results.

    I would also like to endorse J,S, Matthew's hub, because it really is full of great advice.

    It's not what you're doing wrong, it's what you're not doing. Have you been leaving insightful comments that are at least a short paragraph long that show you actually read a hub some else wrote?

    Are you responding to the people who comment on your hubs with more than just "thanks"? Have you been able to answer any of the questions posted by others? How about taking part in the forums?

    You can also increase your followers by using the title tuner and choosing to write about topics that bring in at least decent traffic. Another tip is to use your social media profiles, do you post on your fb page or your twitter profile?

    In the beginning it isn't so easy. It takes time. Marketing is just as important as writing good material.

    Write and publish Hubs.Follow others and comment on their hubs.Answer questions - ask questions.
    But if you just follow someone and let it be at that point.There is not much of a point.
