Which option is better?

    Which option is better?

    1. Follow other hubbers so that they will follow you up.
    2. Write good contents so that they follow you, expecting more later.

    Writing good content so that they follow you because no matter how many people you follow they will follow you only if you have written something worth spending time for.

    you can take both... you write good quality hubs and at the same time follow some hubbers you know worth following, not just for the sake following someone and follow you in return....

    I would suggest doing both, personally. Both factors play a role.

    Take it from me, option two is definitely better. Getting quality followers is what you want and by quality I mean people who read your hubs and leave insightful comments. These persons usually follow you because they like your work and not because you follow them. Following people who you are not interested in following can only hurt you in the long run and hurt your personal author score.

    When following someone you must be prepared to read that person's hubs. You need also to follow persons who are active on HP. If they have not been publishing anything or active in questions or forums then you are wasting your time.

    Write quality interesting content and followers will come. I know, I have been there. When people read your work and follow you, they will not unfollow you because you don't follow them back. People who do that are not really interested in your work and you don't want that.

    Personally I only follow people whose work I either have an interest in or can appreciate in some way, even if they follow me first. I would recommend writing good quality content anyway as that is the point of the website, but check out some hubs on topics you are interested in & follow those writers who you like best, you could even leave them some fan mail too to further demonstrate your admiration for their work.
