      I would suggest you are not doing anything wrong. It takes time to get fans, and you are probably about average for that many hubs. smile

      Write the interesting hubs and participate in forums.

      The only thing you're doing wrong is worrying about not having enough fans.

      Same old question. Same old question!!!!!!!!!

      There are over a million hubs talking about that!!!!!! Just search for them!

      Doing this is wrong. Write more hubs and post in different threads. Show your personality! Welcome smile

      It takes time, but I fanned you as soon as I discovered you.
      Hang in there and keep writing. You'll get fans.

    Post on the forums more often so people can get to know you. It takes time to get fans, though. Right now, you only have three hubs, but as you write more, you'll probably get more fans. You're off to a great start, though!

    Just be patient and keep writing. I don't have that many fans yet either. It takes time for people to get to know you and your writing.

    Just keep writing, its that simple. The more hubs you write, the higher the quantity of people that will find a hub by you. The higher the quantity of people that will find a hub by you = the higher quantity of people that will enjoy or relate to your work and will want to be informed when you write something else.

      That's not true. Going on a fanning spree is no good. BTW ,I never fan someone who fan me, only if I think his/her  work worthwhile.

        Does it lower your hubscore to join a lot of fan clubs or something?

        1. profile image0
          Janettaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          yes. if you fan a bunch of people in very little time, it is seen as a form of spam and spam lowers your score considerably.

          Around here, we usually refer to it as famming smile

          Janetta got there before me..... but yes. If you go on a fanning spree, this will lower your score; which is a good thing.... as fanning defeats the whole point in having a fan in the first place.

    just hang out and write ..and don't get into a hurry - I joined 4 months ago - but then got off into life and only started hubbing like 10 days ago - at first I was in a hurry and my writing wasnt the best ... but after about 6 or seven days I calmed down and resorted to the fact that it takes a bit of time -  just write and be yourself ...it'll come and its more fun that way too

    I think that it's interesting that people want loads of fans. I never check my fan score- is there a benefit?

    1. Bard of Ely profile image86
      Bard of Elyposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, there is - the more fans you have the more your hubs get potentially viewed and promoted! Also the more feedback you are likely to get and the more good friends you are likely to make!

  16. Bard of Ely profile image86
    Bard of Elyposted 8 years ago

    Posting a lot here helps and another way is to simply add other hubbers - many of them will respond by adding you back.

    bloodnlatexposted 8 years ago

    I totally agree.  You fan count reflects how many people read and enjoy your work.  It also helps you meet people that are, a lot of time, a lot like you.  It can turn into a whole social outlet.  Now your Hub Score,  That means nothing to me.

    sandwichmomposted 8 years ago

    I do not really post very often- but just read on these- so maybe I will start posting; I look at some scores and number of fans- and see no co- relation though, so I wonder if you miss a few weeks online- does your score drop?
