Should I only be following the topics that I have an interest in?
I read in a comment that in order to keep your Hub score high you should only follow so many topics? Is this true? And if so how many topics should I be following? I want to make sure I stay consistent!
Hi there! I haven't actually heard that if you follow too many topics your score goes down? I follow quite a number of topics and yes in the main it does tend to be subjects that I know and enjoy writing about frequently.
However, I also follow other topics on Hub Pages that I know very little about and never write about. The reason is that I learn a lot of useful things from these hubs and the hubbers. For example things like SEO, Keywords and all that kind of stuff - which is an absolute mystery to me for most of the time - but I have learned quite a lot by reading the work of others.
I would honestly just go ahead and follow whatever topics you enjoy and/or you feel would be useful to you.
If you regularly neglect to read the topics/Hubs you are following, your author score will go down. I avoid this by only following those that I know I will be returning to and only following other Hubbers that I know I will want to read. If I learn that a particular Hubber or topic I am following is proceeding in ways that are uninteresting to me, I "unfollow."
Hi there! Thanks for raising this question. I'm pretty new to Hubpages, and I found very interesting Marie's answer. "If you regularly neglect to read the topics/Hubs you are following, your author score will go down."
I'll keep that in mind! Thanks!
If I were a smarter man I might be able to ascertain whether this question was serious or satirical. It is my impression HubPages was a site dedicated to writers seeking a place to share their work and to gain criticism or praise. Following a topic should be based solely upon individual interest and should not affect one's score. If it does, then let my score be nil.
The best way to earn money and get traffic on Hubpages is this:
COMPLETELY IGNORE THE SCORES!
They are there mainly to stop spammers getting quality backlinks - Google can't see the scores and will not judge your content on them. And Google is where your traffic should be coming from, if you're doing things right.
It depends. I made a poem about that question because many are asking about it. I made a hub with a simple poem if want to check; http://hillymillydee.hubpages.com/hub/W … n-Hubpages
The title of the poem, "Who do I follow and who do I not"
Hi hillymillydee. Thanks for the great advice! I read your poem and got my answer. Lovely poem.

Not complaining but I don't understand hub. In an attempt to get involved, I started following a lot of Hubbers. Many of them followed me back and I am seeing a dramatic increase in viewing traffic for my hubs. I guess...
