What method do you use to gain followers?
I know some people will follow a ton of people in the hope they will follow back, i'm not one of them but how do you gain followers? Any unique methods you have? other than writing AWESOME hubs.
Not really a method as such, but showing genuine interest in someone else's work, and taking the time to comment is a must! Therefore, when they follow you and you follow them you already have a good relationship, and some interests which are in common!
I think writing hubs which are interesting enough that other people will want to read what you write is a good way to get followers. I don't follow everyone and I don't know that everyone should follow me either... just the interested ones. It makes for a better gathering of comrads when people hang out with people they truly enjoy.
I can't say I've ever actually used a "method" to gain followers. I don't chase anyone down, I just seem to randomly pick up folks who appreciate the weird stuff I write about.
I think it is more important to have a few followers that actually read your hubs than to have lots of them that aren't really interested.
I read a few hubs each day and comment on the ones I find interesting. I like to read hubbers I am not familiar with, expand my horizons. I participate with questions, comments, and to a lesser degree, forum. I gain a few followers each week.
I only follow others if they have several hubs I enjoy. I hope they follow me for the same reason.
I have never intentionally worked at getting followers. To me, they are just something that takes care of itself over time if you make Hubs that other site users really like.
I don't think there's a certain method to get followers. I read a lot of hubs and if someone writes hubs that interests me I may follow them because I like their style of writing or their subject matter. I don't worry so much about gaining followers because I know followers will come as my writing improves.
I've never done anything to gain followers. They just build up once someone has been on the site for awhile.
I answer questions and leave comments! My intention isn't to gain followers though, (although this can definitely help) it's just because I enjoy writing, reading and sharing my thoughts with others. That's what HubPages is all about, right?
By answering questions. If people see that you made an intelligent answer and know something about a particular topic that they are interested in, then they may follow.

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're following?Do you guys really think this makes people want to read and comment on...

I've just reached a landmark of 100 followers (yay, me!), which might not seem like much, but it's built up pretty slowly over time, and I've made sure to interact with everyone I'm following regularly (106 now), checking out new hubs, etc. It made me consider an interesting question:How do...

I am fairly new here, but what I've learned is that most people follow to get followers. (I was that person). What I discovered was that, if I follow you I am required to read your hubs when published.My suggestion; don't follow to be followed. Follow because you genuinely are interested in the...

Hello,I've been working hard over the past six months per hubpages and have what I think are a number of nice, interesting hubs. They are getting read quite a bit but few other hubbers choose to follow me. I sometimes will run a query of a topic I'm interested in (like the singer Neil...

I presently follow 1,975 hub members. My followers are 1,436. I remember hearing something about it being best to unfollow those that are not active on your hubs or that hold no further interest for you.So, I've been doing this. My question is: Have I been mislead or am I...

I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and maybe it is the way it goes but I think it is disrespectful. I have commented on a...
