My fellow hubbers,
What am I doing wrong?
I post loads of hubs - post quite a bit in the forums - however, I've only got 26 fans...
In the mean time I see people with only 9 or 10 hubs with hundreds of fans...
What is their secret?
I am rather confused.
you should read lots of other hubs... i think it is what you write which makes you popular? sometimes the title says it all, dont fret, you will have more fans as soon as time goes by,i think if you continue to join forums etc, people will notice about it (your thoghts etc)
maybe I can change my pics too? lol
You have only been writing again on this account for a couple of weeks, of course people who have had 9 or 10 hubs will have more.... if they have had months worth of readership.
Somehow i managed. I don't fan spree and I have more than 100
I'm going to see if a change of picture will bring some in
If they like your work ,they will fan you and often peole read a comment on the forum youve made and add you for that reason too...alternatively add someone and they may add you back.
Its not all about one area though , more a combination of all.
Personally I try to improve my hubs , content ,quality etc , because ultimately its your work that improves your whole persona ( well thats my theory )
Good Luck and welcome back by the way
If only I could remember how I did it in the first place...
I love poetry n now a fan. Just drop into the forums now n again, say a word here n there. Promote your hubs outside of HP in signatures, forums, RSS, etc., people will notice. Got to get noticed
I've started advertising it on my facebook page - however, unfortunately where I come from the majority of people are only interested in drugs, sex and raveing. Noone is really interested in the inner workings of the human mind. Ah well...
They are not the only ones that exist in our world though lots of people out there online. Give yourself time n just keep writing. People will notice.
Don't worry about it! Keep writing what you enjoy and do an excellent job at it. While you may not rack up fans, you will get read, preferably by those outside of HP.
Oh, and the higher you hub score, the more you will get fanned by those on a fanning spree! (Don't expect them to read tho.)
It breaks my heart when people do that - ideally I want people who are actualy fans to fan up. My hubscore is gradually rising - should be 90ish by the end of the day since I have just posted a huge hub I've been working on for a while and am working on another essay now.
Unfortunatley I have found myself unable to write anymore poetry since I found my close friends and family reading it to eachother behind my back - it crippled my creativity.
You should write poetry ! I'm a big fan of Afro Kid !
It doesn't take a genius to work out that friends and family are going to find your poetry after you chose to promote it on your facebook page. Surely you cannot dangle the carrot in front of them and then be upset when they take a chomp. Why not set up a second login, and continue to write under that, until you can face posting to this one again?
Ah, its not so much that which annoys me. It was my parents nabbing my portfolio whilst I was away and showing it to all their friends. Alot of my stuff is vulgar - rude - about drugs, sex and all that jazz. That was the key issue.
Not to mention you lot, on here, don't feel the need to be nice about my work. You can slag it off all you want and offer constructive critism. There is nothing worse when you're aunt has read one of your poems about sex and congratulates you on it.
All my poetry is in my portfolio - only a small selection is online. The small selection I don't mind people reading.
Tantrum explained to you - Charisma.
That equates to all round style.
Nothing to do with your avator... except I imagine it is conspicuous by it's absence from other's hub comments that would indicate that you may be interested in more than just yourself
Don't take my word for it... I'm a kiwi!
Haha, I didn't actually expect the picture to help. I just thought a change was welcome.
On the plus side, since this mornings hubs five more people have fanned up.
Ya profile page is kinda over the top just my opinion ,but whoaaa lol
Haha fair enough. I shall edit it a bit then. Cheers.
Gotta Love the Irony of the Question eh Kiwi?
How important are legions of fans from within the hub pages?
I have the same issue, but I think over-stressing it will make things worse.
You should try visiting the forums and reading others hubs and leaving comments and feedback and maybe even joining someone else fan club. I don't think it can hurt. creativeone59

I've been on here for 9 months and followed all the advice from the learning centre, forums and hubs from the best hubbers. I earned the first $24.00 in the first month and I'm only $1.00 ahead for the next eight. What am I doing wrong? All help will be greatfully received.

By browsing around, it seems like everyone else on here is making so much money. I'm still relatively new, and I promise I looked back in the forums at what everyone else has said in response to these questions before.But I can't seem to make anything at all! I've been linking on...

What is it that I am doing wrong? I am barely getting any traffic to my hubs. If you can provide me with constructive critism please do.

I have posted seven hubs with interesting topics accompanied by images and links etc. Yet I've not even come close to making 50 cents... What am I doing wrong? Do people really make money on hubpages?
by Eric Dockett 5 years ago
Over the past two+ years I’ve really put a lot of effort into learning SEO and how to produce content that has some hope of success here on HubPages. It was hard work and frustrating at times, but it really paid off. So let me preface this by saying by no means am I dissatisfied with my...
