I visited your Hubs the other day, liked what I saw and Fanned you. I'm sure your Fan Base will build up soon and SimeyC has given you some good advice.
You need to make fans by posting in the forums or other people's hubs. If you do a search in the forums, there are about a zillion posts on this that offer up better advice than I have! Good luck!
There are several ways to get fans:
1) Create decent hubs - from the couple I looked at, you seem to have good content and decent hubs.
2) Comment on other people's hubs - don't just say 'nice hub' but read the content and make a decent comment.
3) Be selective with the people you become fans of, and constantly comment on their hubs - they'll usually become your fan.
4) Become visible - post questions, answer comments on your hubs, answer questions, be active on the forums - you'll soon get a following.
5) Try and get a hub in the 'hot' list - this can be difficult, but pick on your best hub and promote it heavily on the web to get a lot of traffic etc. - you'll find that a lot of readers will become your fan mainly due to the visibility of this one hub.
Well, I also do not have many fans. But why do you want to have many fans in the first place?
Actually, you have a point there. Can anyone tell me why we have 'fans'? Is it an ego thing or does it actually have an impact on our score/rating?
I dunno. But I'm a bit uncomfortable with the whole idea of "fanning" (and I'm not saying that because I haven't got many fans - honest!) A lot of people seem to go in for a tit-for-tat "you fan me and I'll fan you" arrangement, which seems a bit pointless. Reminds me of working in an office and everyone sending each other Christmas cards even though they saw each other every day.
The whole fanning system is, bottom line, a way for hubbers to kkep up on other hubbers they like to read. If I want to know when a hubber I like has produced a new hub, I simply check my fan list.
Of course, there are those who use fanning for different reasons, to support a friend/fellow hubber, boost a hubber's self esteem maybe, in hopes of getting a reciprocal fan. Some just think fanning sprees are fun I guess...who knows. But, having a lot of fans or a little, won't, in itself, raise your score. Famming or fan spamming sprees WILL, however drastically lower your score.
And you can't forget that fans can bring views and allow others a chance to see you. When someone fans you,it shows in hubtivity--so your name is seen. Someone may click your name to see what the fuss is about. Secondly, when you become a fan of a hubber, a short list of people they are fans of appears. If your name is on the list of a hubber I like, I may check you out.
So, they aren't pointless but should be used wisely. And, don't worry about how many fans you have--that number will undoubtedly grow as hubbers become more familiar with you. Just stay active!!
Sincere fans tell you what they liked as well as disliked about your writing, this means you can step by step improve and hone your writing skills and develop your ability to appeal to many types of readers, or choose not to as you wish, but it's like a thermometer that helps you gage when your work is hot, and when it's not so hot...point is...you have the freedom to revise or update at any time, which is one of the things that is soooo great about the Hubpages Community.
Don't forget others outside of HP will fan you also your GA will show email subscribers too. don't despair, it takes time
you haven't been here that long, it takes time, also the reason you want fans?? some here use it for a popularity ego thing, but you will gain fans by good writing, participating and contributing to the community.
don't ask for them, that's way tacky IMO.
