    Being as active on hubpages as you can is a good way to attract more readers. The more articles you read and comment on, the more people become aware of your presence on the site, and go to check out what you've written. I find that the days I have time to be more active on the site, I attract far more readers to my hubs (though it's hard for me to be as active as I would like, working full time and being a part time student...).

    I know some people I follow sees like they end up beginning to add more and more people. I don't if this is "pandering" or if it is them adding people they actually enjoy reading or both.

    I take the approach that if you leave a comment and end up.following me, I will return the favor generally.Also if I find an enganging hub and writer I will also do the same following them because they provide good articles.

    As far as.gaining more.followers? I have created my own facebook page so I can post my hubs.there. Currently Ihave three followers, all from my own friends list of 197, i only got three to follow. sad  Though I did warn them of my political views being libertarine when i made page and posted about it.

    The best Iadvice I can say is learn about keywording. If your title doesn't seem to be attracting readers change it. I will begin changing titles after the first.week and keep on changing them if need be.

    Also I am typing on my nookcolor so that is why there are some mistakes.

    It does take some time to attract more readers but you have to be patient and make sure that you are following people that you really enjoy reading and taking the time to follow. If you randomly follow a bunch of people, yea you will have the numbers but do you have people on your list that are taking the time to actually read your work because that is what is going to determine how successful you are on Hubpages, good luck.

      Thank you Ms. Jane.  It's a dilemma, this thing called time. I really enjoy reading the material found here but the balance between wife, children, job, writing, and reading, plus Life. It makes it a challenge.  How much time do you spend "reading?

      I agree about the time. I was reading all the hubs of people I'm connected with, but there was not time left for anything else, so now I'm only doing it occasionally, or I'll never get anything else done. Not good, I know, but how else can we cope?

    I think the best way must be to visit other peoples' pages, and hope that they return the complement.

    It would be nice to be able to attract visitors and followers purely through the quality of your work. One has to live in the real world however. There are countless thousands of webpages out there, and you have to make yourself known or there's no reason why anyone should pick out your pages in preference to someone elses'. Once they've found you, hopefully the quality of your work will bring them back again and again, but they have to find you in the first place.

    On principle, I won't 'follow' others just for the sake of getting them to follow me, but I will try to find articles I like or can contribute to, and those I will certainly comment upon, and hope that maybe the hubber will reciprocate.

      When you do more than one hub on a topic, say a hub on fishing rods and a hub on fishing lures, make sure that when you "suggest links" that you choose phrases that are in your other hub so that your hub will pop up as a link choice.
