    Yes, in some ways. My followers have began to rocket up a little in over the past month and therefore I get more viewers. However, this also means you need the right and good content. Another point to add if the fact that with more followers there is more chance they will share your pages on sits like Twitter and FB. Thereagain, more traffic, even from non-hubbers. More traffic = more money.

    I think what really really affects your earning is showing up on the first page of a google search. Even if you have a few followers but get a large number of organic views from google, your earnings will shoot up. If you want to make money from your hubs, make sure they rank high on google searches for your keywords.

    Having a large number of followers on HubPages does NOT boost your earnings.  I have almost 4000 followers.  If you actually manually go through all the profiles, a surprising amount of them have zero Hubs and are inactive.  Of the ones that do have Hubs and are still active on the site, most do not comment on Hubs and fellow Hub users are the least likely to click on Hub ads as that might endanger their AdSense accounts.

    In my nearly six years on HubPages, my earnings have been most strongly boosted when I have lots and lots of organic traffic from the search engines.

    While not the most important factor, I think having followers does help. They see your hubs when they first come out, they have chosen to follow you so are more likely to be interested in you hubs, and if only a few of them actually read and/or comment or share your hub, that's better than no shares.

    While maybe not affecting my earnings too much having encouragement from my followers keeps me going while waiting for the google traffic to come. I appreciate my followers very much.

    I think having a large following is good, to a certain extent at HubPages. Fellow writers will see you published a hub if they receive the daily notification emails from HP. If they see your title and are interested, they will click to read your hub. They may share too, which increases your chances of reads. In the long run, Google ultimately is where the traffic lays for a longer time period.
