Does having a large following on hubpages affect your earnings and why?
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.
not really unless your followers are smart and like to click your ads

Hi, everyone! I'm making $0.01 per day or even less on some days, and I have already been actively writing Hubs for about two months. I have 14 featured articles so far, I think that I'm doing all I can, or am I? Am I missing out on something? Or is this the normal learning curve and should I be...

What has your experience been. Did you notice that the more people you followed, the more people followed you? Did you ever start following people just because you wanted more followers? I have been pretty selective in the people that I follow and I am totally happy with all of the awesome Hubbers...

Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that are not published here, but elsewhere. Earnings are less than 2 bucks a month....

I've been writing here for a year now and working hard to create excellent hubs and get them known. I was just beginning to see a nice increase in traffic and shares with a little bit of income associated with that and I was delighted, thinking that I had been right to trust the process and stick...

I'm just curious to see what the average is for newcomers to earn in their first month. I know that the more hubs you have, the more impressions you'll have and potential clicks, but I'm really interested in hearing from some of the top earners, maybe to help inspire newcomers who aren't...

It is said that organic traffic (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc) should be our goal for increasing and maintaining real traffic. I've read in the forums that we shouldn't become dependent upon getting a lot of HP traffic, nor discouraged if our hubs are not being read by the HP community. However, I've...
