Do hubbers who attract 1000 plus readers do this from hub pages alone or other webtivity?
I am happy with my slowly but surely increasing following here on the hub. I hope to attract more and look forward to following more hubbers. I am amazed when I see hubbers who have thousands of followers with only a few hubs more than I have written
Followers????? Who cares about followers if Google isn't sending traffic?
Not just important, but CRUCIAL. People act like this is some sort of social networking site. This is not a social network or blogging site. This site, Hubpages.com, is a commercial site that lets people go overly far with being social.
Well, having more followers leads to more Google traffic right? And worst case scenario, having followers won't do anything. I can't imagine it hurting your traffic. It seems worth it to have followers who can ripple-effect your work out there.
My first follower is still an amazement to me! As I have written over time, more followers have joined the first one and I'm grateful to each one of them for I know it means something, just not quite sure what.
The one thing I do know is the writing is what I enjoy and writing more keeps things going.
It will be interesting to see the comments that come in on this question.
I doubt it. They must be doing SEO and social media promotion of their hubs to increase page views and traffic.
I get most of my views from Google and social networks but I get most of my comments and votes from hubbers. You have to market to get views Hubpages alone isn't enough.
If you've been on the site for a long time and you write Hubs that are of interest to other site users, you tend to accumulate a lot of followers.
No social networkings or SEO is required. You just have to write stuff that other users of this site want to read, whatever that may be.
"Followers" are always other Hubbers. They're not necessarily readers, though - many Hubbers follow because they think it will get them more attention, not because of genuine interest.
I'm sure many of my followers have never bothered to read any of my Hubs!
You do not make money from followers - you make money by attracting readers from outside HubPages. So don't stress too much about followers
I think you need followers who are interested in reading your hubs and sharing them not just on Hubpages but on Twitter,Facebook and whatever other sites they are on.I only follow people who write hubs I am interested in. It also helps to write good informative hubs that will be picked up during a Google search to bring traffic in from outside Hubpages.
I was surprised at how much my hubs are read. I share with facebook and twitter, but most of my readers come from HubPages.
You can see where your readers come from in your account. It is always helpful to have other "webtivity," I was surprised how many of my friends on Facebook read my stuff.
It totally depends on the content of the hub. If the content of the hub is intresting it might attract the 1000 plus reader from the hubpages only and if content is not so good then other web sources can be used for reaching that 1000 plus mark
It depends on the content of the hub really. I get most of my views from off of hubpages but I do share my hubs on facebook and pinterest and that brings in a few more views.

Since I joined HP there has been a constant battle against the rise and fall of traffic. We are often encouraged to tune our titles, edit our content and generally try to improve our Hubs. Now with the threat of having Hubs unfeatured, as well as the new quality assessment process taking place...

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...

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic plunges for many hubbers? See link...

If we pump up our use of social media, i.e., marketing our articles more, will it help increase our traffic much? Or won't it make much difference because we are more dependent upon organic traffic? Something tells me we might have to wait out this drought. What say you?

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...

Hi folks, any suggestions on the best way to attract more followers. I'm not looking for any easy short cuts but just what are the best methods in your experience. It's just that I've noticed a few Hubbers with only a small number of Hubs published yet they have hundreds of followers. How do they...
