What do you think is the most effective thing you can do to increase your number

    What do you think is the most effective thing you can do to increase your number of "Followers"?

    I know that it takes time for Followers to discover new Hubbers, but I'm wondering if you feel there is something you've done that you are sure had a great impact on increasing the number of Followers you have?

    Hi Dr. I found that by simply asking and answering questions, joining in discussions in the forums, Hub Hopping and commenting on Hubs, that people follow me. Oh, and of course by writing Hubs that are worthy of being featured.

    I pretty much agree with what Bronwyn J Hansen stated although I must admit rounding up followers has never been a primary goal of mine. I've always strived to write quality hubs and offer advice on subjects that I have some expertise in. Having said that I think asking questions and responding to questions along with posting quality comments on other hubs often leads to people checking out your profile and content.
    There are other people who use the strategy of following a ton of people with the hopes that those people will turn around and follow them back. I've had people "follow me" and when I clicked on their activity I can see they just started following 100 people in an hour or two. Clearly they had not read anything I'd written. Very often these people will un-follow you within a week or two.
    A writer writes. You don't want to get caught up on the number of followers as much as you want to get number of views of your hubs and ad clicks for Google and Amazon. You accomplish that by writing quality hubs, promoting yourself through Facebook and Twitter as well as using optimal SEO. Best of luck!

    One of the nice things about HP, unlike many other sites, is that the chase for followers is really not that important. It does help you get more notice for your hubs by other hubbers, but you should concentrate on getting organic traffic from the search engines. As others have written, participating on HP, writing good hubs, and helping others will naturally lead to more followers.
