Do you ever follow new Hubbers who have few hubs or followers?
Today I came across a really great Hub after checking out a Hubber who left a couple intelligent comments on my Hubs. He only had one hub and no followers, but I was impressed with everything I saw and decided to follow him.
Do you ever follow new Hubbers with almost no track record?
I do sometimes. It depends on how new they are, and if they have at least one hub or not. The hub doesn't always need to be good for me, though it helps if it is. I look at it like this: Part of the reason I became so prolific on hubpages, was because it is such a welcoming community. Even when I only had a few hubs, there were people interested in finding out what else I knew or had to say. That's a big boost of encouragement, especially for anyone whose already taken the time to read and comment on a hub of yours
It simply depends on whether I like their hubs or not. I have done this and would do it again, there are lots of interesting topics and some people will draw your interest more than others.
Even if I don't follow them, I vote and leave an encouraging comment.
Yes, if they are active and their hubs seem interesting. Some 0 hub folks I am leery of because it seems there are signups for the sole sake of scraping and spamming though.
Yes, DrP, I like to encourage new writers and have made some good friends along the way!
Most of the time I'll check their profile if they're following me and leaving comments. If they don't yet have any hubs, I generally wait until they publish a few before I follow them. If I'm interested in the topics about which they write or they get me interested because they include a lot of info that gets me hooked, I'll follow them.

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're following?Do you guys really think this makes people want to read and comment on...

I've just reached a landmark of 100 followers (yay, me!), which might not seem like much, but it's built up pretty slowly over time, and I've made sure to interact with everyone I'm following regularly (106 now), checking out new hubs, etc. It made me consider an interesting question:How do...

Is there such a thing as following to many hubbers.Do you read all Hubbers you follow?

How do some hubbers get so many followers in such a short space of time. Okay - some people write brilliant hubs on interesting topics but it still puzzles me. I expect someone will come back and say that I should have read something somewhere that makes it obvious - so apologies if...

Is there a way to generate more followers on Hubpages? I try to find a new Hubber at least once a week to follow. I read their articles, comment if I have something to say and then follow that Hubber. I was just wondering if this was the only way to encourage more Hubbers to follow each other.
