Is it wrong to ask for someone to be my hub follower?

    Is it wrong to ask for someone to be my hub follower?

    Just wondering if it is again TOS on HP to ask someone in a discussion or forum here to follow me? I have written only 3 hubs only, since I have wiped out all of my short and thin contents that was posted way, way, way ago.

    I do not see anything in the Terms of Service which would prohibit this.  If you want a particular hubber to follow you because you have a common interest and like their input I would go ahead.  I do not know how to ask someone to follow anonymously; nor do I know how to direct a particular hubber to follow you in a discussion or forum short of putting their name in the title of the forum and hope they look into the forum.

    As long as you do it tastefully, and not spam or coerce the person, I don't see anything wrong.

    Hubpages has changed a lot since I login here 4years ago. Like A LOT, and I don't wanna go over and waste my entire day reading their new TOS and stuff like that to find one single information that I could just jump over here and ask fellow hubbers.

    So thank you James and Cedric smile

    If you write a lot of good hubs on a topic then the followers will come. You don't have enough articles for someone to know if you would be good to follow. If I follow you because I'm interested in your traveling tips and you never write about traveling again then I'm going to unfollow. But if you have four or five articles about traveling then I can expect you have a lot of knowledge and are likely to write more.

    So write some more hubs and then worry about followers. You're better off trying to attract traffic from google because those people are likely to click on the ads that will make you money.
