Followers are other Hubbers who like your Hubs. If you take part in the forums and get to know people, or leave comments on other people's Hubs, they'll get curious about you and check out your Hubs - if they like them, they'll join up.
Cosette, Misty, and Marisa all have spot on advice.
First you need to develop a prophetic ideology that people will buy into, then purchase some land in South America where you can build your compound for all your followers...Ummmmm.... Oh..I thought you were starting a cult and needed followers... My Bad... Go with what everyone else is saying it might work out better for you!!
i can't speak for anyone else, but i usually follow someone if i like their hubs or their forum posts, or find something about them that interests me. HubPages has a thing on people's profiles that says "Invite people to join your fan club" but i've never used it. i'd say just let people come to you. when i was new i had no followers at all, then one day i had ten and i was all excited. i would see people with 50 fans and go 'wow, i'll never have 50 fans' but one day, i did
so good luck.
They come on their own as they read and enjoy your hubs. As long as you publish quality and also make an effort to read and comment on other people's hubs, plus posting to a degree in the forums, you won't need to do anything else other than watch the number of followers you have rising week by week.
Hello I'm new to hubpages. I have 4 followers and I'm not sure how to reply to them. Can I do that from my hub page or do I have to submit a comment from their hubpages. I'd like to respond to all my followers. thanks for any help
You can respond in a number of ways...
Become a follower of theirs and leave them follow/fan mail.
Visit their profile pages, read their Hubs, and make a comment to a Hub that interests you.
Use the email contact feature on the profile page to send an email.
Hope that helps. It will get easier and more understandable as you go!
create good hubs. If you build it they will come. It's slow for everyone to build up.
But welcome malonge. we're glad your here.
I am about to fan you because I know how hard a question that was to ask publicly.
Now happy hubbing

I was curious if any hub members have experienced these “ghosts” on HP. These are individuals who register with HP, but do not enter any information in their profile or publish any hubs. They register to follow only one hubber's activity (yours), but do not post any comments to your...

Dear staff, is there anything that can be done to the feed where I can choose not to receive notice of hubs shared by other hubbers? There are people who share every hub they read. If I want to read a hub or follow someone I will. I don't need to see all those hubs of people I don't even know in my...

I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and maybe it is the way it goes but I think it is disrespectful. I have commented on a...

I presently follow 1,975 hub members. My followers are 1,436. I remember hearing something about it being best to unfollow those that are not active on your hubs or that hold no further interest for you.So, I've been doing this. My question is: Have I been mislead or am I...
