You can accumulate followers by participating in the forums, chatting with people and by reading and commenting on hubs.
People love comments and usually if you have something to add when you leave a comment then most likely someone will check out you. People have to know you are here, so you have to make your presence known.
You cannot simply write hubs and expect to get followers automatically. Followers are most likely hubbers and not outside readers(unless they become hubbers, such as referrals).
I hope that helped.
I'm glad that I wasn't the only person who was wondering this. Thanks Cagsil for leaving some advice. I've been getting alot lately!
Yes the best advice is above. Get your profile page done. Make it interesting, make yourself interesting. And of course the hubs you publish are important too. I go by the profile first to see who the person is and then the hubs. I only follow people of whom I know i will want to come back and read their future hubs.
You plant a seed in the soil, does it sprout on the spot? No.
You need to take care of the seed it, add manure, water etc and after quite some efforts your plant will grow.
Same here.. you need to post some unique hubs, take part in forums, take the time to "read" other hubbers content and comment on those if you feel like and then at some stage people who have same interests as yours will start following you. So followers wont just pop in after you register in here.
Hope this helps!

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...

Hello,I've been working hard over the past six months per hubpages and have what I think are a number of nice, interesting hubs. They are getting read quite a bit but few other hubbers choose to follow me. I sometimes will run a query of a topic I'm interested in (like the singer Neil...

When you are notified of a new follower, how do you respond?Do you go to their page and check them out? Do you read any of their hubs? Do you mke sure that they are legitimate? I have a lot of followers who seem to be advertisers. Hubpages are really good about weeding them out but I do see many...

Hey Hubpages Staff,I've been a member for 15 months now and have been told countless times that "Share with Followers" is NOT to be used by the author of a hub.Then why is it that the FEED is loaded with Hubbers promoting their own work?

How often do you share Hubs you read with your followers?If I read a quality Hub, well written, enjoyable or informative, I usually share it with my followers. I do not share every Hub I read. How often do you share Hubs with your followers? Do you read the Hubs that are shared...
