      You should be more active within the community. This involves posting on the hubs, reading and rating other hubs. Also, I find that if you find a user on the forums that has content you enjoy, if you follow them they are quite likely to follow you too.

      As far as HubScore goes, you need to write longer hubs more frequently. Also, by including links to other hubs in your hubs, this will improve your HubKarma, which has an influence on your HubScore.

      Hope I helped out smile

      Why do you want followers? 

      I see you've come to HubPages because you haven't been successful making money by blogging - join the club, a lot of us arrived for the same reason!  However, if you want to make money on HubPages, followers are irrelevant.  Followers are other Hubbers and they won't click on your ads.  You need external traffic - people who find your Hubs on Google.

      My tip - ask yourself what you know about, that people are searching for.  Write Hubs about that.  At least 400 words per Hub and preferably double that.  Or consider what products people are looking for and write about them. 

      Another tip - don't waste time writing about how to make money online, backlinking, Adsense etc, especially if you don't know much about it yet.  That market is already flooded!

    Hi Shaekelly, nice to meet you, I have found that active participation in the forums, will eventually get you more followers, as long as you don't put anybody off.

    As far as raising your score, the more good hubs you right, and active participation your score will improve. 

    Which means adding more hubs at least one or two a week. Read other peoples hubs and commenting on them.

    Just being more active will help allot, hope this helps.

    hi, just read a couple of your hubs
    just a suggestion.... we do hubs not blogs
    your hubs seem to promise much but dont deliver as they are a bit short- perhaps that is only my opinion but it would be really nice to see you develop your ideas
    i have put the follow button on you to see how you do develop your ideas in the future
    good luck hubbing- it is really good fun

    Hi shaekelly,

    I think you have good images and great topics. I read a couple of your hubs. The only thing I noticed was that the couple that I read were a little short, but word count is still a debatable issue here on HP. I also noticed that a few words were cut, like someone does when they are text chatting. words like u instead of you and can instead of cancer, etc.. You may also want to use the link capsule or at least hyperlink the sites you used for references.

    As far as followers, You may want to be more active either in the forums or on other hubs as mentioned by others.

    Hubscore seems to be based on total community involvement. That means a person might only have a dozen hubs but still have a high-90's hubscore because they are active in the Hubpages community. That means starting and participating in topics on the forums, asking and answering questions in the "Answers" section, and upvoting, downvoting, flagging, and commenting on various hubs.

      I don't think it is all about being active in the community. I think it has to do with hubscores as well. By the way, a person may write many hubs and have low hubscores, and another person may have only a few hubs (showing) with very high scores, and that may cause the higher profile score. It is not always about the quantity of hubs that determines the profile score. Hubscores are based on things like keywords, traffic,popularity and quality of the hub. Profile scores are based on hubscores and community involvement.

    hello shaekelly. Let me give you some free information though not wanted.
    ~getting more follower won't help you making money so you don't need to get followers if your target is making some money rather than being social.
    ~hubberscore and hubscore have hardly anything to do with income. Any score is a good score if you get traffic. But the "any score" should be over 40 for hubs and over 75 to become "do follow".
    ~hubs are not blogs. Hub should contain at least 250 words though a quality hub should not be under 500 words.


    ~when you write quality hubs you will get at least a reasonable number of followers, your author score will go over 75 and your hubs will at least score over 60 and more follower and score are always moral boosts.


    ~write more, write quality hubs of a reasonable length so that people like them and follow you. Blog or magazine style hub and only 6 of them in 11month in not good enough.
    ~increase the communication with the community, make more comments in other hubbers hubs, participate in the forum.
    ~sometimes if you follow someone they follow you back but spam following will not help much.

    I have two hubs on getting followers. You can check them out.

    Welcome to forum.

      Hey, I'm a Hub newbie, too. I'm listening. This is the first I have seen actual hub length specifically recommended.

    I agree with CASE1WORKER your hubs promise much but don't deliver because they are to short 300-500 word count is best.
    Be active in the forums, leave comments on other hubs,leave a rating for those hubs and hub hopping will help to up your score.

    Hi shaekelly
    You say that you want to increase your hub score and followers. Well, there is only one way to do this. Write more hubs with quality content and interesting topics. This should boost your hub score and as people read your hubs like what they came across chances are high that they will follow you.

    If your goal is making money, I don't think it really matters how many followers you have or what your hubscore is. I may be wrong, but I don't think traffic that is gotten from Hubpages is counted as traffic on Google. The views I show are from Hubpages aren't showing up on Google.

    I might be wrong about this, but my Google numbers are always lower than my Hubpage numbers by a large amount.
