HOw do I get them? I see people with 50 hubs and hundreds of followers. Maybe my work isnt of the same quality, hasnt hit a niche market? Is dull... is only of interest to me?
I have to work on more fans/followers? Or do I just plug away and work at my content? Whats the answer?
Work on your content. Why does it matter how many followers you have? I've never been concerned with that number. Begging for followers can be a turn off for some people (it is to me) - just my two cents...
There are users who have hundreds of hubs but only a handful of followers.
If you're seen often in the forums or around the site you'll get followers.
And I find that at least 60% of my followers probably never comment (maybe never even read) any of my hubs.
Followers never bring money or any other compensation except an occasional comment on your hubs and very rarely, maybe a backlink.
They're an after effect of the work, not a reason for it.
WryLit said it exactly: "They're an after effect of the work, not a reason for it."
I've never worried about followers - if they enjoy what I write, great, but followers don't generate income.
My philosophy: If you write good, meaningful, interesting content then the reader is going to hang around for more. I try to write each article as if was intended to be a masterpiece. It doesn't always work out that way, but what I hit publish, I know I'm satisfied.
Even more, when I see those number steadily increasing through analytics, I know that I must have done something right.
Don't worry about getting followers - it's a nice pat on the back occasionally, but as Wry said, they are an after effect. Your work is something to be proud of, regardless of how many followers you have.
thats true, my work has been a bit sporatic due to life happening. I am wanting to settle down and really work at this. Wanting outcomes before content! Read Zuzziebees (spelling might be a bit out) and could immediately see the quality of her layout and content.
It about improving and honing, not numbers!

As your followers increase to hundreds, how do you decide which ones work to read and comment upon?Out of the hundreds that follow you since it is well nigh impossible to read each one's work.

Hello,I am new here in HubPages. Just signed up for an account a few days ago and I barely got any followers. I would like to know some tips on how to increase my number of followers aside of course, from writing a great hub and following other hubbers.

I'm looking at Tumblr for my photography and wondered if anyone has had positive results using it for traffic here and other places you work?

I just checked my email and saw I had notifications that I had six new followers. I checked all these and found none of them have any hubs and all joined 4 hours ago. All are shown as following between 80 and 150 people. Has anyone else noticed this sudden spike in followers?
