Now I haven't written much hubs so I don't expect a horde of fans, however about when should I expect a decent amount of fans assuming my hubs are of some use.
To gain fans, the best thing to do is participate in the forums (I don't mean to show off your Hubs, I mean to discuss general topics, ask for help etc). People will see your name, wonder who you are and go check out your Hubs.
It's important to realise that having fans has very little to do with making money, if that's your objective. Fans mainly come from within the Hubber community - it's a bit of a mutual admiration society! It's the people from outside HubPages who will click on ads and generate revenue for you, and they are much less likely to become fans.
Become fan of other Hubbers. A lot of them will become fan of you in return. Of course you have to be a real person to achieve this (I am not saying that you are not, only speaking in general). For example, put something in your profile about you first, comment in Hubs that you have read, continue publishing Hubs. And as Marisa has said participate in the forum.
A lot of people go through the lists and become a fan of anyone, in hopes of gaining a reciprocal fans. This is fine, but as others have said, it doesn't mean much.
If I read hubs of someone who does a good job of expressing their thoughts or information I wlll usually post a fan mail WITH a MESSAGE. If I don't know anything about the hubber and have not read any of their hubs-- how can I call myself a fan? I rarely join a fan club without a comment-- what's the point?
If I find a NEW hubber with a good hub-- I am always pleased to post a message of encouragement or praise. It's good for them and it will show up on the first page of their fans-- and that is also good for me.
I'm really, really bad about leaving comments on the fan page. I write slow, and by the time I think of something to say, it's likely I'll forget to fan them in the first place.
But if I do fan someone, it's because I've read at least 2 Hubs that I enjoy (unless it's a really good first-and-only Hub). I'll try to do better on the comment thing, though.
Good, thoughtful comments on other folks' Hubs are also helpful for making yourself known and earning more fans.
yah not necessarily you have tons of hubs.. but for as i know joining forums could help you gaining some fans here!

What if you just go down the list of all hubbers and automatically fan everyone. I know in a lot of sites this is considered a negative thing to do and it will drop your reputation or whatever. What happens to fan whores on hubpages? Someone who knows please tell.

Is there some trick to getting fans? I don't mean like to trick peopl into being a fan but rather a legitimate path to find interested people and point them to my hubs. I think I write with some authority about my subject matter but it doesn't seem to be attracting anyone. What's the trick?Thanks.

Can someone tell me what the right "behavior" is? When someone sign on as my fan what should I do??? Do I thank them? Do I acknowledge the new fan? Do I become their fan in return? In the past I've become a fan of many hubbers once I read an article that I enjoy. Then it becomes my...

I would like to be able to see or know why another hubber has become a fan. I know, I know...Just ask, but that hasn't worked as of yet. Anyone else feel the same way or am I just a loose screw? Maybe a "Which hub influenced you to become a fan?" requirement...
