How can I get more comments on hubs I write?

    I have a few hubs i've written and they are mostly based on gaming, the market, possibilities of the future, but most of them stem from questions friends and family ask me about the technology market. How can I get more comments on my Hubs? I need inspiration to write hubs!

      Make sure you write engaging articles, and trust me you will get tons of comments. Also follow people, the more people you follow the more traffic you will potentially get. Also articles that get featured will be seen by more people.

      Good Luck

      Why are you here ?
      To make money
      Or
      Receive adulation from the community here.
      I get very few comments these days because I don't comment much on the articles of others. Hub Pages Is very much a you scratch my back kind of place.
      I write with a view to get traffic from the search engines. This traffic will click the ads whereas your hub page friends will not.
      Sorry but it is true.
      Concentrate on the SEO if you want money.

        I am here more for the audience itself than making money. I have never had much success making money online so this is more of a hobby than anything really. Thanks for the response!

    I left you a few comments since I like gaming. I'm also very new but my recommendations are to leave insightful and high quality comments or answers on other gaming related content.

    I've already been able to get some really good feedback this way.

    Remember high quality and insightful comments, that part is important.

    I find that people are more likely to visit my hubs and leave comments when I visit their hubs and leave comments.

    The more interaction you have with other hubbers, the more  views you will receive!

    Good Luck my friend

    Be more active in the community so people will get to know you and then have an interest in what you're writing about. They'll visit your profile and see if there's something they would like to read. By posting this forum, you invited me to check you out. So I did and just read a really good hub. smile See you around, ravenrage07.

      janshares you are totally correct. I agree with you on that. I noticed that at times when I am active and write in forums, the more visitors come and check out my hubs!

      Great Tip jenshares smile

        Yup, other hubbers need to know you exist.

      That makes sense. I went to your hub (janshares) and read your fantastic hub about ten reasons to join a church community and left a long comment. Thanks for the feedback.

    Readers who find your articles via search engines and links on facebook, twitter, pinterest, etc. aren't likely to leave comments unless the topic is really controversial.  Most people's comments come from other users of HubPages.  So, given that's the main source of comments, you just have to reciprocate if you want more comments.  It can be time-consuming, and you might feel like you'd rather be writing more articles than commenting on tons of articles just for the sake of commenting and building a following in-site.

    However, if you want to get more engagement from readers outside of HubPages, try to write things that people can't resist giving their two cents about.  The religiopolitical rants on HP are some of the worst pieces of prose on this site, yet they get tons of comments from readers who are not logged in.

    I can see on your hubs you allow comments from non-users, so that's a good start.

      I appreciate the feedback. The thing is though even though I am very politically minded, business minded, and love a good debate I like to target my hubs towards helping people understand things like electronics and the future of the technology market. Most of my hubs honestly come from real life conversations me and others have. Like my hub on will the desktop ever be obsolete came from my father who has always used desktops and wanted to know my opinion on the matter since I build them a lot.

      I am not a news type of writer, I could be, I've done it before, but the issue with news reports is that they are not evergreen. If I post for example "The takedown of the game flappy bird" that would only be relevent for maybe 6 months. I want to make my writing "timeless" since I spend a lot of time writing them, researching, and asking opinions from groups I am in on Facebook. They give me the inspiration so I write the hubs as a hobby and because I just love talking about electronics, games, the market in general, and things of that nature since my life is consumed by it. Thanks for the feedback!

    That's a good question. After all, if readers are engaged enough to leave comments, they probably read the whole page, registered as ad impressions at the bottom of the page, and might be more likely to check out your other work.

    So how can you turn visitors from passive readers to active commenters?

    How can you get them engaged enough to think about what you're saying and say something back?

    What gets people to ask you questions in real life?

    Here's one answer: Ask questions!

    Turn statement-headers into questions.
    Start paragraphs with questions.
    Include a poll that does NOT have a complete set of options, but only the most obvious ones, plus an "Other (Explain in commemts below)" option.

    Also, pay attention the next time you're in real life conversatios, and notice what tends to prompt people to respond and chime in, what tends to make them just listen.  You can probably think of things I haven't.

      Thanks for the advice I was thinking about doing the "Other" option in the pollls. Thanks for the insight its very helpful!
