    Dear HP staff,

    Are comments mandatory on the niche sites? It seems every hub I see has a lot of comments on it. I do not maintain a comments section on my hubs anymore because I do not have the time to properly respond to them and I was inundated with spam and occasional harassment at various times from them as well.

    What is your position on comments sections for the new sites?

      Hi Hearts,

      Comments are not mandatory, though thoughtful, well-written comments about the topic can help you with search engines because they show that readers are engaging with your work and they can often add value as well.

      Just something to keep in mind, but Hubs will not be excluded if comments are turned off.
