I'm just wondering about traffic and comments for my hubs.
My traffic is okay, I have no complaints.
What I'd really like to know is why I don't get many comments in comparison to how many followers I have and how many views my hubs get. I really enjoy the comment aspect of HubPages. Many times I'll return to Hubs I've commented on just to see what the writer had to say about my comment. (not assuming anyone else would, but I've noticed some do - and I'm not expecting it either)
So...any ideas floating around out there about the lack of comments?
Thanks for any input.
i just posted one, hope you'll like it. On one of your hubs.
thanks, I wasn't asking for comments, just curious as to why I'm getting so few. Some hubbers I read & comment on have LOTS of comments within a short amount of time!! so, yeah. Just curious.
Wow, Home Girl, that was great! Thank you
(psst - I wasn't fishing for comments, just curious why I don't get many lol)
It is of course a good practice to comment back when someone leaves you a comment. Comments or not may also be a good indicator of whether your readers find your articles inspiring; try for example to write directly addressed to the reader from time to time, as opposed to only writing about subjects.
But it is difficult to please everyone, as you know. I recently had an encounter with a hubber - what was his name? - who asked a question about Fiction Factory. I responded sincerely, I thought, and whoops he defanned me.
I was disappointed, but hey, this is HubPages - keep trying until you get it right. Good luck!
too political for me although when I get really mad I write them too/Im sure youre doing great the point is to write your passions!!!!keep it up! love to you!!!!
OK, I noticed - new style, 100 followers. Congratulations!
I think it comes down a lot to the subject matter of your hub. Controversial topics will attract tons of comments as everyone wishes to voice their opinion. I have a 'Facts' hub that gets tons of search engine traffic from mostly students researching for papers they are writing. They rarely leave a comment. They get what they were after and poof they are gone 99%+ of the time. In general hubbers tend to comment more, search engine traffic users rarely do.
While tons of comments are nice it really doesn't mean much in the scheme of things. It is a factor in a hubs score though, so it is worth encouraging comments. I tend to ask users to leave their opinion on the topic, ask any questions they may have or some other statement meant to encourage comments that is relevant to the hub's topic.
I dont get a huge amount of comments either, but most of my hubs are based for sales, and consequently have more external visitors than internal.
Hubs which are based around thought or ideas seem to get more comments than product reviews.
I always enjoy the comments I do get, and I do read them all!
HEY WHAT DO I WIN I JUST BECAME YOUR 100 FOLLOWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
didn't bother leaving a comment
nice work on latest hub
count on comments from this hubber with work like that!
A featured hub seems to get lots of comments. So get like a 99 or 100 on a hub or have it featured and you may see some comments.
how do you do that? I'd love to get a 99 or 100! lol
I got no clue. Happened to one of my hubs but I considered it a weak hub and not as good as some of my other which lounge around with lower scores. Now that hub keeps rising to 100 and I am dumbfounded.
My guess would be write a solid article and then get lucky? Or try bribing the staff.

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting...

Thank you in advance for taking a look at my hubs. I wrote several hubs about 6 weeks ago and have gotten consistent (not huge) search engine traffic but low view duration. Before I go forward I want to figure out what...

This has been a problem for years now, really since the induction of the HubPages ad program and it's pretty much what has made me give on on HubPages (I used to write a lot, now seldom.)I have a hub that occasionally...

So I've deleted all of the idled hubs so far and am wondering when I will have none left. I'm not going to edit anymore until I see some sort of improvement in traffic. Too much trouble for no results at...
