Curious as to why some get tons of comments right away on hubs...

    I do occassionally,and I know people with 80 comments or more -they are over time....

    But it seems some get 10-20+ right away in a short time. Is it cause they're long time hubbers, have tons of fans? Or is it cause more people are interested in the topic and it's quality?
    Or all of the above?

    anyways I'd like to have more smile

      it's a combination of all of the above. Plus, you have to be willing to comment in other people's hubs more often, as most will often return the favor if you do.  Another thing worth mentioning though is that the traffic you receive from hubpage members won't increase your earnings, as most people on here won't click on your ads for you.  No, the people who visit your hubs from like google and such will.

        i don't know about that, as i've seen some hubbers pick it up right away, and gain a ton of fans and comments in a matter of a couple months or less.  It varies from person to person.

      Any, all , or a combination. Plus karma, zen, dumb luck, lucky numbers and slightly assymetrical alignment of heavenly bodies.

    Hey Schoolgirl,

    People get lots of comments, because of everything you've said. They have many fans/followers who read each of their hubs when they come out. The daily email helps people do that.

    Not to mention, when a hub is published, anyone who is "watching" the FEED, automatically sees them when published. Since the FEED can input comments to hubs with or without visiting the hub, then some people enter comments from there.

    It really comes down to a mixture of a lot of things. wink

    This was a good question that I've been wondering about. I'm a new hubber and have been reading a lot of other people's hubs. When I find hubs that are informative, touching, beautifully illustrated and generally well done, I always leave a comment and sometimes become a follower. I find that I'm learning so much from reading other people's hubs and that's half the fun of being in this community. The exchange is invigorating and inspiring and it does seem like other hubbers will take the time to read your work if they know you've looked at theirs.

        Thanks Stevennix2001,
        This place is heaven for an avid reader and writer like myself.
        For years I wrote in isolation, but now I feel connected and supported which is really wonderful.

          I can relate...I used to journal and occasionally wrote a poem for a close friend. Now I have an outlet to write and learn. So, welcome to HP!

            Thanks FloBe,
            I just finished reading the touching hub you wrote about your Grandpa.
            Also, thanks for commenting on my latest hub about family secrets.

      Yes, welcome to HubPages.  As for the OP, the combination of forum activity and frequent publishing can generate visibility which leads to more followers as well as more traffic.  I have found that by publishing more recently and spending more time on the site has led to a rapid increase in numbers of followers, traffic, and comments.
