Comments stopped?

    I made a change to my comments settings to allow anyone, not just logged in Hubbers, to post comments. Suddenly I'm getting few exposures from HP and ZERO comments or votes- since about 3 weeks (and five or six hubs) ago. At the same time, my Google traffic has tripled and my HP ad program income has actually started showing some results.

    Any ideas what could be happening or suggestions?

    Usually new hubs get quite a bit of internal traffic (they are listed in the "new" section in many areas of the site). After a few days or weeks, they'll be replaced by newer hubs and not get as much internal traffic.

    You'll usually get a lull around this time, followed by Google traffic which will slowly increase with time.

    Some hubs just don't attract many comments from search engine visitors; unless they have a question to ask or an argument to pick, most of them won't comment.
    Think about it - when you're browsing for information online, how often do you leave a comment on an article that answered your question?

      Thanks, WryLilt! I wasn't sure if I should be worried or not.
