My Six Most Commented on Hubs

Updated on October 4, 2011



My Six Most Commented on Hubs

So I am continuing my analysis of what I think is compelling writing and articles and what my readers feel they like commenting on. What is amazing is what is most read is usually least commented on. And while I appreciate everyone who reads my articles I am analyzing why certain articles are commented on and while others are well read but not commented on.

Because my audience is unknown I am hoping this analysis will provide me with insight as to what my audience responds to.

As a writer I think it is exceptionally important to evaluate your own work and your readers responses to your work, I will readily admit that the data is somewhat skewed since I have had to moderate a few comments.

The best I can tell from my analysis is that my audience enjoys political articles, articles on hubs and one article on the television show Burn Notice.

These are my most hubs with comments which represents roughly 2% of my total hub publications.

And what is unique is what is most commented upon is not what is most popular at all. And I haven't even considered the rating which also tella a very different story about how my hubs are perceived.

      You are a very perceptive person. It would seem the more holes I have in my articles the more comments I get. And when I write what I consider to be a complete article there are less comments.

      It is as if the reader has to complete the article for me which I try not to impose on my readers but it does work if you want comments.

      Sometimes though there are just good commentors like yourself that have a personal experiene to add whic makes my articles more humanizing.

      And you are coorect again. The hardest part is to figure out who my audiecne is and then to find stories that will resonate with them.

      It is almost an impossible task that is why I review the statistics of my hubs.

      You are an exceptionally insightful person. Thank you for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      Perhaps response is associated to a fulfilled need. If one needs to acquire an insight on how to generate comments, they may read this article.

      This "need" alone does not generate comments. There is the "fan" concept where a writer builds a following and they feel the need to comment on everything...

      As you noted, the most challenge part is to decide who your audience is... given the www.

      Thanks for sharing.
