I have many hubs with lots of comments. What will happen if new visitors on my hub would scroll endlessly at the bottom? Won't they get bored and move?
You can limit the amount of comments that the comments capsule shows:
- put hub in edit mode
- scroll to comments capsule - click edit
- Go to 'initially display' and select amount of comments you want displayed. Options:- 100, 50, 20, 5
This will allow visitors less scroll through.
Great advice! I do this on my Hubs that have a lot of comments. I also don't approve all of my comments. If I have comments that come from signed-out users like "Great Hub" or "Good point", I tend to not show those. Many times when you have a Hub that gets search traffic, you will have random comments that don't benefit anyone. I don't approve these comments.
Wow, learn something new every day I had no idea I could do this and it will come in handy!
I didn't know this either! Seeing as my comments have been higher than my traffic, I should probably do this!
lol... If I clicked "limit at 100 comments" my hub would mock me openly.
Comments are after the hub. If they get bored and click an ad, all the better.
Im definitely capping it off at 12 though. Im sick to death of ppl hounding me with their support.
I learn something and I should hide some comments which are not that relevant. I really like the hubs which are organic because I can see that many of my comments came from random people just signing in to ask questions about my technology hubs for help.
This is the best thing about hubpages. I have helped a lot of netizens and my hubs are ranked well at Google and I have organic traffic coming in. Then, there goes the gold.

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

Will having too many comments posted on a hub be a cause for concern? Could too many comments make a hub less google worthy? I have one hub with over 200 and that seems excessive.
