    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.  smile

        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.

    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.
