    Hi friends,
                  I m new to hub pages, I joined this month this community, I commented on and liked  some hubs and want to comment back and like my hub also from them, but no one commenting on my hubs even none of them liked my hub, Should I stop commenting on others hub?

      When you comment on other people's hubs, you have to post something meaningful.  Something that shows that you read the hub and adds to the conversation about what you thought about the topic.  The words you used did not show that you even read the hub, and did not say anything about you that would intrigue the Hubber to learn more about you and what you write.

      Also, even when you meaningfully comment on a hub, the Hubber is not required to read and comment on your hub.  It is purely voluntary.

      You should just comment on Hubs that you want to comment on.

      Hi Indianstudent,

      Commenting on another Hubber's Hub does not imply any kind of reciprocal arrangement. Most people simply comment because they enjoyed reading or because they have personal knowledge or experience they would like to add regarding the Hub's subject.

        Nice Christy Kirwan, So do we need to post on interesting subjects?

      There is absolutely no expectation on Hubpages that comments or other interactions need to be returned. The primary goal is to engage readers interested in what you have to say, not blindly repaying an obligation.

      comment on hubs that you like to read, not just nice article, two or three words will not get people to read yours either.

    You don´t have to stop interacting / commenting to others hubs just because nobody commented on yours. Those who might read your hubs had  nothing to say and so they did not comment. I mostly don´t comment to every hubs that I read especially if it is about technical things which I have no knowledge about or else I only have to thank for sharing the useful informative hub.

      Good, but if I am helping to increasing there hub score, then I also expect same, ie. if i commented on her/his two hubs, Shouldn't i expect one comment ?

        Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think comments from other Hubbers increase the writer's Hub Score.  Now, if someone reads our article and shares with other social media, and we get external views, that will influence our Hub Score. 
        I do try and comment on the Hubs I read, but I don't expect everyone to read and comment back to me!

    This is not Bubblews or another one of those social networks that encourage people to leave false and meaningless comments on each others posts just to drive up views and interaction.
    People will leave comments if they really have a comment to make, not just because they want to help you with a "great hub" comment.

    The bulk of the traffic for this site is from the search engines and from social sharing not from within the site - so don't expect other users to come commenting on your hubs.

    Not every subject encourages comments either. Informative hubs that quickly answer a question for instance may never get a comment, the reader gets the information that they wanted and they leave. Other hubs such as my hubs about Saudi Arabia promote "discussion" and I get hundreds of comments (and the occasional threat...)

    Indianstudent, I just visited your profile.  The first photo I see is watermarked Shutterstock!  You ony have written four Hubs for goodness sake!  Don't expect miracles after just four articles.

      It's very encouraging when people write comments on your work, isn't it?  It certainly puts a spring in my step.  I'm returning to HP after a couple of years and have only two hubs.  We've just got to keep plugging away and have the courage of our convictions,  I know it can seem like a bit of a closed shop sometimes but it's only because we are new.  There's a lot to learn, not just writing the articles.  There is an art to writing popular hubs and we have to knuckle down and learn it.  Let's make a pact to read 3 instructional hubs a week and let each other know when we find really useful ones that will help us to improve our work here on HP.  If we don't bother to learn how, we can't complain when we're not popular smile
