    How do I get people to view my hubs and comment on them?

      1)  The best tool for promoting your hubs would be social media. Now, most of that would be non-hubbers. Twitter is very powerful. I just posted a new hub and my views tripled within 8 hours.  You don't always get comments, but I'm happy that people are reading. Facebook is the same, but you have to position it the right way. Maybe start a second page dedicated to your writing, which I have done as well.   

      2) To get other hubbers to read your work takes time and effort.  Find what interests you and read other hubs.  Follow them and maybe they will follow back. I take the approach of following only hubbers who are good writers who take on great topics, regardless of whether they follow back.  I take time to promote hubbers who I feel should be read.  Do they always reciprocate? No. But that should not matter.  Good writing is good writing. We need to promote it.   In fact, there are hubbers on HP who would probably still have no readership if I had not promoted their work.  Full disclosure, I don't do politics, recipes, or religion, so my views are limited.

      3)  Engage in the forums.  Although I never intended to use them this way, you might meet others who are like-minded and may want to give you a follow.   I go to the forums for fun, just to engage in debates.   It can be fun ticking people off sometimes (gently...).   

      Most of all, be patient.  Explore the site. Write what interests you or what you feel is important.  An audience will follow.  Good luck.

        Thank you.  This is very helpful.. maybe I should get on twitter just for posting my hubs.  I really never understood twitter or the point of it.

          The same way that a reader would share your story on Twitter.  Once you have an account set up, you click on one of the links on the left hand side of your hub.  I just looked at your CNA hub, and you have FB, Pinterest, etc. If you click on Twitter, a dialog box will come up.  It might ask you to sign in or if you are already signed in, just hit the "Tweet" button. Good to go.  Pretty much the same thing for all of the platforms.  Another great platform is to set up a google site too.   If you have any other questions, just let me know.

          BTW, one writing tip I always give: create good titles.  Think like a newspaper headline writer. Nothing kooky, but succinct, catchy, something like that.  I"m not the greatest writer, but I'm pretty good w/titles.  It's amazing how it helps, especially on social media.

    One of my hubs took about 100,000 views before it got its first comment smile comments don't necessarily mean much.

    Don't forget Pinterest. One of my hubs has 1,266,321 views from Pinterest only. Many of us get most of our views from Pinterest. Use interesting high quality pictures. Turn them into memes (a picture with a catching headline of text superimposed). Open a Pinterest account if you haven't already done so. Then pin all your hub pictures. A link to your pinned  hub will automatically appear in your Pinterest entry and potentially attract many views.

    B.t.w. views outside of hubpages are far more valuable than views from other hubbers as they are less likely to click on ads. I.o.w. followers and comments are nice for ego but won't pay the bills.
