How long does it take to generate a good bit of comments and feedback on your hubs? I have been here for 2 days and only have 18 comments. I like to know other people's thoughts and thier feedback. Any advice?
Wow, 18 comments is great. I didn't have any that soon. You're definitely doing something right. I have 86 in 6 weeks, so you're off to a great start.
i have no idea how many comments i have, but i do know it took a while for me to figure out this place. more then 2 days!! i was just being me, doing my thing, and all of a sudden one day i had fans and people wrote stuff. the forums are a real good place to see what people are like. read what they post, and go check them out, become fans of people you actually like, not just to get fans back. if you want specific advice on certain hubs, im pretty sure you can ask at the extreme hub makeover forum. GOOD LUCK
18 in 2 days? I have none after 10 days, so I think you're doing great!
I almost feel like the ugly kid on the block.
Thanks for answering. I was just curious as to how it works.
C'mon you guys-- it takes a while. Posting occasionally in the forums helps views. You can also read other hubs and comment on them. Sometimes people will wonder who you are and look you up.
Do it the natural way-- not for the purpose of seeking views or fans, and give it some time. If you enjoy writing the hubs and interacting, it will come.
18 comments in two days is great... and for Yoshi-- you have a good score already. Give it a little time.
Go look at lots of other hubs, sign up as fan of those you like, check out the forum posts and get to know people - just be yourself. It's a great community here. Write lots of interesting hubs, get out and about, and don't worry - people will find you.
Also pay attention to the title of the hubs. They more clever the title, the more attention it will get..and a picture that is good and fits the hub helps, too.
It's taken me awhile to get feedback on my hubs, but don't give up, I went weeks before I got the first comment, so your doing good! Once you start making friends and getting fans, things will get better, it's a slow process for some, especially if your not on here everyday writing something.
I find that the more you write, the more people will find you. Being an active member of the community lets your fellow hubbers get to know you, and they will come and check out your hubs.
I think 18 comments is awesome! It took me almost a year to get that LOL...but I didn't have a very good handle on what to do either ...once I got to know people here, it just snowballed.
Very cool, was just going to start a similiar thread when I saw this one.
A couple days in I have I think about 30 comments on 2 hubs and a few threads that just keep on going.
Anyways I wont comment to just comment. If a hub interests me I will read it and comment. I will never give a bad comment because people are just trying.
When it comes to obvious spammers no comment is best.
Now when I say I wont give a bad comment that doesnt mean I wont give a controversial comment.
Just keep writing, stay active and everything will snowball.
Dale, when you're counting comments, you can't count your own. I think you're choice of topic on your first two hubs had a lot to do with how many comments you got. So that's a big plus for you. And also, the fact that you're participating in the forums, etc.
So, for Useful Kmowledge: Choice of topic, Hub titles, participation, time/patience are important
And, yes, you're doing great, so far. Hang in there. The comments will come.
18 comments in two days is great. You must be doing something right - but comments sometimes have a strange relationship to the performance of your hub. My most highly viewed, highest earning hub has only one comment! I think it's because it's been linked to several sites and gets a lot of non-hubpages traffic. Non-hubbers are less involved in the site and less likly to comment - especially as (I think!?) they have to sign in to do it. That's my theory anyway.
I would have been thrilled to get 18 comments in 2 days. I still would be thrilled with that. I have 14 hubs, have been here a couple of months and still only have 96 -- and half of those are mine lol.
