    Hello fellow Hubbers!

    I am six week old hubber with 20 quality hubs each of around 800 words. I am now putting my efforts into promoting these hubs, and I had the idea of a reciprocal comment exchange.

    I could make five value-add comments on five of your hubs if you make five comments on any five of my hubs. If you are would like to proceed please just send me a private message saying yes, and I will start commenting on your hubs right away.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my suggestion, and happy hubbing!

    If this idea runs against the spirit/rules of Hubpages please let me know, but I think it is just a good way to encourage each other to read hubs and make them more interesting by adding comments!

    sounds like a great idea.

    As far as we can have honest timeers and love to read hub for really reading it and not earning comments. if people do not like it or use it, do not comment. afterall human helps human. woudl wait to see what others have to say.

    i dont understand what the concept of forcing comments does?

    It does not give you links.  It does not give you traffic.

    All it does is give you the aura that someone has read and commented on the topic.  No offence but your time should be spent getting backlinks to quality sites that when the visotors come to your hub they WANT to comment.

    Hi mubin123,

    If a hub is refreshed post-publishing with additional text then this is considered as positive by search engines. Comments are further examples of additional text.

    Natural comments from organic visitors is an excellent way to keep a Hub fresh, and I think that visitor are more likely to join an existing discussion that leave the first comments.

    Finally, this is not a significant SEO technique relative to backlinks, which you are correct in stating should be the should be the focus (along with quality content) of SEO.

    So I am still interested in getting some commenting going!

    Asking for comments hmm really not a good introduction you know tongue lol no offence. Traffic should be natural and HP authors will visit on their own. Just participate in the forums and people will visit though it would be better having off site traffic, don't you think?

    I've no problem with this and if you comment on mine I'll willingly reciprocate.  But unless you are in the HubChallenge this really isn't the best forum for this...

    This forum is for HubChallengers...
