have 200, plus, I keep missing comments and it's so rude. Bob
Keep a lot of answers in Notebook for each Hub category-copy-paste-modify. Otherwise a voice recognition system developed by Dragon Software for smartphones might be a better solution. Their package was being offered for free a couple of weeks ago. Try it and let me know....good luck.
I just joined so I can't speak from experience but it seems you can either work very hard to reply to all of them or you can choose the ones that you wish to reply to. Do you get 200 comments daily or it is simply a backlog that has built up over time? In the latter case, I suggest taking the time to reply to all of them and after that, make sure you keep up with the comments.
Perhaps you could take some time off from writing (which you seem to do a lot of -- good for you!) and spend it responding to comments. Once you've caught up, you can go back to writing. When your comments start to pile up again, take some more time off to respond to them.
You could also set aside a day or two each week, or so many hours per week, to devote to your comments.
Hope this helps.
I get sent an e-mail when someone comments and just click on that to read and answer and if I don't have the time I just save the e-mail. Doesn't seem like a very hard thing to keep track of and it's sure rude not to pay attention to those who take the time to read your stuff.
I use to get bore at times of writing at that time I prefer to reply comments, write comments on other hubs or answer some questions.
My method for keeping up with replies to comments is by checking my personal email several times a day. I can do this because I am retired and am at home all day almost every day. As soon as I get a notice that I have a new comment, I sign in to my HubPages account and read the comment then reply to it.
This works well for me. The key is to check often. I feel that if another hubber takes the time to send me a comment, that means they also took the time to read my hub -- to acknowledge this and thank them for doing this is very important to me.
I usually just answer them as they come in to the best of my ability. Think of it as an opportunity to not only help people with their questions or concerns but as an opportunity to make your hubs more valuable. The more comments you have and that you respond to, the more indexable material there is for search engines to see. Always answer your comments, it's helpful to others and yourself as you try to build up your authority on hubpages.
I first click to their hubpage and check them out, then if I like what I see, I follow them for a while...I often e mail back with a Thank you and lots of folks will begin readying my hubs and follow me...

so how do you feel about people who write hubs accept the comments and don't reply to them? I find myself doing that about 80% of the time because I run out of things to reply. also because I am a bit...

Hello,I have always wished there could be a way to know if someone replies to a comment I made, if I could be alerted of a reply instead of having to find the page again or RSSing to see if the author or someone else...

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?

Try as I might, I can't respond to any comments in my hubs. I can add a new comment, but I can't directly reply to comments. I sign out and then sign back in, both on HP and the niche sites.How can I...

Why is it that some writers do not respond to individual comments on their hubs?I noticed this with some writers who have been on HP for two years or more. They will choose to respond directly to some comments and...

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?
