    My best hub currently gets about 400 views per day and has only had about ten comments in nearly a year. I know that it's a good hub because I put a lot of time and research into it, plus links to it continually pop up on related websites and forums.

    However you'll find that search engine traffic is unlikely to leave a comment on your hub unless they are offended, extremely impressed or have had a lot of difficulty finding the information you provided. Think about your own searching habits - when you google something and visit a web page to find an answer, how often do you leave a comment?

    All the people who read the hub may not be interested in leaving a comment.  They just read the hub to get the information. Very few will bother to write a comment.

    I find that only a handfull of your followers are loyal followers and comment on your hubs., but you have to get out there and make lots of comments on hubs to receive comments back.

    I have 36 Hubs and about 2,500 views and only about 20-30 total comments, and I think half of those are mine in response to other comments.

    So, I would say 6 comments in 40 views actually sounds pretty excellent.

    Personally, I comment all the time on here and on almost every Hub I read because I know what kind of time it takes to write a quality Hub so I think it is nice to let the writer know that someone actually read it and found it enjoyable, interesting, informative - but, I might be in minority.

    I agree with the hubbers who have already written an answer to this comment. Positive comments are nice to receive because they show you've touched or helped someone, but they're certainly not the only judge of a quality hub. Don't sell yourself short by jumping to a conclusion that an individual hub isn't "worthy" of many comments. I've read some of your hubs and felt touched by them so I know the overall quality of your hubs is excellent.

    Less than 1% of readers leave comments unless they feel they have something to say. Controversial issues like terrorism, wikileaks, racial issues, immigration, and so on gets more comments. Some scam-related hubs that criticize a particular scam often will attract "supporters" of that scam to defend the scam.

    On the other hand, some comments are just covert ads... They post something like "nice blog!" and add their own URL advertising something.

    I've known some hubbers who drive up their own comment count by responding to every comment, often with something as inane as "thank you for commenting!"

    So don't worry about it. # of comments are NOT related to how good your hubs are.

    You nailed it.  People want to comment on things to gets them riled up.  People are much more apt to complain than to compliment.  Anyone who has worked in customer service knows this.  People will call or email in with a problem in a heartbeat, but it is rare that they tell you when you are doing something right.

    I could be that readers don't get to the end of the article and leave.
    (1) The comments box is at the end of the page.
    (2) The comments take a little effort on the part of the reader and you know sometimes you just can't be bothered.

    Hope this helps?
