    Why don't most people leave comments after reading a hub?

    I ask the same question, I am guilty of reading and not commenting. Sometimes I just do not feel a connection with what I am reading.

    Most probably because they are in  a hurry but wanted to read anyway.

    Maybe the subject/article didn't move them .

    Experiment with some interesting Poems.... and see if  anything changes.

    Also, read and comment on other hubs, they will most likely return the compliment.

    Good Luck.

    I am trying to do that more if I like a hub especially in the forum reccommend another hubber hub, I now leave a comment, vote it up and click on useful or other one when reccommending it to others.
    It is nice even to have someone click on one of those ,when it happens......

    It is something I forget to do or it can be if I felt the hub was useless, then I would not want to say that.

    Many just weren't moved by the hub but don't want to dump on it either.

    People are impatient as a species and just want to move on and not get involved with others in any way.

    I have 7 YouTube channels and have had more than 1/4 million views but only several hundred comments.  So the per cent of people who comment is, it seems, naturally low.

    I think it's common courtesy to leave a comment, but maybe some people just don't think about it, but it's a great way to support this community.

    Sometimes I feel like the hub was so good that it already said every thing.  I won't usually comment just to say "good job", I just vote up and maybe one of those other tags and move one.  Other times I don't really "get" the hub.  Especially when I'm hopping hubs because some of the stuff that comes up is not anything I know or care about.  That also applies to hubs that might be poorly written or spammy.

    On a very few I relate to what they are saying enough to want ot add my 2cents and then I leave a comment.

    Speaking only for myself,

    sometimes another poster has done a better job of expressing my thoughts

    the interest level just isn't there

    I have a different opinion, yet will not downplay , insult, or start an arguement on another's page

    I have no opinion

    I have nothing noteworthy to say

    I need time to digest the written material

    I am confused by the material read from an opposing view

    I am at a loss as  how to present my view without it being  misconstrued

    A couple of times, I have been guilty of misunderstanding the message, and I don't want that to happen again.

    They probably didn't read the whole thing.  You have to connect to "your people," or, the people who are interested in what you like to write about, and comment on theirs, and then they'll return the favour.

    its depend on your hubs that how attractive it is to readers that they really love the piece of writing so they have to do comment because they don't have any other option.

    OFten they aren't members of Hubpages so they can't leave comments.

    Your language has to draw them in, it has to personal much like chatting to an old friend, relaxed and entertaining.

    Also some topics will attract those type of people which leave more comments.

    Also after a comment its good practice to leave a comment response, to let other hubbers know that you actively monitor your hubs and are passionate about them.

    But most of all your Hub has to offer superior value to incite your reader to offer something in return.

    Also a trick I use is to place a image file just above the comment section with text saying something like, 'if you enjoyed reading my article or found my hub useful please leave me a comment'.

    An affirmative call to action works wonders and sometimes is all that you need.

    May be this reasons

    1:They have not read hub with interest.

    2:Also, there are some persons who give feedback through voting up n down without leaving comments.
