Write interesting hubs that will help people. Readers tend to want to thank the author (or show appreciation) for help and useful information. However, writing about something controversial can also draw out comments ... but, be warned, they may not all be good.

Perhaps you could include a closing statement encouraging comments and sharing opinions regarding the Hub?
I think Brett has good advice. Make a lot of friends on Hubpages and comment on other people's Hubs. Eventually, you will see people commenting on your Hubs.

I try to respond to everybody who takes the time to comment on my hubs. I really appreciate that they cared enough to do that. But when people want to get into some kind of on and on and on debate I start to resent that. I feel like, hey, I stated my position in my hub---I took the time to write an...
