Is it better to have comments on or off money making hubs?
I love feed back from my hubs that are my pure expression or thoughts. But ones I use to keep me in the life of poverty I have become accustomed to, is it better to keep Google happy and switch comments off?
Why would switching off comments make Google happy? I'm confused?!
LOL! I've read some people who claim that they get adsense clicks from the adds at bottom by eliminating the comments. . . .so if you aren't running the Hubpages ad program then it might be a good idea to kill the comment capsule on some hubs.
I do run the HP ad program - and so, I figure that if someone can't comment - then they are that much less likely to hit a "tweet" or "share" button, and so I'm that much less likely to get income from the HP ad program through social networking sites.
Social networkers sometimes click Adsense ads too, you know.
It's really hard to say - it's all a gamble outside of writing a good, thought out hub about something.
I was just rummaging through the forums last night and reading the "combat Panda" style threads. Someone mentioned about things like Google down marking a hub if it had "spam" or what it considered to be on a hub comment area.
Sometimes I feel like I am not doing anything to help myself and other times I feel I am over thinking and should just write!
I think I only have one hub with the comments off and the rest are all on. Sometimes when I read a hub the comment section is just as good as the hub was. Whether or not it matters to google or not is a good question and sorry but I don't really know if anyone has an answer to that.

Will having too many comments posted on a hub be a cause for concern? Could too many comments make a hub less google worthy? I have one hub with over 200 and that seems excessive.

Someone left a bunch of wikipedia links in a comment on one of my hubs. They were relevant to what we were talking about. I would rather not delete the comment unless I have to. However, I'm also aware that mass-linking, especially to wikipedia, can be a problem. Do google and other search engines...

I often read. Then I read the comments. I'll only comment if I agree. I often click the buttons and the up button but don't leave a comment. What do you do?

Do you think it is important to add follow-up comments when people answer your questions?When I answer a question or leave a comment on someone's hub, I appreciate some awknowledgement. I feel surprised (and a bit "cheated" when there is no response) Am I setting my expectations too...

How do you provide comments on hubs? Do you write them immediately or come back after thinking?When I comment on hubs, I typically visit at least twice. The first time when I find it and decide I want to read it, and the second time when I leave a comment. I usually set aside a day to read many...
