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.

Maybe its just me but I realize the work people put into their writing so I comment. Even if its just a thanks for sharing. How about you?

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 ignore the others. Doesn't it make you feel like not commenting on these writers...

One of my hubs has a huge amount of comments (questions) from the same person, and I'm just wondering if this could cause my Google rankings to drop. The reason is that the name of this person is on there such a lot of times and Google may perceive that the article is more about Jack than anything...

Does it bother you that people visit your hubs and don't leave comments?What's more important to you, getting tons of traffic with no comments or getting less traffic with comments?For me, I love to get comments because it lets me know if I have touched someone or given someone a new way of doing...
