    Are other writers experiencing a low percentage of comments and tags from their readers?

    The hubscore and all of the other statistical information is derived somehow from how people interact with a hub.  How long people spend on a hub is measured, the number of comments, the number of tags such as useful, funny, awesome, etc. these are all measured.  Most of my hubs have an interaction rate of less then 10%.  Is that good or bad.  It seems kind of bad to me.  I sometimes receive more traffic from outside sources then I do from hubpages.  How do other writers feel about these issues?

    I have only been on HubPages for 6 weeks but I get very little interaction from others.  I rarely see comments or tags.  I also had people from outside of HubPages tell me that they wanted to give me feedback but they could not; it was disabled.  I don't know if you need to join HubPages to give feedback or not but nobody outside of HubPages has been able to.

    Interaction is probably the key.  The more you interact with other hubbers, the more you use the forum and the more you use backlinks, etc., the more likely you will attract readers, followers and comments, etc.  Well written hubs on interesting subjects are important to keep your readers interested.

    These days I try to do a little hubbing every day even if it just to make a couple of comments on the latest hubs, to respond to comments made on my hubs, to upload new hubs or add content / amend current hubs.  My traffic is up and down at the moment, sometimes my in box is full of comments, questions and answers and new followers, other times (like now) it is as if the whole world is asleep except me...good luck guys - get some good hubs going and get to know like minded hubbers.
