    When someone comments your hub, do you comment back?

    I have noticed people responding to commenters on their hubs by adding their own comment. I am just trying to get a feel for how common this practice is.

    I usually try and comment back especially if the reader took the time to let me know what they thought of my hub or if they are just writing a small "Nice Hub you have here!" Usually the only time I don't comment back is when it's blatant spam or I never received the notification that I got a comment on a hub.

    I do most times but it is really up to you. There are no rules about whether or not you have to respond to comments.

    I'm still pretty new, but I try to answer back. I like the interaction with my readers.

    I always respond to comments made to any of my hubs and i like it when others acknowledge or respond to the comments i leave on theirs but i don't worry about it if they don't. Some people have hundreds of hubs or very many highly visited and commented upon hubs so it may be difficult for them to always respond which is fair enough.In my experience the majority of hubbers do indeed endeavour to acknowlege or respond to the comments of others - very friendly bunch here ;-)

    I always try to thank the person for commenting because I appreciate their time in reading and commenting.  I also will go to their page and read a hub or two and comment.  I have missed commenting and thanking people on a few, but I try to check daily.

    yes...when and where possible I always comment back - I have a look at their latest hub and/or other hubs that might interest me and make a comment.  I also reply to comments, and check out hubs of anyone who leaves me fan mail.  I decided this year to recheck and revamp all my hubs (new year new start and all that) and make sure I haven't missed anyone but with hub number 70 on its way these things take time and time isn't something I have an awful lot of.  I do try to make time though for all my hub buddies as much as possible and hub hop when I can.

    I only comment back when the person adds value to my hub with their comment.  People who just say "Good hub" or "keep it up" IMO don't warrant a reply.

    To be successful as a HP member one should always respond to comments. Personally am thankful and prefer to treat each hub comment as a personal correspondance and reply appropiately.

    I comment back when there is a question or if someone has been especially kind in their comments. Does that help? Good question.

    As a matter of courtesy and respect as well as for the sake of reinforcing the sense of COMMUNITY on HupPages, I consider it a responsibility as well as a privilege to respond to others' comments. Pragmatically, it also helps to "flesh out" who you are as a writer to others who may just be browsing through the comments section. Who knows? Just by responding to others, you may very well be setting out a WELCOME MAT for both HubPages veterans and newbies to check out your Hubs.

    At the end of the day, it's all good!
