Would you get upset if you wrote a hub, but no-one commented on it?

    Luckily this hasn't happened to me - although some people don't like having comments, they prefer their hub to be voted up and have views. I personally like to hear what other people think of what I wrote. The amount of comments I get on each hub shows to me how interesting the subject matter is to others too.

    Not at all. I write for the love of writing and getting ideas out there smile All the other stuff (views, votes, comments) is extra. If anything views would probably matter to me in that I want the ideas, and information I put out, to be seen. My motivation for being on HubPages is to share and write creative non-fiction that readers find useful and want to share with others. Comments, for some reason, are very low on my list of what's important.

    Disappointed maybe, but not upset - especially if the hub was a product hub.

    I might try to be more entertaining on a hub about non product things - but on a page about a specific product, I think a more "dry" but still informative style would be more effective, as the mindset of someone searching for info about said product is rather different from the mindset of someone searching for an essay and opinions on some broad subject thingo.

    Broader more universal topics inspire conversations - but someone shopping for info about a product, those persons are looking for answers, and then typically move on.

    Also important is recognition of what one's goal actually is with any particular piece of writing.  If I'm focused on trying to sell something, then Google traffic will be far more important to me than hubpages commentary.

    I cannot think of anything on HubPages that would upset me. Not receiving any comments might, however, give me pause about the popularity of my hub.

    I like comments made to me, but I am new so I have not really gotten any. I am on here for a reason and that is to write and help others and to get other points of view of what I care about. But it does not upset me.

    Absolutely not! Comments does not necessarily determine the popularity of one's hub. My hub with the highest viewership does not have a single comment, yet people come and read it everyday! Its always nice to receive a positive comment but its ok if nobody leaves any.

      If a hub is primarily written for internal traffic, receiving no comments would be an indicator of lack of popularity. If the hub primarily receives external traffic, then I agree with you.

    I guess it would be like having a party and no one showing up.  We all want to be recognized for our work and commenting just makes one feel good. It is disappointing of course...
