    Have you experienced long duration of having no comments in any of your hubs?

    There are times that I get weary about the comments because having no comments can be an indicator that your readers were not engaged. Have you experienced receiving no comments for a long duration of time? (probably some weeks?) [Random Note: I can't comment on answers/response. I think there's some glitch]

    Hello, I see that you joined HP two months ago.

    Don't worry about comments. They will come. It took about nine months for my hubs to begin receiving comments. I had asked a similar question as you have here. Within hours comments began. It was like a magic spell. smile

    It just takes some time and you will find comments hit your hubs like waves on a beach when they do start, sometimes a few, other times several at once.

    Keep hubbing and love what you do. Others will comment in time.

    I have published over 35 hubs in the 4 months that I have been with HP. Some of my hubs still do not have comments; even though they have views. I'm not bothered by the lack of comments. Don't let that bother you, either. Just produce your best quality of hubs possible. I try to comment on the hubs that I read and vote up or down; but there are times, when I read hubs that I just don't have anything to say about it one way or another. That's not a negative thing, I just don't believe in writing or saying things purely for the sake of doing it.

      Well said, this sounds like some good advice to me. Thanks Yvette.

    I have the same problem too. I do not get comments for my hubs for weeks. I do read others, comment on them and provide my feedback on daily basis. I engaged myself on the forum and ask questions. Still no luck.

    Well, the comments in my hubs are not active. If you want, feel free to leave a comments in my hubs. I would suggest you to focus more time in writing more useful hub, optimize SEO and drive more traffic to your hub. Rather than spending time thinking about the quantity of comments.

    The number of comments I receive about a hub really depends on which topic I'm writing about - I  have a variety of hub topics.
    I looked at your hub scores, and people are thinking highly enough about your hubs to vote them up.
    If you're still concerned, you might check that your global comment settings allow comments.
    You might also check Google Analytics to make sure people are staying on your hub page long enough to read it.
    Other than that, if someone has something to say, they'll leave a comment. So relax.

    Over the past year and a half, with over 70 hubs, most of the time the hubs I expect to get plenty of comments get few, and other get plenty.  I have definitely found that adding a poll or two into your hubs gives the reader a much easier way to give feedback and show how well they are following the content of the hub.

    No comments isn't a problem. No hub views, that is the problem. Update tags. Write more hubs. Make sure your content is valid. That is really what you need to do. If you want comments either write hubs that start debates.

    Altho any comments is a compliment, it doesn't bother me if I don't have it on my hubs. As long as I get people reading them and let them know what is on my mind, that is fine.

    Up until now I can't comment on your answers. sad

    I just want to let everybody who answered my question know that I appreciate your response. I was enlightened by some of the answers.

    Bretsuki: I like your statement "Keep hubbing and love what you do!", it somehow keeps my hopes up

    YvetteParker: It's a nice to see it that way. I guess comments (or the absence of them) should not stop us from creating beautiful and high quality hubs.

    To all others: Thanks again! smile

    I am new to Hubpages. But, I think that when you are active on the community, you can get a lot of comments...

    I have been on hub pages for three years, but only using it more actively more recently.  In those 3 years I've recieved a whopping total of 6 comments. So yes, I go a long time without comments!
