    Do you comment on older hubs (over 6 months old) or do you prefer to only comment on new hubs?

    I do not care how old a hub is when I comment on it. Most articles on the internet do not come in to their strength until they are around 12 months old. Sometimes I have found hubs through Google searches, as a member of Hubpages I know how valuable comments are, so I comment.

    I love to comment on older hubs, when you do it will bring them back into the feed of your followers, and others may comment on them. If I find a real treasure I will share it.

    I often leave comments on older hubs. When I go to a Hubber's profile I will seek out the most interesting looking hubs. Sometimes I am surprised at how old they are and how many comments it has attracted over the years.

    Of course I do, as I comment on hubs that arouse my interest and make me want to share my ideas on the topic. It does not matter if the hub is old or new, if it worth a comment I will surely leave my opinion! smile

    Most of the hubs I comment are new hubs.

    The majority I answer is probably new but I do comment older ones as well. I like reading everyone's Hubs they give me some ideas of what to write about next. smile Looking forward to see more on this question!

    I just started my hub and i am  just getting a feel for this environment. But i think that if a hub is of value to anyone the age of the hub should not matter.

    I comment on hubs that are of interest to me. I often select the 'hub' button and peruse the hubs. If one sounds like something that tantilizes me, I read and then respond. Other times I hop hubs and do the same. I honestly do not look at the date of the hub.

    I comment on any hub that peeks my interest.  If I ask a question and I find a 40 year old hub that answers it, I will comment to show love to the author.

    I comment on any hub that interests me.  I don't take into account how old or new it is.  If it is interesting enough for me to read the entire thing, and if I have something worthwhile to say about it, I will leave a comment.

    I too will comment on a hub regardless of when it was written. smile

    It does not matter to me...if the article is eye catching, then I read it or seems interesting....and I always try to comment..because the Hubber needs to know what you think about the article.

    I comment on any I find interesting. Some are much older. I think they maybe hard to find because the writer may not have known how to get their article out there better or they were very new at the time with few followers.

    Sometimes you find an older hub when you are looking for a very specific topic or keyword. It is worth it to others reading it to still comment; even if the writer is no longer responding.

    New hubs are just a fresh way to get immediate comments and responses. If they are in the feed, I am more likely to find them and comment then when I have to search for them.

    I generally won't because I know Hub authors are kept busy answering comments to newer ones. One exception to this, however, is when I come across one that impresses me with either its humor or unique subject matter.

    Interesting question! I would comment on any hub that interests me, and I love the fact that hubs continue to attract readers and comments sometimes years after they were first written.

    I'm very new to HubPages at the moment. If I find a great Hub or a question, even if it is older, I will most likely comment. I try to keep my comment as no more than 1 year after the latest comment, though. But that's just my personal preference.
