    Does commenting on answers go towards commented level?

    I really want to try and boost my commenter level, at the moment I just comment on hubs I have written and those I read (normally via hopping) however I also have an accolade for 300 answers to my questions. If I were to comment on each of these would it be a waste of time, or actually go towards my level?

    This I am not sure. But what's the point of increasing your commenter level?

    I believe it does go towards your level. I reply to most comments my hubs, and for a while that was all I was able to do. I still got to the next level.

    I think the more you comment on other hubs the higher your level will be.

      It adds to your hub score I think.

    I don't think you need to worry about your commenter level. You've only been here 7 weeks, and it tends to go up rapidly at first, and then level out. If you are commenting on hubs your level will rise, but it's best to comment because you are genuinely interested in the hub or like the hubber, rather than to try to increase your score.
    I don't think commenter level affects Hubberscore much either because I've been a level 7 for around 9 months yet often have a Hubberscore of 100. But even Hubberscore doesn't affect traffic. I know this doesn't really answer your question, but nobody really knows the exact reasons for various scores and levels. What's far more important is to write quality hubs that are at least the meeting the requirements of the "Stellar" hubs outlined in the learning center.
    Good luck, and welcome to HubPages.

    Yes it does  move you up to the next level the point of commenting level is to get you to participate in daily activities on the HPages the more you take part in the Qs AND As the better for gaining your platform here

    Good question. I've often wondered this myself. I have answered numerous questions. I spend more time doing this than hopping Hubs.

    The whole point in giving accolades for commenting is to motivate you to read more hubs and be a more active member of hubpages writing community.

    The level you reach as a Commenter seems to have nothing to do with what you earn on HubPages.  It is surely not a disgrace or even a poor reflection on you to be at something below Level 8!  Give meaningful, and helpful comments and you will see your level rise.

    I don't really worry about levels. Commenting can help get more traffic to your own hubs. But I think the comments have to be sincere. I've checked some hubbers out because I found comments they made interesting.
