How does it feel, when your hub is viewed, but not commented?
I have to assume that a lot of people will read it and not comment. I read a lot of articles online and do not leave comments. I might be researching something and want the information and am not really concerned about commenting to the author.
So I imagine that is true of people here, they might read a hub, nod in agreement, or not, and then move on.
I don't take it personally if they don't comment because the article is about the subject matter and not the writer.
i feel joy when I receive a lot of view from Google. When I receive comments I feel even more joy so maybe I should write more comments on hubs if I can find the time to do that.
I wouldn't mind. I do read other hubs and not necessarily comment on them. I also don't expect other readers to do the same. You mentioned "viewed", so if they only viewed it without actually reading it, guess there's nothing to comment about. Nevertheless, it's totally fine for me. I wouldn't take it personally. But I always appreciate people leaving me some comments and the community do encourage it.
I have also read other peoples hubs and not felt a need to comment. Sometimes it is because the subject was something that I was not very familiar with and I do not have anything substantive to add, but that does not mean that I did not enjoy reading it.
That is most often the case. I appreciate comments, but don't expect them. Most people who read will not comment. I can tell by Google Analytics how much time they have spent on my hubs, if they spend a decent amount of time there, I can safely assume they liked it enough to read it. That is good enough for me.
A lot of people don't have time to comment on what they read. Most are simply interested in getting the information they are looking for and exiting. I feel fine about this.
I'm fine with that. Honestly, I'm still amazed with how many people read what I write.
I don't understand. I guess I thought that was suppose to happen. Obviously not. I wish more would so I know what I need to do to continuously improve. But, its all good. I'm grateful they take the time to read them.
All I can hope for is that the reader enjoyed my hub and will come back again. However, it does feel nice when someone makes a comment.
I've never even given it a thought. I rarely comment, but do read things. To be honest, I don't want a lot of comments that say "good hub," so I don't expect someone to comment unless they really have something insightful to say about the topic of my hub.
I had a hub which reached about 100,000 views before ever getting a comment.
Unless the hub is EXTREMELY helpful or controversial, most people are just happy to read and leave.
WOW! For your page views. It must be very satisfying to see such a great response. I appreciate and agree with your views. Thanks for answering the question.
It's perfectly fine. It's nice getting feedback from others and having a dialog, but it's not always going to come. That's like expecting to always win a grammy lol. It makes me appreciate when I do get comments that much more!
It honestly doesn't bother me at all since there are a few articles I read on HP and online in general that I really enjoy but don't feel I have anything worthwhile to write about it. I think when I leave a comment that just says 'great hub' then the writers might wonder if I've actually read the hub at all, so unless I can say something worthwhile, then I leave the comment out. I guess that some folks who read my hubs are just the same as me.

Why do people write personal fan mail notes, but yet haven't commented on an article?Am I the only one who sits in utter amazement at people who send personal fan mail notes telling you how wonderful, inspiring, creative and informative your writing is, only to find out they have NEVER even written...

When I started on hubpages I used to reply to every comment, and I still appreciate them as much as I used to...But is there a point when it becomes unneccessary to reply to comments? I think that its great when people reply to every one of their commenters, I really do, people like Sufidreamer...

Not sure if this is a problem or me not reading it right.On our "hubs you have commented on" page, the comments are split into "4 hrs" "24 hrs" and "ever".I've wanted to use it recently to check whether anyone responded to my comment. Now, I know I made...

I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and maybe it is the way it goes but I think it is disrespectful. I have commented on a...

How do you feel when you write a comment and don't receive a response from the author?

Do you always leave a comment if you read a hub?I have followers whom I've never seen in the comments sections and just wondered what other hubbers think about the comments in general. Do you leave comments when you read? Sometimes? Always? Never? Please give your reasons with...
