When you read another person's hub, do you typically read the entire article?
I recently published a hub which I intended to be humorous. The humor was in the final sentence in which the real meaning of the hub was changed; a twist, you might call it. Judging from the lack of response, I am wondering if it simply bombed in the humor department or if readers didn't quite make it to the end of the hub? This question is for my growth as a writer. Maybe it is possible to try being too subtle with humor.
Interesting question, something that I have been wondering myself lately. On your Google analytics you can see your audience traffic and what the bounce rate is for each source of traffic coming to your hubpages. To engage your readers from beginning to end is a skill that needs to be learned. I read a hub from beginning to end only if I find it interesting enough.
I normally read from beginning to end if the hub is interesting and I get more information on the things I'm looking for.
It very much depends on how it's written, and if it holds my interest. In this day and age we have multiple choices and can be butterfly brains. Maybe leaving things till the final sentence to hold things together is a step too far. I've not looked at your hubs yet so don't take that personally.
Well! Cam, what usually I do is, I scan the article simply, and if I found it to my interest and I have to comment on that, so I read it till end.
