Why some of my hubs have very good traffic but very few comments
for instance this hub http://hub.me/aa90c have very good traffic on daily basis but there are very few comments from the reader. Is there a possibility that I have done some thing wrong in the setting of this hub.
I wonder the same thing, and I have theories that I don't think I should share. Here is my favorite one, though.
They don't read it all because it is not their cup of joe.
I've done it. Probably to some good, great, fabulous hubs, too, but I will be really honest with you... I hate "how to's" unless I need a how to. And to be honest, if the audience from outside HubPages that comes across one of any of our hubs reads it all, they may not know that they can comment. I am fairly certain that I have gotten comments in the past from people who were not Hub writers. I've never read Hubs externally, but I have found some through google searches where I needed something else.
Look at some Hubbers with 100 scores on their profile, an you'll see quite often that even they have hubs with 0 comments. It is not for lack of quality, that, I can assure you.
I would say some read the hubs, but don't necessarily have anything to add -so they don't comment. Some probably just skim it over and move on. Don't get caught up in who does or does not comment. Just keep hubbing! Your audience will grow.
I understand what you are saying renee .. but with out comments hubbing become something like ghost writing... i can't enjoy my hubs any more
mariasial, I checked out some hubs. Being a Technical Writer, I constantly check grammar and sentence structure. I would not comment on some of your hubs simply because of the errors. My writing pet peeves keep me from commenting at times.
Yup, i agree that some people just read yr hubs without commenting. As long as yr traffic is increasing, your views increase, you are on the right track. Congrats
If you want comments, it helps to understand why people comment. A few typical reasons would be:
* They disagree with something you said.
* You wrote a how to that was extremely helpful.
* You asked a question, and they're weighing in.
For a straight up, informative article (like the one you linked), there's very little incentive for people to comment. They're probably searching the internet for info, and after they skimmed your hub they went back to Google to read another page.
If you really want more comments, then I'd suggest one of two things.
Write about controversial topics. This will get people to disagree with you, and this will get people to weigh in.
Include a call to action. At the end of your hub, ask people a question. Otherwise, really, why should they leave a comment?

Why would anyone delete a comment on their hub?If I deleted a comment on one of my hubs, I would figure I am not good at dealing with people who might disagree with me. People can agree or disagree, it's a free world. If the comment was mean or nasty, well I'm not the one looking bad,...

My top two hubs have gotten quite a few views but zero comments. Does this mean that I am only getting views from sites other than hubpages or what?

Why would any HP writer purposely not allow comments on his/her hubs?I just read two hubs--good ones--by an HP writer I hadn't encountered before, but neither has a Comments section. I wanted to comment on both, and the inability to do so stops me from reading any more of this writer's hubs. Why...
