    Do you think allowing comments on your hubs makes a better hub?

    Or do you actually think it can hinder and why?

    I think it definitely makes your hub better over time.  Whenever a comment is added Google will consider that hub to be updated, and possibly rank it a little higher.  Even if they didn't, having comments shows an interest by others in what you've written, and might make someone take a second look if they're just skimming, or possibly make them interested in other stuff you've written.  You might not want to let every comment be approved, but I think having them in general is a good thing.

    Yes it makes it a better Hub, because it allows readers to view other people's opinions on the topic and as an author it provides you with direct feedback.

      I can understand your answer.  Feedback is always helpful.  Thank you for your time.

    The comments will let you know what people think about the hubs, may even drop comments to help you improve the hubs.. So I believe a hub must contain the comment capsule..

      I do like the idea of hubbers helping each other improve.  Nice point, thank you.

    It's always good to get some feedback even if the person disagrees with you. Writers, actors, musians, singers, and artists of kinds want to be noticed and appreciated. Having a comments section also allows you to see if you are on the right path. If someone intellectually disagrees with you it gives you the opportunity to defend or futher explore your position on the topic.
    You always have the option to delete a comment that either includes personal attacks or strays too far off topic. Bear in mind it's one thing for a person to skim through your hub and another to have someone be motivated to take the time to write a comment. Without a comment section you have no way of knowing if you gave some advice or insight to someone that made their day a little bit better or feel they're not the only one's to share those thoughts on the subject.

    yes, i agree with most hubbers that allowing comments capsule helps us author hubber to improve our hubs and mistakes. For example, I didn't realize i made a typo mistake in my Raisin muffin recipe until a kind hubber pointed it out. Furthermore, they also help you to improve yr hub keywords and you could hear their opinion.

      I can relate, I just got a private message from a fellow hubber regarding a mistake/typo.  Thank you for your time.

    Absolutely! It's a way of telling you, you did a great job!

    I don't see why it could hinder your Hubs unless you write about heavy topics like religion or politics. There is a large group of Hubbers that find joy in heavy discussions by commenting, back and forth until it get's really ugly.

    Only a few Hubbers know how to keep those discussions civilized. http://imkarn23.hubpages.com/ is one of them. She writes about heavy stuff without losing herself, even though she can differ with you from opinion.

    As for many other Hubbers, who like to provoke someone's point of view without respecting the person's values, comments of those people might affect your Hub in a negative way.

    Still, you can decide to accept or deny their comments.

      I understand when you say it seems some find joy in a discussion which I personally would find ugly.  There is a risk when you allow yourself open to feedback/comments.  Kudos to the accept or deny button.  Giggles.  Thank you for your thoughts.
