    Stuck as a level 5  commenter. What can I do to get higher?

    I've been stuck at level 5 for months and can't seem to move. How much commenting does a Hubber have to do?

    I've reached Level 7 Commenter by leaving 5 comments to 10 comments a day, and then I slipped back to Level 6 briefly. I re-upped to 10 comments a day, and got back to Level 7 in under a week. I'm staying at 10 a day and seeing how long it takes to reach Level 8. If you want to track your # of comments / day and do this along with me, I'll include your results in a hub I'm writing about keeping commentor level high.

      Cool - just keep a log of how many comments you make each day, and how many days go by until your commentor level goes up. Keep me posted through my email on my Fan Mail page (not fan mail), and we'll put together a hub together.

      I'm going to try that as well to reach a higher commentator level.

    But I don't think it is growing just with leaving a few comments.  Actually to go higher level, we need to participate in hubbing activities completely like asking question, answering question, take part in forum  discussion, leaving fan mail, helping fellow hubbers through our comments, etc, etc.  Normally I jump to each higher level within a gap of 3 to 4 months. Now I stand at Level IV. From here, I think, it is tough to go higher level and requires lot of efforts. Total participation and concentration is what actually count in final to get to move on with Commenter Level ranking. Still I don't deny the comments of SidKemp as he is a veteran with a stunning author score of 100.  What I wrote here is my experience and observation for  the last 1 year.

      Sunil - I believe you are right in principle, but not in detail. All the elements you mention are relevant to our Hubber score. But I'm pretty sure - according to the LC guide - Commenter Level is based strictly on comments on hubs, not forums or Q&a

    Should the QUALITY of the contributions not also form an important part of ones level?

      I am sure you are also right.

      Yes. Negative comments that get rejected can lower your score. Short comments that are not specific do little or nothing to raise it.

    Just leaving these "comments" improves your hubpages score? This website is mystifying and strange.

      Not sure why you find it strange. HubPages is designed to support community in ways that encourage writing and increase income. When you leave a genuinely positive comment on a hub, you encourage the author and increase readership of the hub.

    The best think is to comment on a daily basis.In order to get a good commenter level you will have to consider both quality and quantity.This is my point of view after reading many articles and researching a lot.
