I visit new hubs all the time and most of the time I leave a comment. On my hubs I rearly get comments. How do you get more people to comment. Maybe my hubs are just boring!!!!!!
Patience is a virtue. You have 7 hubs. By the time you have 20, you have to dedicate an hour a day just to responding to comments. It's really a numbers game. As you publish more hubs, you will get more visibility, you will get more comments. Don't give up. You're doing great.
Yeah - sorry, they are just boring. LOL - Just kidding, they are great. Give it time, when people visit, they will comment. And Peter is exaggerating a little.
If you have a look at my hubs you will find I hardly got comments for my first few hubs.Some have "0 comments".But I am sure as you spend more time on HP, you will start getting comments.Hubbers are very friendly here.
Giving advice is definitely the key to comments. I find that on my reptile health issues, care sheets, and game cheats, I get the most comments. Write how to's on things you enjoy. Instructionals and such seem to do well. But, I find that advice and help hubs are great for comments.
For example, "My Leopard Gecko Quit Eating" hub has over 200 comments, most are questions and help concerns. Some are unrelated as to feeding leopard geckos (breeding, crested geckos etc), but they are from repeat visitors who bookmark and save the site (I assume as hunting in a search engine each time would suck).
I have found that I get most comments on the "Challenging issues." I have also gotten comments on pictures, because people want to know where. Or just ask for it. "So, What do you think," "Did I miss anything?" ect.

Is there any point in replying to a comment on a hub left by a guest?I usually reply to comments left by a "guest" just in case they return again. But now I'm wondering if it's a waste of time. Do they ever see a reply?

Do you delete hub comments that are very generic if it appears the commenter hasn't read the hub?I notice my more popular hubs will get comments left that are just generic like "this was great thanks". I have started deleting these comments because they don't add anything meaningful...

Why is it that some writers do not respond to individual comments on their hubs?I noticed this with some writers who have been on HP for two years or more. They will choose to respond directly to some comments and ignore the others. Doesn't it make you feel like not commenting on these writers...

I ask a simple question: which hubbers are the best or have lifted you up to above what you can be.It is time to give a little praise. Perhaps I should start out with a few. Nope that would be wrong.These folks that just give me a boost, take time for a critical note. Send a special comment and...

I write a lot of comments on hubs. I try to find ones that interest me and leave a meaningful comment. Who would like to join me in 100 comments in a day. I am going to write a 100 comments on Thursday.
