I do occassionally,and I know people with 80 comments or more -they are over time....
But it seems some get 10-20+ right away in a short time. Is it cause they're long time hubbers, have tons of fans? Or is it cause more people are interested in the topic and it's quality?
Or all of the above?
anyways I'd like to have more
it's a combination of all of the above. Plus, you have to be willing to comment in other people's hubs more often, as most will often return the favor if you do. Another thing worth mentioning though is that the traffic you receive from hubpage members won't increase your earnings, as most people on here won't click on your ads for you. No, the people who visit your hubs from like google and such will.
Tenure. The more you do, the more they veiw,
Any, all , or a combination. Plus karma, zen, dumb luck, lucky numbers and slightly assymetrical alignment of heavenly bodies.
People get lots of comments, because of everything you've said. They have many fans/followers who read each of their hubs when they come out. The daily email helps people do that.
Not to mention, when a hub is published, anyone who is "watching" the FEED, automatically sees them when published. Since the FEED can input comments to hubs with or without visiting the hub, then some people enter comments from there.
It really comes down to a mixture of a lot of things.
This was a good question that I've been wondering about. I'm a new hubber and have been reading a lot of other people's hubs. When I find hubs that are informative, touching, beautifully illustrated and generally well done, I always leave a comment and sometimes become a follower. I find that I'm learning so much from reading other people's hubs and that's half the fun of being in this community. The exchange is invigorating and inspiring and it does seem like other hubbers will take the time to read your work if they know you've looked at theirs.
welcome to hubpages buddy. hope you enjoy your time here!
This place is heaven for an avid reader and writer like myself.
For years I wrote in isolation, but now I feel connected and supported which is really wonderful.
I can relate...I used to journal and occasionally wrote a poem for a close friend. Now I have an outlet to write and learn. So, welcome to HP!
Yes, welcome to HubPages. As for the OP, the combination of forum activity and frequent publishing can generate visibility which leads to more followers as well as more traffic. I have found that by publishing more recently and spending more time on the site has led to a rapid increase in numbers of followers, traffic, and comments.

Is it only me, or are there others who think that it should be a common courtesy to reply to comments made to a hub. I always reply to comments made by my followers and others, and people who I follow do the same. I have noticed however, that some hubbers have comments left on their page, and they...

Hey Hubpages Staff,I've been a member for 15 months now and have been told countless times that "Share with Followers" is NOT to be used by the author of a hub.Then why is it that the FEED is loaded with Hubbers promoting their own work?

How important is it to have a comment section on your hubs, or How important is it to respond?I was going through some of the hubs that belong to some of the top paid hubbers ( info found on the success story page) and a lot of those people do not respond to comments. In fact, many of their...

Do you continue to read hubs of those you follow if they don't comment on your hubs?When you have limited time do you just comment on those who regularly comment on your hubs?

I am curious what you think about people that post links to their other sites (hubpages or others)?I have been getting lots of comments but that have links to my hubs, and it seems they are trying to promote their stuff on my pages. I am curious what you think about this and others as well....

Does everyone ALWAYS respond to comments on their hubs?Suddenly there seem to be a number of hubbers who are not replying to comments left, even after a week. Is this common? Do you always respond? I know I do; if I've missed anyone's comment then it hasn't been intentional...
