Wouldn't it be cool if we had a way of knowing which hubbers have visited our hubs? I mean could HP implement something like Classmates.com has where every visit signs a virtual guestbook, and if the person visiting someone's page doesn't want them to know they were there, they can opt out of "signing the guestbook"?
Doesn't the comment box accomplish this?
Not quite the same thing. People have to actually make a comment for you to know they read one of your hubs. With the Guestbook application that the Classmates website has, the site tracks you as soon as you visit someone's profile without you doing anything. If you don't want someone to know you visited their profile, there's a box you can check so that the person doesn't know you were there.
Classmates.com is an annoying site. I'd rather we not have a guestbook here. Save that for your own website.
What difference does it make if you know who visits your hub or not?
I prefer to have most of my traffic from outside of HubPages - which is what is happening right now. I'm always delighted when Hubbers comment on my Hubs, because the others (outsiders) don't usually do so, even though it is possible.
I guess the idea sounds more like a social networking site than like HubPages. It's fun in some circumstances, but not suited to every site.
I guess it's nice to have but I could live without it. The community on HubPages consists mostly of commenting on hubs and the forums.
I understand, folks. I just put my ideas up whenever I think of 'em and let the rest of the HPers be the judge.
Is HPers a word? LOL

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?

What's your take on jealousy among hubbers on Hubpages?I published a hub a few days ago. The hubscore started at 66 and has been doing great. Two nights ago the hub went to 91. A hubber left a comment on the hub -...

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably...

This has happened to me a few times. I'll leave a comment or give an answer in the Q&A section... and I will get attacked (for lack of a better word) by some other Hubber who has a different point of view or...

I am NOT 100% sure where to post this before anybody jumps on me! I personally would like to see the comments section of a hub precede the ads and the related hubs. It feels like our readers come in to read the...
