So far most hubs i post dont get that many commets. How do i get more commets on my hubs esspecialy since we are not allowed to post links on this??
Using spellcheck on your hubs will certainly help.
Agreed. Poor spelling and grammar totally distract me from understanding the message the author is trying to convey. I usually give up reading after the first sentence or two.
Why do you want comments? Do you think comments are going to make you any money?
You need to learn more about HubPages in that case.
Have you considered asking a friend or family member to help you proofread and edit your hubs? This way you are still saying what you want to but you will get the message across in a more concise way and this will keep people reading.
Another option is to hire a proofreader/editor but you have to make sure you find someone that writes with a high level of English (otherwise there's no point), and this doesn't usually come cheap.
If you write your initial hub in MS Word before uploading it this will highlight the spelling mistakes which is a start :-)
Maybe it is too early. You have only 6 Hubs and 2 followers. The only things that you can do are: persevere, write Hub with interesting content, leave comments to the others' page, be patient. Good luck!
I do agree that grammar and punctuation are necessary parts of writing. By giving your reader a rough draft of your writing tells us that you don't really care. I would suggest that you start by using Firefox and install a spell checker. Then after your words are spelled correctly then read your writing out loud. Correct anything that sounds funny. Finally have some one else check it to maker sure you didn't miss a mistake.
How much you promote your Hub may get you comments. Some good, others spam or unrelated it all depends on the topic I would guess. You can post Hub urls under the 'Makeover' forum if you are looking for reviews. Hope that helps
I agree with Randy.
Telling people to just pay attention to your message (as you did in your "human needs" hub) rather than your writing means that maybe you should be a speaker instead of a writer.
If you don't care enough about your message to make sure that it is presented in the best way possible, why should I -as your reader-force my way through it to get the message?
For those of us that read/write a lot, misspellings and poor grammar are distractions. Big big distractions. They make me stop in the middle of a sentence and say "Does that say what I think it says or is he meaning another word?" Its just not worth it.
It's also insulting to those of us that are trying to make hubpages a place for good writing.
I think this is the first time I've ever done this, so the Gods of HP need to go gentle on me... but I wrote a hub about bad writing and why it upsets other writers
If you have readers,and they are not commenting, either the content is not interesting or doesn't stimulate comment. i would suggest looking at your content first.
Comets have icey tails and are rarely seen around here, maybe every 10 years
I will have to agree with the advice of using the spelling check thing. I read your latest hub, the topic and the content is great but i could not read it fluently without loosing the concept and tone, i think it might be some typographical error, but the spelling and grammar tools do help out.
Gregorry- Just an idea but it might be a thought to put one of your hubs into the Extreme Hub Makeover. You may find that hubbers will give you both positive and negative criticsm . I do know what you mean about comments they are so uplifting.
I read a part of one of your hubs and it was atrocious. This was the part I read:
" EVEN if r bodys adapted they would grow hair in order to keep u secure?? How would you feel if we had no checks and balances and obama was a dictator?? Imagine if the bak had no guards,cameras, and to get in ur account all u need was to say( i want so much money)."
Absolutely appalling and disastrous to the English language especially for something that is supposed to be written for a formal audience. I copied and pasted this whole article into MSWord and my paperclip's eyeballs popped out and he said, "Um.. NO way" (acually I coudln't write exactly what he said)
So to answer your query as to why no one is leaving comments... it is because they are being NICE to you.
Lazy???.. eh.. I think people here are hard working and very gracious.. if I feel like leaving a comment I do, if there is nothing in the hub that appeals to me ignore it.. I guess that is how most people react.
Lazy?? because they don't leave comments on a shoddily written hub????
Check grammar and spelling, as well as leaving insightful comments on other hubbers hubs. This is important if you wish to receive good feedback for your own work. Good luck.

Is it rude to point out grammar/spelling mistakes on hubs via comments?I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes. Otherwise, these hubs would be interesting and will written in my opinion. Is it rude to point out these mistakes...

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

It is important to actually read the hub you are commenting on. It seems that every time I publish a hub I get at least one comment saying something that proves they didn't read the hub. In the future I will be deleting these comments even though they are well intentioned. It will better for your...

Do you think Hubpages should take a harder stance to poorly written hubs?I hop hubs when I can, and find so many that are of poor quality. They have little to no content, or just one long text block. Don't get me started about the spelling or grammar.Should HP take more of a harder...

Do you delete useless negative comments?I have seen this happen a few times (on my own hubs too) where people write senseless negative comments such as "this is horrible" without any real feedback or reasons why they dislike the article. I understand that no hub will please everyone, but...

Do you ever leave comments on hubs that you have not read in full?Once in a while I see comments on hubs that suggest that the writer did not take time or care to engage the writer by fully reading the hub before commenting. A lot of times a hub makes great reading but the sheer content of the hub...
