how do you keep getting comments on your hubs? I mean the ones that you have written recently and then the older ones? Do you keep revising them or adding new stuff to them? How do you get lots of people commenting on your hubs? I'm getting some, but would like to get more people commenting and reading my hubs.
Comments is a trading system, a society of people returning favors when you comment on their hubs. Those who really seek feedback need to be active. Some are not shy about promoting their own hubs in comments or encouraging others to visit a specific hub; not a practice that I agree with.
There are other methods. Some hubs happen to have a large audience from the wider Internet. Their popularity gives a constant flow of comments from unregistered visitors.
how do you get lots of comments from the wider internet? Do you have to advertise a little more? I'm new to advertising my hubs
If you use good keywords, you can often draw traffic from search engines that increases over time without you ever revisiting the hub. Many claim backlinking also helps, but I'm far too lazy for that on a site that isn't my own!
After I write a hub I never change it (unless there is a glaring mistake such as spelling or incorrect fact.) The older a hub is, the more search engine visitors it will get, if it's in a good niche.
There are several things that drive internet searchers to leave comments:
1. Controversy - if it's a topic on which many people have strong opinions, you'll draw lots of comments.
2. Very helpful information or something extremely new/interesting - if people are very grateful (for instance they've been searching for hours and yours is the first good topical article they've found) they'll be a lot more likely to leave comments.
3. Further questions - if people read your whole article and think you seem to be an expert, but they still want more information or help, they're likely to leave a comment/question.
The hubs I've seen that had attracted a lot of comments were popular because people search for them. Of course, you can advertise by using social networks, backlinks and such, but keyword research seems to be the way to go unless you happen to come upon an attractive niche.

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...

Evening, While I cannot complain with my views on Hubpages, I'm at a bad stage with commenting. I just wonder why nobody seems to enjoy my Hubs enough to comment. Are they too long? Do they not appeal to the Hubpages audience?I do try and make them as lively as possible - but I sometimes find even...

When someone comments your hub, do you comment back?I have noticed people responding to commenters on their hubs by adding their own comment. I am just trying to get a feel for how common this practice is.

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously. These new hubbers have 0 (zero) hubs and no other activity, and they are never...
