Why You Should Comment On Hubs Then Visit Another Hubber Commenter.

Updated on January 20, 2016

Reason's To Make Comments

I often look at the number of views I have and the number of comments I have. There might be 30 views but no comments. Now I know some of those views are Hubbers. They don’t comment and I often wonder why. They don’t like it; they just don’t want to take the time. What is the reason?

Why not comment? The biggest reason Hubbers should comment is the fact that it brings more people to their own hubs and they are noticed. I often go on hubs and I look at the comments and visit the person’s profile. If someone leaves a comment I will visit their hubs and leave comments on their hubs. It can go on and on. If you're not commenting, you are making a big mistake. It will help you bring up your score and bring traffic to your hubs. Google likes sites with lots of comments.

New Hubbers should know this. I also try to visit anyone that visits my hub and leaves a comment. If they leave a comment I know they have been to my hub. I look at their profile and pick a hub to read and comment on.

The more comments you get the better because those commenters may share your hub on with other Hubbers.


Some Hubbers No Time.

There are some Hubbers that never visit other hubs. Some that say they have no time. I can understand the time thing, but if it’s just a few comments you leave it gets you out there people start to know you. They will come to your hubs. It’s to your advantage to make comments on hubs. I also know there are some top Hubbers that say they get too many comments and can’t answer them all. I don’t go to some of their hubs. There is the money making top Hubbers on here that do answer all their comments and are nice people and always willing to help others.

There are also Hubbers that leave comments off their hub or if they have comments they don’t comment back to some of the comments they get. I guess they have their own reasons, but I don’t know what it would be. I stop following those people. I figure if they don't comment on my comment they are never going to visit my hub. If they don’t have time for me I don’t have time for them. I don’t get my feelings hurt I just know I have taken my time with them and I will no longer do that. My time is also important to me. I would also rather spend my time with Hubbers that care.

I commented on a hub recently and this Hubber commented back to everyone but completely skipped my comment. It seems I was the only person left out. That's ok I won't take the time on her hubs any longer and I will not pin, share, or vote on her hubs. I wouldn't have thought much of it, but she had made a small remark about me on another hub so I get it she doesn't like me.

You should response to each and every comment you receive separately. I think this will also help your hub. There are times mistakes can be made and your comment is missed.

I also try to hub hop and see what new hubs are out there and try to comment on them. I comment on many different types of hubs. I love it when I’m the first commenter.

When you comment on someone's hub they will get a message from HubPages letting them know you have commented and it will come up on their comment page. They will see they have a comment from you. Now they know you and they know you exist. They may share your hub with others.

If you’re just here to write well then maybe comments aren’t important to you. They should be because you want to know what people think of your work.

If you're here to make money than you need to comment. Comments are a good way to get more people to your hub.


Here's How It Goes.

Here’s an example what you can do. Nothing new I’m sure to old Hubbers. It's just a different kind of sharing. I visited a hub this morning called

Fun Things To Do With Glow Sticks by Jamie Brock. I commented. I looked at her other comments and I picked one commenter to visit. That commenter was Ebower. I commented on her hub Vintage 60’s Makeup. As you all know I’m having trouble coming up with more words. Have I hit 500 yet?

Do you want followers? Leaving comments is the way to get followers and comments on your own hub. If you’re a new Hubber please don't follow everyone you see your score will go down very fast.

Please pass on your comments to others. What you have to say is important and welcomed to all Hubbers. Don't leave short comments like "great hub." Take the time to say more.

If you’re not taking the time to do this you should it will help your hubs. I also try to make sure I comment on Hubbers I know will come back and visit my hubs.

If you see a hub that looks interesting stop and leave a comment. There are so many Hubbers on HubPages you will never run out of hubs to look at. Some are so interesting and some are not. I'm sure lots of my hubs don't interest a lot of people.

Think of answering a comment as if you’re sending out a thank-you note. If you can try to comment at least ten times a day. I don't criticize anyone in the comments I leave or try not to start an argument, it's wise on HubPages to be a nice person rather than a person that is always unhappy or causing trouble.

Read the hub you visit all the way and stay awhile so you know exactly what is being said. I have often seen comments on my hubs when I know the person hasn't read it. They will ask me a question that has already been answered on the hub. I don't get upset over it, at least, they have come by and taking the time on my hub. We're all guilty of scanning I'm sure and sometimes you can do that with smaller hubs. I wish I was like my aunt she can speed read. What a gift.

Think of answering a comment as if you’re sending out a thank-you note

Hubbers That Never Comment Back

In the last three days, I have had four comments on my hubs. I have commented on 39 hubs in two days. I was up last night couldn't sleep so did some comments.

I make comments often on one hubber's hubs, but they never comment back and yet I see them commenting on other hubs. My question would you comment on their hub again?

How Do You Feel About A Hubber That Never Visits Back. Would You Comment On Their Hubs Again?

See results

Things are changing on Hubpages.

I no longer hub hop. I don't like the new hopper. It takes to long. You have to leave a rating on the hub even if you don't want to. I just will not use it again. I'm sorry about this. I always liked to comment on new hubs.

They have changed the hub hopper. They have added the classic hopping back so now I hub hop again. I'm so glad they changed it.


Remember any hubber that visits your hub after you have left a comment on their hub could easily bring in more views for you. They may pin, ad to Facebook, twitter, share it with their followers or add it to G+ all of this could bring more views to your hub from outside HubPages.

Like it says in the comments "One advantage of commenting that is worth mentioning is that, for SEO purposes, it will leave a dofollow link back to your profile."

I don't know what has happened lately, but my views are going up. I'm not complaining. I’m so glad to see them going up for once instead of down.

What Now?

Well, now views have dropped. It's so hard to keep up with the up and down of views. I have no idea why they dropped, but I have heard Panda and Penguin have been around. They don't like me and that is usually why my views go down.

The strange thing that has been happening is hubs that are never at the top are there now and hubs that I get more views on are now going down.

Much worse now about half of traffic from Google is gone. The news explanation for drop-in traffic.


Things have changed again. Just a few days ago I had a Hubber score of 93 today it was 88.

      Cyndi10, Thank you so much for stopping by. The Hubber score is a real pain in the neck, for sure.

      I love the pics of the old typewriters. I think I commented when you first published this, but it's a good article. Whether we write on Hubpages a lot or occasionally, most writers love some kind of feedback. It is also, as you pointed out, a benefit to the writer and to the one leaving the comment.

      As for that Hub score, that is a moving target for sure! Just have to roll with it. I can't see the rhyme or the reason for the changes, although I've seen many explanations.

      You take care.

      Shyron E Shenko, I know what you mean about the Hubber score. Yesterday in the feed my score was showing 88 but on the profile page, my score was 87. The scoring doesn't make sense.

      I have had trouble getting all of my comments answered and I know I am behind. All of 2014 my husband was too sick and I just get on here. After he passed away I didn't get off the sofa for months. I still have bad days. I visit HP but I don't catch up on comments. Every day gets a little better. Blessings and Hugs to you.

      Dear Moonlake, I appreciate this I am back to re-read.

      Commenting, I always thank anyone who comments on my hubs and return a comment, albeit not always right away as I have a lot going on away from my computer. I know that you Moonlake are the one person who understands what I am saying. I also know that sometimes I may miss a comment(er), but I always try to keep up with comments, and I truly appreciate anyone who visits my hubs.

      I don't know what is wrong with HP's Hubber's score, but it is driving me crazy. When I went to my profile this morning it was 87 as soon as I click on your hub my hubber score dropped to 86, yesterday it went up to 88, and the moment I went to answer a question it dropped 2 points.

      Anyway Blessings and hugs my friend.

      I always try to visit the hubs of those who leave comments on my hubs. There are some hubbers here who really are very good at this. I'll try to do more. I think supporting other hubbers will also be good for all of us here.

      Glenn Stok, Your right we should be sociable on here. I have always had time to approve comments. I did get way behind on replies to comments and I'm still catching up. I was once a level 8 commenter. I think I'm 3 now. Thank you for stopping by.

      This is a very important subject and you explained it well.

      I have also noticed that some hubbers don't pay attention to moderating their comments left in their hubs. I have left comments that never get approved. And I see that they have few, if any, comments. So I guess they are receiving comments and just not approving them.

      Every once in a while a comment I left many months ago suddenly gets approved. And the author finally posts a reply. That's an interesting experience.

      I have to say, there is one thing I view differently from you. When someone does not reply to my comments, I give them slack if I notice they have tons of comments. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to keep up with all that.

      But I do agree with you in the case where they have just a few comments. If they don't approve mine in a timely manner, or if they don't acknowledge it, I may be inclined to not waste time leaving comments in their other hubs.

      In addition to leaving comments in hubs, commenting in the forums also gets one recognized and can bring other visitors. The bottom line is to be sociable and be active all over the place.

      Commenting, responding to comments, and checking out new-to-me hubbers I find in others' comment sections can be a rich part of learning and growing as a writer.

      Maybe I comment too often... I enjoy reading almost as much as writing, likely spending as much time with print as the average person spends with television... If I find what I am reading to be interesting, inspiring or informative I will always leave a comment, even if just to say 'thank you'... By the way: Thank you!

      I was wondering about this!!! Wondering if leaving comments ever accomplished anything for the commenter, aside from giving them a chance to voice their opinion. Now I see that some hubbers take their comments very seriously, like you. I will make a point of tying to comment more. From now on.

      Lady Guinevere, Thank you good information about the comments. I appreciate you stopping by. I'm going to comment one of everyone's hub that I haven't commented on yet, but first I have to get my house cleaned.

      JayeWisdom, Thank you so much for stopping by. If you didn't like the hub and didn't agree I don't blame you for saying something. I appreciate you stopping by here.

      This has always been an issue for me. I have started commenting on others posts and commented on other comments as well. I do not always get notifications of comments made back to me. That is a problem that I see happening lately on HP, BUT there is a way around this too.....go to your account and look up hubs that you have commented on. Then you can go to those and see if you have any comments back.

      This is to be shared and I am sharing it and voted it up too.
