Why do so many people skip rating a hub?

    Yes, I miss them too. I wish it was near the "share" stuff. Then you could easily do it all at once.

    Generally, the feedback can help you tweak the hub if you like. I think it means that someone is also more likely to share with their own hub followers, a source of good traffic. You are right though, the organic traffic is also a good judge.

    Inexperience was my problem at the beginning too. And, it's easy to miss if there are lots of comments at the end of the hub.

    I agree! I think most people try to write well and people tend to learn more from pointing out the good things in their writing, and perhaps a helpful suggestion about something to improve.

    Yes, it's easy to miss though. When you read a hub, it's at the end, right before the similar hubs and comments! Glad you asked. Sharing is great too, and that's on the right, at the top.

    I do the same. Although I understand their desire to help other Hubbers and to get people into the habit of rating.

    Certainly! Just because I like to give people feedback about what I liked in a hub doesn't obligate anyone else to. Writing class teaches us the importance of feedback to the process. I just know a click doesn't mean anyone even read the hub.

    The hub ratings are just after the hub text and the list of hubs with similar themes. Just before the first comment. I have few people that comment on my hubs. Not sure how I feel about that. Some people have over 1000!

    This is true. I also feel like the thumbs up vibe is getting a little useless becauses it may be used a little too much, but what would we do without any hand signals. You should read my hub on Shel Silverstein. I touched on this topic through it.

    It seems it's become important if you want HubPages to keep it featured longer.
