I like all the threads about hub hopping. Some of them are getting long. I thought maybe I could create just a few threads with different titles. As we have things to share about each of the aspects of hub hopping, the topic will rise to the top...
I hub-hop for about 10-15 minutes at least once a week. I agree with the others who said they would do so daily. I am going to hop daily, or every time I get on HubPages. Sometimes I don't get on every day.
I hop at least a little daily. It depresses and bores me.
One thing I would like to know is what my hit rate is. How many times do HP agree or disagree with my hop flagging? Otherwise I might not be flagging what I should and so on.
I can only Hop in very limited doses. As it is, I have a bunch of articles on another site (that I don't do much of anything on at this point) that requires people to (let's call it) "vote" on individual contributions ("articles" ????, if you know what I mean); in order to get the x number of dollars a month "articles" have earned.
Anyone who has been dealing with "voting" on Internet "articles" for more than a couple of years is likely to reach the point where he thinks, "OMG. If I have to read one more of these things I'm going to kill myself!" Honestly. I've reached a saturation point, where I just can't stand yet one more of those things. I'm really, really, close to just abandoning my "responsibility" on that other site and letting them keep my x number of dollars a month!!
I make myself Hop when I can. I always vote after reading a Hub. I often browse whatever Hubs show up wherever Hubs show up, and then vote or flag. Bad Hubs don't take a lot of reading to detect, so I'll spend a few minutes at any one sitting of Hub Hopping. There's no way I could spend a whole fifteen minutes at a time on it.
The other flagging and voting I do, combined with limited Hopping, probably adds up over the course of a week. Actually, Hopping is far less torture than "voting" on that other site; but I came here after being on the other site, so I came with the baggage of someone who is already "damaged writing-site goods".
Not nearly as often as I should and I will try to do much better.
I often try to hub hop when I am on, but like many have shared in the forum, there are so many poorly written hubs that it gets old really fast. Most of the time, I end up reporting 60% - 70% of what I see in each sitting. Usually the crime is substandard hub...either just one short paragraph and a ton of pictures, or text written with such poor grammar and spelling it's incomprehensible.
I will continue my mission, although it does start to wear on me after a while...I definitely cannot do it for long periods of time.

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and...

I decided to give hub hopping a try. I was curious to see how good (or bad) the hubs were. I found some good hubs, others not so much. After about my second or third hop, I came across a hub that read alright for the...

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that...
