    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.

    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 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.

    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!

    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.

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

    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.
