How many of you vote on other peoples hubs?

    I won’t vote thumbs down, I feel the person had worked hard on that hub, and just because I don’t care for it, doesn’t mean it’s not a quality hub. On the ones I like I will vote a thumbs up and I will also click one or two of the useful, funny, etc boxes. If I have time I will leave a comment. I know I love getting those. How about you?

      I tend to vote more on the hub than leave comments, which I need to improve

      I always vote in the hubs.  I feel like it encourages people.  I know it does for me.

    Almost every hub I read get a thumbs up. I've rarely used a thumbs down, only if it is spammy or giving false information.  I don't always have time to comment, but I use the accolades generously.  A lot of work goes into most hubs.

    I would never vote a hub down, and I don’t vote a hub up because I don’t think it helps the hubber very much. I very often click on one or more of the “useful, funny etc”  boxes when I visit a hub, though, as well as leave a comment.

      I do vote up the hubs I think are really good. I don't vote down. If it is that bad, I would flag it and I don't flag unless it's spam or impossible to read.

    I vote. I also share if it's good, I always comment too. It's important to support each other in here. We aren't in competition with each other. The more we share the more inbound links. The more we vote up the better we rank against other sites. How many times have you been doing research and nine out of ten Google results are garbage pages full of links? That's what we are competing for. When you vote up  and share you are telling Google that we have authoritative content on here.

    I nearly always do and my votes really do reflect what I feel about the many excellent hubs here!

    I usually vote up, and "useful", etc. If I feel that a hub is just regurgitating info that's already all over the place online,and has nothing original to offer, I sometimes don't vote at all.

    If I feel that a hub is bad enough to vote down, I flag it instead. (That's very rare outside of hub hopping and rare inside hub hopping.)

    I like to leave comments, too, but don't always, especially if there are a lot of other comments already, and I'm just going to repeat what others are saying. If a hub has been published some time ago, I make a special effort to comment, because it gives that hub a "refresh" in Google without the hubber having to do anything else.

    Very rarely read a hub without voting or pinging the awesome, interesting, etc. Comment about 85% of the time too. We should encourage and support each other.

    Never. I always do something that I feel will leave an impact. "Useful", "Funny" etc, or a comment or share or pin.

    I vote however I feel i want to.  If the hub is garbled, spun or full of porn, I vote it down and flag.

    I vote up and if truly impressed with the hub, I share it on social media.

    It is nice to let other HP writers know that we appreciate the work they do by using the appropriate buttons as well as leaving a comment.  If I really like their hub, it is also shared with others.  It is one way that we can help support each other and also HubPages as an site with good content.

    If I read a Hub, I vote on it for sure, and 99% of the time more than a one word comment. I may have voted a hub or maybe two down, no comment entered because they were outlandishly stupid. If anyone finds one of mine that dumb, feel free.

    I give a thumbs up whenever I feel a hub deserves it otherwise I just ignore. Never voted a hub down till now.

    I always vote up and even click on the boxes indicating useful and so on. I never vote down but yes, sometimes I point out the mistakes which are hard to ignore.

    I vote on them but not as often as I should. I find most hubs I read are very interesting and really haven't stumbled on to many bad ones just yet.
