I am a little confused about Hub Hopping. Does the person who you are rating know who you are? I kind of hate to leave bad feedback, but the english on some is almost impossible to read. Does Hub Hopping help with my own account or is it just being an active member of the community? Thanks in advance!
Hey Sheri Faye!
I'm glad you're interested in Hub Hopping!
It's entirely anonymous, so you don't have to worry about others knowing what ratings you're giving. We prefer that Hubbers be as honest with their ratings as possible.
Hub Hopping can help you a lot from an educational standpoint, as you're using the same rating interface that other Hubbers use to rate *your* Hubs, and those ratings determine whether or not your Hubs will be Featured on HubPages. In other words, rating others' Hubs and becoming familiar with our rating criteria enables you to learn what you should be working on when creating Hubs of your own.
Your best bet is to not leave bad feedback. Just rate the hubs according to the slide bars. If you have flagging privileges that will be sufficient.
Thanks for the answer, Simone Smith and thanks for asking Sheri Faye - I was about to ask the same question!

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 more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

I was really excited when I saw this new feature because I thought it was a great way to support, get to know and interact with other hubbers...But...for the most part, with some exceptions it is a load of garbage. When I think of all the painstaking time I take putting a hub together...and I...

I have read numerous hubs while hopping that I thought would be great if the writer did some editing or word smithing. I thought it would be nice to let people know that thier piece could be so much better with out trying to hurt anyones feelings. I have commented on a couple of pages...

I must admit, I was pretty excited when HP announed that they were going to pay people to hub hop on Amazon MTurk. The HITs don't pay much, only 5 cents a time, but you can make more money through bonuses, if you have a high accuracy rate. It all went pretty well for me at first and...

There are a lot of terrible junk hubs here that are damaging to all the hardworking writers that are a major source of good content, be it commercial or otherwise.I would love to see as many hubbers as possible flagging crappy hubs with zero appeal.Lets take out the trash.
