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 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...

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...
