Yes. It is a way to be a part of the Hubber's community, and it is a quick way to get a look at newbies.
Yeah i like hub hopping because you get a chance to see a wide variety of topics. there are some really good writers here!
I've tried it a few times. It shows me how much spammy crap people put up here, but occasionally there's a gem.
It is pretty good. It is a good way for you to find new hubbers, comment on their stories, and attract followers.
I haven't much luck with it. Usually all I get are three or four block paragraphs of jumbled English trying to sell a camcorder.
Yes. It gives me a chance to see hubs that I may not have otherwise seen.
Sometimes, mainly because I end up finding folks that I otherwise probably would not see. Sometimes I get into a cycle when I am hoping of just seeing one marginal hub or uninteresting hub after another. So hopping can be hard work too! WB
I have found a few quality hubs through hopping that are really good reads, but the bulk seem to be churned crap that people have written just to get a back link. That being said, aren't do follow links turned into no follow if your Hub Score is under X amount?
I have tried it several times, I hate it. It takes you to spam too much. I prefer to look through the topics, sometimes search and browse the hubs that way.
I do it occasionally. Though I don't usually bother to read subjects that are of little interest to me.
There are some real gems in there-- some a bit unpolished, but it's a good way to encourage new hubbers.
I also flag quite a few-- people need to realize that 'flagging' is not a discredit to the author. It merely serves to quickly bring staff attention to evaluation of the hub.
Why not? I think it is a good way to get to know the new hubbers and make them part of the community.
LOL! I give LillyG and SteveoMC instant votes up based on me knowing their characters. I always wonder, what puts a hub into "hop" category? Is it only new hubber's hubs that wind up there? I do like hoping hubs, guess I should do it more often. I should probably check my "home" settings, and expand them, but truly great hubs always wind up there already.
I like it, you feel that you are a real memeber in this community, and you have the task to make it better.
Hub hopping is one way to learn and getting to know more hubbers..fun too. I enjoyed reading other hubs depending on time allowed.
Some benefits - spot new good stuff. But oh boy. The rubbish that is on there. Now I think we have a duty to flag because it is important to try to keep the standard up. If people find rubbish when they come to Hubpages then the whole site will suffer. And that means we all suffer.
Yes and i always find myself asking "how did i get to this hub" and tracing my way backwards.
Are you a "Goody Goody?" --------------- (((((((((((((((((((((((---------

HubPages has this wonderful feature called Hub Hopping or Hub Hop to flag low-quality/copied/spam content. I know some hubbers do use this and help HP staff weed out the substandard content. Here's one more reason why...

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...

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...

How often do you hop hubs?Since hubpages shows me hubs in which the categories I am following, I enjoy hopping hubs. It's also great because they show the new hubs, so its never one I have read before!
