How do hubs get into the list to be hopped?
Who chooses the hubs that are hopped? or what is the criteria for hubs that are hopped?
They're just the new ones that have just been published, theres nothing special about them. That's why even if your hubs have no views in the first few days they will usually have a higher rating than 50 because people hopping will vote them up

I consider this a good way to see what has been written new on Hubpages, and also have a chance for your new hubs to get seen.
You can see the time of publishing underneath the title when you are hopping hubs. They have all been published very recently - that is the only thing that sets them apart from the other hubs.

But what do I know?I looked up one hub via...

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 first two or three paragraphs, and then quickly devolved into some kind of...
