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
John pointed this matter out very good. I will have to add here from the point of the programmer that they are probably random. A script chooses randomly through the new hubs that have just been published.
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.
I thought it was the new ones too...but after hopping one day and hopping the next I seen some of the same hubs. This was what made me curious as to how they get chosen. I always thought it may have been the ones that have been recently published in the last 24 hours.

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...
