    Is it good or bad that hubs are rated by other hubbers?

    In the account page, you find a sign up says "Help us hop some hubs". Do you think this is really helpful?

    Good, only if the hub hopper rates the hubs based on the quality and crediblity of the article.  Bad, if the hub hopper allows his political or religious leanings dictate their basis as to what is a quality or a credible article.

    I have to agree with caltex. It's definitely a good thing, otherwise how can you really know if your article is good or bad?

    Hub Hopping is extremely helpful to all of us for one simple reason. The new Google standards tend to lower everyone on the site if there is a large enough percentage of poor Hubs. So HP has made it easy for all of us to flag Hubs that don't meet the standards. See the details in the "Official HubPages Announcements" Forum. Look for "New Flagging Reasons." They can't do it alone. It's simply just too much to review.

    If the Hubber is honest and rates the Hub based on whether it provided them with an entertaining read or a information, then hubbers rating hubbers is good.  It makes us a community.

    Having said that, not everyone operates by those parameters.  I have had answers to questions rated down because I did not agree with the person asking.

    Good.  Feedback on how well you write is like feedback on how well a restraunt cooks.

    Yes, I think it is helpful in winnowing out some of the utter rubbish.

    It's the HubPages equivalent of cannibalism.

    It's good really, especially if you are writing from your own perspective and just being you and informative in what you write about, but whatever you write isn't going to please everyone all the time and that's why leaving a comment maybe helpful so the authors(hubbers) could add that info in that's missing or try and improve a hub article.

    Really though, it's hubbers you want that like your articles that you want to rate your hubs, but then outsiders that come from search engines are the main target to try and make them share your work and rate it accordingly too.
