    Why are some hubs included for hub hopping?

    I recently started this interesting activity here. When thousands of hubs are published daily, on what basis are hubs selected for hub hopping. It is mostly new hubbers, but I have seen hubs of established hubbers with more than 150 hubs. I never saw any of my hubs there. This made me wonder what is the criteria for inclusion in this.

    They are usually ones that are newer, things that came out that day or recently.

    Hub Hopping is a hubpages’ hub assessment tool that allows you to quickly browse through and read a random assortment of recently published hubs. When you click on Hub Hopping you are directed to those hubs.

    You never know which hub will come up but the hubs will be from the category you are following and for sure you will not see your own hub because you are not allowed to assess your own hub.

      When I hub hop, the hubs are rarely in topics I follow. I have also have come across my own hubs on a couple of occasions.

    @ Sunasia22 - when I am hub hopping, I rarely get to see any topic I am following. It is a very eclectic selection - anything from poems, to short story, to travel, movie and book reviews,  hubs written for personal gain (via website links!), tutorials (I seem to get more of those than any other).  I follow health, metaphysics, diseases and conditions,some travel (usually foreign), and creative writing topics. 

    I think the object of giving you a variety of different topics is so that you can objectively evaluate and be exposed to all different topics that hubbers have to offer.

    Another reason, I think, is to more or less subcontract to us (as hub hoppers) a small portion of HP's "work" every day, because trying to keep up with over 200,000 hubbers of which more than 50% publish per day is a monumental task.

    @hoteltravel -cool question!  In my hub hopping, I have only seen hubs that are 2 days old or less. I think it is understood that none of your own hubs will be included for your evaluation, because what would be the point -- you would pass it through w/o comment or flag! LOL.  But, if it ever happens to you, I hope you let me know. :-)

      I have actually come across my own hubs on a couple of occasions. Not sure if it is considered proper to vote up your own hubs or not.

    I have come across one of my own hubs while hub hoppting one time in all of the hops I have ever done, and I hop quite often. It's good exercise. ;-) Greg

    I think it's just entirely random. I don't usually hop after publishing, because I am usually tired and need a break, so never thought about whether mine are included. I just hope they are sometimes.
