Has the Hub Hopping feature changed?
Has the hub hopping changed? I cant just hop between ones I want to read I must now read EVERY one. Also, I cannot comment. I cant vote up or down. Doesn't this seem a bit counterproductive if it is the case?
Yes, it has changed and all you say is true. Is it counterproductive? Not sure what you are getting at. However, it seems to me that HubPages want to change the kind of input they get from hub hoppers and the purpose of it. This new set up will only draw those who are interested in giving a lot of time to critiquiing a hub, rather than hopping arounding finding those that are interesting and offering light feedback. If this is what they are after, I hope they will at least change it so that we can choose exactly which hub we find interesting enough to give a lot of critiquing time to.
Yeah it changed, and I've decided I'm about the last person who should be going through Hubs and grading them, which appears to be the point of the new Hopper. I'm not an English major, just a reader.
I had previousy enjoyed going through the Hopper. It offered a chance to view material from new Hubbers, and provided the links so that we could go find out more about the author, as well as offering the reaction opinions: 'funny', 'awesome', 'beautiful', 'useful', and 'interesting'. It also offered the opportunity to break from the normal 'pre-filtered to your preference' default HubPage. All that is now gone, and Hub Hopping is no longer a 'just browsing' option to look forward to.
For those who want to do quick scans without indepth grading and critiquing, I inadvertently found that navigating foward and back using the browser buttons provides quick access to the next Hub.
Don't get me wrong, there are those who are suited for the sort of critique they seek, I'm just not one of them.
It has changed and it is horrible. We have lost the freedom to read what we want so I no longer Hub Hop. Counter productive is a good name for it.

I was really excited when I saw this new feature because I thought it was a great way to support, get to know and interact with other hubbers...But...for the most part, with some exceptions it is a load of garbage. When I think of all the painstaking time I take putting a hub together...and I...

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 more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and hopefully take this hubpages back to the top, where it belongs.The problem is...

How often do you do some Hub Hopping? Do you like it at all?I started to use this feature on HubPages recently, and I think it is very useful, as it helps new hubs to be noticed by more and more people in the community.From now on I will try to Hub-hop everyday for a while just to help others and...

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...

When you are "Hub Hopping" do you make a comment?I never know if I should write a comment or just read, give it an up or down, flag it, and just move on to the next one.
