Is HubLove a Good Thing?
Hublove seems to be Hubbers visiting other pages creating a circle of comments and visits. Is that a good thing for advertisers or the creation of quality content?
What are you really asking Mark Ewbie?
Oh... I guess you spelled it out. Never mind.
Mmmmmm..it could be both or either one of the two you mentioned or something completely different?
If you mean informal link exchanges created among Internet friends, I think those do little good to anyone...unless they are sharing your stickmen cartoons.
Hublove should have substance and not resemble a cliquefest involving links and accolades about the person. I posted a question earlier asking hubbers to talk about what makes someone's work valuable and worthy of mention. I think that's a more substantive way of spreading hublove.
Oh the hublove...ugh....
Sorry, but you opened up a can of worms with this one for me! lol I see 'hublove' around here all the time and sometimes, it's great-when the comments are genuine and not full of crap. When a hubber sees a 'friend' comment on an article and then goes to it to also comment, they are getting views and more potential visitors to the hub, which is always a good thing. However, it drives me absolutely crazy when I see these 'friends' comment some pointless -way to go! You're so wonderful! Voted up!- crap that isn't always accurate anyhow. Stop high-fiving hubbers for badly written work, people! You aren't helping anyone that way! I think this kind of 'love' only lessens the amount of quality content on the site because it falsly makes the bots see a piece as quality when it isn't and work that should be voted up and commented on goes by the wayside. Ugh! Ok, deep breath, rant over...
To answer the question: HubLove is only a good thing when used responsibly. Which it usually isn't...
I am a new comer...don't know so much about hubbing...but the thing I liked here is no matter the world listens to you or not... just come here and start writing...(Its another matter that it gets publish or not...)

About a month ago, I posted a blog post and forum post recapping our response to the Google Panda algorithm update, and announcing our test of moving Hubber accounts to subdomains. Many of you volunteered to move your accounts early, and we thank you all for your interest and support. We ended up...

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I'm getting a lot of redundant questions in the Q&A. The person asking could have found the answer they needed by taking the time to look through the other questions I've already answered.Unfortunately, there is no way for them to do that. They can hop from...

I ask a simple question: which hubbers are the best or have lifted you up to above what you can be.It is time to give a little praise. Perhaps I should start out with a few. Nope that would be wrong.These folks that just give me a boost, take time for a critical note. Send a special comment and...

I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and informative comments. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.What makes...

Okay fellow hubbers, I am developing a pet peeve.While none of us are perfect, I'm starting to wonder about how much "we" care about the quality of our hubs? Are "we" more interested in publishing A LOT of them, or would we rather produce fewer, high quality hubs?I've just...
