What do I get by hopping the hubs?
Hubpages takes partial profit for itself by hubs. Then why the hell would I hop hubs for free. Or Hubpage provides us score for it?
We do it in support of other hubbers and likewise they do the same. We are a community and it is a nice way to show support to other writers.
One thing that separates HubPages from a lot of other sites is the strength of the community. Hub Hopping allows us to help each other out but also is an opportunity to learn. You may find a topic that interests you, but you may also see things that will help you make your own hubs better. You will get a feel for what makes a great hub and you can then emulate that look in your own hubs.
My understanding is that people will reciprocate and give your hub some attention.

Okay, okay... I'm not so altruistic and that's precisely why I'm never a president. I hop hubs to see what others write in order to steal their ideas and their writing style. Is that not reason enough to hop? LOL

I have read numerous hubs while hopping that I thought would be great if the writer did some editing or word smithing. I thought it would be nice to let people know that thier piece could be so much better with out trying to hurt anyones feelings. I have commented on a couple of pages...

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...

There are a lot of terrible junk hubs here that are damaging to all the hardworking writers that are a major source of good content, be it commercial or otherwise.I would love to see as many hubbers as possible flagging crappy hubs with zero appeal.Lets take out the trash.

I occasionally hub-hop, but most of the time I come away from it feeling like I haven't really accomplished much as far as "improving HubPages" goes.So tonight, just for laughs, I decided to type "mesothelioma" into the search box at the top of HubPages' homepage. I then sorted...

I hub hope but have not voted anyone down after reading their hub even if I did not like it. I cannot help but wonder that if I vote someones hub down, then they or their followers will come vote me down. So, is it not a good idea to hub hop?
