    Are Accolades useful?

    Is earning more badges in hubpages useful?
    If yes, how is it useful for us?

    Not sure it affects anything (apart from your Hubber score, maybe). But I guess you could argue they're useful, since they give you something to aim for and work towards.

    I think they are useful, because, we all love to be acknowledged and rewarded. It provides an incentive and a motivation to write more... I think it is really smart of the Hub Powers to praise various aspects of our work... They are like warm fuzzy's...

    For me it was highly useful, inspiring and surely a confidence booster.  When I started hubbing I was totally clueless on how to proceed. But my confidence improved eventually as and when I earned some Accolades.  I thought my work is getting noticed and my writing is worth when some Accolades came in my way.  In fact, the first such accolade was one for having got 100 viewership.  Now I have got an accolade for 100K!  So I am very much in favor of Accolades.  It will surely help the freshers to perform well on this platform.

    For the author, their only real use is the warm fuzzies you get when you see a new one. For the reader they can give some indication of the quality of the writer you are looking into. Other than that, they have no effect on traffic or earnings.
