    Ever did "Help us out, Hop some hubs"?

    I didn't knew Hubbers wrote so much garbage. You should try this out, and find out the tons of garbage produced here on Hubpages. No wonder why Google cast HP out in their anti-spam war.

    Who are these people? Did these Hubbers passed bootcamp?

    I did that once and yes it was a horrible experience.  I never di it again.  HP is letting those who know how to write down.  Google is having a field day with it.  No wonder many are leaving.

      Thanks for your comment. I think I did it for the 2nd time in these nearly 2 years. It has something depressing.

    Remember that the purpose of hub hopping is to catch exactly the types of hubs you're talking about and make sure they don't get featured. Most of the "trash" you see will never be visible to Google because the QAP process, of which hub hopping is a part, filters them out. They may stay published, but since they don't get featured, they are invisible to search engines and so don't drag the site down.

      I didn't know that, Ronald. Most of these Hubs must be rewarded with 1 or 2 average. Great answer, thanks!

    I do it from time to time so that we can try to keep those writers who just think they can make a quick buck with "online writing" and spammers out, ultimately helping ourselves in the process by hopefully raising our overall status with Google.

    But it is depressing. Spam is bad enough, but some hubs do seem to be genuine attempts and yet are so poorly written they are barely readable.

    I do wish, however, that you could have the option to skip a hub you're uninterested in during the hopping process. I'd help out more often if I could do that.

      Amanda, it seems to me you're third paragraph there is something HP should look into, and, more importantly, keep track of. If those particularly bad ones were consistently skipped or "voted down" or whatever, it would weed out some of the spammers.

      Amanda, you can skip a hub by hitting the refresh button. I usually do this if I come across a particular topic that I'm not interested in. It just pops you on to the next one.

    I do this from time to time as I find it quite interesting to see what is being written. Yes there does tend to be quite a bit of garbage, but there is some good articles in there as well. I actually quite like this process as I feel like maybe I'm helping to maintain the quality of the website as I know that people are constantly finding ways to get around the quality systems in place.
    Also, FYI if you are on it and come upon an article you want to skip, just hit the refresh button.

      Thanks C L Mitchell, that was an helpful answer. I will give it a try soon and will keep that option in mind.
