This was my favorite feature at Hubpages and it help me learn what the standards are for Hubpages
If you want to know the standards go to any niche site. The hopper was used to weed out bad hubs. They have people paid to do this now and therefore don't need hubbers to hop around. Most of the hubs that showed up were below par.
You just joined 24 hours ago. The Hopper has been gone for a couple of years. ??
Here we are:
I might go in for a series of uncharacteristic posts.
This is from a few months ago but I think it is kind of classic.
(These on-topic threads are a lot more interesting than the rest of the stuff on here.)
Yeah, these things are really fast when they play those games so you have to be quick if you expect to get a photo.
He is pretty impressive. But not much of a hopper, I reckon.
These two have the hang of it:
It is very hard to like toads.
Hard to tell if they are sweet or not, kind of like sloths. I have a huge Cane Toad that lives next to my house and comes out everynight to collect the bugs that are attracted to my outside light.
I think he is a sweetie, but I guess if I was a little bite-sized toad I would feel differently.
I kind of miss the Hub Hopper too. New hubs would show up there, and it gave a chance for them to be seen. When I was new here, that was nice for me. People would comment and give advice. Also, having a few views was encouraging.
As a hub hopper, it gave more of an overview of new hubs coming out, not just those of people you were following. Of course, a lot of those would not be of interest, but you could just hop on to the next. I found many of the people I follow that way.
I used to like it too. We could keep up to date with what others were writing. I never read anyone's work much anymore.
I think the hub hopper made me realize how bad many of the hubs being published were at the time. I think things have improved a lot since then. I don't think it worked all that well as a method for improving quality, aside from maybe helping to remove the blatantly awful.
Not sure this thread achieved anything useful but it is the only opportunity I have ever had to post a pic of a Northern Rock Hopper.
Not a complete loss, lol.
I think the major problem is all of those people that feel it is necessary to stay on topic. What a shame.

I just wanted to share the experience I had, in the last 30 minutes. I am at one of my businesses, so I can only look at a few hubs a day. Today, I decided to do my own Hub hopping, without using the official Hub Hopper.One of the Hubbers who happens to have a lot more hubs published than I do, has...

Would any of you suggest 'reporting' an obvious newbie who has obviously not read anything of the rules and protocols here, whose profile includes no bio and indicates having joined but 2 hours prior, and whose portfolio includes but a single, very short and very poorly written hub?I'm not even...

When you edit a published hub, does it go back into the hub hopper?

Hi all, I have a quick announcement today to let everyone know that the community Hub Hopper has been retired. You will no longer see the option to Hop some Hubs in your My Account page. We'd also like to offer a big thank you to all the helpful Hubbers who have Hopped Hubs over the years. Your...

I'm curious as to whether there has been a decrease in hubbers using the hub hopper to rate hubs. I just have a feeling there is because my hub scores haven't been fluctuating as much (which is fine with me). Overall, I'm wondering if there's been a bit of a slow down in hub QAP due to...

There is a new Hub Hopper that is available today. I've posted some details about it on the blog and set this thread up to discuss it and to get feedback. *Note, the Hopper is only collecting data right now, but will soon be used to select Hubs to feature.
