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 started hub hopping tonight after taking a long break from it. I like to be encouraging and usually go light on people, but some of these hubs were so bad that I couldn't help but mark them down. There were about 5 awful ones and just 2 good ones. By then, I had enough and quit reading them. I...

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

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...

Could the HubPages team please explain why some of us are getting warnings about non-compliant Hubs, but others are having their Hubs unpublished with no warning?I saw this post on another thread today:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/74842#post1623078and it's not the first time I've seen Hubbers...
