    Do you agree that it's so much easier to "hop" than go searching for hubs to read? This is a great idea - a better way to spread hub love!

      I love it too!  I love randomly being taken to a hub.  Super fun and hubs I would likely never find on my own.  Very cool.

        I like it also. If I come across a hub that is poorly written or not my "cup of tea" I simply hop on down the road. On the other hand, Hub Hopping has helped me discover some interesting hubs and the hubbers who created them

    I don't agree - the first ten hubs I hopped to were either just images, horribly written, copied and pasted drivel, or just subjects I have no interest in.  I like to search by topic, read stuff by people who chat in the forums, or read the hubs by people I'm following.  And as for "hub love", if you mean encouraging others to write, I'm all for that!

      You get almost the same thing if you click "latest" on on the "hubs" selection. Keep in mind that the majority are new, with only a few new hubs of more experienced hubbers sprinkled in. Many of them will not stay around, or they will be "excused" or warned by the staff if their hubs are substandard.

      It looks like "hopping" is only an option for people who are signed in. It gives us a chance to help sort out the better ones by commenting, voting or flagging. You can always go to the feed-- or to the hubs of your favorites.

      I'm with Mega1.  I'm amazed how bad the average new hub is.  I think hopping might be better if it were biased towards longer hubs or towards hubs with a richer mix of capsules.

    Yeah, Tantrum (Tantric) - I wonder what kind of clothes you wear! I wish I had a body like that so I could loll about in my bikini, but I'm too lazy to work on it.

    The great thing about the hop is that it features recently published hubs, so it gives you an idea of what current hubbers do.

    Sadly I went on a 20+ hop and must have flagged at least half (spam, low quality, duplicate, and one "other" [unfinished hub]). Of the other half, a good amount of them were still rather bad so I made comments about how "great" their hubs were and how they could improve them still (and gave a few ideas as to how to do so). (If you're wondering, I start those comments by claiming they're "great" so that they don't think I'm being critical and decide to go on a down rating spree). Depending on the level of badness, I would either rate down or not at all.

    But I did see a few good/great hubs, so not all is lost.

      I like the hub hopping but I do agree that there are more low-quality hubs than actually good ones-although I did find a few that were very interesting and led me to follow the hubber:)  I think that it is a great way to get people's work out there that may not be seen as often as some of the others.  I acutally had to flag one the other day because there was nothing that went with the title:(

    Since new hubs appear for hopping only in the first three days after publishing and since hopping doesn't count for traffic has any of you visited again the good hubs? Or for the hubber is mainly a loss of traffic?
    I don't see much its utility so I'm curious about its use.
    Thanks. smile

    I liked it. There were some really bad hubs. I flagged a few that were just gibberish. But I found a few gems too that I voted up. And I liked the hop button. If they didn't grab my attention after a few sentences I hopped away.

    Love the Hubhopping! Yes, some arent so well done. But I like that it gives you a variety rather than wading through hundreds.
