I like all the threads about hub hopping. Some of them are getting long. I thought maybe I could create just a few threads with different titles. As we have things to share about each of the aspects of hub hopping, the topic will rise to the top...
I hub-hop for about 10-15 minutes at least once a week. I agree with the others who said they would do so daily. I am going to hop daily, or every time I get on HubPages. Sometimes I don't get on every day.
I hop at least a little daily. It depresses and bores me.
One thing I would like to know is what my hit rate is. How many times do HP agree or disagree with my hop flagging? Otherwise I might not be flagging what I should and so on.
I can only Hop in very limited doses. As it is, I have a bunch of articles on another site (that I don't do much of anything on at this point) that requires people to (let's call it) "vote" on individual contributions ("articles" ????, if you know what I mean); in order to get the x number of dollars a month "articles" have earned.
Anyone who has been dealing with "voting" on Internet "articles" for more than a couple of years is likely to reach the point where he thinks, "OMG. If I have to read one more of these things I'm going to kill myself!" Honestly. I've reached a saturation point, where I just can't stand yet one more of those things. I'm really, really, close to just abandoning my "responsibility" on that other site and letting them keep my x number of dollars a month!!
I make myself Hop when I can. I always vote after reading a Hub. I often browse whatever Hubs show up wherever Hubs show up, and then vote or flag. Bad Hubs don't take a lot of reading to detect, so I'll spend a few minutes at any one sitting of Hub Hopping. There's no way I could spend a whole fifteen minutes at a time on it.
The other flagging and voting I do, combined with limited Hopping, probably adds up over the course of a week. Actually, Hopping is far less torture than "voting" on that other site; but I came here after being on the other site, so I came with the baggage of someone who is already "damaged writing-site goods".
Not nearly as often as I should and I will try to do much better.
I often try to hub hop when I am on, but like many have shared in the forum, there are so many poorly written hubs that it gets old really fast. Most of the time, I end up reporting 60% - 70% of what I see in each sitting. Usually the crime is substandard hub...either just one short paragraph and a ton of pictures, or text written with such poor grammar and spelling it's incomprehensible.
I will continue my mission, although it does start to wear on me after a while...I definitely cannot do it for long periods of time.

I have read numerous hubs while hopping that I thought would be great if the writer did some editing or word smithing. I thought it would be nice to let people know that thier piece could be so much better with out trying to hurt anyones feelings. I have commented on a couple of pages...

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and hopefully take this hubpages back to the top, where it belongs.The problem is...

How often do you do some Hub Hopping? Do you like it at all?I started to use this feature on HubPages recently, and I think it is very useful, as it helps new hubs to be noticed by more and more people in the community.From now on I will try to Hub-hop everyday for a while just to help others and...

There are a lot of terrible junk hubs here that are damaging to all the hardworking writers that are a major source of good content, be it commercial or otherwise.I would love to see as many hubbers as possible flagging crappy hubs with zero appeal.Lets take out the trash.

I decided to give hub hopping a try. I was curious to see how good (or bad) the hubs were. I found some good hubs, others not so much. After about my second or third hop, I came across a hub that read alright for the first two or three paragraphs, and then quickly devolved into some kind of...
