I used to 'hub hop' just to find interesting articles, but I didn't know what the 'help us' referred to.
After the recent fracas, I realised that some hubs are classed as 'low quality', or negative in other ways, so I will flag some to be checked ~ if they seem too short; or if they are just adverts, or if they link to indecent sites, etc.
But what should I do about pictures?
Some are obviously 'sub-standard' and are just collections of pictures of girls, copied from ther Internet, without any reference to copyright, etc.
However, there are others, which show beautiful works of art, on the part of the hubber. Some are photographs; some are drawings. They are full of talent. But there is often little or no text.
Does the low word count issue still stand?
I know what you mean. I saw one that had beautiful photos of a location in India-- but it wasn't an "article".
It gave little or no information about the photos. I liked the pictures, but it was substandard in my opinion.
If you flag something it ONLY means it is a suggestion for the moderators to make a judgment or give advice to the author to make revisions.
I know what you mean, but I feel terrible marking something so good as 'sub standard'.
YOU are not deeming it "sub standard", but ONLY calling it to the attention of those who may --or may not-- find that it meets their standards.
They can also give the person a chance to improve it, and give it a better chance to be seen by more people.
It's not really whether something is "good" or not. It's whether it meets HP's criteria. As for the photo hubs, I think they should all be ditched from here and put over on Flickr where they belong. Be that as it may, they are perfectly acceptable here as long as they are categorized correctly under "photo galleries" or whatever the categories are. Why HP allows a collection of stolen photos to be here on a writing site is beyond me. Maybe desi aunties really do rake in the bucks.
Thank you for responding, Rochelle and Irohner
So, photo galleries are ok??
I didn't know that.
Does the minimum number of words rule still stand?
If they contain the good and original work of the hubber, that seems ok ~ except that it is, as you say, a writing site ~ but other collections of pictures seems less acceptable, to me.
Thanks, Sof, I didn't know that.
I can appreciate the arty hubs, but not the collections of 'borrowed' glamour pictures
Also, I just read on another thread that the number of photos we can post on our general hubs may be limited. Is that true?

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...

Here's one that sent me rolling....A Fulgurant Autumn Rite Odour Can Be Prefabricated Out Of Bottomless Dark Flowers Autumn is visually a splendiferous dimension of assemblage when you can junket your eyes on the changing emblem from ketamine to yellow, chromatic, red and orange.

I was really excited when I saw this new feature because I thought it was a great way to support, get to know and interact with other hubbers...But...for the most part, with some exceptions it is a load of garbage. When I think of all the painstaking time I take putting a hub together...and I...

Hi,I think Hub Pages needs to give us some guidelines when it comes to Hub Hoping.Over the past two days, in all my Hub Hoping, I have seen barely two passable sites. Evrything else has been either a paragraph or two, or have been 300 word promotional pieces from companies promoting their own...

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.
