A long while ago, it was indicated that "bots" did the numbers and that is so disenchanting to know that a real person may not even read one's hub...not sure if that is the case, but it was stated that bots run at night to update hub scores, etc.?
Interesting, that's what happened to Squidoo a few weeks before it closed down.
All our points were taken away, everyone was annoyed, no one guessed what was going to happen, but it did, hope the same doesn't happen here.
Thanks, Mike and the admiration is mutual!
Thank you, Tim!
Hi Tim, but how does the Hub Hopper work now that you can't vote or can you? Being that the vote up/down and other votes are not longer available, how does the Hub Hopper work now? Just curious.
Faith Reaper Look at the top center left of your Account Page for access. When there a rating box is at the left. The 1st is a box to check if creative/humor. Next, 3 categories with slide bars for rating 1 - 10. The ratings are explained.
Hi Phyllis, I read somewhere a long time ago that it is "bots" that crawl the site at night and do all the updating as to each hubs score ...hopefully, that has changed, but HP does not have enough real people to read all hubs and truly decide ...
Cool. That tells me that the art of writing is still a mystery and HP is just doing the best they can.
Isn't it nice to be judged by a computer?
If a computer is such a good judge of Hub quality, why not just have the computer write them?
My guess is the computer rates Hubs according to how well a writer complies with HubPages recommendations, and not on content at all.
WillStarr - My guess is that you are 100% correct.
Exactly, Will, I have been under the impression that "bots" make the decisions as there is certainly not enough staff (real people) to read all of the thousands of hubs ...
Well, I don't understand how the Hub Hopper is even relevant now due to the vote up/down and other votes are taken away, unless they have revised it to allow hubbers to vote accordingly? Just curious. Guess, I need to go Hub Hopping ...
