Hubs of the Day are chosen by HubPages staff members based on their interesting subjects, beautiful formatting, and high quality writing. New Hubs are most frequently chosen, however old Hubs may also be selected and showcased.
Hubs that are involved with other special HubPages programs (e.g. Weekly Topic Inspiration, the HubNuggets program, contests) are more likely to be selected as Hubs of the Day than others, however HubPages staff are just as interested in high quality Hubs that are not associated with any HubPages community activities.
To be showcased on the HubPages homepage, Hubs of the Day must have a high quality image that can be used in the carousel. This means that not all amazing, beautiful Hubs can be selected because their images may not be adequate. Furthermore, illegally used images (e.g. not properly attributed or stolen) will immediately disqualify Hubs from being featured as Hubs of the Day.
