I logged in this morning and saw Editor's Choice for the first time, alongside one of my hubs.
How come they don't pick the one you'd have liked yourself? The one you think is best/better?
It's a good, but bad, feeling all in one.
Now I'll be interested to see if it makes one iota of difference to stats/traffic/income etc.
Congrats with the achievement? Curious about the stats... Saw many people blaming the whole Editor's Choice program and accusing it for bringing the traffic down... How's your status so far?
We probably haven't viewed your "best" Hub yet. It's going to take us time to get through all of the Editor's Choice candidates. Congratulations! It's not easy to have a Hub chosen!
I have two editors choice, the traffic on one is way down and the traffic on the other is a bit better. However, traffic on the first one was already going down before it became an 'editor's choice', so I am unable to tell what would have happened if it had been left as it was. Personally, I don't think it has made very much difference yet.
I don't understand? It seems to me that the Editor's Choice could only help your hub. Why do people believe that it drives traffic down? Very interesting though if it does.
It changes the hub of the url. So you lose links and bookmarks. And there is no evidence yet that the new url gets more search traffic.
I think the old links just redirect to the new location don't they? I don't think you completely lose the original subdomain link.
"It changes the hub of the url."
Well, either that or the url of the hub.
But you won't lose links or bookmarks; both will still direct a reader to your hub. You may lose google juice from those links - depending on where they are that could be good or bad.
I was just mortified that I lost my high amount of Facebook likes on one of them, and no I haven't regained them.
They're breeding.... more ECs now.
Of the first one, phenomenal traffic... huge. I shouldn't tell you or you'll be jealous, but I'll just hint that you won't need the fingers on your second hand if you're counting the visitors today.

Really cool to see that my hub, <link snipped>, was just picked as Editor's Choice. Can anyone tell me what it means, and maybe how to capitalize on or leverage this bump?Thanks!

I had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google...

I make it a habit to count my EC hubs just to make sure none have gone missing. (OCD) This morning I was surprised to see one of mine lost its designation overnight. There were no edits to it and it still has the same...

On Sunday, I noticed that many of my hubs made the Editor's Choice list. Though I was pleased, I noticed that my views had fallen somewhat. I figured it would take a few days for views to increase since my hubs are no...

My "Inside the Beehive" hub just got the "Editor's Choice" award. After reading the posts about Editor's Choice, I feel like it is like getting the key to the city. It is a great honor,...
