I’ve seen the nomination forms. But I am not sure exactly what goes into picking them. I know they have to fit into what is called the “stellar hub” category outlined somewhere around here. But I do believe it takes fellow hubbers to nominate a hub to it.
Not by any significant amount. I have 37 hits on the new EC hub. And I get around 300 hits per day on my collection of hubs. My traffic has seemed to even out to around 250 - 300 per day over my 26 hubs. When Editor’s Choice is made on one, it does not change except for the few who saw this thread looking for which one it is I think.
