Sometimes I find a hub published some years back gets selected as Hub of the Day. At other times, I see recently published hub gets selected as Hub Of The Day like the one selected today. So, how does it get selected? randomly?
They put all of the hubs in a sealed box, with no way of knowing or measuring the state of the hubs that are inside.
Due to subatomic decay, each of the hubs could be both 'Hub of the day' and 'Not hub of the day' at the same time. When the thought experiment is completed, the Hub of the Day becomes clear. This is known as 'Schrodinger's Hub.'
Some of what I said above may not be true...
In all seriousness, hubs are chosen as Hub of the Day from the pool of 'Editor's Choice' designated hubs. The HP team decide on hubs of the day depending on the merits of each hub - Layout, content, use of media, authority etc.
As you've seen, they could be new or mature hubs, and there's really no way of knowing if a specific hub is going to be chosen.
Thanks for entertaining. Your point is a known fact. It does not answer the question.
I would like to suggest that my hub (fill in the blank, any hub will do) would be nominated b/c it is so insightful about the subject of ( ______ ) and quite a lot of time (well over 15 min) was poured into it. Thank you for your consideration.
I have gone through this FAQ many times. It is not clear to my point. My point is the procedure of selecting a particular hub for the day. Not about the qualities. There is any norm for selecting old hubs on certain days and recent hubs on other days? Or it is a blind random selection? Because 2 days ago it was a 3 years back hub. I simply wanted to know whether this time differences are in a systematic planned manner or at random.
We've pointed out the only information that is disclosed about this process.
My question to you is, what makes you think that the inclusion of both newer and older Hubs isn't systematic?
I am not saying here that it is not systematic. Nor I have any problem with their procedure. I simply wanted to know the facts and statistics, if any available.
I thought that it is a lengthy procedure starting from the hubs of 8 years back or so. They will go through chronologically from beginning and start selecting in a periodical way so that oldest hubs get selected first and then the next period and next and next so on...... That's what I was thinking about all that . So when I find recently published ones mixed up with oldest ones, I raised this point only for awareness.
I hope knowing things is not a sin.
And I thought that the Hub of the day is the hub published on that very day.
It must be a great feeling to have a hub selected as HotD.
children... do i gotta put you in time out... where's the water hose... The fact of the matter must be that both old and new hubs are considered. - Nice to know... and that there seems to be no rhyme of reason to it. - We have no control over it. It is what it is and we should be glad in it. I haven't had any Hub of the Day designations yet. Congratulations on yours.

Today it is my sad duty to announce that we're retiring Hub of the Day.Site selection is proving to be a more rewarding form of recognition that benefits more Hubbers at once, so it's where our current priorities lie....
