I had a message today that I have been 'selected' for HubPro - does this mean that an editor will change my work without my consent? I am confused about what I have read here on the site.
I like the idea of help to improve my work, but am concerned that as I do not have a copy of all my hubs, I will not be able to revert back to the original if I do not like what has been done?
I would welcome advice from Hubbers who have had the HubPro process applied to their hubs - should I just select the 'no' button or should I go ahead - what benefits have you seen in how your hubs have performed since editing - or has it gone the other way for you??
Thank you, Alison
It means that if you do not want the editor to make changes you need to tell them right now and change the Hubpro setting in your profile. It is better to do this quickly to avoid the editor wasting their effort.
Or just maybe see how it goes if this is a hub you don;t have strong feelings about.
Here is some information to read before you make a decision:

Hi, Alison! Your editor will contact you about the edits and will collaborate with you via email. If you prefer, they can make the changes in a different capsule. Once the editing process is over, you will receive a link to your Hub before it was edited as well as a document that shows all of the changes that were made. Your Hubs are already really good, so I don't see there being significant changes. Most, Hubbers are nervous before their Hubs are edited, but are happy with the results.
Unless you opt-out, it means an editor is supposed to contact you about working with you. They do not start working on your material right away after you see the HUGE green notice, and it might even be several weeks before you are actually contacted by a human about it.
I'm trying HubPro myself at the moment, because I think it's the only way to find out 1) what the experience is really like, and 2) if it improves things the way HubPages has said it does.
I probably am less hung up on letting HubPages experiment with my content than other site users given I've been here so long, have multiple accounts and have written for a variety of content sites for the last decade.
Here is some additional information and feedback regarding HubPro.

After that notice, I had another notice as to which 5 hubs they were going to edit. I copied them and pasted into word. But when the editor was finished she marked all of her changes so that I could have deleted them if I had wished to.
I did not. The changes were okay, and a few things that I did not care for she changed before she was finished.
It is difficult to tell if there was an improvement in traffic since everyones traffic has gone down about 20% recently. I can tell you that there were no negative changes in traffic.
Thank you Robin and everyone who has posted helpful links and for your comment DrMark about your experience of the process and how easy it would be to change a hub back if required. I am going to go with the process and look forward to learning from my HubPro Editor.
Just one more question - it has been two weeks now since I got the notification, but I still have not been contacted by an Editor. How long do you think it will be before I hear?
Congratulations miss Alison. You got a very nice thing going. I like the way you write. Your hubs looks good. Let us know how it goes with the hub pro. Somtimes we worry for something that it is no reason to worry. Keep up the good work.
