I have often wondered, what are the criteria for being selected as one of those hubs showing up on the scrolling featured articles you see on the HP home page before you sign in?
Is it article content alone? Length of article? Length of seniority as a Hubber? Perfect spelling and grammar? (No, that can't be it--some of those hubs I've read contain such errors...)
Does HP track or "know" somehow who is earning what from Google, and feature the high-earners? Is it invitational? Are they hubs commissioned by HP?
I am mystified. I strive to write high-quality, interesting articles, and from the comments I receive from fellow Hubbers, I apparently succeed in that.
Or, is it based exclusively on success in tags and keywords, and high search-engine ranking? (If that is the case, I'm doomed!)
I've been curious ever since I joined as to the source of these articles, some of which interest me greatly, others not at all. But, I do see names there of Hubbers I follow.
Yes I am mystified where most come from. Some are from people who have been here for a while, but now, Most are from new people HP is courting to increase Their list of members to help increase HP's bank account with advertisers.
Hubber Score obviously has a lot to do with it. I've never seen one below 98, and they're mostly 100's. But that doesn't explain it completely.

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the...
