There is one HOTD every day - however if there are 20 stellar hubs every week then some great hubs will miss out. Why not create a Hubs of the Week (HOTW) and Hubs of the Month (HOTM) - these pages would feature all stellar hubs no matter how many qualify!
That's a cool idea! The problem is... I don't know if we actually have enough stellar Hubs to sustain it. My backup supply of HoDs is typically only ten Hubs deep at any given time (not because we don't have stellar Hubs aplenty, but because so few of them legally use images, or cite them in a manner that makes it possible for us to verify that they're legally used, which is a requirement for this class of Hubs).
Just for reference (not for you, SimeyC- I know you're covered , but for others seeing this thread), we detail the citation format we presently need to verify proper image attribution in our Learning Center guide on proper image use.
Simone: I know you answered this for me before but I'm still confused. When one purchases an image from, say, ClipArt.com, CA has their own policy that states we have to cite any reference to an image as: © 2012 www.clipart.com. You explained to me that HP would like the citation to read: Image purchased from Clipart.com. Then there is a Source URL and if I give this URL then someone could potentially access this image, which isn't theirs to have, thus, putting me in jeopardy of losing my subscription to CA. So how do I get around not providing information that would cause this issue? Any suggestions, or could you provide a "sample" of what the citation page should look like? Thanks!--Deb

Hi folks,As you know, when you're editing a hub, one of the areas that helps you reach the 'stellar' hub levels is the number of images that you include. You might be wondering why this is important - The main reason is because images *really* matter for SEO.As a comparison, here's my traffic from...

Take one of your old hubs, update it with new content, better photos, improved titles and add some additional modules (make it a stellar hub effectively) and then post it here for critique!

I think I know something about writing articles. I created a new hub yesterday. HubPages took 24 hours before declaring, in one of their mystery messages, that it was of sufficient quality. You know what? It was too good. I deleted it and will now easily place it elsewhere and earn with it.No...

Simone just posted a great and informative sticky thread in the blue fields at the top, but I was afraid people may not notice 'the fine print' in it. The April contest for producing 'stellar' hubs is postponed, but they're hoping to get it back on track soon.Thanks for sharing all the neat...
