Really? I seldom notice who has HOTD. That seems a bit odd to say the least, unless this person is a superb writer. Is he?
You tell me
I haven't read them, but at least the summaries are written in good English.
Maybe he used correctly attributed photos?
I have no issue with anyone receiving HOTD when they produce well-written, informative articles.
It must be a tremendous boost to new hubbers to receive this accolade, and the resulting traffic.
Unfortunately, internal traffic pays next to nothing, and many former HOTD winners have reported on the forums that their former HOTDs are now unfeatured due to lack of search engine traffic.
Good luck to the writer. Assuming he is a new member and not the sock of an existing one, then he may be in for a sore disappointment.
I am not one to criticize. I try very hard to say nothing if I have nothing good to say. I'd rather be a supportive hubber. But I do have a question I will pose since we are on the topic of this hub (today's HOTD). How did this hub's summary, and other summaries on this hubber's subdomain get past the summary hub tool which now limits characters in the summaries? They are incredible long or did I miss something.
Probably old summaries. If the hubber was to try to edit them, then the character limitation filter would kick in. My best guess.
I think its advisory only. It doesn't really matter IMO. The general advice is that it should not exceed 150 characters if it is to get a chance to be shown in the Google snippet.
Edit: incredibly long. Also, new hubbers don't have old hubs where they have the choice to keep original summaries.
Those don't seem to be summaries. Every one is taken from the first text capsule of the hub. I doubt that noone is writing a dedicated summary.
That's interesting. A snippet search shows 3 results, all on HP. The hub, author profile and the HP category listing of hubs.
I copyscape picking up more than that?
I like both hubs, and although they are unusual choices for HOTD, I see nothing objectionable about them. Perhaps it was just a fluke that his hubs got chosen twice so close together.
I can say from experience that, while it's exciting and encouraging to have a HOTD, it has no long-term benefits.
He is a good writer. Just out of college and headed to grad school. If he weren't a good writer heading for grad school in history would be pointless.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially...

I've never had only 1 $ on a hub before! This week end I published my first short story and thought the 1 $ was because short story hubs pay terribly low - even lower than poetry hubs! Then I published...

Does anyone know the highest number of hubs published on one account? I saw someone that had over 1000 hubs! I also recall a hubber who has 2500 hubs! That is just insane - especially if they wrote on multiple...
