I have a question about the Hub Of The Day. I was wondering, does a Hub Of The Day have to be freshly published to get the Hub Of The Day or can it be a hub published a few weeks ago?
Kathryn Stratford is right. The Hubs of the Day are chosen by merit alone and can be new or old Hubs.
It wouldn’t surprise me if it’s not a very technical process.
I know it won’t ever be my hub. It scares people off too quickly!
Thanks Susi for all your posts. Keep ‘em coming. I receive an email every time you submit a new one.
It doesn't have to be newly published. I have seen several that were months old win it.
Thank you for clarifying that, Kathryn. Congrats to you, you were awarded the Hub Of The Day with your excellent hub about staying productive whilst unemployed, I can learn so much from that hub.
They put my pages to one side and make a selection from the remaining ones.
I recall seeing a post/blog post/email stating that staff pick them based on criteria they've outlined but will accept/consider recommendations.
Cool. I have seen the part about the recommendations, but do you have any idea about how they pick from all of the hubs? I imagine they only do featured hubs with a score of 80 or over or something like that.
They have some guidelines for what hubs will be chosen as Hubs Of The Day;
Only hubs with legally attributed images may be allowed. So, that means you need the name, licence and website. That is the most important one.
You also need well capitalized, search friendly titles and grammatically correct writing. They also want an image which will fit the size of the signed out Hubages carousel, that is it must at least 150 pixels tall and 200 wide.
I am working towards getting a Hub Of The Day, by legally attributing my images (properly) and writing lengthy hubs. I would love to get a Hub Of The Day, I just need to keep working towards it.
I have no idea, Ben. It's a mystery to me. I would think it's a pretty huge site to cover when looking at all available hubs everyday to pick one.

I would like a better explanation of the Hub Score. I have a Hub that I uploaded on May 12th, it's ranked #2 on Google search results for its main keyword phrase, it's getting 175 visits per day sent by Google, but the Hub Score is only 78. Is that because someone at MTurk didn't like...

I just want to make sure I am clear on the transition information. My stuff transferred overnight, so that means that I have 4 months to clear up skulls etc before the hubs get moderated, correct?I am going to have to completely revamp quite a few former lenses due to the fact that much of my...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

Hello to everyone.Yesterday I created my HubPages account and published my first Hub. I also already answered one question (on 'answers' section), followed some topics. What is making me frustrated is that since the time my account was created, my Hubber Score has only been dropping, no matter what...

I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and informative comments. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.What makes...

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I asked a question about recipes and received lots of great replies. How do I make a...
