    I was just looking at my stats not too long and I noticed that this was this little banner that said Editor's choice! Put my mouse over it and it said it was selected by editors and it will be promoted by Hubpages! Wow! I wasn't expecting this at all! I don't know who to thank, but thanks so much for choosing my Pre-Civil War hub! big_smile

    Woo hoo ... Awesome, writinglover!!!  I have never heard of such, but congratulations to you!  Really cool, and thanks for letting us know of such.  Yes, that is a good idea Romeos has, to place that super star hub in your spotlight!

      Well, I just now read about this a minute ago under edit my profile and was changing things around and I saw this new setting about Editor's Choice award! This is excellent for you. Yes, please keep on doing what you are doing!

    Congrats.  Nice they are doing something different. The only hubs for featuring that seem to be picked are how-to's, history or location information these days.  That counts me out.

    Doesn't that mean that your Hub is going to be moved off of your subdomain and onto the main HubPages domain?  Is that what you wanted? Isn't that how many Google indexing problems developed and continue?

    1. wilderness profile image99
      wildernessposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Not sure they were indexing "problems".  Nearly all of mine that google "removed" from the subdomain did much better.  None did worse.

  17. Writer Fox profile image47
    Writer Foxposted 5 years ago

    It's very confusing to search engines to change the actual URL of a webpage.

    1. wilderness profile image99
      wildernessposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Then perhaps Google will be happy to see it back to what it liked in the first place.  No one ever understood just why google did that and they wouldn't tell.

      Paul did run some tests on his own hubs, though, and it didn't seem to make much difference when he went back and forth.

  18. Writer Fox profile image47
    Writer Foxposted 5 years ago

    The post says that a Hub will be temporarily moved to the main domain, and then go back to the subdomain.  What do you think Google will think of that revolving URL theory?  I opted out.

    "The Editor’s Choice status is not necessarily permanent.  At any given time, only a small percentage of Hubs will be designated Editor’s Choice."

    Paul's Hub that he published two weeks ago shows a 404 for a Google cache.  This is a crawling problem.

    Not to be a party pooper but did you lose all your facebook likes on the hub etc?  There's been reporting that that has happened.

    1. writinglover profile image85
      writingloverposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I only lost one like and that one was mine when I posted it on FB so it doesn't bother me a twit. tongue

      1. toptendeals profile image78
        toptendealsposted 5 years agoin reply to this

        Well that's a relief.  I get a few so it isn't a big deal for me either.  Just a bit scary that someone could lose thousands of social media shares because they got awarded.  You can opt-out but you have to have known about this new policy!

    My hubs don't get a whole lot of FB likes either. hmm

    And Mayank 147! It's a new thing. You might want to check you stats page and look at your hubs. You just might find that black banner that says "Editor's Choice" on it. big_smile
