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!
Congratulations! Here is the thread... http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/115372
Congratulations! Only a select few Hubs are chosen!
Congratulations! That's quite an accomplishment!
Congratulations WL! I bet that the editors cheered you up Are you going to put it in your spotlight ?
Sure am! I now have new hope for myself on Hubpages! Time to update some more! Whoopeee!
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!
Hugs, Faith Reaper
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.
After seeing this, I went back and checked my hubs...I have an editor's choice, as well!! I was just as surprised as you were! And honored, as well! Can't believe it!
You're living the dream, girl. You're living the dream! Congratulations! :-)
A few of my hubs got that distinction as well. Hrmm, going to read up on that now.
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?
It's very confusing to search engines to change the actual URL of a webpage.
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.
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.
Congratulations, writinglover. I'm happy for you after you were so down a couple days ago. You are valued!
Congratulations! I also had the honour to have one this morning and it is absolutely thrilling!
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.
I only lost one like and that one was mine when I posted it on FB so it doesn't bother me a twit.
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.
(If the boost from the Editor's Choice thing gets me more hits, I'll be happy).
Congo i have never heard such type of thing i hope my hub is also choosen..
Thank you, Mark!
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.
Perhaps they'll choose my Bubblews article. Joke. Well done writinglover. I opted out.
Sounds good. Would you prefer a higher hub score and an award or actual MONEY?

Today I logged into my account to see that not only one but FOUR of my hubs were chosen as 'Editor's Choice' hubs. I'm ecstatic!!!I do not know what this would mean to my four selected hubs, but I guess nothing bad. All the four hubs were pretty old (compared to how long I've been here, which is 3...

I opened my Hp site today and was surprised to have 10 "Editor's choice" selected for my hubs. I wonder how many did you get. No hidden agenda; just curious.

I had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google for the keywords that brought it all the traffic before EC messed it up. How can I...

I was pleasantly surprised when I logged into HP this morning and found that my most recent hub has been tagged with the "Editor's Choice" icon. Yay! After all these months with no EC nods, I was starting to wonder if I'd offended the Powers That Be somehow. ("Could it be my...

I make it a habit to count my EC hubs just to make sure none have gone missing. (OCD) This morning I was surprised to see one of mine lost its designation overnight. There were no edits to it and it still has the same 70 comments and 42 original pictures of a method and a recipe. The only...

On Sunday, I noticed that many of my hubs made the Editor's Choice list. Though I was pleased, I noticed that my views had fallen somewhat. I figured it would take a few days for views to increase since my hubs are no longer on my subdomain but on the main HP domain. However, I checked on my...
