    It may sound like a small issue but it really thrilled me when I opened my account this morning. My Hub on Butterflies sent me a butterflying sensation which I never expected. I am sure many senior Hubbers might have achieved this but I would love to hear their experiences about 'Editor's Choice'. I am sure there may be others like 'writinglover' who also got it earlier today.

      Good for you!  I've got a few myself as well and yes, it's a good feeling to be recognized.  Hopefully it will result in some traffic as well.

        How do you know, one way or the other?

          We never will, actually.  A guess as to cause of increasing (or decreasing) traffic is all we'll have for weeks or months at best, forever more likely.

          Best we might do is keep an eye on traffic and indexing into HP rather that subdomains.  If there is a large change in traffic at the same time it is indexed it is probably probably! due to being in HP rather than the subdomain.  Or it may take google until the next panda run to change traffic, whereupon we won't know much at all.

            I suppose they will come up with some kind of signal for the account's page.

            Wait and see time, I suppose. See if the fish come back.

              Well, I'm waiting to see the red arrows along with the "choice" flag.  Or blue everywhere else, as the case may be. 

              But yes, I will wait a while to see what happens.

          There's a big Editor's Choice stamp next to the hub on your account page. If you've got one you can't miss it.

            Ok, thanks.

            I had around a hundred pages in the top domain when the algo did the choosing. It would be nice to see the same number this time. lol. But only if it gets them clear of Panda, of course.

            I seem to remember reading a page by Paul that said moving pages to new subs or the top domain did work but only for a few months. Problem is I can't find the page in his account. Did you ever read that page? Or did anyone else?

              Yeah I'd love a good few more of my hubs back on the main domain too.

              I've had a look around for the info you're after but can't find it and can't really recall it either hmm. There was something about Paul moving some of his hubs to a new subdomain - BBQ related - but I can't remember the ins and outs.

              EDIT: just noticed something confusing. I did a search for...

              site:hubpages.com/hub/

              ...to see how many hubs had been put back on HP's main domain and Google is showing 2,800,000.

              Puzzling hmm.

                If you try this search:

                site:hubpages.com/hub/ Taking antibiotics can make you very sick, some can also cause death. It happened to me after being given clindamycin. I'm grateful I lived to tell about it.

                And hit  'repeat the search with the omitted results included,' you get 4 instances of a page by vocalcoach, one at the main dom and 3 in her sub but from different category pages.

                hubpages.com › ... › Health › Personal Health Information and Self-Help‎

                vocalcoach.hubpages.com/hub/AntibioticsCanKill‎
                vocalcoach.hubpages.com › ... › Heart Disease and Age‎
                vocalcoach.hubpages.com › Explore › Health‎

                I don't think this a problem. But then I've never run a megasite.

                  I find that strange and unexpected. 4 indexed url's for a hub just doesn't seem right. But like you, I've never run a megasite either. If I did, I would be doing it remotely, from a tropical beach somewhere lol.

                  I'm sure last time I checked, the number of HP's indexed pages was around 650,000 - that was just after Google put hubs back on sub url's.

                  *Shrugs*

                  Don't know what it means.

                    That's not four URLs.  It's a listing for the Description Tag (HubPages Summary) of a Hub.  It means that the Hub's summary is showing on the Topic Pages, the Author's Subdomain Profile and the Hub itself. It's the same Hub and just one URL.

      I just saw today one of my hubs in the stats shows it's been selected as editor's choice. I am super excited about this but I don't think readers will actually know about it as I don't see anywhere in the hub itself any icon or mention of being editor's choice. They say hub will be promoted by HubPages and shown on HubPages.com. I hope that means more traffic to the hub...
