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

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.
Don't know what it means.
I missed this thread and just posted a forum about it. I got one as well.
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...

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic plunges for many hubbers? See link...

I find it hilarious that Hubpages pushes the concept of helping new Hubbers yet my Hub which has had very good reception by the community has been flagged for being both overly promotional and substandard.I had 5 social bookmarking links,and 2 other links to free tools absolutely related to the...

Do we need to verify the niche sites in Google Adsense if a hub is moved to the new domain?

Does Google rate you based on the total number of pageviews to your subdomain or is it broken down my hubs?

In other words:HP puts noindex on hub.Google sees it and de-indexes hub.Later, HP removes the noindex.How long before Google discovers that?In other words:When Google's records indicate a page as noindex, does google initiate a different schedule to return, since google now perceives that page as...

I don't have a link to anything malware that I know about. We can't even put HTML in our profiles any more. Where is this coming from? It's come up three times tonight when I clicked on older posts I have written here. I checked the links in my posts and found nothing from the malware domain. Is it...
