Since the EC landed on my hubs, I have seen a vast improvement in my traffic. I was hit hard back last Sept/Oct and traffic didn't recover, even when others were reporting increases, mine just doddled along. Now, however, it is rising fast and already exceeded what it was last summer.
I thought I'd post this, as there are several threads saying that it hasn't helped. I am sure there must be more hubbers like me who are benefiting from EC. Thank you, HP. xx
Awesome! 12 views instead of 3? Well done you!
As someone apparently not deemed worthy of EC, I have a mixed reaction to the news either way.
That's great news theraggededge! I haven't seen a change in traffic yet with my hubs that were selected for editor's choice, but I will be paying close attention to them in the coming days and weeks
I started writing here in 2009 under a different name. One of my articles was picked up by Associated Press and syndicated across the US in all major newspapers. Other articles were also award winners. Panda updates have pretty much killed a lot of things for good hubbers, and even though I've had a few accolades here and there, both my accounts are suffering. Editor's Choice must be as flighty as a lot of other things at hubpages, inasmuch as there are probably millions of articles to get through for consideration, even bots probably won't pick up great articles for a while. I'm glad that HP staff are aggressive in their approach to keeping HP viable for writers despite Panda slaps, but really, with such über-god in force, there isn't a whole lot that lightening bolts from a demi-god like Panda/Google aimed at the likes of us can do. The new color is Oz is yellow. Ahh, but wait, it's going to change suddenly any time now.

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...

HP Staff has made the decision to retire the Editor’s Choice program. Editor’s Choice articles were high-quality pieces that were hand-selected by staff to receive special recognition on HubPages. However, with the success of the HubPages Network Sites, we feel our resources are much better...

Now with all the fantastic hubs here, the likelihood that I'll be picked for Editor's Choice is pretty low.I've seen some scattered mention of how it works, but no definite clarity. So, for those of us who are new immigrants from Squidoo, and any other newbies, could you explain how it works.I can...

My "Inside the Beehive" hub just got the "Editor's Choice" award. After reading the posts about Editor's Choice, I feel like it is like getting the key to the city. It is a great honor, but it's not good for any thing. It doesn't even show up on my profile...

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...
