I logged in this morning and saw Editor's Choice for the first time, alongside one of my hubs.
How come they don't pick the one you'd have liked yourself? The one you think is best/better?
It's a good, but bad, feeling all in one.
Now I'll be interested to see if it makes one iota of difference to stats/traffic/income etc.
Congrats with the achievement? Curious about the stats... Saw many people blaming the whole Editor's Choice program and accusing it for bringing the traffic down... How's your status so far?
We probably haven't viewed your "best" Hub yet. It's going to take us time to get through all of the Editor's Choice candidates. Congratulations! It's not easy to have a Hub chosen!
I have two editors choice, the traffic on one is way down and the traffic on the other is a bit better. However, traffic on the first one was already going down before it became an 'editor's choice', so I am unable to tell what would have happened if it had been left as it was. Personally, I don't think it has made very much difference yet.
I don't understand? It seems to me that the Editor's Choice could only help your hub. Why do people believe that it drives traffic down? Very interesting though if it does.
It changes the hub of the url. So you lose links and bookmarks. And there is no evidence yet that the new url gets more search traffic.
I think the old links just redirect to the new location don't they? I don't think you completely lose the original subdomain link.
"It changes the hub of the url."
Well, either that or the url of the hub.
But you won't lose links or bookmarks; both will still direct a reader to your hub. You may lose google juice from those links - depending on where they are that could be good or bad.
I was just mortified that I lost my high amount of Facebook likes on one of them, and no I haven't regained them.
They're breeding.... more ECs now.
Of the first one, phenomenal traffic... huge. I shouldn't tell you or you'll be jealous, but I'll just hint that you won't need the fingers on your second hand if you're counting the visitors today.

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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.

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...
