I don't see any advantage in it, because I didn't know that you could click on the accolade for Hub of the Day either. I wonder how many do. It would be alot of work for Hubpages without many advantages.
Thanks Robin. I was also wondering about the individual hubs being marked as Editor's Choice. I always see the Hub of the Day pictured next to the hub title. Is there any chance you'll ever mark the hubs that are Editor's Choices the same way?
I don't this is the same thread which is four weeks old - I was just replying to it. Not sure how I remove an once it has been posted the first time! Sorry if the frog was irritating you but the thread is now closed -you won't need to see it again. Myy thanks to Robin.
Yes it has been eaten sadly but thank goodness it was not just the legs we had to eat! Check out how to make your own Edible Bread Frog on my Pages, I have no intention of sharing my frog next time! Hey, I think we went off the subject somewhat there! You have a great day.
Marcy Goodfleisch -glad you like the frog - one should never give up baking - especially when it involves making edible bread frogs. Thanks for your input - here's hoping HubPages Staff think it is a good idea.
Hi Sally, I really liked your suggestion. One of the problems with showing all EC Hubs is that some Hubbers have many EC Hubs and the UI on this would be awkward; this is not usually the case with HOD Hubs.
We talked a lot about Hubber suggestions in our last meeting. We are working on ways to better listen to and implement Hubber ideas. One of our concerns is the maintenance of the new features. All of the features on the site need to be maintained (many times maintaining older features prevents us from creating new, more likely to be used features.) We get a lot of suggestions, and we don't like telling Hubbers that we can't implement their ideas, but the reality is that even if a feature is easy to create, it may take significant man power to maintain within the entire site structure. I think this is something that is often overlooked - it was by me until it was explained by our engineers. I just wanted you to have an idea of our point of view when reviewing features. Many times we think they are great, but we just don't have the resources to implement everything. We also have to weigh what we feel will impact the most Hubbers, e.g., mobile was a significant and time consuming improvement that benefited all Hubbers. Thanks again for your suggestions! We do appreciate them, even if we can't implement them all.
HI Robin That is not a problem - I completely understand and I appreciate your taking the time to putting the suggestion forward. it is always nice to know that the idea was considered even if it could not be implemented. Thank you, Sally
After reading your response, I can understand why the suggestion would be difficult to maintain if implemented. As I read, another idea popped into my head that may serve as an alternative. This idea would list all Editor's Choice hubs by all members. Would it be possible to add a browse category for hubs labeled "Editor's Choice Hubs". It could be either a main category on the first page under the main categories or perhaps a subcategory under each of those.
Marie Flint Hello, yes, I am aware of that - you would probably not be able to do this until a person had more than five Editors Choice Hubs, that is at the moment but maybe that could changed to one - not sure if HubPages Staff would agree to putting this into motion. - it seemed to me though that if this is being done for Hub of the Day, then it could just as easily be done for Editors Choice Hubs. We will have to wait and see! Sally
I don't see the point in publicising a user's Editor's Choice Awards. It will just become a Thieves Charter. Hey these are the good hubs, let's steal those! Let's face it, EC is just an experiment to see how well good hubs do when back on the main domain.
An EC designation doesn't necessarily mean that a Hub gets a lot of search engine traffic. I opted out of the EC program, but so many Hubbers have reported that their EC Hubs are some which didn't get much traffic.
I think it is time that the staff gave everyone some feedback on the entire EC program, what it was meant to accomplish and if Google has been impressed with the effort.
Writer Fox I have nine and they are pretty much in a niche subject. They continue to get a fair bit of traffic - but they were doing well before that. My problem is that I have more writing on the same subject which have somehow escaped the Editors Choice Hubs Net. The quality of them is equal to those selected - I don't think that there are enough real people to real all the Hubs - it makes me feel frustrated. There are so many things which are not being addressed - perhaps Hubbers need a committee of some sort to work in our interests. Perhaps Billybuc could be our spokesman, once he has received a reply to his open letter!
I think you'll have to be patient regarding the overall effect of the EC hubs project (as with most things in this sphere). Some hubs will see an immediate benefit from being EC, others could take months to see improvement, if at all. It's a long term experiment. E.g. one of my hubs that has been EC for a good few months has only just started to pick up.
P.S. you can nominate your own hubs for EC if you want to.
I tried doing it for one which I felt needed to be with one of it because of it's content - but so far, not a sausage - it takes real people to read them and I guess I have to realize that you have just had thanksgiving in the States - patience is a virtue they say! I will try to practice some from today.
Just curious, one of my hubs, selected as a hub of the day some time ago has been my top performing one for quite a while. However, it does seem odd to me that hubs of the day are not automatically selected as Editors...
Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and...
Editors Choice piece starting to fall drasticallyI have one EC article in total, and when it was selected, it was like a 97 or 98, but today its an 83 and falling. I want to delete the hub because it isnt doing well,...
Hi,Is there any standard on how many tags we need to use for a hub?Is it OK to use 25 tags for a 500 word hub?How many tags do you guys use? (hope I am not asking for closely guarded secret here)I would appreciate if...
