This editor's choice thingy takes my articles from my sub domain url, puts them on the main domain url.
BAM! Page rank is lost.
How do I opt out? Can someone teach me or direct me where to do so?
This editor choice doesn't improve my traffic nor has any SEO benefits.
Okay, I just sent Hubpages an email. I don't know if there are better ways to do this.
The links from your old subdomain URL were supposedly redirected to the new URL when your Hub became an EC. Some PageRank would be lost, but are you saying you lost all of the PageRank you had? One thing to remember is that this is the first PR update since February of 2013. Given that it's been 10 months since an update, it may not be just the redirect but a devaluation of the backlinks due to Google Penguin. I opted out of the EC program because I didn't want any of my Hubs' URLs to change. However, since some of yours have already had the URL changed once, are you sure you want to change them again?
The option can be enabled or disabled in your profile settings.
Be careful when you use this. It can only be changed once every 60 days I believe. Wouldn't it be better to wait a while, a bit longer, before deciding whether to disable it?

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...

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...
