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 know there's been a lot of discussion on the forums about the Editor's Choice hubs. First, I want to say that I really appreciate all the hard work and creativity that the HP staff put into our community, but I guess I just don't understand the idea behind the Editor's Choice hubs. I...

Really cool to see that my hub, <link snipped>, was just picked as Editor's Choice. Can anyone tell me what it means, and maybe how to capitalize on or leverage this bump?Thanks!

There has been a major change on the HP platform that was not announced to the writing community.Go to one of your Hubs and look at the top where the breadcrumb navigation is. It now reads: your subdomain > main Topic category only (I presume that this is not the case for...

Whoo-hoo! I've just had one of my hubs (about the Cardiff Giant hoax) selected as Editor's Choice. I'm really pleased as it shows I'm doing something right. However, when I've looked through the HP Forum Comments about how this will affect the number of views the hub gets, it seems as though this...

After changing the title of the hub, the URL remains the same. Does it affect the existing traffic or the position on Google ? How often the title could be changed ? Is it advisable or not ?
