Where can i view my editor's choice hubs on hubpages.com? I can only find the hub of the day section and what benefit is there of having an EC hub?
I have noticed that EC hubs are featured on the site of your main dashboard, and my guess is that they receive more promotion and subsequently more views. Would love to have one!
Don't worry if none of your hubs are EC. They are basically an experiment by HP, checking to see if putting hubs back onto the main domain do better than those on individual subdomains.
It is true they only choose hubs which meet their high criteria and if you think any of yours fit the bill, you can nominate them to staff.
They don't get extra promotion. The main HP platform is far more powerful than individual subdomains, with a much higher page rank. Hubs should do better there, but not always.
I decided to opt out of the EC scheme just over a month ago and it’s made very little difference to the traffic to my hubs. Those that were EC and had good traffic continue to have it and those that were EC and had poor traffic (the majority) also continue not to have much traffic.
I think the key is to just to keep writing about things that interest you and the traffic will grow organically. Don’t worry too much about the EC scheme. As IzzyM says it is still very much an experiment.
On the other hand .... Having a Hub of the Day is great! That has made a huge difference to the hubs chosen.
A few months ago I opted out of EC because one of my hubs started losing traffic. I decided to test the thing again since some people were reporting good news. The same hub which suffered is suffering again. HP has also chosen one of my best traffic hubs as EC and I am watching closely to see if that hubs will suffer as well.
I have two hubs chosen and there really is no traffic change. All it does is put the hub back on the main domain and makes you feel like you accomplished something. It’s a nice thing to have but relies on actually being nominated by someone (I think). So don’t worry if nobody has nominated one of yours. Just because none of your hubs have been chosen does not mean none are worthy.

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"...

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...

People are reporting that if a Hub gets made Editor's Choice, it loses its Facebook likes.This sounds like a real issue to me.http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/115381

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...

I just received an email congratulating me for one of my hubs being selected as "Editor's Choice". It didn't tell me which hub was selected however and I checked my stats and there is no new hub labelled "editor's Choice." Does anyone know how long it takes to show up?
