    I am thrilled to see today that one of my hubs was awarded an Editor's Choice tag next to it! Does anyone know what the criteria is for this award? I'd like to earn more! big_smile

      When the elves, chasing the girl elves through the files, trip and fall they will sometimes fall onto a hub.  This maddens them (the girl gets away) and they occasionally fling the hub far away, where it can fall into the EC bin.  The fairies there pin a new tag on it and relocate it away from the elves; it has become an Editor's Choice Hub.

    I didn't have any for several months after they introduced Editor's Choice, then one hub was chosen, then five, now I have eleven of them. They are not new hubs, all were already published when the program started. So, to answer your question, I don't know.

      Eleven! How cool is that? Congrats! I did read about the program, though, and learned that those EC awards can be taken away since there is a specified number of ECs allowed site-wise at any given time. sad

    The criteria for an EC hub is simply a hub that is well-written and of a decent length. A 300 word hub entitled "All about Whales" just doesn't cut it.

    It amazes me how happy people feel to get one, when quite possibly all of their hubs are well-written.

    The whole EC program is an EXPERIMENT to see if good hubs do better on the main HP domain than they would on individual subdomains.

    HP want to raise the bar so that the whole site will benefit.

    Between EC and the QAP program, Hubpages hope to give good writers a boost while denying poor writers a platform. They still have some way to go but they are moving in the right direction.

    Hey, that's great news and quite an accomplishment indeed. Never worry about the criterion. That's what makes it that much more special. If you begin trying to target an award, it sort of loses some value.

    The recognition is testimonial to your hard work and quality hubs. Contrats!

    I've had a bunch of EC Hubs, which I'm not fully sure I would have chosen myself. Good thing the Editors know better. I Like Them.

    To be honest i had a bunch of EC awards and found it damaged my views of hubs and so i opted out of the program. since then views have gone back up.
    so you decide, not sure it is a help from HP.
