Overnight all my EC hub labels have dropped off my account page including the one that was spotlighted last week. What has happened? Is there a reason?
Perhaps it's a glitch of some sort. I checked and mine are not showing either.
Perhaps your hubs are no longer EC hubs. I had 11 of them now only have 4. The EC status is not permanent. It can be taken off any hub at any moment.
Even the URL has reverted back to my subdomain. If you hover over them for a few seconds it changes as you watch from ...hubpages.pegcole to just our names.
I noticed that too this morning. And the URLs were all changed back to our sub domain, with 301 redirects so any incoming links still work.
Interesting thing is that when I change the filter to "Editors Choice" on that hub stats page, it still shows my 34 hubs that used to be EC, but without the designation.
I don't see any posts about this from staff, which is strange. So I wonder what's going on. I doubt it's a glitch since the 301 redirects were properly set up.
If this is a plan to go back to our subdomains, I like that. At least we get ranking for our EC hubs combined now with the rest of our efforts.
I wonder if it has to do with Paul's post last week about major changes coming in phases that will help to increase traffic. It's the forum about a consultant working with HP to improve the site. I'm not in the EC program, just offering my two cents.
Yes I just checked mine and the "editor's choice" labels have gone.As Glenn said it is strange that HP has just removed them without communicating their intention to do so.
I think this is a bug. I'll have our engineers take a look this morning. We weren't intending to move all ec back to subdomains.
Thanks for that comment and action, Paul. EC seems to be an incentive that Hubbers don't want to lose and it's one I appreciate very much.
Paul, but now that it's been done, maybe it's best to leave them there. Constant switching back and forth with 301 redirects back and forth must really confuse search engine indexing. What do you think? You can still leave the EC designation, but with the hubs in the subdomain.
Thanks for the fast response, Paul. I like the idea of leaving them all under our own subdomain.
This should be fixed now. Let us know if you still see issues.

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...

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...

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...

I was really excited when some of my hubs were awarded Editor's Choice, but it seemed to make little difference to number of page views to those hubs. However, getting two HOTD has been great! One of my HOTD was also an...

The EC program is a means of removing the best articles from our sub-domains and giving them to the main HP site hubpages.com.As Cardisa so rightly pointed out inhttp://hubpages.com/forum/topic/129147#post2714297The...

This morning I stumbled over more than a couple of "Editor's Choice" Hubs which are blatantly using images they do not appear to have the rights to use. Since HP is pushing Editor's Choice as the very best of...
