FIXED: Editor's Choice Hubs All Disappeared

    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.

      The hub itself or the EC label?

      1. PegCole17 profile image93
        PegCole17posted 2 years agoin reply to this

        The labels have dropped off and the URLs have changed back to the subdomain. I revised my initial statement to be more specific. Thanks, Tsmog.

      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.

  2. PegCole17 profile image93
    PegCole17posted 2 years ago

    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 like that it makes our URLs more consistent. An explanation or announcement would be nice, though.

    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.

    2. Glenn Stok profile image97
      Glenn Stokposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      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.

        I like that idea, Glenn.

          Peg, I guess they didn't like the idea. It's back the old way.

      PegCole17posted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks for the fast response, Paul. I like the idea of leaving them all under our own subdomain.

    Same thing with me, too.

    This should be fixed now.  Let us know if you still see issues.

    1. Glenn Stok profile image97
      Glenn Stokposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Oh well. I was hoping you'd leave it. But I do see they're back to the main domain.
