I wrote an article on the US economy which I noted was the top Hot hub under the Economy section. I have promoted it a bit and it's had a bit of traffic but I'm somewhat surprised. Anyone know how this feature works i.e. how do you get to be Hot? And is it worth working at being Hot?
While I'm at it how do you become Featured?
Thanks in advance for any knowledge you can share.

In all the time I've been writing on the web (first started on Amazon in 2004), I've never been any good at selling products on the web. I don't know why that is. I know people who make a packet at promoting products on the web. And I know there are people who make a good amount on HP even though...

I have kept quiet about this for a while now, but after the Panda update I saw my traffic drop a little then normalize (as expected after any Google update).However since I made the changes required by Hubpages (and I assume changes enforced upon everybody else) I have seen steadily declining...
