    How does one's questions become "hot" or "best"?

    I recently found one of my questions under the "hot" questions. I was excited, but I have no idea what it did to get there. There's only five answers after all smile

    It is done by an algorithm (a list of well-defined instructions) It is not done by staff member. Hubscore play a big role in determining what is best sometimes hot. Hubs that have proven to be quality and gain traffic. Also question asked about Hupages help too.

    It seems that when I ask a question pertaining to Hubpages, it goes right under "hot". Other questions.....not so much. Other than asking hub related questions I do not know. I prefer to look under latest and save hot for last.

    After looking over it a lot of the "hot" and "best" questions it seems like the hot questions tend to get a ton of views while the best questions tend to get more answers.
