What makes my question end up on the 'Hot' list?
I like to ask questions, and so I do, often. I see my questions under the 'Hot' tab and wonder, what makes that question "hot" and some of my other questions not?
Some of my questions will have a lot of answers, and never make the 'hot' list, while others have 1 or 2 answers and appear on the list.
Does it have to do with catagory? Phrasing? I'm so baffled.
What was your views like for them questions? It has to do with that too. If your question gets a lot of people looking that helps it out to rich the Hot tab.
Yeah it just means that lots of people are viewing/commenting/answering your question. You must ask good questions if many of them are on the "hot" list.
It seems to me that questions about trendy topics on HubPages go straight to the hot list. For instance, I asked a question about the pinterest button when it was first introduced, a question about the apprenticeship program when the first group was graduating, and a question about the new profile page when it was first implemented. All of those questions went straight to the top of the hot list before they had any views or answers.
Nice question and i too always wonder the very fact.
Thanks but I am not sure myself. Actually I am going to follow this question really.

When I draft a longish answer (say 300 to 500 words) to a question, I'm given a box with only 3 little lines to write the answer into. I scroll up, scroll down, can't see what I've written. I save, look, edit, look...
