When is a 'hot' hub no longer hot?

    When do the 'hot' hubs pass their sell by dates?  Mine still has a 99 hubscore but it's been taken off the list of hot hubs...just wondered how it worked?

    Hot refers to a traffic and/or activity burst over a very short period of time.  By comparison, a "best" hub is one that is having a lot of activity over a more sustained period of time.

      Ok...I just wondered why it would suddenly get taken off the list.....I suppose the traffic must have dropped making it insufficient to class as hot?

      Cleanclover, please stop answering questions when you don't know the answer.  You've been here long enough that people will think you know what you're talking about, whereas I've never seen you in the help forums before, and your answers indicate you have big gaps in your knowledge.

      As Relache says, "Hot" Hubs are Hubs that have a burst of traffic over a short time period.  Writing evergreen Hubs won't make any difference.
