    Editors Choice piece starting to fall drastically

    I have one EC article in total, and when it was selected, it was like a 97 or 98, but today its an 83 and falling. I want to delete the hub because it isnt doing well, but dont want to lose my accolade. Does anyone know if I remove an editors choice hub if the accolade goes with it?

    I have tried editing the hub and nothing seems to change the direction of the score, it just keeps dropping and I dont know what to do sad

    Don't worry about its score dropping give it time and it may well start rising again.

    Be patient, don't delete. A hubscore of 83 is not that bad at all. I've experienced the same, almost 20 point drop and it came back up eventually (however, not an EC, I opted out). Many factors affect hub score. Regarding EC accolade, I think you would have to opt out to lose the accolade. Not sure about deleting one hub. It could be the fact that EC is causing the performance issue. Re-evaluate whether you want to stay with the EC program but keep the hub. Tweak it and promote it periodically and it will rise again, hopefully.

    Do you think I should try and tweak it all or just let it sit?

    I would never be in a hurry to delete-- especially on that basis. Scores and numbers can seem very arbitrary, they jump around like fleas on a hot griddle and are given far too much attention.  My advice would be to leave it alone, let it 'age", perhaps do some improving at a later time.
    Ignore it for awhile and write some new hubs.

    Kathleen, I have three 'Editor's Choice' hubs, but they all have quite low scores 78, 76, and 71. They seemed to have quite a few views before they became 'Editor's Choice" but since then they have had very few. It's strange that these don't get as many views as a lot of my other hubs, but I won't delete them because they may go up eventually and I did put a lot of research into them.

    Kathleen, why don't you try promoting your hub on various FB groups, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn? I've been slowly doing that with my older hubs that I posted when I didn't have many followers. That gets me some new traffic.

    What are your page views versus comments on the EC hub? I wouldn't delete anything without sending it out for another go around.

      I share it alot! Its my article on Bradley Manning. Rarely it gets a good flow of traffic but for the most part traffic goes elsewhere. Its a pretty specific topic and not something a lot of people still think or talk about, try as I might.
