Editor's Choice Hub
One of my hubs has received more than 2000 visitors within three months, but it has not been selected as Editor's Choice. What is the most essential thing required for Editor's Choice Hub. Please explain.
To get "editor's choice," all you have to do is impress the editors...end of story. You might not particularly even WANT or BENEFIT from it, it's a toss up either way...because an editor's choice selection takes your hub OUT of your subdomain. I have 15 or so....can't remember....my highest scored hub is NOT an editor's choice one.
It's nice to get the nod from the editors, but do NOT think it is some sort of thing which means you're page is particularly special...it's just the opinion of the editors here, and they don't really know what is going to be most successful than any other person who studies the web...no human knows what is going to get hot, make money, etc...because chaos is the rule, change, the one constant in an infinite and expanding universe.
As Wesman described, it seems to be a random choice. Some of my lowest scoring or least visited hubs have been given the Editor's Choice, while the higher scoring and most popular hubs have not.
I've got some I would be sure would deserve that if it were an honor...others? No clue why they picked them.
I have a Hub with well over a million views, it hovers around a HP score of 75, has over 100 comments (Over 2 years) and it's not an Editor's Choice either. So I don't know the answer. My Editors Choice Hub does get about 2000 views each day.
That's what I am asking! It means there is no fixed criterion for selection of a hub to be Editor's Choice. It all depends upon Editor's choice.

I had not realized until today that if someone has earned a Hub of the Day Accolade you can click on the icon on their profile page to read the contents of the Hubs which have earned the accolade. I am wondering if HubPages Staff might like like to consider doing the same thing with the...

The editors choice can be a great accolade, unfortunately I know many of the best hubbers I have discovered are frustrated with the EC system, or have given up on it all completely. Some days the hubs are great, other days they are poor quality, with rampant spelling and grammar errors. I know some...

I had 11 Editors Choice hubs. I noticed today that I only have 10 of them now. I don't remember exactly which hub lost the EC status but I have a feeling it might be a hub that has become unfeatured due to engagement. If an EC hub becomes unfeatured due to engagement does it lose EC status? And if...

I see that one of my hubs was named Editor's Choice. But I don't see any notice of that to the 'outside world" - that is, I only see a tag next to the hub's title in my account. I'll certainly promote in on my FB page but you'd think it would get a gold star or something next to the title on...

Just curious, one of my hubs, selected as a hub of the day some time ago has been my top performing one for quite a while. However, it does seem odd to me that hubs of the day are not automatically selected as Editors Choice Hubs as well! Anyone else ever wondered why this is? If not, would...

This morning I stumbled over more than a couple of "Editor's Choice" Hubs which are blatantly using images they do not appear to have the rights to use. Since HP is pushing Editor's Choice as the very best of this site, so much so that they are giving people who opt into the program some...
