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 make it a habit to count my EC hubs just to make sure none have gone missing. (OCD) This morning I was surprised to see one of mine lost its designation overnight. There were no edits to it and it still has the same 70 comments and 42 original pictures of a method and a recipe. The only...

I had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google for the keywords that brought it all the traffic before EC messed it up. How can I...

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...

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...

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...

HP Staff has made the decision to retire the Editor’s Choice program. Editor’s Choice articles were high-quality pieces that were hand-selected by staff to receive special recognition on HubPages. However, with the success of the HubPages Network Sites, we feel our resources are much better...
