Editors Choice - to Choose or Not to Choose!
About one third of my Hubs are Editors Choice Hubs. I am wondering if I should opt out at this late stage of the day?
Are Editors choice hubs still being awarded and if so is there any evidence to say that they are performing better or worse than those without this status?
I've heard stats both ways, Sally, as being improved and hindered in traffic from the Editor's Choice feature. I had disengaged for awhile, but then read an explanation from Hub Pages team about how Editor's Choice do get special treatment, supposedly exposing the hubs in this category to greater traffic potentiial. So, I reactivated my hubs and have left them that way ever since.
In considering my answer, be aware of two things: 1) I'm not the best income earner here at Hub Pages, and 2) when you reinstate the Editor's Choice feature, all the hubs that were listed that way return as Editor's Choices.
So, experiment as your heart desires and let us know how you do.
It is a difficult decision but you make it a little easier when you say that the Editors Choice Hubs would be re-instated should I change my mind. My Editors Choice hubs are not performing as well as I think they should be at the moment.

On Sunday, I noticed that many of my hubs made the Editor's Choice list. Though I was pleased, I noticed that my views had fallen somewhat. I figured it would take a few days for views to increase since my hubs are no...

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...

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...
