Is it necessary to label hubs as 'Editor's choice' in the related hubs section below each hub?
Do you think that the hubs in the related hubs section, should be labelled as 'Editor's choice' hubs? Does it not take away the attention of the reader/ visitor from other related hubs, which may also be very well written hubs, but the author may have opted out of the 'Editor's choice' program? Many authors want their own name on the sub domain and thus opt out of the program. Your opinion please!
That is an interesting perspective... Especially since Hubpages seems to still be trying to figure out how to identify actual good hubs vs not-so-good hubs. At this point, the other hubs listed under 'related hubs' COULD be as good - if not better than - a hub that is labeled as an EC. A revision may be in order, HP.
I am a bit confused. You mean hubs shown on your profile page which are marked with the Editor's Choice banner. If somebody lands on your profile, he will see all the hubs listed there with the newest one appearing at top. He should be viewing the statistics of number of comments also against each hub. He must be reading the summary at each hub also.
So, are these not sufficient for him to judge himself whether the content is good or not? And he will be definitely knowing that each hub there is your own property. Is there any doubt in it?
Then, why do you feel that he is unable to realise who the author is or that he may not recognize other good content? If at all he wants to browse on a topic that is of his interest, he should at least click the related hubs and see whether it is of his use or not. So, I do not find any problem with the Editor's Choice banner catching his first sight than other hubs.
No I don't mean my hubs or my profile page in particular. Every hub has related hubs at the bottom and we do check out some of them.Then the EC hubs draw more attention compared to other listed hubs, which may be equally good, if not better. Thanks!
i noticed that if my hubs are labeled "EC" it gets less traffic instead of good traffic. I think most people read the titles not the EC

Heads up! As part of a traffic experiment, we changed the number of Hubs listed in the Related Hubs section to eight instead of five. We expect the experiment to last about a week, but wanted to let everyone know that...

Look at one of your articles and check out the format for the Related Hubs. On mine it now looks like a list.

At the bottom of the lens it has related hubs. Is there a way to exclude some hubs from showing there, or to encourage better (more related) ones by limiting the category or using keywords or hand picking them or...

I fail to see the need for the "related hub" section on each of my hub pages. Sometimes these hubs do not really relate to mine. Readers come to our pages to read the hubs we wrote or because they like...

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub...
