    I'm new here and wondering how many views it takes to get my hub listed under hot on the first page? My latest hub has more views than any of my previous ones and yet it is not under hot, at least on the main page. When I click for more I can find it there. Anyone know how this works? Thanks

      One of my hubs gets over 500 views a day. I don't even know if it shows up under hot because I never look.

    Hey Kelley,

    You're up against 200,000 writers for the top 10 hottest hubs. I have two spots on the top 10. wink

    It's not easy to get there. smile

      I guess I just misunderstood. Most of the ones I've published under family and parenting were listed under latest and then hot for a few days and some over a week. There must just be much more competition in this category. Thanks for sharing and congrats on your achievement!

          Funny I just checked and mine is now on the hot list. Can I ask you whether I will get penalized if I add my RSS on one of my hubs that directs to my blog? Is this something I should not do? Just wondering...

            As long as the RSS link is relevant to your content and you only have ONE link in the RSS feed directing towards. You also cannot have any other links in that hub directed at that blog. The single RSS Feed link is considered 2 links!

    I'm pretty sure there's an algorithm for the hottest hubs that isn't as straightforward as one would think.  Sometimes I've got hubs in the first few pages of hottest that are surprising to me (since I have other new(ish) hubs that are getting way more views and AREN'T appearing there).  No doubt, it's a mix of hub age, hits from OUTSIDE of Hubpages, number of comments and a number of other factors.  This I DO know, their appearance  on the front page(s) isn't solely a result of sheer number of views.
