You can edit and make certain changes in your non featured hubs to get back the Featured status.
A change in the title, an addition of a video or a picture, changing the layout, adding some more content etc. can help. In other words follow the 'Need some goals' and it will most certainly be Featured.
If the hub is not Featured, it will not show on your profile page or elsewhere on HP. Therefore, no one, but you can see it. So, obviously you can not have views.
There is an option however on your profile page, by which even Non featured hubs can be visible, at least on your profile page. You can make changes by Editing it.
Hope that helped!
