I have a hub that is showing as featured on my profile and has been indexed by Google. But when I go to explore hubs it isn't showing up on the list of Featured Hubs. Is this something I should be concerned about or am I worrying unnecessarily? I've looked in All Topics and in the topic the hub is in.
"Featured" on your Hubs and "Featured Hubs" are two different things.
When one of your Hubs is "Featured", it means that it is available to search engines like Google. If it's not featured, it's semi-private - only HubPages members, and anyone you send the link to, can see it.
Sorry for the confusion! Perhaps we should change that wording on Topic Pages. Thanks for bringing this up!
AlliOop, Featured Hubs should indeed appear on topics pages, though not necessarily on the first page. Did you check every page of the topic in question? They can be somewhat hard to find because they're not sorted directly by publish date.
It may be much harder to find them on the "All Topics" pages because there are so many pages to go through, but they should be in there as well someplace.
