    Within one week I have published quite a view articles which I wrote over the passed years and now I have 23 featured hubs. I am not really clear what it could mean for my profile but in some way it feels just good.
    How about you guys?

      I've written 60+ hubs and only two or three of them are NOT featured:)

    Great to hear mate!

    I've started hubbing last month and I have to say it is a great experience. Currently all of my hubs are featured (thank god) and I hope it continues that way.

    A few tips (from what I learned the last few months) I would give you are:

    1) Make sure your articles are SEO (Post-panda)
    2) Make sure you drive initial traffic to them via social networks (chime.in, twitter, pinterest, google+ (communities) and facebook)
    3) Make sure you connect your hubpages acc with google plus ( that way you will have your g+ pic in the search resluts ... )
    4) Be active in the forums, Q&A section and of course post hubs regularly
    5) Be patient ... I am just seeing the results and starting to get SE traffic from hubs I've posted weeks ago

    Hope you have a great experience here in hubpages,

    and the imbecile says "Does featured mean they have those little H's beside them or something else?"

    I have over 500 with quite a few as of yet unpublished. I follow the technique of publishing one hub per day as this keeps my web presence fresh in search engines eyes.............cool

    So no one really answered my question... are featured hubs the one with H's to the side of them?

        All mine have H's next to them... I thought that's what happened a few days after you hit publish.

          In an ideal world that is what happens!  Unfortunately, the dreaded day may come when you notice that an "H" has disappeared - your hub has slipped into idle (sorry, "unfeatured") mode and Google will no longer index it.  There are currently about 3,452 forum threads about what you do then.  If you work out the correct answer for what to do, please let the rest of us know big_smile

            Oh... ok... yes, Ive had that happen before when the H disappears and I changed the pic. or a few words. I must have read that somewhere. Im getting so little traffic right now compared to when I first started and what I don't understand is why the H's aren't disappearing at this low # compared to when I had a higher # of readers. Maybe I shouldn't bring attention to that fact. lol

              I think the traffic threshold is perplexing lots of people.  If your hubs aren't getting idled for low traffic, I promise I won't tell big_smile

    All of them, I don't leave hubs idle.

    All 36, for now. I make edits when they are idled. It usually works. I can tell when one's about to bite the dust, usually due to low traffic.
