I edited a couple of hubs today that were no longer featured. I expected to see the pending symbol afterwards but there is nothing. Have things changed?
Next time this happens, can you send screenshots of the just-edited Hubs without icons to me? That might help.
Rest assured all Hubs go through the QAP after being edited and they are all Pending during that period (which may take up to 24 hours but may be as short as 2). The issue here seems to be that the symbol just isn't showing up.
Sorry for any confusion!
The actual pending process may take far less time than it used to for some Hubs. This means that in some cases the Hub may be pending for a very short period of time.
I looked at your Hubs and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary.
If this is related to a specific Hub, please let us know the title and/or URL.
I had the same trouble on a new hub. I just followed the guidelines. When you edit your hub look at the right hand side at the top of page. It tells you what is missing.
I added 3 capsules of text 3 photos and a video with a 400 word hub. Make sure you attribute your photos properly,add caption and give your photos a title with your keywords.
I also had it happen to an old hub
Thanks tamron, but the hubs in question already have those attributes. Have edited many hubs in the past but not had this "no symbol" problem.
I didn't realize that we should have captions and titles on photos. I only do captions. Is this an option or does it actually contribute to the overall hub rating?

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....

There is a lot of anger and/or frustration relating to the 'pending' system and most of it is down to the fact that it's not clear why there are exceptions - this is justified and there should be open-ness. (Note this...

I just spent a lot of time on this hub; I did my research, cited my sources as usual, and published it yesterday with a rating of 70. However, it no longer says it is pending and it is not featured. I was wondering if...
