What is the new non-featured-Engagement status of the hubs?
I am assuming this refers to low viewing figures (or possibly a high bounce rate) as opposed to a problem with the quality of content.
Engagement refers to views, comments, and search traffic according to the HubPages FAQ, item 17. It appears you can get a blue H and have your hub not featured if it is not getting enough engagement.
Yep! What mistyhorizon2003 and drpennypincher say is correct!
This Hub is not Featured because it does not receive sufficient engagement. Try updating the Hub with recent information and descriptive, search-friendly sub headings.
Totally agree with the facts @drpennypincher
I would like to know if i have visitors and comments on my hub then why still hub is in non featured zone while other hub with low traffic are featured.
There's traffic and then there is traffic. Being featured depends on getting organic, search engine traffic - not on getting traffic from links somewhere.
I would guess that if you are getting comments it is probably from friends, family and hubbers. For the most part I find that is who comments, and those visitors are not from a search engine such as google.
Appreciate prompt action. So you want to say is if i got visitors from search engine then i would get my hub featured. Well if my hub is not featured then how it get indexed by search engine and if it is not indexed then how i get visitors from search engine ?
Sorry to say but i didn't get your answer exactly what you want to say .
As I know, engagement is how well the the hub connects,and relates with the readers,
Thanks guys for all the inputs. Hubpages seems to bring in more and more of changes every day. Sometimes it just confuses me.

Is it possible that, even when a Hub is in Idle Status, it could still be found on the Web and get views and thereby come out of Idle Status? I ask this because I was searching the Web on a subject and accidentally...
