It is common that after publishing a hub it may be featured or considered as low quality. The reason is that the particular hub did not receive sufficient ratings. Sometimes with very little modifications the hub becomes featured. My question is who is rating these hubs, Hubpages staff or those who hop the hub through classic and new hub hopping.
Neither one. HP sets and designs the standards, then hires and trains an outside group to rate hubs according to the standards they have designed. Close watch is kept on the ratings being given, and random hubs that have been rated by HP staff are inserted into the queue to verify that the raters are giving appropriate numbers.
I really am not going to worry about it too much. I find I am moving some of my content lately as it is easier than jumping through several hoops.
