When do featured hubs become unfeatured?

    Could the experienced people of the HP community share their experience on featured hubs becoming unfeatured. For how many days do the hubs showed zero traffic before getting removed from the feature list?

      HubPages does not disclose the exact number of visits because that might lead Hubbers to generate artificial traffic to get over the threshold.  The number is low.

        Marisa, I think he meant for hubbers to tell him how long their hubs go without traffic before it becomes unfeatured.

        @chinmayXdas, I don't have any unfeatured hubs so I can't really say I think the hubs are staying featured much longer without traffic than they were a year or so ago. Some hubs take a while to get organic traffic so HP is giving those hubs time to age. There was a forum discussion about this but I don't have time to search for it now.

        As for quality, that's a different matter.

    I think it has changed because a few months ago I had 3 hubs unfeatured due to lack of engagement. But then they became featured again and I had done nothing to them. I have a few hubs that get under 10 views per month but they are still featured.

      HubPages did say they were "tweaking" the traffic threshold so I'd say that's why.

      On October 14, 2013, HP announced that it would feature more Hubs from Hubbers with higher Hubber Scores.  That move brought 6,100 Hubs out of the un-featured status in October.

        Thanks for clarifying that Writer Fox. I had not seen that.

        Hmm, I think I missed that message too.  Good to know.

    When HP notifies you of this.

    If you have hubs with low traffic, you can try to develop more traffic from social sites like Pinterest. WryLilt has hubs about getting traffic from Pinterest.
