Learned something new today. When a hub is un-featured there are no ads on it at all.
Not featured because of engagement= no ads.
So even if we sent direct links to the hub to someone there would be no ads for them to click on.
I have a couple of hubs that do not have ads, and they are still featured hubs.
I do not have any adsense ads at mine. I do have the HubPages program appearing. Adsense does not because I have to send a postcard validating my authenticity for the account. I am not sure if that is because I was idle for about nine months or they changed their program and I didn't notice. I do know when I came back after nine months I had to reactivate at my HubPages earnings page.
All of my non-featured hubs have ads. Not sure why yours do not.

I have a hub that was moved here from Squidoo in September that I haven't touched at all. But, now it's unfeatured due to lack of engagement. I thought I had four months before stuff like that happened.

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my...
