Hub removed from public view? After many years of viewing?

    I really do not understand the logic if a message meet the requirement for years then suddenly now it does not?  Instead of giving a general quality control a detailed list of issue would be nice?
    How is one suppose to know what your editors have found wrong with a post which was Ok for years and now not?   "Report Spammers"

      I assume you mean it's now "unfeatured"?    If the Hub has been in existence for some time and you haven't edited it recently, then the only reason it's unfeatured is lack of traffic.  It has nothing to do with quality or lack of it.

      This is a decision HubPages has taken: if a Hub is not receiving visitors from Google, then there's a chance that Google dislikes it for some reason, and therefore (to be on the safe side), HubPages makes it invisible to Google. 

      The rationale for this is that Google rates a website by the worst posts on it.  HubPages is trying to remove or hide all "poor quality" posts but can't manually vet every single Hub.  Therefore hiding low traffic Hubs is one way of dealing with the problem.

    Do you mean unfeatured? As in lack of traffic? If so, a simple edit should make it fly once again. smile
