Hello, so I've been wondering if not getting your hubs featured may prevent them from showing in search engines? Because obviously that's what I'm mostly going to be depending on knowing that most of the times I focus on writing content that people might always search for, I've read a hub once which stated that getting a high hubber score or a featured hub doesn't mean you won't be getting good traffic and good earnings respectively but I want an exact answer to this please advise and thanks in advance.
Unfeatured means it is not indexed in search engines, so if you depend on Google/Yahoo/Bing for traffic, it's important to make sure all your hubs are featured. In your account, you can see which ones are featured, they'll have a black circle with an H. An open circle or a half-filled in circle means unfeatured.
Proofreading and adding more text and images will help get your hubs featured.
Yes, that is the whole point of UnFeaturing - it effectively makes the Hub invisible, except to people you share the link with.
The logic is to hide poor-quality or non-performing Hubs from Google. Google says that it judges a site by its poorest posts, so it's important that Google can't 'see' anything that could possibly fall into that category.
Hubber Scores and HubScores are a completely different thing and have no effect on your ability to get traffic.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?
