    What is going on with this site?. I just looked at my hubs and half are tagged as not featured. I have been very busy at work and now sick with Upper Respiratory Infection. Why is hub pages doing this?

      As Linda said, take a look at why they're unFeatured.

      There are two possible reasons that a Hub gets unFeatured. One is if it doesn't pass QAP - but that's not likely for your Hubs, because they only go through QAP when they're published or when you edit them. 

      So your Hubs have been unFeatured for "lack of engagement", which just means they're not getting enough readers.  Unfortunately that happens with creative writing - very few people search for poetry and fiction on Google, so if you're not being very active on HubPages or Facebook and attracting visitors that way, you're not going to get them. 

      If you edit those Hubs, they will go back through QAP and will probably score well enough to get Featured again - but they will eventually become unFeatured again if they don't get visitors.

      Try to show those hubs that are not popular with other sites. For example, Facebook and Twitter.  There are many. If hubpages allow it. You can get other readers  from other sites. And if they do not read the articles. At least you gave it a try. Good luck. Get well soon.

    Apparently there is an issue with them.  Check on left side your list of hubs to see if there are any symbols next to titles.  If it is a black ring around a white circle, that is for a quality issue, it there is a  circle with half black, half white that is engagement.  Below the list of hubs you will find symbols and what they mean.

    This is not a change in HP. Your poetry is not being read so HP is removing it from their featured list. Take a minute to read about SEO and look at this site to see some poetry that is being read.
