Both the author and HP can make money off unfeatured hubs because they are still published. Unfeatured means that HP tells search engines not to index the hubs, but you can still display them on your profile page, link to them, share them FB/Twitter, pin them on Pinterest, etc.
No, I don't think so because unfeatured hubs are actually not accepted by HP and they won't get ads though they are still published, and search engines can't find them, then how you can make money, so try to publish maximum featured hubs.
Why do you think HubPro made it their policy to edit selected accounts unless authors decline?
As long as hubs have been shared on Google plus,twitter, etc the link is still live, so anyone who sees or has link can still view the hub.

I don't suppose I'm the only person wondering what happens if the machinations - automated or otherwise - lead to HubPages having a much REDUCED income stream from Amazon.Make no mistake - as Google Adsense income dives...
