I edited a Hub but it's not featured. It has a higher score than some of my other hubs that are featured.
Not sure why that is?
Take a look at WHY it's not featured and tell us. Then we can help.
I recently have had this same dilemma. The score was higher than any initial score I have had in the past and was not featured. Is it a conundrum of humor or is it a conundrum of confusing and difficult? So, in essence my empathy is extended. Can you post a link to it for the experienced greater than I to peek at?
First. IMHO, is to be familiar and understand the QAP process for ‘New Hubs’ published.
A Human Outsource MTurk readers rate a Hub based on Substance, Organization, and Grammar. That is subjective based upon objective guidelines. Those guidelines follow below.
A bot crawl technique based on the wizardry of programming uses an algorithm to assess Hubs. It is a concrete measurement solely objective. That algorithm is very thorough, can be tweaked by programming, and is very sly metaphorically. Notation: That process occurs through programed intervals and may be constant.
So, what to do with a conundrum now observed may be a trend with New Hubs.
1 Look at the score
2 Compare it with HubPages Rating Scale
3 Notate that a common cause for not featured for New Hubs is spammy elements. Seen at the Rating Scale Guide is that is no longer listed for a rating at 8, which is the new aim for Niche sites as announced by HP Blog.
4 Review how HP 'Defines Spammy Elements'
5 Review what a Stellar Hub is.
6 Give your attention to the recommended word count at 1,150 while observing this quote, “Filler text, fluff, personal conjecture, and pointless rambling does not cut the mustard here."
7 Remember and consider that the MTurk process knows those objectives above when subjectively assessing a Hub.
8 Remember to have Fun, Fun, Fun . . . as best as can be . . .
In golf, is it better to get a hole in one or one in the hole?
Haha! A semantics issue. No matter how you say it when you are at the tee on a par three short golf hole and you try to get your golf ball in the hole in three shots to make a par, if perchance you hit the ball and it goes into a 4.5" diameter hole, you are thrilled beyond expectations as most golfers don't do this in a life time.
Thanks for your comment cookbooklady!

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the...

From what I have seen featuring /not featuring a hub does little for traffic and it appears to be a catalyst that is sending authors to other sites (Bubblews comes to mind). My understanding is that once a hub becomes...

All of a sudden I find 4 of my hubs unfeatured, for lack of quality, for the first time. These hubs are from 2 to 3 years old and more and get a good amount of traffic from a few hundred views to several hundred views a...

Right now, while a Hub is pending, it doesn't show ads, it has a "no follow" tag etc. However our followers get notified and they may share the Hub during that time. It would be nice if that...
