Hey guys I am a writer new to this whole thing! I have 11 published hubs and only 1 is featured. What does it mean if the hub is published but not featured? (I have tried editing them a few times).
Are your hubs mostly creative writing? It seems that HubPages is downgrading articles that aren't 'searchable'. HP needs search engine traffic to thrive, so poetry and prose is kind of ignored.
I had a look at your one featured hub, and while it is very beautifully written, it isn't what people are searching for. It's the sort of writing that would do better on a personal blog.
Took a peek and here are my observations:
Your featured hub is too short, lacks capsules, lacks proper capitalization and title,.lacks photos and lacks a video. It also is written as a blog, but could easily be turned into an article.
You really need to take some time reading about formatting in the learning center and also looking at articles from others who have been here for awhile. I think you could do well, but for the moment, you are wasting your time.
Hi Tarzo. Based on your one featured hub, which is well written. You need to add images (your own photos or other legal to use photos), videos, polls etc.
I just had 4 hubs published over night and featured! Thanks for your advice guys

I added some links to my other related hubs into this hub today which was featured before. Now I can't see most of the content when I access the hub and of course the Featured icon is gone....

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously....

I published a hub on 20th Oct, 2015. It got the featured hub status immediately. It was fine till last week. But today, it's no more a featured hub due to quality issue. My question is - why after 4 months?
