I am new to HubPages and currently have an article that is an "In the Spotlight" featured Hub, however it has the lowest views out of all my articles. I have gone back and edited a couple that are now up for review but seeing as how this one is featured, I did not see a need to edit it.
Any suggestions on how to attract more views? I would love some comments under the article to know what you guys think.

Hi Stephanie, when in doubt I look at the stellar hub recommendations, they seem to help a lot to get more traffic..
You can find them here

Also, keep writing. The more hubs the better. Especially if they are related to each other. At least that has been my experience.
Hope this helps.
I think you're misunderstanding what Featured means.
When the Featured/unFeatured system was introduced, a Featured Hub was just a normal Hub. UnFeatured Hubs were called "Idle Hubs". They changed the names because people were getting upset about it, but it doesn't change what it means!
A Featured Hub is just a normal Hub. If a Hub is unFeatured, it means HubPages doesn't think it's good enough to show to the general public. You can still get views by sharing it on social media but otherwise, it won't get traffic.
As Robie suggests, take a look at the Stellar Hub recommendations - you don't have to include ALL the suggested features, (for instance sometimes a poll doesn't make sense), just tick as many as you can. Also look at your Hub in "Mobile preview" and make sure the photos look right.
Finally, I have a Hub about how to use photos legally - you'll find it in the spotlight on the profile. Please read it and make sure you've used photos that are legal, as it can be an expensive mistake if you get sued!
Also, you choose which Hubs appear in the Spotlight section of your profile.
Thank you for all the tips Marisa. I understand that unfeatured will not be seen by the general public perusing HubPages. Of course my goal is to be searchable and Featured without having to promote via a direct link on social media. I have taken a look at the Stellar Hub recommendations and will try to incorporate what I have missed. I appreciate your feedback.

On a different account, somewhat "experimental" account, one of my Hubs is unfeatured. Generally my inclination was to unpublish it and move it or just delete it. But I kept it and put it in a Hub group....
