What will cause a hub to not have the "featured" icon on a member's HP account screen?


All but three of my published hubs show the "featured" icon on my HP account. Since two of them are seasonal, I can understand their not being featured (I suppose), but the other one is short fiction. Since my other short fiction is featured--even that without a lot of traffic lately--I can't deduce why this particular hub was singled out for not being featured. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Barbara Kay....My fiction normally gets less traffic than my articles, but this one doesn't seem to be any worse for traffic than a few others. I'll make a few changes, though, and see what happens. I'm considering my own website, anyway. Jay

    Thanks for your response, nanderson500. I got the two hubs to which I referred reinstated as "featured" by following suggestions for tweaking. This morning I have several more "un-featured." Back to the drawing, er, writing board!

    Thanks, Bob...I've made some changes to the non-featured hubs and hope they will soon have the "Featured" icon again. I could sure use an increase in traffic, as mine took a nose-dive in September. Jaye

    X-Con....I'll have to go back and read that short story all the way through to see if it has any word, phrase or topic that might keep it from being featured. (I can't remember, it's been so long since I wrote and published it.) Thanks for the tip.
