I just had a bunch of Hubs UnFeatured due to lack of interest, including one called "Making Money During a Bear Market" that has a Hub Score of 90, with135 views over the past 7 days, and 405 views over the past 30 days. Jeeze, how much more traffic does a Hub need to avoid being UnFeatured? Scratching my head at this one.

HP made it clear that the Featured policy is not a quality issue, but rather a traffic issue. This one makes me wonder, since the traffic is good. The quality is good also. Any quality concerns are dealt with differently through the QAP process.
Revolves around good and bad content. Bad content does not generate traffic. It is a simply system. Bad content hurts the site, good content drives traffic. It is about views...which is about quality...Am I confused?
There are some very well written Hubs that for whatever reason do not receive much traffic. It could be that they are about obscure topics or not SEOed well, but it is not a reflection of their quality.
Now it is telling me they do not have pictures and every one of them does. They need to get this fixed.
Thanks! Yes. That's always a good idea. I believe I found the problem. This Hub and a number of others that were unFeatured have more than 2 Amazon links per capsule. They no longer allow that, and they want it revised to 2 or less links.
hey, rock, I tried this on 20 hubs not featured, 16 of them became featured and 4 were flagged for quality: they were old ones I was thinking of deleting anyway, so I did, and they will go somewhere else. Looks like the HP message is not helpful.
I agree, it's downright bad for business. HP doesn't need to lose more business with the ongoing traffic decline. I thought that HP had changed the Featured Hub policy, so that a warning would be provided before a Hub was actually unFeatured?
No violations or errors are indicated. I followed their guidelines for using properly labeled headings,pictures, and a video. The links are all relevant. I don't complain when a low traffic Hub gets unFeatured, but this has me concerned.
