Is the Featured Hub Policy too zealous?


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.

    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?

    Now it is telling me they do not have pictures and every one of them does. They need to get this fixed.

    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.

    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.
