I have noticed the feature that one can either choose to either click to show all unfeatured hubs or to show only featured hubs. Is there any significance as to one's score as to which one one selects? All of my hubs are featured except when publishing a newly published hub going through the pending process. Which is better to click, the one where only featured hubs show up on your profile page or does it really matter, when a hub is first published for it to show up on one's profile page before HP says it is featured? I have never been clear as to what is best.
sort by best latest
Hi Marisa, well, all my hubs are featured, I am thinking of when we initially publish a new hub, is it best to allow HP to go through the pending process and not for us to put it on our profile ourselves?
Faith, there is no way to put an article on your profile yourself.
The "show unFeatured" feature is designed for Hubs which have BECOME unfeatured, it has nothing to do with Hubs that are in Pending.
Oh, so they are not really "unfeatured" during the pending, as I do place them in my highlighted part of my profile when the option is clicked for showing unfeatured before they are actually featured by HP. A lot do this, but wondering if wise?
Faith, that option on your profile is primarily intended for Hubs which are unFeatured LATER. You're going to get so few views during the "pending" period that it's simply not worth the effort to even think about it.
Oh, okay, thanks so much. That is what I thought, but one's hub sure does show up I noticed on the page and I could highlight it, but just wondering about the indexing by Google is why I asked. Thank you again.
Thanks Becky, that is what I was wondering, as all of mine are featured, but when we publish a new one, does it harm our score to have it showing on our profile page before even HP finished its pending process? Concerned about Google not indexing?
Now that you mention it, it doesn't show until it finishes pending. I am so sorry if I misled you.
Oh no, Becky, for we can make it show, under our profile settings there is a place to click to always show unfeatured hubs, and then one can highlight it on our profile page while it is still pending. So, I was wondering if that is okay or not?
Hi lyric, all my hubs are featured...six locations,i.e., FB, pinterest, twitter and such? Sorry? My score was up to 97 and then has just dropped. I wondered if someone has been voting down, where can one tell if such is going on, in traffic sources?
People voting down has a tiny, insignificant effect on your score
Hi Marisa, oh really, where are the vote downs indicated in one's account, under traffic source as a '1 or what? I do not show any, but just wondered where one could see if hubs are being voted down? Thanks for answering.
Votes up and down on Hubs are not visible to anyone. They are an old feature which was made invisible and downgraded substantially in value a long time ago.
Oh, I understand, you are referring to those hubs we can highlight on our profile page. I am talking about under account where if one may have any unfeatured, should we choose to click that feature for all to show up. I do not have any unfeatured.
Hi sheilamyers, all of my hubs are featured, but during the publishing pending process I am wondering about us featuring it ourselves is a bad idea or does it matter? Thanks for answering.
