Well I finally got a chance to do a light calculation on Featured versus "lesser" hubs. As for me the Feature designation does not increase my traffic or scores. Do others have different impressions?
sort by best latest
Awesome answer I hope, this also helps craftytothecore.
Now does rewriting a non-featured hup and bringing it good with current process and layout and getting it featured then remove the NOINDEX tag.?
Yes, getting it re-featured removes the NOINDEX tag, but it is unclear whether long term damage is done with Google in their rankings. It's best to get it featured ASAP and avoid NOINDEX problems. It's a pain! I don't like it.
