Just curious about what percent of hubs are featured.
sort by best latest
Your response tend to confirm my believe that there is some thing amiss with the current HP quality process. As I understand it, there is some artificial intelligent software along with traffic and a few other parameters that determine "feature" hubs
The info of featured and UNfeatured hubs is always on our own PRIVATE stats page. We can all see and read. It does NOT need to be posted on our public profile page! Period, the end.
All you have to do is make one small edit to each non-featured Hub, and they will be featured again. They can never get organic search engine traffic again unless they are indexed. The non-featured Hubs come with the no-index tag, etc.
Once again, you took the words right out of my mouth! Maybe they're hoping to run us writers of a lesser God off?
Paula, I totally agree with your sentiment on this but may I suggest channeling your anger into some positive action? I think HubPages staff is overwhelmed and they are just trying different things to improve quality and traffic. Let's help them.
No Jack, you may NOT suggest anything to me. The action staff took would NOT and could NOT help their cause. It is only to publicly insult writers. When I want your advice, I'll ask!
EXACTLY, this new "feature" is totally demoralizing to the writers. How DARE they? HubPages should do a COMPLETE REVAMP of its staff & get professionals who KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. YES, I SAID IT!
I wrote a new hub on the Quality Assessment process of HubPages.
I offer some suggestions to fixing the current process.
...of course, my traffic stats are goin' down the poop chute like they've got a rocket attached to them, but hey... featured. (shrugs)
+1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000-one can say that this "feature" DEMORALIZES the community, making hubbers STOP writing & causing others to eventually LEAVE HUBPAGES!
I'm conflicted on this. I do think some stats should be kept private. If a hub is unfeatured due to lack of updates, that seems unfair. It comes down to how one determines the quality of a hub.
