Earlier today, all my hubs contained the "H" icon in the featured column, which means featured. Now two of my hubs have no icon at all, that space is completely empty. Does anyone know why?
When it is blank, as I understand, it is the same as what it was as Idle or Zzzz. It means they are no longer featured and no longer indexed until you edit them, then they will go pending and might go back to Featured status; you would have to add text or change text, or add links or video or images, etc. to get them featured again.
Thank you everyone! I edited it a bit, and now its idle. So I will see what happens. I appreciate the help.
The same thing happened to me. I wrote a hub on Thursday, it got about 30 views. It had the featured H on it. I just checked my hubs and the H was gone. It also has a blue arrow. It was only two days old why are they worried about traffic?
I had read that Hubs go idle, but I wasn't sure how it worked exactly. Thanks for the answer everyone.
The idled hubs used to show a 'Zzz' logo next to them in 'My Account' now they show nothing. This thread proves what others have predicted, and this is that people will naturally be confused if there is not a suitable replacement logo implemented such as a question mark for idled hubs.
I'm new here, but I thought I have read where hubs have to properly "age" before they start to become profitable. Shouldn't there be a sort of grace period for new hubs? Two days is barely even enough time to let google know my hub was there
We use to have ZZZZ which meant hub was idle. They changed that to either the H for featured hubs or a blank space which means that hub is sitting idle. The blank space is replacing the ZZZZ's.
I had happened the same problem. I made some changes and gave for re-publishing. congratulations for All replays.
Traffic should not affect it so soon. Why don't you post it as a bug?
The feature space is empty and I believe my article is one of a kind. Why should I edit as I feel my work is worthy an appreciation despite the policies here on Hub!
Having a Hub go idle doesn't have anything to do with being "one of a kind," it means HubPages thinks it's not high-quality enough for them to promote to the search engines. It's still published and you can promote it yourself.
If an article goes against the policies of Hubpages (TOS) then it will likely be un-published or at the very least un-featured.

How Many of Your Hubs have been put into idle status?A few months ago one of my hubs went into idle and since that time several of my short hubs have transferred to idle.

Two featured hubs I edited today are showing as 'featured' on my accounts stats page but when I downloaded the csv of my stats a moment ago, these two hubs had 'no' next to them in the featured column.Why is this?

Is it possible that, even when a Hub is in Idle Status, it could still be found on the Web and get views and thereby come out of Idle Status? I ask this because I was searching the Web on a subject and accidentally found a Hub and when I checked the Hubber's profile, this particular Hub was not...

One of my hubs has no icon in the featured column. I fail to understand why?Can anyone enlighten me about this?

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

If a hub's views decrease, it may go idle. Instead of working on new hubs, I have been taking an article at a time, and changing title, narrowing the topic, adding new information, working on the keywords, finding new examples, changing photos, adding photos. I am amazed at my older hubs that have...
