A few of my Hubs don't have the Hub Featured logo. No violations or anything of that kind, is that something I should be concerned about?
It means those hubs will not be found by search engines and so not get search engine traffic. I would suggest revising and updating them.
We feature Hubs ad part of our continuing quality initiative. You can find a bit more about it in this blog post:

I found the hub Pages Log on some of my hubs in searches and it is great. Featured hubs will have the logo on them. To be featured, the hub should have proper tags or keywords, proper searchable titles and a short summary for search engines, as the summary is what people read on the results page.
Try tweeting some of your hubs and perhaps bookmarking them or sharing them in Facebook. Bring your hubs to a wider audience. Your hubs will be more visible to readers outside Hub pages.
Once they are unfeatured they will stay that way no matter what you do, unless you edit and update them.

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?
