Within one week I have published quite a view articles which I wrote over the passed years and now I have 23 featured hubs. I am not really clear what it could mean for my profile but in some way it feels just good.
How about you guys?
Great to hear mate!
I've started hubbing last month and I have to say it is a great experience. Currently all of my hubs are featured (thank god) and I hope it continues that way.
A few tips (from what I learned the last few months) I would give you are:
1) Make sure your articles are SEO (Post-panda)
2) Make sure you drive initial traffic to them via social networks (chime.in, twitter, pinterest, google+ (communities) and facebook)
3) Make sure you connect your hubpages acc with google plus ( that way you will have your g+ pic in the search resluts ... )
4) Be active in the forums, Q&A section and of course post hubs regularly
5) Be patient ... I am just seeing the results and starting to get SE traffic from hubs I've posted weeks ago
Hope you have a great experience here in hubpages,
and the imbecile says "Does featured mean they have those little H's beside them or something else?"
I have over 500 with quite a few as of yet unpublished. I follow the technique of publishing one hub per day as this keeps my web presence fresh in search engines eyes.............
So no one really answered my question... are featured hubs the one with H's to the side of them?
All mine have H's next to them... I thought that's what happened a few days after you hit publish.
In an ideal world that is what happens! Unfortunately, the dreaded day may come when you notice that an "H" has disappeared - your hub has slipped into idle (sorry, "unfeatured") mode and Google will no longer index it. There are currently about 3,452 forum threads about what you do then. If you work out the correct answer for what to do, please let the rest of us know
Oh... ok... yes, Ive had that happen before when the H disappears and I changed the pic. or a few words. I must have read that somewhere. Im getting so little traffic right now compared to when I first started and what I don't understand is why the H's aren't disappearing at this low # compared to when I had a higher # of readers. Maybe I shouldn't bring attention to that fact. lol
All 36, for now. I make edits when they are idled. It usually works. I can tell when one's about to bite the dust, usually due to low traffic.

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

Let me preface this by stating I am not trying to be mean or a troll. In fact, I avoid the forums because I don't want to get involved. But with so many posts about the topics I'm about to discuss, I wanted to put in my two cents and to offer a reality check to old and new hubbers...

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?
by Nathan Bernardo 3 years ago
On a different account, somewhat "experimental" account, one of my Hubs is unfeatured. Generally my inclination was to unpublish it and move it or just delete it. But I kept it and put it in a Hub group. Meaning, if the Hubs before and after it get traffic, possibly the unfeatured one...
by Adrienne Janet Farricelli 5 years ago
I saw a dramatic traffic drop today and went to notice that over 100 of my hubs are not featured. While I can understand some of my older ones published over 4 years ago were not that great, some of them were published just months ago and are engaging, have beautiful pictures and very few links....
