Just wondering if anyone has been able to get a hub featured again AND have it get decent traffic. (I realize that "decent traffic" is a subjective term. For purposes of this discussion let's just define it as traffic levels that are better than what the hub had before it was idled.) The one hub that I tweaked to bring back into a featured state has had pretty much no traffic to it since becoming featured again (and yes, it has been indexed by google). This hub did reasonably well last summer and was still getting occasional traffic at the time it was idled. This is the first and only idled hub I've tried to revive. It has only been a few weeks - perhaps it is normal for traffic to be slow to return? Just trying to determine if there is any point at all in trying to revive idled hubs. Based on what I've read in the forums my guess is the answer is no, but I figured I ought to give it a try myself before writing off the idea entirely.

Can someone explain to me how a hub with 278 comments gets booted from featured?So I noticed today that a hub I have that was getting daily views up until losing the Featured circle and has over 270 comments suddenly has lost the H circle next to it. How does that happen?

I keep on getting hubs idled despite tweaking them, changing titles and adding better keywords. I have got used to moving them to other sites such as Wizzley, Xobba and InfoBarrel but it seems to be an ongoing problem. If I keep on moving my idled hubs eventually I will hardly have any left!

How many times do you edit an idled Hub before deleting it? Or do you keep it idled so that links to it are still good? Also, for what reasons do you either leave it idled or delete it or still try to fix it? I have one Hub which I've edited a few times, and this last time after I edited it, it...

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...

I had a hub idled about a week ago, a dumpy old hub that I didn't like anyway. I've let it sit idled since then, trying to decide what to do with it. Sorting the stats screen with the "featured" tab produces two idled hubs; one I want to keep and this one recently idled.Until...
