On a quick stroll through the topics I can't find any hub older than Sept 2012. I guess this means that HP has already implemented a Policy of only showing hubs that are "Featured" and have a QAP score, that is used to assign merit. I guess that means that authors with older hubs, should edit them, so they go through QAP and so have a chance of being listed in the topics. Otherwise there may be a long wait for hubs in the backlog to be processed and have a chance to shine.
It won't bother me any - the only hubs I've ever had that got any traffic from HP are a few that made HOTD (and traffic soon died) and the handful written primarily for hubbers.
A searcher isn't going to scan through the topics anyway, so I don't imagine it will affect my traffic at all.
Not very. While there is some link juice from them it isn't much. Nearly all my hubs have dozens if not hundreds of links from HP - another one isn't going to make any difference.
Yep I could be wrong.
What was the "Last Updated" address at the end of the article?
One of my hubs is there and it was last updated in August 2012.
On topic I specialize in is showing 18 of my hubs, assuming I'm understanding what "topic" means - I clicked the category at the top of the hub.
I guarantee that most of them haven't been touched since well before last September.
Looks like I was mistaken - I did not look on page 4 & 5 - some older ones were there.
My apologies for raising undue concern.
Don't feel bad - I didn't realize there was even a page 2!
No worries! To be fair, we do account for newness when ranking Hubs on Topic Pages to keep the choices constantly revolving and to give everyone a shot at getting some traffic through them (if we didn't do this, we'd be stuck looking at the same high quality Hubs on Topic Pages for aaaaaages).

Writing has always been my way of talking when no-one is listening so finding HubPages is as good as picking up the phone and knowing there is someone on the other end of the line.My problem is that I have so much to write about I don't know what my niche is or if I even want one. What do you think...

Assuming you care to be visible to big G.1. Start with a niche topic that can get a lot of search results. Use the adword keyword tool to find it. If you don't know what that is google "adword keyword tool". 2. Make a hub based on that topic that is somewhat broad concerning that...

I was thinking that the hub hopping tool is great and all, but it doesn't really address hubs that are older and have slipped through the cracks for months and even years.I was thinking that we could have an adopt a topic program.For example, I've been writing a lot of hubs on Nepal and have looked...

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...
