I remember Staff telling us that in this new test that seasonal hubs and others would stay featured longer. To my surprise I signed on today to find a seasonal hub now un-featured!
Has there been another rule change?
Yes, Hubs may be featured for up to nearly one year depending their author's Hubber Score. This does not mean that they will always have Featured status, and seasonal Hubs will still require more upkeep than their non-seasonal, evergreen counterparts.
I hope that clears things up a bit! Rest assured that your high Hubber Score is making a difference.
I was wondering since it became featured again after the new post by HP for the longer time frame. Now it is un-featured again. In some seasonal material one has to wait for fresh info to become available to update them...as in sports hubs.
I still have no idea why my Easter hub was never published. I know there's a reason, I just can't figure it out. It's called Blessed is the King.
Never mind about this hub. I just deleted it, and 6 more, even though they were featured still.

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the time of year, holidays, seasons, and current events to name a few. If left alone,...

There are some hubs that will become un-featured and it's not always obvious why - so why not let each hubber have 3 to 5 hubs (perhaps those featured in the Profile) that never go un-featured....

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...

How many times have there been forums posts regarding this "experiment" of featuring and un-featuring" hubs due to traffic and trying to guess what Google wants. Experts with probably more expertise than anyone at HP have said over and over that no-follow attributes can and will hurt...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

I have encountered a very poorly written hub, the spelling and grammar was bad and the sentences were incomprehensible. The hub has less than 300 words in total including the title (268 words exactly) and has more than 15 none-English words. I had to check the hubber profile; the hubber has 12...
