I'm starting to feel like a yo yo with my hubs featured one day then unfeatured the next. Tomorrow they will be featured again. WTH Is anyone else experiencing this irregularity? I wish someone would make up their minds.
I've got one that does that constantly, and few more that do it occasionally. All are very low SE traffic. They are apparently right on the line where a varying hubber score coupled with daily traffic changes will push them in and out of being featured - something that I suppose is inevitable.
Most I will tweak and try to stop that, but if I can't I just delete them. A hub that can't garner traffic is useless to me, with a few exceptions.
Hi Wilderness. I agree, but some of them are getting regular traffic. It's just wierd they are unpublished then published the next day. I started tweeking last night and hopefully that will fix the issue. The ones that are not getting traffic I'm deleting and completely redoing.
Oh hey, guess what, I got my own by line on a publishers website. I've been working with Fiverr and can hardly keep up with the work. This guy is one of my repeat customers and offered me the gig and I get paid for it. Things are looking up for me I knew they would eventually but it sure has been a long haul! Maybe I'll write my book afterall.
I've learned to look not at traffic, but SE traffic. Apparently that's what HP has based their algorithm on, and I do find that the hubs being unfeatured all have very low SE traffic. As in under 1 per day average.
That's really great news! A high five from both of us here, and hoping it continues. You're right - given time and effort, not giving up, and it was only a matter of time. So pleased to hear about it.
I have noticed a Hub I recently published was unfeatured but after a few days became featured.
Maybe there is a setting on Hubs that are unfeatured, that changes them to featured when they have good traffic. #Guessing.

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my...

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...

I'm not asking about why hubs get featured or un-featured. I kind of know that.The issue is: I just did a category search in my hubs, and found that, out of 292 published hubs, 149 are unfeatured due to low...

I've been writing here for quite a few years, I go back to the ancient era before the 'featured' 'not featured' declension.I have found that 'fixing' a Hub which is not featured is a total waste of time, as in a day or...

It appears that there has been a recent change on my profile page. Underneath the number of published hubs, there is a number of featured hubs. I do not want this to be shown. My ratio of featured hubs...

I haven't been here much lately because I have a 'proper' job now but just posted a new hub. I was checking my account and see more hubs no longer featured than ever before. My traffic is way down too. What has happened...
