I just published my 50th hub, and as all my hubs are featured, I received my 50th Featured Hub accolade. In the e-mail notifying me of this, I also read that I was in the "elite" with only 1 percent of Hubbers earning that accolade. I was rather surprised that only 1 percent ever get 50 featured hubs, although I know many people come here, post a few hubs and leave.
For those that have reached the 100 featured hubs accolade, did the e-mail give you a percent of Hubbers that have reached that level? I'd love to know what it is.
I never got an email notification that I'm aware of. Once the accolade was created, one day it was just there amongst my other accolades (100 featured hubs). There are people here with the accolade for 200 or 300 featured hubs, so 100 is good, but there are plenty of people with more.
With a few dozen Hubs to go before reaching a 2000-featured mark, I received no actual percentage figure when the new accolade began and I was happily surprised with one. The accolade is a nice motivation for many, I think.
The HP FAQ's list these benchmark numbers of Hubs for earning new "Featured" accolades:
If you stay motivated, you can achieve increasing numbers of accolades along this spectrum...and look at how many are between 2000 and 5000! Stay motivated, even through HP changes and Google changes, and you can do it.
Congrats on achieving your accolade... although personally, I am a bit confused by how factually my sharing of such an alleged 'elite' status, has apparently necessitated the 'taking away' of my 'Helpful' accolade, by the same issuing party! How very strange!
It took me some time to update my Hubs, but I managed to get all but two of them featured. I'm close to the 150 mark, so if they have a badge for that I can let you know what the email says. This milestone will be hard to keep with the new changes, so make sure you keep revisiting your hubs and keep them fresh.
You know I wonder if the one percent is more about having all of your hubs featured instead of how many are featured. Seems like my 25 one said the same thing about the one percent. I'd say it's less likely for a hubber to have all of their hubs featured than it is to have fifty featured hubs. I mean, there are a lot of hubbers here who have more than fifty hubs that are probably featured. Fifty featured is still a big accomplishment, though!Congrats on that, for sure! I'm not trying to take away from that-just wondering about the '1%'...
I didn't have my email, either. I was going to see the exact wording but I think it makes more sense that it would be for having 50 out of 50. Assuming you have no hubs that aren't featured, that would be a tougher thing to accomplish IMO. Considering all of the people I've heard complaining about their non featured hubs, I'd say having all featured isn't too common...
This is interesting because I have 122 hubs right now, all of which are featured and most of which have been featured ever since publication. I never received an email and do not think there's an accolade either. All of this is news to me, that's for sure!
TT, you have an accolade for having at least 100 featured hubs. I don't remember receiving an email, and all of mine are featured. I don't read all of my emails.. As long as they're featured, that's my concern.
I have 31 hubs, and 28 of them are poetry hubs. All my hubs are featured. I am very happy to see that. I think the efforts made to keep hubs updated and maximized for the broadest readership does help. Social media also helps to keep hubs in the view of potential new readers.
Congratulations on reaching the 50 mark! I have 31 featured hubs--Hope to reach there soon! I did get an email and accoload, when I reached 25, notifying that I am among the 3%. Wish you all the best for future!
I got the email yesterday about having 50 of my Hubs featured and of my being in the top 1% of ...er... something here. Anyway, I'm happy with that small blue badge in my activity tab, and maybe my score will rise a wee bit now!
Congrats to Patty and all the great writers here in Hub Pages who show how it is done!
That's not bad. My best hub has 20,500 views created on Jan. 2013, but my worst hub was created almost a year ago. It only has 39 views. It's a creative writing hub, and they tend not to get much Google traffic, unfortunately. You'll get the hang of this and get better at creating hubs that attract readers, although it usually takes a while for a hub to gain traction and get those readers.
That's pretty awesome! Huge accomplishment so congrats to you in a big way. Interesting note about being among only 1 percent. Wow. Well I only have 13 hubs to date but fully intend to be among that 1 percent. I can't believe crazyhorse has 1,000 hubs. My brain can't wrap itself around that one!
When approved by Google Adsense are all your featured hubs approved?When I got my congratulations email only one hub website was mentioned. Also that hub is the only one that shows rising and falling traffic indicators....
