A hub not featured for quality.

    I just wrote a hub on blogging.  I did feature Janine Huldie as one who did my blog. Is this considered over promotional? I just submitted this morning and the little  circle appeared.  Any ideas here?

      I would suggest posting a link in the hub makeover area.

      Try adding a poll and maybe some Amazon products about blogging.  If Janine has a You Tube video, you could include that.  How many checks did you have in the checklist?  That's a good guideline for having hubs featured.  I tweaked over 50 of my hubs using these methods and now all but two are featured.

        Thanks so much...I have a feeling it was too promotional, even if not myself...I featured her because I was so pleased with her work.

        What do you mean by "How many checks did you have in the checklist?"? What checklist are you referring to?

          As you add content to your Hub you will see A list of Goals on the right hand side.  This is where you add capsules, such as videos, amazon, e-bay, maps etc.,  As you add this content, the boxes will be ticked - telling you how you are doing with the Hub.  This is invaluable and a great resource when putting your Hub together.

          When you are creating your hubs, there is a box on the top right part of the screen.  It tracks word count and checks appear when you meet certain criteria.  If you go into edit mode, you'll see it.  You get more checks and points as you add capsules to your hubs.  If they all get checked off, your piece should be featured.  Getting 8 or above should reap the same results.

      Without seeing the content of your hub it is hard to say if it is over promotional or not. Maybe it's too short, or you overstuffed it with keywords. If you've featured Amazon products maybe you've included too many.

      I wonder if you run Hub Violations if it will tell you anything about this unfeatured hub...

      It's worth a shot I think.

    It is a new hub. The circle with arrows simply means that is has not been reviewed yet.

      By the circle I gather she means an empty circle which means an unfeatured hub due to quality. She didn't say anything about arrows.

    Technically there are several types of circles.

    The only way to get a good opinion of the problem would be to link people to the specific hub. Otherwise we are just guessing.
