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

Published a hub on Oklahoma (please don’t get started on how it might be too generic – I had fun doing it). It became the template for my following hubs on Arizona and New Mexico. The Oklahoma one published just fine. The Arizona and New Mexico ones are now Not Featured due to...

Ok, here it is. Hubpages edited some of my hubs to "make them better" so they can be featured and moved to vertical sites. If I undo their "corrections" I risk having that hub removed from the featured status. When I have reviewed their "corrections"...

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

I wrote a recipe hub and wanted to add some recommended cookbooks at the end. I created an Amazon capsule and selected the cookbooks. When I previewed the capsule, it said "No Amazon products found." I deleted it and tried again, this time letting it use keywords to select products...
