    I think it is high time that Hub Pages have a panel or team of experts to briefly explain or detail why a hub is denied to be featured.

      It's simple- it's either not drawing traffic or it's badly written.

        It's actually not that simple.

        I have a hub that was deigned unfeatured due to lack of quality. It wasn't one of my best, I have to admit, but Google loved it!

        It spoke about a certain Amazon item in glowing terms. Most of what I wrote came off the top of my head.

        Half the web have since copied my description and claimed it as their own.

        I've issued countless take-down notices.

        All to no avail because Google started ignoring it (after all those folk copied it), then Hubpages started ignoring it. (no longer at the top of its topic placement).

        It is still the best and most original article on the web for the article it describes, if I say so myself.

        Unfortunately, it is unfeatured due to lack of quality so the world can never see it again.

          Right there with you Izzy! I have an article like that, although mine is related to bridal and is still featured. Used to get good Amazon sales, till it was scraped by so many sites I lost count. Now it gets hardly any traffic. Sigh.

            When your traffic levels fall really low, it will become unfeatured eventually.

            I know we own the content, and are therefore responsible for it, but at times like this it would be nice to have a higher power watching your back.

            Even without it (as we are) it would be nice if Google would follow their own guidelines. Allow one event in the SERPS. Drop the rest. Know which was published first, or be willing to listen to arguments.

              Tell me about it! I wish there was a way to mass file DMCAs.

    Here's the explanation of the QAP, http://hubpages.com/faq/#quality-assessment

    If that doesn't work for you, you'll have to contact admin directly.  They won't talk specifics about your hubs or account in the forums.

    Usually, if a hub is not featured for quality, it has a number of issues with it.  You can use this writing scale to see the criteria that is being used to determine the quality.
