    I don't understand
    this is the third time to modify my article and also became unfeatured without explaining a particular reason. How can I know to improve it.

    I read QAP many times and (How to Improve the Quality of a Hub) guidelines and I commit with it.

    How can I make my hub featured?

    Please, help me

      Check your grammar. From reading your other hubs, I see that you are struggling there.

      Look at the symbol in the right hand column.  Is it a circle that's half white, half black?  If it is, then your Hub is unFeatured for "lack of engagement", which just means it's not getting enough traffic.  It's an automatic thing.   

      If the symbol is a circle that's all white, then your Hub has failed the Quality Approval Process.  This is an English language site and it expects a high standard of English..   It's very challenging for a non-English speaker to reach that standard because there are so many subtleties in the English language.  I suspect that may be part of the reason.

    Hubs fall into unfeatured mode after several months if they don't get traffic.

    At that point, the question becomes: why isn't this hub attractive to visitors?

    Are there other pages out there on the web that do a better job than mine in satisfying readers or visitors about this subject? How can I improve this so real people visit this page? Or, if it's not the kind of thing people search for, how can I build my presence on the social networks where I'm active so that people become fascinated enough to follow me and trust me enough to click on links I share (instead of avoiding me as yet another spammer)?

    There's some tools on HP that can help with answering those questions.
    -- When you edit a hub in the workshop, look at the checklist at upper right. Not every hub needs to do all those things to succeed, but if a hub isn't staying afloat on its own, try following more of those suggestions.
    -- on your hubs that ARE succeeding, click "stats" at the top, then "search." You should see some of the things that are bringing visitors to the kinds of things they write. Make a list! Look for patterns! Be a psychologist! Put yourself in your readers' shoes and notice the kinds of things YOU write that OTHER people seem to find worth reading! Don't write the same article again -- no point in that -- but see if you can draw some general lessons that will teach you what kinds of things you do that are working, and then do more of them.

    You still won't have 100% featured, but by doing the above, I have 101 featured out of 104 hubs (and understand why the three duds aren't compelling enough to draw traffic, or on a topic that everybody and their dog's tick has written about, so there's no reason for readers to come to my article as opposed to all the others out there on the  same subject.)

    Does a person read them or is it all computer matrix? It wood be good to have a hub budy to proof read them…

      If they are unfeatured for "engagement" it's automatic. Real people read them when checking for quality in most cases.
