I published an article and within a short period of time it was not featured due to quality. Strange, because I don't think that there was any time for the article to mature at all.
All new hubs go through QAP, and yours failed for whatever reason.
It has nothing to with traffic (or lack of), and everything to do with the quality of the hub. You could try looking long and hard at it, to find a way it can be improved.
We can't see your hub to say what is wrong with it.
Every new Hub goes through a Quality Assessment Process soon after it's published. The assessment is done by a team employed by HubPages.
We can't see your Hub to comment on why it might have failed. I can only suggest taking a look at it to see if it can be improved.
On a side note, I took a look at a couple of your other Hubs and notice your photographs are not credited. Do you understand photo copyright?
ALL photos on websites are copyright, unless there is a statement somewhere on the site saying they're not. If they are not, there is usually some requirement to credit the website you got it from, or (more usually) the photographer who took it.
You probably won't get penalized for stealing photos, but personally, as a creative person myself, I like to respect the rights of other creative people like photographers and artists. I know how upset I get if someone uses one of my articles without giving me credit!
Sure you can, just make it "better" by HP standards. If it's short you could start by making it longer. Look at the "Need some goals?" section at the top right when your hub is in edit mode and try to get some more check marks over there by adding photos, video, polls etc.

Lately, I've been checking the feed. I've flagged a couple of articles related to spamming one's own business. After looking more closely, I've also noticed published articles (not even articles) that most would consider extremely sub-standard. I'll be the first to admit that I'm...

This week we will begin assessing older Hubs that haven't yet gone through the Quality Assessment Process. Instead of only holding newly-published Hubs to the heightened quality bar introduced in March, ALL published Hubs will need to meet minimum quality requirements in order to remain or become...

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

http://blog.hubpages.com/2013/04/five-f … b-barrier/The new blog post that just went up today really caught my eye. The crux: "Until you have published five simultaneously-Featured Hubs, new Hubs that do not pass the Quality Assessment Process (QAP) will be unpublished rather...

Why has hubpage unpublished my already featured article? This is incomprehensible to me. It seems like there are lapses in the hubpages publication policy and system. The article has been cleared earlier at the quality is suddenly being uncleared now. Quite ridiculous and spammy of hubpages team.

The purpose of this post is NOT to moan and groan, but rather to better understand it, by sharing your insight and experiences. Obviously we now have to work using its parameters. Stayin' Alive Ha Ha Ha
