I understand that during "boot camp", while I still haven't reach 5 featured hubs, my unfeatured hubs are not public.
If I write hubs that not get featured after I passed "boot camp", are they still not public?
What do you mean by not public?
Your hubs will be viewable by the public. You can choose to place your hubs in the featured section on your profile page. You can also set your profile to show all hubs (featured and unfeatured). If you share an unfeatured hub on Facebook it can be viewed.
If a Hub is published but not featured, it will not be made available to search engines so it will not receive traffic from Google or Bing/Yahoo.
While in Boot Camp, your Hubs that are not Featured will be unpublished, which means they can only be seen by you.
When you're out of Boot Camp, your Hubs that are not Featured will still remain published. Search engines won't be able to see them, but you can share them with friends and on social media using the Hub's URL.

It appears that there has been a recent change on my profile page. Underneath the number of published hubs, there is a number of featured hubs. I do not want this to be shown. My ratio of featured hubs is less than 50% of the number of published hubs. My understanding of why...

Let me preface this by stating I am not trying to be mean or a troll. In fact, I avoid the forums because I don't want to get involved. But with so many posts about the topics I'm about to discuss, I wanted to put in my two cents and to offer a reality check to old and new hubbers...

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my lowest scoring hubs either..it is right across the board. Is anyone else...

I have 6 out of 210 hubs. I've tried improving them but they still have a big old goose egg. I'm still not sure what it means when they aren't featured. I mean people still read them...
