I have written a hub of 504 words and it is featured. Next I have written a hub of 586 words and that is not featured.
Why, what can I do to make it featured?
Does anybody have an idea.
Are they not featured because of quality or because of engagement? Your statistics page will show you.
Most hubs tend to be longer than 500 words - I would recommend trying to follow the elements of a stellar hub. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Elem … tellar-Hub
Be sure to review your hub several times for grammar and spelling errors. I use the grammar checker on Word to fix the easy things, and then re-read my hub for the things the checker can't find.
HubPages suggests that your blog be over 1,000 words. If you make it like 1,200 words or more with three pictures, videos, and all that good stuff, you should be featured all the time.
I don't think those names are the problem. i publish a ton of hubs with obscure words.
Is it not passing the initial quality rating?
If they are new hubs, they just did not pass quality assessment.
OK, I have edited it a bit in in "my account" there was an "H" for being featured. But it wasn't on my profile pages. So can I delete it and publish it again? I hope if I do that it will appear on my profile page.
You don't have to delete it and republish it. First, try refreshing your profile page.
Next, try logging out of your account and logging back in.
Then wait 24 hours and try both of those methods again.

I'm deleting it so I can re-publish it again.
Please don't. Hubstaff are on the job and deleting it will only stop them from working out what the issue is.
I asked so we could look at it and assist you, but since it has been deleted we will be unable to give you much info.
For future inquiries, if you have a specific question about a Hub, the best practice is to contact us at team at hubpages dot com and include the exact URL and/or title of the specific Hub.
It has happened to many of us so keep trying. Read it over and make improvements where you can then publish again.
Check the spelling on your hubs and format them so that there aren't huge chunks of text. I took a look at one of your hubs and saw some spelling mistakes and a huge wall of text. If you break it up into smaller paragraphs and fix grammatical + spelling errors, you shouldn't have a problem. Overall, your writing is good, just fix those small things.
The hub was featured, so that was not the problem.
Not showing on the profile was probably a server lag and would have corrected within 24 hours.
So, basically, I don't think you have a problem?

I just spent a lot of time on this hub; I did my research, cited my sources as usual, and published it yesterday with a rating of 70. However, it no longer says it is pending and it is not featured. I was wondering if someone can look it over, and possibly tell me why?...

Do hubs with spelling errors make you think less of a hub?Is anyone else distracted by a hub that has decent content but several spelling errors or grammatical errors?

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

Regarding niche sites, at the moment, all we really know from looking on the My Account page is if a hub is featured or not. It would be useful to know *where* the hub is featured (Soapboxie, Owlcation, HubPages, PairedLife etc.). At the moment there is no way of knowing without...
