Want Your Hub to Be Featured?
To give your Hubs the best possible odds of being Featured, make sure that it meets the substance, organization, and grammar and mechanics criteria used to describe Hubs rated at an eight or above.
Note: A collective score of eight on all levels is NOT the minimum requirement for a Hub to be Featured; the minimum quality score a Hub needs to become Featured is actually much lower (make sure you're at least clearly above a six), but given our margin of error with human ratings, we want to make it clear that if you meet the criteria of an eight, you can be very confident that your Hub will be Featured.
Criteria For A Featured Hub
What Are the Characteristics of an Eight (Plus) Hub?
*A clear and specific title backed up by a fully-developed message
*Generous use of concrete facts and figures to back up arguments or assertions
*Helpful and abundant supportive media( images, videos)
*Clear, reader-friendly structure (descriptive subheadings)
* Visually attractive content (both regarding media and layout)
*No unrelated links or promotional
*No spelling or grammatical mistakes
This explains the scores and the rating categories

For some unspecified reason, HubPages has chosen not to feature what I believe to be one of the bestHubs I have written. After learning that HubPages was not going to feature it without editing, I added a poll to see if that would do the trick. No success. It really would be nice if the...

You may have noticed some Hubs have become featured. We are continuing to tweak this system so that it has less impact on the best Hubbers. Our hope is to have additional Hubs become featured as we continually refine the system.
