Hi, just wondering how long QAP will take? I have waited more than 24hrs for my newest hub to publish...it shows it being featured in my account but it is not showing on my profile...
Your new Hub is featured, but Google hasn't indexed it yet. I suggest you submit the URL through your account on Google Webmaster Tools. It is taking longer for Hubs to appear on profiles, etc., and I don't know why that is.
On your new Hub, I suggest you change the topic to:
• Games, Toys, and Hobbies »
• Collecting and Collections »
• Rock, Mineral, and Gem Collecting
You will have a higher Google Page Rank for your new Hub if you do this because the topic category 'Crafts & Handiwork' has 6,189 listings and your new Hub will not be featured well there. (The sub-topics 'Stonework' and 'Lapidary' don't have enough Hubs to have a topic webpage yet.)
QAP usually takes 24 hours, but can take more time in some instances.
If you have any further questions about your Hub, please email the title and/or URL for the specific Hub about which you are asking to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can look into it further.

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.

Lately I have noticed how most of my articles that have been there for a long time, are being marked as not featured. And even after trying to "fix" them they are placed in the same stage over and over again....
