    What does No featured... traffic mean. Does it mean no one can get in to look at you hubs?

    Not really. Not featured quality could be you might have spammy elements in your hub like your ad capsules, it could be your writing too or broken links. I'm still getting views for my one hub with NFQ, that I'll be revising again this week--but it won't be featured for Google search engines though.

    Actually "not featured: traffic" (NFT, not NFQ) says nothing directly about your content.  It means you did not get enough traffic from search engines to the hub.  Just edit something and republish.  It will be re-featured.  If you can think of a way to make it more appealing to Google, do that too.

      Thank you psycheskinner for your reply. I have done that in the past and traffic did pickup for awhile. I'm going to try it again.

    Okay that's something different. I never had NFT. Sharing via other sources like Twitter helps too.

      Thanks for shedding light on NFQ. I hope I want have to deal with that one.

    NFT seems to count only search engine traffic. Other sources like Pinterest etc are not counted towards it.

    Rather than screw around rewriting with no clear sense of direction why not merely delete the article and post it later on a site that doesn't do that to you?  That's what I'll be doing the first time one of my things is "unfeatured".

      Because Hubpages has a better overall CPM than most of the other options.  So 10 seconds' work to restore it is a pretty worthwhile investment.

        No it doesn't.  There are always other options with higher CPMs than HP.

        And I'm pretty sure it takes more than a mere 10 seconds to make something traffic worthy.

        shasha123 should not waste time and just dump it rather than fish around blindly trying to figure out what it is that HP needs to make it more worthy of featuring.  I know of people who have jerked around with the same article multiple times only to never seem to get it right.

        Dump it, I say, and post it somewhere else where at least it can make SOMETHING (even if it's a lousy 3 cents a day) versus the big fat zero it's gonna earn as "uinfeatured".

          Hi Vic I do have a few that have low traffic. What site do you suggest that has a higher CPM to post them on? I do not bother editing something just so that it will be refeatured--even if that is effective I do not think it is a good strategy for the subdomain┬┤s total traffic.
          (Suggesting setting up a new web site really does not cut it for me.)

          I am thinking of deleting 2 of my hubs and posting them somewhere. At first they were unfeatured due to no traffic. Then now they are unfeatured due to quality. It does not make sense to me that they are no longer of quality as they were already featured for 4 years. How come that they have lost there qualities?

    Consider what people will be searching for who are looking for your hub.  Does it answer a question they might type into Google? If so, use that phrase or question as your title or in subtitles and then actually answer what that query would be.  When you have hubs that are not featured for traffic, it's usually pretty easy to make a few quick adjustments that can help them improve. 

    I've found that a lot of hubs that get unfeatured for this reason have bad titles and descriptions.  People don't know what it is, neither does Google, so it's never found.

      Thanks ChristinS your comments made a lot of since and I'm going to think about making a title change.
