In recent weeks I have been encountering issues with hubs getting featured. Out of 10 published hubs I manage only 2 featured ones. Prior to Hub Hopper this was not the case. In my opinion, the hubs are of high quality with quite a decent quality rating (normally in the early 70's). Hubs do include one or two links, but they are relevant.
I would appreciate if you have a look at the below hubs and tell me what you think.

Your use of photographs lifted from wherever instead of legally-sourced images may be your problem.
mmm thats an interesting one, as I have given credit to the owners.
You need to get permission, whether you give credit or not.
You may find reading this very useful,
I took a very quick look at your motorcycle helmet article, and I think that in addition to the advice you've already been given regarding photographs, your advice in the article is too general and vague. Basically, to answer the question "how to choose the best motorcycle helmet," you are not saying much more than "choose a good, strong one that protects your head."
If I were needing to know how to choose a good motorcycle helmet, I would want to know much more. How do I KNOW I am getting a good, strong one? What should it be made of? Plastic? Aluminum? Some sort of patented space-age material? What should be in between the layers? Styrofoam? Gel? Air? Cotton padding? You mention "modular configurations." Are they god or bad? What even are they?
How do I know I am getting a good helmet and a good fit? Are some brands better than others? What about a used helmet that someone wore in a crash? Are helmets rated for strength and protection by some sort of agency, or applied a score based upon some sort of strength or effectiveness scale? Are there any types I should absolutely avoid?
As I stated, I only gave the hub a quick look, so pardon me if you have answered some of these questions, but my overall hunch is that to pass QAP you need to give much more specific advice on what to look for in a helmet.
I see that perhaps these articles have passed QAP, so maybe my advice is not necessary after all.

Slowly but surely more and more of my hubs are getting unfeatured. Does not really matter what I do, the result is always the same. Is it time to leave hubpages once each and ever one of my hub is unfeatured?

Am I taking crazy pills, or is there another google update going on, or what? My traffic dropped on 8/8/13 from about 150 views a day to 0-9. My top hub is getting zero every day now. My hub score dropped from 90-something to 76. No overpromotion, no suddenly unfeatured...

Okay, so I've been offline for a year and am now getting back to grips with HubPages. However (as you can imagine) my views are zero now and none of my hubs are featured.I can completely understand due to my inactivity so am not complaining, but the hub featured feature was very new and had only...

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.
