I have a lot of unfeatured hubs and due to my busy schedule i am unable to make any changes to them. So i just wanted to know should i just delete those hubs or should i let them remain as they are. Does it mean these hubs cannot help me earn money either from amazon or adsense?
You can still make money off unfeatured hubs because they are still published. It just means that they aren't indexed in search engines or displayed around Hubpages. You can still share them on social media and link to them. They just won't get as much traffic.
I wouldn't delete them, I'd just fix one a week until they are all refeatured. I can give you suggestions on how to fix them if tell me which ones you want refeatured first.
No, a Hub being unfeatured just means it can't be seen by the search engine. Which means it will eventually get de-indexed and not get traffic from the search engine. However, as long as ads are on it and you have HP Ad Program and/or Adsense activated, it will earn money if it gets traffic. Probably not much though.
However, I don't usually leave a Hub here that is unfeatured because I don't see the point in leaving something up if it doesn't get traffic. Usually I move them.
You can just make some minor improvements and they will be featured again.
Thanks so much for your responses, perhaps i should get the hubs featured then, since if they are not getting indexed by google, then it can hardly get any traffic. I cant just bank upon the social media since i dont have a big following. Thanks so much

Let me preface this by stating I am not trying to be mean or a troll. In fact, I avoid the forums because I don't want to get involved. But with so many posts about the topics I'm about to discuss, I wanted to put in my two cents and to offer a reality check to old and new hubbers...

I've been writing here for quite a few years, I go back to the ancient era before the 'featured' 'not featured' declension.I have found that 'fixing' a Hub which is not featured is a total waste of time, as in a day or so, after a fix, it is back to unfeatured. I did an experiment and I can...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

Awhile back the team started unfeaturing articles due to lack of traffic. Many here think this is a bad idea, and I agree. Doing this upsets many writers and has nothing to do with quality or how Google views our work...except for the fact that leaving low or no traffic articles online...

I don't suppose I'm the only person wondering what happens if the machinations - automated or otherwise - lead to HubPages having a much REDUCED income stream from Amazon.Make no mistake - as Google Adsense income dives (which it has been doing consistently for months) - income from Amazon modules...

My hub that seems most popular with over 52,000 reads is at the bottom of my hubs with a 69 and it has been 70's so I sharpened it up some just to have it fall. How can this be? I hate to delete it but I think that is what many would do who cannot get a hub to rise in score. Actually I had over 100...
