    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

      Yep!  The best part is that you don't have to do all of them all at once.  You can do one every few days, if that's all you have time for, and you'll have them all featured again in no time.
