I edited a Hub but it's not featured. It has a higher score than some of my other hubs that are featured.
Not sure why that is?
Take a look at WHY it's not featured and tell us. Then we can help.
I recently have had this same dilemma. The score was higher than any initial score I have had in the past and was not featured. Is it a conundrum of humor or is it a conundrum of confusing and difficult? So, in essence my empathy is extended. Can you post a link to it for the experienced greater than I to peek at?
First. IMHO, is to be familiar and understand the QAP process for ‘New Hubs’ published.
A Human Outsource MTurk readers rate a Hub based on Substance, Organization, and Grammar. That is subjective based upon objective guidelines. Those guidelines follow below.
A bot crawl technique based on the wizardry of programming uses an algorithm to assess Hubs. It is a concrete measurement solely objective. That algorithm is very thorough, can be tweaked by programming, and is very sly metaphorically. Notation: That process occurs through programed intervals and may be constant.
So, what to do with a conundrum now observed may be a trend with New Hubs.
1 Look at the score
2 Compare it with HubPages Rating Scale
3 Notate that a common cause for not featured for New Hubs is spammy elements. Seen at the Rating Scale Guide is that is no longer listed for a rating at 8, which is the new aim for Niche sites as announced by HP Blog.
4 Review how HP 'Defines Spammy Elements'
5 Review what a Stellar Hub is.
6 Give your attention to the recommended word count at 1,150 while observing this quote, “Filler text, fluff, personal conjecture, and pointless rambling does not cut the mustard here."
7 Remember and consider that the MTurk process knows those objectives above when subjectively assessing a Hub.
8 Remember to have Fun, Fun, Fun . . . as best as can be . . .
In golf, is it better to get a hole in one or one in the hole?
Haha! A semantics issue. No matter how you say it when you are at the tee on a par three short golf hole and you try to get your golf ball in the hole in three shots to make a par, if perchance you hit the ball and it goes into a 4.5" diameter hole, you are thrilled beyond expectations as most golfers don't do this in a life time.
Thanks for your comment cookbooklady!

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the time of year, holidays, seasons, and current events to name a few. If left alone,...

On what basis a featured hub is going un-featured. Even when the hub is getting traffic from google, will that be un-featured?A hub of mine is getting traffic from google, it was now un-featured. Strange! What is the criteria HP is following to un-feature a hub?Now it is really a frustrating issue,...

How many times have there been forums posts regarding this "experiment" of featuring and un-featuring" hubs due to traffic and trying to guess what Google wants. Experts with probably more expertise than anyone at HP have said over and over that no-follow attributes can and will hurt...

From what I have seen featuring /not featuring a hub does little for traffic and it appears to be a catalyst that is sending authors to other sites (Bubblews comes to mind). My understanding is that once a hub becomes un-featured it effectively stops its ability to get traffic from search engines....

The purpose of this post is NOT to moan and groan, but rather to better understand it, by sharing your insight and experiences. Obviously we now have to work using its parameters. Stayin' Alive Ha Ha Ha

All of a sudden I find 4 of my hubs unfeatured, for lack of quality, for the first time. These hubs are from 2 to 3 years old and more and get a good amount of traffic from a few hundred views to several hundred views a month. What can possibly go wrong with such hubs when all along up to this time...
