About a month ago I got a notice that a Hub I have was made an Editors Choice.
I just got a notice that it was unfeatured.
Of course I cannot email them about this because "Please do not reply to this message, it was sent from an unmonitored address".
So my Editors Choice Hub was unfeatured.
Seriously.....I give up.
If a hub is unfeatured due to not enough traffic, it is no big deal. Make a couple of word changes and it will be featured again soon.
Nope that didn't work.
Although I do have a red triangle so the traffic is up to that Hub despite it being unfeatured.
Now it has two red triangles.
Maybe being unfeatured is good.
Add a better photo for example, check for things that may need updating, and so on, then soon it will be back up and running. its happened to all of us, no sweat.
There are only two options, and you can tell which one it is by looking at the circle beside it on your account page.
If it's not unFeatured for Engagement (which means lack of Google traffic), then it must be unFeatured for Quality. Which is it?
It says quality.
But the quality was excellent a couple of months ago.
And no I didn't change anything since them.
OK, that is weird. However, be aware that quality does not mean quality as the ordinary person would interpret it.
It probably means that the Hub is breaking a rule in some way.
Are there any links in the Hub? Sometimes what happens is that one of the websites that you've linked to, gets infected with a virus - that will trigger a warning and HubPages will unpublish your Hub for linking to an infected website.
Thanks Marisa but it is just too much of a hassle to mess with anymore.
I may tinker with it a bit then move it out somewhere else if nothing works.
AdCents is not the big money maker it used to be and I dont see the point spending a lot of time on it.
But thanks again for the ideas.

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...

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...

I logged in to Hubpages this morning to find that whereas previously, I had two unfeatured hubs that I have been intending to get around to editing or deleting, I now have 25 UNFEATURED for "lack of engagement".Whilst I appreciate that the older hubs may well need some work or in some...

I recently updated a hub and it was unfeatured for quality.This is a page with over 180,000 views (search engines like it) and a view duration of 4.11 minutes (readers like it).There are a lot of Amazon ads but they are regularly clicked by visitors so they are obviously a valuable part of the...

Is the Featured Hub Policy too zealous?I just had a bunch of Hubs UnFeatured due to lack of interest, including one called "Making Money During a Bear Market" that has a Hub Score of 90, with135 views over the past 7 days, and 405 views over the past 30 days. Jeeze, how much more...

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?
