I am new to HubPages and currently have an article that is an "In the Spotlight" featured Hub, however it has the lowest views out of all my articles. I have gone back and edited a couple that are now up for review but seeing as how this one is featured, I did not see a need to edit it.
Any suggestions on how to attract more views? I would love some comments under the article to know what you guys think.

Hi Stephanie, when in doubt I look at the stellar hub recommendations, they seem to help a lot to get more traffic..
You can find them here

Also, keep writing. The more hubs the better. Especially if they are related to each other. At least that has been my experience.
Hope this helps.
I think you're misunderstanding what Featured means.
When the Featured/unFeatured system was introduced, a Featured Hub was just a normal Hub. UnFeatured Hubs were called "Idle Hubs". They changed the names because people were getting upset about it, but it doesn't change what it means!
A Featured Hub is just a normal Hub. If a Hub is unFeatured, it means HubPages doesn't think it's good enough to show to the general public. You can still get views by sharing it on social media but otherwise, it won't get traffic.
As Robie suggests, take a look at the Stellar Hub recommendations - you don't have to include ALL the suggested features, (for instance sometimes a poll doesn't make sense), just tick as many as you can. Also look at your Hub in "Mobile preview" and make sure the photos look right.
Finally, I have a Hub about how to use photos legally - you'll find it in the spotlight on the profile. Please read it and make sure you've used photos that are legal, as it can be an expensive mistake if you get sued!
Also, you choose which Hubs appear in the Spotlight section of your profile.
Thank you for all the tips Marisa. I understand that unfeatured will not be seen by the general public perusing HubPages. Of course my goal is to be searchable and Featured without having to promote via a direct link on social media. I have taken a look at the Stellar Hub recommendations and will try to incorporate what I have missed. I appreciate your feedback.

I was just wanting a few other opinions about this type of unfeatured hub. Lately I have had like three go on the unfeatured list due to lack of traffic. They are some of my first posts here, and I am posting them back on social media sites, but I'm not so sure it's important to me at this point to...

I'm in the process of migrating my content from my blog to HubPages and just transferred an article titled "Top 50 Men's Grooming Blogs for 2014." I just switched this article to HubPages a few moments ago (using a 301 redirect). I'm already on the first page of google for the key term...

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

I noticed that several of my hubs were showing the half-darkened circle which means un-featured for traffic, so, natuarally, I went and made some improvements, only to find that then the circle became complely blank, meaning un-featured for quality. It seems to me that if they were low...
