I have spent the last month editing, updating, and writing new hubs. This week I received an email from HubPages that I have published 25 Featured Hubs, which puts me in the Top 3% of Hubbers that have "achieved this milestone."
I am so thankful for the feedback that so many of you have given about my hubs. You have made me a better writer, and I am encouraged to keep writing and to keep improving.
On to the next 25. Shouldn't take long now you've got the hang of it
Well done! Glad to have you with us on HubPages.
Wish you good luck for more 100 hubs
Congratulations on reaching this milestone.
That's really awesome congratulations. Accolades are fun and rewarding. I'm shooting for some myself!
Congratulations Michelle on achieving this milestone.
Nice hubs, hope you will reach your next milestone of another 25 articles soon!!
Congratulations! You've given me the motivation to update my hubs now.
I was absent from HubPages for so long that I didn't know about all the changes they had made. I started paying attention to their emails and suggestions to update my Hubs. The first one I worked on had the most traffic, and I continued with that strategy for all the others. I unpublished one Hub, and have since written five more. It was a lot of work, but my traffic is up and I'm motivated to keep going. Cheers!
Congrats you just have to keep writing. I have over 100 featured. If you update old ones they will be featured.
Keep up the good work!
I got 169 Hubs, and (Barry White voice) they allllllll featured, baby.
Mind you, hardly anybody's READING those 169 Hubs, but hey...featured!!
They should be you have some good jams. Maybe try some SEO tweaks with titles? You never know that may work.
(shrugs) Meh. I've tried playing the SEO game and I suck at it. Nowadays I write stuff, throw it out there and leave it up to the Internet Gods. If they like it, fine. If not, I write some more stuff and try again.
It may not be the most profitable way to do things 'round here but it's way less stressful.
When I am able to pimp/promote my stuff via social media channels I do pretty well, but lately I haven't had the time for that so things have been kinda "all quiet on the Western front," so to speak.
Gotcha. Well if is any consolation I read your stuff lol.
When I started editing my hubs last month, I also began to use Google Adwords tool to find related words and phrases that I had not included. Granted, I don't review all 700 options, but I do review the first and second pages after sorting by 'Suggested Bid' amount. I do believe this is how I was able to get them all featured. It is extra work, but there is a payoff in traffic.
Freddy, I do the same except I pin my hubs on Pinterest. Most of my traffic comes from Pinterest now so it is worth the 2 minutes it takes to pin it.
I use Pinterest, but I've never had much luck getting any traffic out of it. I guess I'm not posting the kind of stuff that "pinners" are looking for.
I have a couple of hubs on Pinterest, but I don't get a lot of traffic. Right now Pinterest is blocking ToughNickel so I'm getting zero traffic from those pins.
I make sure to pin my hubs before they get moved to a niche site to avoid problems like blocking ToughNickel.
Mostly they are looking for pretty photos to make their wall look pretty. Trim your first photo and add some appealing text to it, you may get more views.
I am in awe. HubPages has provided an amazing platform to meet other writers and the opportunity to improve as I go. Congrats on having 169 Featured Articles, and Cheers!
Congrats on the milestone. Keep on writing and fix your next goal 50 and 100 and so on. For your information, I have done a couple of hubs, all to motivate the freshers here. Please find and read the same. Wish you all the best.
Congratulations!!! Hope it is just one among many milestones...
Congrats! Are you making any money yet? I just recently got my fifth featured hub. It's quite odd though because one of my strategies for making articles rank high on Google is including a few links inside the article to similar content stuff and links to the websites you are talking about in the article. This helped my ranking on Google a lot. However, here on hubpages it seems to be penalized as far as score and ranking on Hubpages goes. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to rank the articles on Google while adhering to the strict hubpages rules lol
"Making money" on HubPages doesn't happen overnight, and quite frankly it can take years to make money consistently. I've been on HP for five years but was active during the first two. I only recently logged in to see what was happening. If I had posted content regularly then I would probably have a decent source of passive income. It takes time, dedication and a real committment to your craft, to continually improve....and make consistent revenue. HubPages has incredible forums and tutorials that are very helpful. Cheers!
Oh, I know I've ran dozens of sites that I sold that were making 200-500$ monthly on adsense. Was just wondering if you had any pennies in the account yet from your articles lol

Should the non featured hubs be unpublished?One of my favorite hub, published 10 months ago, which has received lot of appreciation, comments and views is notified by HP as non featured, due to not satisfying quality standards. My making changes and improvements did not help either. It is still...

I was really surprised to notice a new accolade today - for 1,000 Hubs in featured status simultaneously. Yippeee! Thank you, HubPages! With some consistent work, most of my Hubs are featured and I am thankful for that. Keeping Hubs fresh, updated, and interesting can help our readership and...

Perhaps long term experienced hubbers can help with this. HP allows me to choose six hubs that will rotate at the top of my profile. Which should I choose?The oldest? the newest? The most popular based on number of views.? The least popular? The ones declining? The ones with the up...

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...

Can any one tell me why hundreds of my hubs that were Features have now gone to Not Featured (engagement) This is very upsetting. I have over 440 hubs and now most of them are Not featured.If anyone has a answer for this please tell me!
