Hi fellow Hubbers
I just wrote my first articles and am excited to see the outcome. I wrote it a few days ago and I noticed that it shows published but it doesn't show "featured". Does it take some time to be featured ? or is there a place where I can see what I did wrong?
If it is not featured, that means it didn't pass the QAP (Quality Assessment). This is another way to say it needs improvement. You can rework it and and it will go through QAP again. If you want your article seen by search engines it must be featured. Not sure if there is a place to see what you need to improve, you might have gotten an email about it.
Edit: Here's more on the subject https://hubpageshelp.com/features/Learn … tured-Hubs
You have no articles that are published and accessible to other Hubbers so we can't offer advice.
If there is a arrow in a circle by it, it is still being assessed. If it has been assessed and failed your will have been sent an email saying way, check your spam filter.
yaa........if your article has not been featured it will not be published...........so check your inbox associated with hubpages as the hub page team must have send u a mail regarding ur hub status whether it needs improvement or some other issue. Till ur hubs are not featured they cant be published.
Plus you need to have at least 5 hubs in place to acquire the 'featured' status. So I suggest you submit all 5 hubs and then follow them up through the QAP while continuing to submit more hubs.

I'm not asking about why hubs get featured or un-featured. I kind of know that.The issue is: I just did a category search in my hubs, and found that, out of 292 published hubs, 149 are unfeatured due to low...

Awhile back the team started unfeaturing articles due to lack of traffic. Many here think this is a bad idea, and I agree. Doing this upsets many writers and has nothing to do with quality or how Google...

I joined HubPages since 2009 and was most active in 2010 and 2011. I'm starting to work more on articles once again seeing if I can be successful like I used to be. One of my hubs that I published yesterday is not...

Many good quality pages are Idled (become unfeatured) via ‘Analysis of the how engaged readers are with a Hub over an extended period of time’ – essentially because they get low traffic.It appears that this...

I saw a dramatic traffic drop today and went to notice that over 100 of my hubs are not featured. While I can understand some of my older ones published over 4 years ago were not that great, some of them were published...
