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yaa........if your article has not been featured it will not be published...........so check your inbox associated with hubpages as the hub page team must have send u a mail regarding ur hub status whether it needs improvement or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 am being challenged. I have been having a problem getting a new hub to be featured. It has gone through QAP three times already. It is a new day, and I am feeling up to the challenge once again. Rested and refreshed after a good nights sleep, with a hopeful heart. So! Now, the hub will be going...

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 traffic! That's a lot! Over half my articles! I don't have the time...

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 process was initiated to reduce the number of ‘low quality’ pages on the site. The...

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 views our work...except for the fact that leaving low or no traffic articles online...

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 just months ago and are engaging, have beautiful pictures and very few links....

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...
