How to write a featured hub?
When we visit the HomePage, we see featured hubs. Now, is it possible to write featured hubs by the normal hubbers?
I think featureb hub must be original, informative, written in correct grammer, good organzation, interesting. Most important thing is, it must be evaluated by hubpages staff members.
have come to accept from the moment I signed up on Hubpages I may never see any of my articles featured. Hubpages motifs on deciding what gets featured may not strictly be profit related. They're protecting their own skin.
Most of the featured articles are using topics that are conventional and safe in nature. Basic "how to's", "what is this/that", and "how this/that works." Nothing that you couldn't find in wikipedia, an encyclopedia, etc. If you want to get featured be prepared to write some articles with the following rules:
A) Conventional topics people tend to read: pop culture, media, child raising, cooking, maybe some outdoor activities, etc.
B) Non controversial: Hubpages doesn't want to held liable or looking like they're promoting the views of a given author. So, controversial Hubs will never get featured.
C) Safe writing styles (stay academic): Definitely don't use any "I" statements, cite everything, deliberately make the article anal (definitely don't use the word anal).
D) Stay unoriginal and keep your fingers crossed that somehow you're noticed out of possibly hundreds of the same unoriginal Hubs on the same popular topic.
There are good articles and then there are great articles. There are articles that get bad attention and articles that noticed for all the right reasons. Here are some tips to writing a great article that will get you noticed for the right reasons. read more

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...

A new accolade was recently introduced regarding the number of featuring of hubs. It is a wonderful concept and everyone appreciated. Now I would like request the HP people for introducing a new kind of Accolade. If more than 60% of the hubs of a hubber is Featured, he can...

Let me preface this by stating I am not trying to be mean or a troll. In fact, I avoid the forums because I don't want to get involved. But with so many posts about the topics I'm about to discuss, I wanted to put in my two cents and to offer a reality check to old and new hubbers...

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...

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....
