What do the Z's under the featured heading on your account page mean?
If you hold your pointer on the "Z" it will explain all about your hub not being visited to often and that may be you should edit them.
I just noticed them on two of my hubs that get very little traffic and was going to raise the same question. Should we delete these hubs? Or perhaps edit and try to improve?
On your accounts page look at the note at the top and click on the links in it. That will give you further information. The Zzz means that hub has been put on "Idle"--not put out to Google. It explains there the reason why, too.
It means, those hubs are dormant, not getting enough traffic. It also means that these hubs are probably not indexed by search engines.

There is a new blog post from Paul Edmondson regarding the Idle Hub.
After reading the blog post this morning, I went to "my account", and have already updated a few of them.
I found just what Paul Edmondson indicated, that these are Hubs that have not been updated in a while.
The blog does not indicate that these will be kept from Google Search, but that they probably have not been reaching Google Search, and this will breathe new life, or be cause for burial. (Depends on the author).
If you write unique content, with good quality, I would say, do not delete these, but simply visit and give them some love.
It is good to re-check your tags, and summary.
Another good thing that has occurred with the Idle Hub action, is that it gave me a chance to re-do the summary, tags, on older Hubs, and found that a couple of Hubs fit better in an altered Catagory.
The Z's could be parallelled to sleeping - Not Dead.
They mean that particular Hub is idle. I was wondering myself when I logged in today.

Earlier today, all my hubs contained the "H" icon in the featured column, which means featured. Now two of my hubs have no icon at all, that space is completely empty. Does anyone know why?
