    Are the hubs without an 'H' next to them idle hubs? And if so why do I suddenly have so many?

    Does this mean that the person or persons who are checking them decide that they are not good enough all of a sudden after two years of being on the internet? I personally think Hubpages is trying to confuse me!

    I noticed that too Nell!  I deleted several of mine that didn't have an H.  If I need to I will revise and republish them.

    Hello Nell, The hubs without an "H" took the place of the Zzz's. All you need to do is edit the hub a bit, add pictures, change the summary, etc. and it will become alive again. Good luck. smile

    I noticed that, too, so I read up on it earlier tonight. Apparently, hubs with an "H" next to them are featured and suggested to search engines because of their great quality, while hubs without the "H" are floating in a limbo of sorts until the quality assurance algorithm deems them worthy of additional exposure. You can try editing the hubs that don't have the "H" - it forces the QA algorithm to reevaluate them as it would a new article.

    The information I read did say that not all hubs without an "H" are necessarily bad, and that not all hubs with an "H" are necessarily good. What this tells me is that they're probably still working on the new system, so I wouldn't worry about it quite yet.

    Hope that helps!

    I have the same problem!!!  I keep trying to show my other hubs on my profile that aren't "featured" and whether or not I save the changes, the whole system kicks the changes back to showing ONLY featured hubs!  I'm really upset about it.

      There is a message when you click the H.  It seems Hubpages is indicating that the articles are good.

      The hubs without the "H" are the ones that are asleep. smile

    Hi Nell. Apparently I'm the exception. The number of H-less hubs is about the same as the old Zzz ones.

    I'm attempting to save my lower-traffic hubs from falling into oblivion. This is a special problem for me, because I write about things that interest me--including the perennial Zzz subject, maths, which few people are interested in.

    I don't know if this is a good strategy, but I like to feature some hubs that have not had any traffic for the past week.

    Yes, I have a few of each.  Featured hubs are the ones with an "H", and Hubpages is featuring them.  The others just aren't.
