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.
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.
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.
hi Nell. sometimes i got this 10 idle hubs, same time..one day its all with H and then the next time I checked, there are so many idle hubs. just finished editing some of my hubs.
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.
@JThomp42 you really describe exactl solution. I appreciate for your good and accurate answer.Obviously we need to do edit the hub, pictures, change the summary.

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

Does “Idle Hubs” have a chance to be “Featured” again without editing it?If you have idle hubs and you just let it stay idle for some time, is there a chance that it may be featured again? Or it will just stay idle forever and will ruin your portfolio?

I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but I'm having issues noticing when a hub goes idle. Is there any way we can put like a red H icon on idle hubs instead of leaving it blank? That would make it much easier to find quickly.

Revamping my idle hubs, does it really work?I just spent like 3 hours or better, no lie. Trying to update idle, non featured hubs that stopped doing well. I was wondering how long it takes to get them indexed? I would like to see them making money again. I tweeked them, and also did the tital over....
