I have no featured icon by a few of my hubs; what does this mean?
It means those Hubs will not be featured in the topics section of HP and that they will not get indexed by Google. If you edit those Hubs, add text or videos or links, they might be brought back to featured status and will have a chance to be indexed and will be featured in the topics on HP. Essentially Hubs which are receiving less traffic eventually stop getting featured.
As with the old system of yellow squares and "zzz" symbols, all you have to do to bring a hub from idle to featured is make one simple edit somewhere in the hub. I've had to do it several times, and each time it went back to featured status after 24 hours.
The plain white space that's now next to your hubs has replaced the old sleeping Zzz's for idled hubs. If you would like your hubs featured again then I have a quick fix for you that will get your hubs back into the lime light - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Quick-fi … led-status I hope this helps you out soconfident.
