Is the Hubpages 'Featured Hubs' going to reduce traffic?
I'm curious about this. As for my own hubs, many have had to sit idle for 3-6 months, then would start to get great traffic as Google gives respect to older content. Will the fact that search engines can't see our content mean that traffic will reduce? Or will re-publishing them after 3-6 months have the same effect as naturally aging?
I wonder about that too, some hubs take ages to mature. If hubs don't get serious traffic for 3-6 months, what happens when hubpages decides to idle them during a dry spell? It becomes a useless hub I guess...
I understand your concern about idled hubs not getting traffic. I think that the hard work & time that everyone has taken to create a hub shouldn't be wasted, and if your interested I have a quick fix to get all of your hubs back into the lime light - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Quick-fi … led-status I hope this helps you all out.
A simple solution is just to edit something in the hub. But, this doesn't help content to age naturally and gives hubbers unnecessary work. I am lookng to find out if aged content will still gain traffic ... Or, if we have to edit hubs every month
When they started to put the "H" sign besides the "good" hubs, all of mine got the sign except one. A few weeks later, several hubs got the sign removed, I guess because of little traffic. The next week, some of the same hubs got the sign back when the traffic increased. Makes me wonder why they go through the worthless exercise.
You have raised a rather interesting point Brett. I think that it's quite natural for hubs to experience a drop in traffic as they sit idle, but Google wont send any large amount of generic traffic to them if after 3-6 months nothing much have been done to them to make them traffic worthy. In fact, I have tried to dress up a few of my old idled hubs, but they only remain active for a period before going back to idle. I am wondering if the fact that I have updated the content of most of these hubs, they have been automatically transformed to new hubs(new content)! If this is the case, I think the next time I might do just a little tweet here and there so as prevent them from appearing as totally fresh contents.
Interesting reply. Normally it seems to take 3-6 months for hubs to get well established. I've had dead hubs just 'take off' many times. Worried that won't happen now ... still, I guess constant tweaking is good, so long as you have the time for it
In regards to the issue of "Time", you are so right Brett. I find that instead of creating new hubs, or even spending the time reading and commenting on other's hubs, I often ended up spending my time tweaking hubs or just staring blank!
Featured Hubs should be constantly updated to get a constant visits. Otherwise there would be no difference between a matured and a dead one?
While I agree hubs should be updated, there is a big difference. A 'dead hub' is not in search engines and as far as I can see, won't mature. A well written matured hub will often continue to draw traffic, even when not updated for a long time.

Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that...
