Have you ever published a featured hub?
Would be very grateful to hear your experiences of featured hubs - do you get more views? is it ranked higher generally? should the standard be very high? etc.
My very first one is featured, I'm getting on average 10 views a day.. It does show up when Health category is selected on the first page - this might be a benefit. However, I think the views don't really depend whether the hub is featured or not . Making your hub SEO friendly, promoting it, the number of followers and the most important the CONTENT are what make the viewers visit your hubs Hope this helped
It's not that hard to guarantee that your hub will end up featured. All of my hubs are and I did it by simply being sensitive in both grammar and spelling. Hubs with at least 500 words are also most likely to be featured compared to those with less. I really don't know whether featured hubs get more traffic. But knowing that your hub passed the hubpages' quality standards somehow gives you a hint as to what to expect; more traffic.
Yes, I have published a few. Let's just say they do not become featured. In fact, they do poorly compared to the rest of my hubs.
All of my Hubs have been featured so far. It absolutely increases your chances of high page views as it allows search engines to find you. While the HubPages community is great for advice and networking, most of your views need to come from search engine traffic if you hope to make any money at it, so getting Featured is crucial.
The standard for spelling and grammar should be high, but I think that goes for all writing you put out there on the internet. No matter how solid the information and facts you present may be, people won't view them with as much credibility if the formatting and mechanics contain errors.
Word count also seems to be an issue. To be in the HubPages Apprenticeship program, I believe the minimum is 5-600, so why not shoot for that? I can't say that I've ever come across a featured Hub that was significantly less than that either.
Best of luck!
I don't think you understand. She means "Headings" that HubPages suggests you label your hubs. The Title to your Hubs that they suggest. All of our hubs are featured. We are talking about the titles that they suggest for you.
JThomp42, not all Hubs are Featured. The OP never mentioned titles, so the natural assumption is that she's talking about Hubs that pass the QA process &/or get showcased. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Featured-Hubs
Sorry, I was thinking she meant "Exclusive" hubs. As all hubs become featured within 24 hours.
Yes apologies - I meant featured/exclusive hubs sorry for the confusion!
All of my hubs are featured. Only 1 or 2 are not featured. Well, am gonna fix that soon and will make them featured.
If your Hub is not featured, then it is seen by members of HubPages ONLY. So yes, there is a huge difference in the number of views if your Hub is featured. The HubPages community is very small so you will get very few visitors to a Hub that is non-featured.
Your Hubs look more like blog posts than Hubs. A Hub is like an article you would read in a magazine. Try writing longer Hubs which go into your subjects in more depth.
I have 10 hubs (3 of them pending quality assessment). I thought at first that all hubs are featured because since the beginning (3-4 days ago) I have had every single hub published and have roughly 200 hub views in total.
I'm not sure about the rankings since all of mine have been featured.... but I can assure you that it doesn't always equal Adsense picking you up. I've been refused 4 times and I still can't figure out why since I have quality articles it seems. Oh well.
It really isn't hard to get your hub featured. You just need to follow their general guidelines (sufficient word count, add some pictures, use some videos) and you're pretty much going to get the featured status. Even if you don't get it the first time, you can edit the hub to get a second evaluation.

I was just wondering what hubbers considered as "good traffic" to one of your hubs? Some of my hubs only get a handful of reads a week, while others get consistently 75-100 reads a day. After looking at my hubs I think that getting 25-50 reads a day is decent. My hub topics vary greatly -...

I have 106 hubs published -- but of that number, I have ONE that gets at least 1/3 of all my total traffic, and now gets more than all of my other 105 hubs hits daily. It is somewhat entertaining and humorous-- but not what I consider one of my MOST entertaining and humorous. I Have some ideas why...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

I know that this is the most asked question here, but I'd still really appreciate it if anybody answered.I've been on Hubpages for about 6 months now, and I've just published my 7th Hub, and I'm starting to write a few more. As of right now, I have 239 total views, and each Hub has roughly 36...
