Will idle hubs get featured again if they have an uptick in traffic?
If a hub goes idle, and you post it to a forum where it starts generating good, regular traffic, will it become featured again even if you do not update it in any way?
Probably not. I had a couple of idle hubs and submitted them for backlinking but the sites refused them because they could not be "found". If you want to get them generating traffic, you will need to edit the hubs (even just slightly), so they get indexed again and THEN get them to a traffic generating place.
Here's a quick trick that will help get your idled hubs back into the lime light - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Quick-fi … led-status I hopes this is some help to you jellygator.
I posted my idle hubs in other websites. They generate more traffic over there but at hubpages, my other hubs attract more views instead because i posted other hub links. So, you may not expect your idle hubs become "feature" because you need to make some changes in details, photos, videos, etc.
I am just wondering if the idle thing has an automatic reversal built into it. It sounds like a no, but does anyone have more info on how it works that can say for certain that there it doesn't trigger a return to featured if it hits a certain amount of traffic or upvotes?
I thought the answer would be NO, but I had a hub on my other account that was de-indexed for forever and last week I noticed it was featured again?! It's possible that I edited it and just forgot that I did, but I don't think so. It's a hub made just for hubpages, so I had originally decided to let it stay idled.
I dunno. Interesting question.
