Would You say it were a great honour to have a hub/s featured?

    Would You say it were a great honour to have a hub/s featured?

    I currently can't get over having my writings listed as featured.  -Though I haven't found where any are yet.  I haven't looked beyond my caccount page!  Can't help basking in the glory!
    But, what does it mean?  Is it like a knighthood?, is it permanent or just until something better comes along, or is there a time limit?

    Your hubs are idle for around 24 hours until Hubpages and Google approve them. Then they are all featured. The only way for them to become not featured is if they become idle (Without the H beside them) Then all you must do is edit them a bit to get them featured again.

    Sorry it is simply a feature of your account page that makes it look nice and allows you to choose which hubs are highlighted in your feature section.

    i find that having my hubs featured makes me feel happy and proud that my hubs are well sought by viewers. However, getting those idle hubs to be "Featured" aren't easy. Tried editing , adding capsules and video just ain't working.

    Ah, I see.  So there's no difference between 'published' and featured then...

    Yup, saying a hub is featured is better than saying a hub that isn't is "NOINDEX"ed which is the case. Bad thing for the non-featured hubs, rather than good thing for the published hub. But I don't see the glass necessarily as half-empty, but rather it has a crack in it and a lipstick stain from the last customer. smile
