I just noticed that one of my featured hubs got "un-featured" What could be the reason for this?
Could it be due to fall in traffic? Or is it just content based? Do you think I should try making changes in the content and try to resubmit it? Would that help?
Yes, it could be all that you have mentioned. Definitely do some editing and it will become featured again in around 24 hours.
Welcome to the world of "Idled" Hubs...happens to everybody. Don't panic. Just re-edit the Hub, give it a few tweaks, and send it back out there again.
I would venture to guess it's falling traffic on the hub. The help page does say ratings are determined by quality of the hub and traffic. If you edit the hub, it will get a second look and will be shared again. This might bring up the traffic.
Per the help page (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Featured-Hubs):
"How the Quality Assessment Process Works
The Quality Assessment Process incorporates several factors, including:
-Ratings of a Hub’s quality as determined by people using the Hub Hopper
-Ratings of a Hub’s quality as determined by automated metrics
-Analysis of the how engaged readers are with a Hub over an extended period of time
As Hubs mature, are edited, and are expanded upon, they are reviewed again by the Quality Assessment Process. This means that any Hub may eventually become Featured, and vice-versa."
There could be multiple reasons, however I have a quick fix for those nasty idled hubs, that will get your idled hub back into the lime light fast - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Quick-fi … led-status I hope this helps you out.

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

Something happened to me today that I have not experienced before.I did some "gardening" and revision work on one of my featured Hubs... and I was "done editing" it stopped being "featured"...
