    I just noticed that one of my featured hubs got "un-featured" sad 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."
