    A hub I wrote yesterday is not featured or pending, what is happening with that hub?

    It is on my profile page, but in my accounts it has no featured or pending icon. In fact it doesnt have any icon.

    It takes 24 hours to get the 'featured' status for a hub. If not you can write your query to  team@hubpages.com
    You can try this too---go to 'edit' option, make minor changes and press 'done editing' option. It might go to 'pending' status again and then 'featured' later on. This happened with one of my hubs once and later was corrected.
    Good luck!

    This is a new situation to me.  But you can contact the Hubpages tech team for things like this.  Here's the link to the tech questions page:

    If it is not featured then it has a no index tag and won't be indexed by the search engines until it is edited enough to become featured.

    If I understand you correctly, then your hub went through the evaluation process, during which its status, which shows up as status "pending" in the Featured column. After that, no H in a circle appeared. That means that evaluation is complete, and that hub did not meet the requirements to be a featured hub. It is till available by its direct URL (permalink), but it does not show up on your list of published hubs and is not indexed by Google?

    What can you do?
    If you are focused on earning money on HubPages, then revise and improve the hub. Make it better!
    If you simply want to share poems, stories, and your own writing, and are less concerned about income, you can edit your Profile, scroll dow n to "Show only featured hubs on my profile" and change the choice to "no." Then all your hubs will be visible on your profile, even ones that have not achieved "featured" status. This lets everyone see all you've published on your profile, but it can reduce your earnings potential.

    I bet your hub needs to be edited and give more quality (if you think isn't enough) some hubs required 24 hours assessment for a hub to be featured with well quality content. What I do, is that I edit them which is subject for re submission. Meaning pending for featuring approval. Just try it. God bless.

      Thanks , yes I will try to improve on it and resubmit, Maybe I wrote it a little too relaxed and not formal enough. I am kind of new.  Trial and error I guess

    I have found this happen to me as well..The grey symbols are difficult to see and a couple of times they disappeared entirely   I closed out my session and went back into my account and there they were.  Also, firefox is more difficult to see in as opposed to Windows Explorer, but  WE is not supported fully with hubpages.  If I want a clear view, I go to WE to view things.   Other comments have the meat to contact hubpages.  Good luck!!

    Make sure you don't have any notifications from the editor of the site that you need to correct.
    Hope this helps.

      No notifications, that is what confused me , but i think i get it. no icon at all means it is in hubs, but not indexed, so if i want it on google , i have to edit and resubmit smile it does help , reminded me to check my notifications smile i always forget

    I guess they allowed it through but they decided it wasn't high enough quality to feature?
