How do I get my Hubs featured?
I noticed among my hubs all my hubs with a hubscore of 70 or more are featured and all the ones below 70 are not featured. Does it only take a hubscore of 70 to get featured, or is there a much more complex method in how hubs become featured? Thanks!
There is not a minimum score of 70 for featured hubs. If you check my hubs, all of them currently have featured status (except the one I just added that is pending.) Most of them are 69 or lower. Traffic has a lot to do with the hubs score as well. As traffic drops off, the score goes down.
As I understand it, the moderators check over each hub that is posted, and if they feel it is creative and or informative enough, they mark it as featured. This may help clue you in to your highest quality hubs.
Though I am still very much learning.
If you check on HubPages FAQ's the following is listed:
"What are Featured Hubs?
When our Quality Assessment Process (QAP) identifies articles of particularly good quality, these Hubs are given a special status on HubPages that we refer to as Featured Hubs. Featured Hubs enjoy the following benefits:
They appear on HubPages' Topic Pages and others' Hubs
They are presented to external search engines
They are included in your public HubPages Profile
Hubs that have been recently published or updated, but not yet assessed by the QAP, will appear as "Pending" in My Account > Statistics. After being assessed by the QAP (which typically happens within 24 hours) their Pending status will be removed. If they become Featured, they will be identified by a black "H" symbol in My Account > Statistics.
Why are only some Hubs Featured?
At HubPages, we strive to highlight and promote the great Hubs, so instead of presenting all Hubs on our site’s major pages and making them available to be shown in search engine results, we carefully analyze each Hub to determine a curated set that we will showcase.
The overall quality of Hubs that we highlight on our site and make available to casual searchers is important because we want to create the best possible experience for readers while also giving Hubbers the opportunity to hone in on their online writing skills in a safe, supportive, and informative environment."
I hope this helps!
Here are some ways to get a featured hub. In order to get a higher score you might have the following:
~several pictures from your own collection
~ a video from your own collection
~ at least 500 words
~if doing a recipe, you should have a ratings capsule
~ a comments section
~ a summary
~ a good short title (4 or 5 words) repeated throughout the writing which can help you get traffic
I hope this helps out.

I think many people are facing same problem on hubpages. My featured hubs turned unfeatured because of traffic and when I tried to edit them and resubmitted, they got unfeatured for quality??I wonder how my high traffic hubs are now unfeatured because of quality. Even I am still writing in the same...

I just spent a lot of time on this hub; I did my research, cited my sources as usual, and published it yesterday with a rating of 70. However, it no longer says it is pending and it is not featured. I was wondering if someone can look it over, and possibly tell me why?...

The hub I published this morning says not featured but has a good score and ads? I'm on my phone so I can't edit it. This is not a low quality hub though.

I just completed my first year on hubpages. Until recently, I haven't had any issues getting my hubs featured. Just a few tweaks coming from Squidoo and all was well, but recently with every hub I edit, I get a lovely e-mail from HQ saying, "Your hub could be featured . ....
