What Makes One Hub "Featured" and Another Not?
Every article I've written so far has gotten the little black "featured" icon. Just recently a few of the articles I've written have been published but not received the featured picture next to them. Does anyone know why?
This is a question everybody would like to have answered, but the standard response is that your hub does not meet the quality standards set up by HP.
Sometimes the problem can be something as simple as grammar and spelling, other times it might be that your article goes off topic.
Lately, I've been having similar issues, so I just keep working on different aspects of the article until I get the right mix. This is very frustrating because we are never sure about what we've done wrong, but it's just how things go here at HP!
Hello, being a new hubber I have had some issues also like you. I keep on reading thier policies on how they assessed our hub and read other succesfull hubbers. I review all my unfeatured hubs and I have noticed few errors which is grammar, quality and pictures. Yesterday, One of my new hub wasn't featured then I've tried to change the picture it turns into featured, so weird just because of picture. Anyways Kudos to you WanNess!
Thanks! I just assumed that Featured meant that it was published until just recently when a few of my articles were published but not Featured. lol Does being featured get you anything different or do anything special for you?
Yes absolutely! if you notice to search your hubs being featured on the hubpages page its thier on the main page posted. I mean your hub is visible and by the word featured its on the top list page of hub.
Your welcome, Happy that I have help you in my own simply way:) You have GREAT HUB anyways. Kudos!

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