What is a blue H, a black H, and a red H?
There seems to be a variety of different colored Hs next to my hubs on the my account section.
Look on the bottom of your account/statistics page, and it shows the meaning of all symbols/letters. The red H is for quality I believe, Black means its being featured, etc.
If you have a black H by your hub it means that it is "featured" and will show up on your home profile page.
If the H is orange then if was determined to not be featured due to a poor quality of content. My very first Hub is not featured and I believe it is because I didn't use multiple text boxes and have no displayed pictures. I've found that if you follow the prompt that wants you to write 700 words and one picture minimum, and have few grammatical errors, then it will most likely be featured.
If there is a Blue H by your hub then according to HubPages it means "This Hub is not Featured because it does not receive sufficient engagement. Try updating the Hub with recent information and descriptive, search-friendly sub headings."
You can find the above information on your "my account" homepage. Hubpages has provided a key to their symbols at the bottom of your list of Hubs.
I could be wrong, but I'm not sure that the public can see your non-featured hubs anymore. However, they still factor them into how many total Hubs you've published.
I love this new system because it insures, more than ever before, that the HubPages community remains strict on their quality standards. We do not want this site overrun with spam and poorly written paragraph long hubs.

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

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.

Published a hub on Oklahoma (please don’t get started on how it might be too generic – I had fun doing it). It became the template for my following hubs on Arizona and New Mexico. The Oklahoma one published just fine. The Arizona and New Mexico ones are now Not Featured due to...

I have been a member of Hubpages for a while but did not understand the true value of it until recently; I began updating old hubs and every one updated so far has ended up featured. I hope to do the 30 in 30 once I finish updating everything. I would love to try it in July since June...

I am being challenged. I have been having a problem getting a new hub to be featured. It has gone through QAP three times already. It is a new day, and I am feeling up to the challenge once again. Rested and refreshed after a good nights sleep, with a hopeful heart. So! Now, the hub will be going...

On a different account, somewhat "experimental" account, one of my Hubs is unfeatured. Generally my inclination was to unpublish it and move it or just delete it. But I kept it and put it in a Hub group. Meaning, if the Hubs before and after it get traffic, possibly the unfeatured one...
