    Do you know that HubPages has started providing icons alongside your Hubs to improve your Hubs?

    Under My Account settings all the Hubs of an author are displayed as Featured in Black, Red and Blue icon. While Black icons are featured hubs finding favor with search engines, Red Icons are shown because the same are not as per quality standards at HP, Blue icon stands for that the hub is not SEO friendly and needs improvement in Headings and Sub Heading. It is really a wonderful feed back for the authors like me. What is your feeling?

    Yes, I noticed it this morning. It is really a good attempt at the part of HP team to categorize our hubs in this way, so that we know which one needs our extra attention.

    Hi wqaindia,

    I have checked my hubs and all are showing black and I don't see any red or blue icons.

    Are you referring to the black icon in the last column to the extreme right, where an author's hubs are shown? Please clarify.

      Yep! You will only see the blue and red icons if that hub is not featured. You're seeing all black because your hubs are fine.

      If you look at the key at the bottom you'll see the red and blue icons and what they mean.

      R & D is going on HP. Now instead of Black, Red or Blue Colors, HP has made the color black Full Black for Featured, Half Black for Not featured due to engagement, Full White Circle for Not featured due to Quality. Black and White is more beautif

    I noticed it this morning and found so useful.  I appreciate the brain behind it.  By giving that color icon, we can easily understand which of our hubs remain non featured and how these are (like lack of quality or lack of engagement) remaining so.  It is wonderful. I am happy as well.

    Well, I'm glad as all my hubs have a black icon. But it is a step forward and will help us understand the standings of our hubs.
