Is the hub articles useless if it is not featured
I'm new here and I have read some information about hubpages.
I found that if the hub is not featured, it won't be published to search engines.
And a featured page may also become non-featured page if the hub has no response lately.
Then the visitors is only coming from social network sharing which I think is much less then those coming in from search engines.
What do you think?
I have had a few problems with them not being featured, but editing, adding pictures and other capsules will bring them back to being featured. I have not had one unfeatured for several months now.
I can see where this can help improve quality and keep the quality of hubs high, thus improving the quality of hubpages. I was not crazy about it when it first started, but have seen improvement in the hubs I see. I guess I can deal with it.
If your goal here is to make money, then yes, if a Hub is not featured it's useless.
In general, a Hub can't start earning a decent income until it's getting regular traffic from search engines. Remember, you are earning only $3 or $4 per thousand views, so visits from other Hubbers, or your Facebook friends, just isn't going to be enough!
If a Hub is not featured, search engines will totally ignore it. Without the search engines it can't make enough money to be viable.
The first thing to do is check why it's unFeatured. If it failed the Quality Assessment Process, then it may be worth revising and improving it to see if you can get it to pass. If it's unFeatured for "lack of engagement", that simply means it wasn't getting any traffic from search engines anyway: in that case, it may be better moved to a blog or other revenue-sharing site where it will be given more time to attract a readership.

Maybe more attention to the language will give you a chance at being featured also...

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'm in the process of migrating my content from my blog to HubPages and just transferred an article titled "Top 50 Men's Grooming Blogs for 2014." I just switched this article to HubPages a few moments ago (using a 301 redirect). I'm already on the first page of google for the key term...

I am so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the circle? I removed 1 of the 2 Zazzle links and another to a blog which may have been...

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.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

I have a hub that went unfeatured several days back. It was my second hub, and it really was in dire need of rewriting. After doing an extensive revision, I sent it out to the QAP. Then I checked the stats to see how many views it has gotten to date. I was surprised to see that a...
