My featured Hubs keep changing from day to day, anyone else seeing this?

    My featured Hubs keep changing from day to day, anyone else seeing this?

    Some day's I have more than fifteen and other days it's below.  Why are they constantly being changed?   I haven't edited or made any changes to them either.  It seems the same ones go from featured to not featured!  Bizarre!

    Sounds a bit strange but then again this new QAP has caused some other weird things to happen with regards to featured hubs. If you go to the QAP Hubpages section I'm sure you'll find an answer or two. Perhaps these are hubs that don't quite hit the mark?
    In the meantime just keep writing high quality hubs, that way all of them should eventually become featured and stay that way hopefully.

      Chef, that's the strange part, they DID hit the mark, and then all of a sudden DON'T.

    Mine are all steady, so I cannot figure out why yours are not.  I would write to the team and ask them about this because there may be a computer glitch.

      Sounds familiar!  I have had featured hubs with high scores and the most views go from featured to not featured overnight, even though they are still gathering viewers.  I don't understand it.  It makes you wonder if being featured is a real goal!

    I have two hubs that flick every few days between being featured and unfeatured due to engagement. This must be an automated process based on its traffic rather than the more human based quality process. I am currently updating and in some cases re-writing all of my hubs so I hope that the improvements I am making will ensure that all my hubs remain featured in the long run.

      Thanks, I expect it to take quite a long time, but I will be in a really good place when I get there!

    My best article was 91 hubscore then it dropped to 82. Funny thing is the moderate article went up instead. I never expected such big changes in the featured hubs ranking. They weren't consistent at all.

      I'm having some of the same issues!  I guess where missing something!  Not sure how this works!

    All of my hubs are featured. 

    Now, if you talking about on your profile page, where we can highlight hubs, because one time, I changed my hubs to highlight on my profile page, and saved the changes, but then they kept changing to others hub, but that only happened for about a day, so must have been a glitch or something.

      no, on my account page,,,I had a few hubs that where at one time featured, then they became un-featured.  Sometimes the same hub goes back and forth between being featured and then not, I have made NO changes on my page or to my hubs!  Weird!

    Same thing is happening to me. As someone said, it may be a robot thing, or the reviewers are running out of unchecked hubs.
