Why are we seeing the same old not so good hubs featured on front pages?
Is it that there are so few new hubs published or people getting bored with HP?
Because you have the same people who take turns sharing one another's hubs. I think there should be a rule that an individual can only share a hub one time period.
does it not defeat the purpose on getting outside viewers instead of patting each others backs on HP, don't get me wrong its great to get feed back but if thats all we get is it really worth it?
JThomp42, are they not the more popular and featured hubs? I'm confused by the "share."
No. Not necessarily. Anyone can share their "buddy's" hub.
It's because it tends to be the older hubs that get the most traffic and traffic is one of the main things factored into whether a hub is featured on the main topic pages.
It's always been this way.
should it not be though that new hubs are added there and if a hub is good quality it will be found anyway?
Just to let you know the answer you've chosen is based on nonsense! New hubs have to prove themselves - the algorithm that promotes hubs on topic pages takes many, many elements into consideration.

I just completed my first year on hubpages. Until recently, I haven't had any issues getting my hubs featured. Just a few tweaks coming from Squidoo and all was well, but recently with every hub I edit, I...

You may have noticed some Hubs have become featured. We are continuing to tweak this system so that it has less impact on the best Hubbers. Our hope is to have additional Hubs become featured as we...

For some unspecified reason, HubPages has chosen not to feature what I believe to be one of the bestHubs I have written. After learning that HubPages was not going to feature it without editing, I added a poll to...
