    Hub has 5 stars for view duration in stats but not featured due to...

    lack of reader engagement? How is that possible? I notice this is the case on a couple of my religious (controversial) hubs. Is this just HPs way of trying to rid my atheist hubs?

    I don't know where you see hubs on stars...as far as featured goes, if its a half-filled circle, usually its unfeatured due to lack of engagement, not traffic.  Just make a couple quick minor edits, publish it and it should go featured again

      In our stats section above our hubs we can see how good engagement is in stars. Mine is almost perfect. People spend a lot of time on these hubs so for them to say engagement is low has to be an error in one spot or another.

      Interesting....Is there any way to add search tags to a hub?

      Not any more. There use to be a way. Now you just have to incorporate them into the hub.

    No the duration of views has nothing to do with not featured due to reader engagement.  That not featured comes from not getting enough traffic to a hub, regardless of how long a reader stays on the hub.  I have a couple that are the same way.  Update or tweak them a bit to be more search friendly and they'll be featured again.

      This all confuses me. These get more views than many of my featured hubs. I'm so tired of tweaking! I guess it's either that or delete though. Thanks.

      peeples...If it makes you feel better..I spend a lot of time tweaking
      1. Because it works and they're featured again..&  2. It's probably a good idea to shine them up now and then. Funny, but each time, I DO find something worth tweaking.  smile

      Also try adding polls or media things of that nature to help readers interact with you and get them commenting etc. that will also help with featured status.
