Question about featured hubs
So I've been working on my evergreen hubs and shooting for the featured hubs status but I also notice the traffic goes up & down. Once it's a featured hub will it ever lose that status?
Yes, it can. I have a few that go back and forth between "featured" and "not featured for engagement." Then there are a couple that aren't featured for quality that I have updated, they go to "featured" for a while, and then return to not featured for quality. I'm not really sure what makes the decision for each "not featured" designation, but designations are definitely dynamic. Traffic does seem to be able to drop for quite a while before it changes for lack of engagement.
If a Hub doesn't get traffic from Google, it will eventually become unfeatured. Before Simon left HubPages' employment, she posted on the Forum that a Hub only needs a few visits sent from Google every month to remain featured. Just a month ago, HP changed the formula to allow Hubs to remain featured if the Hubber's Hubber Score was high (but the announcement didn't specify an exact number for the Hubber Score).
If a Hub goes unfeatured, you can update it and try again.

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my lowest scoring hubs either..it is right across the board. Is anyone else...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

I'm not asking about why hubs get featured or un-featured. I kind of know that.The issue is: I just did a category search in my hubs, and found that, out of 292 published hubs, 149 are unfeatured due to low traffic! That's a lot! Over half my articles! I don't have the time...

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...

How many views, roughly, are needed to keep a hub from being unfeatured?I've noticed a lot of people complaining about hubs being unfeatured for lack of engagement.I've noticed traffic declining on some of my hubs, and I was wondering if anyone knows at what point I'd have to worry about being...

It appears that there has been a recent change on my profile page. Underneath the number of published hubs, there is a number of featured hubs. I do not want this to be shown. My ratio of featured hubs is less than 50% of the number of published hubs. My understanding of why...
