Question about featured hubs

    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.
