How can a Hub go from "featured" to "Not featured due to quality?
I have 4 Hubs that are over two years old. These are "evergreen" hubs, and they've always been "featured". I deleted quite a few hubs, and suddenly these same hubs that are over 2 years old are now "Not featured due to quality."
I think that as time goes on and people come less and less to a certain hub page, it gets unfeatured after a while.
yes, when less people visit your hubs, no traffic to meet the min views, it will go unfeatured
Hi Kathy.....Think of your hubs like they are children. When you first bring them home, they are the absolute center of attention. Everyone makes a fuss and wants to hold him/her. A brand new beautiful baby. A miracle. Then as time marches on......well, you know the rest of the story.
I would like to assure you, if you go in and give it a bath, shampoo & put a cute outfit on it........maybe teach it how to be "sweet" or something......in a few hours, that baby will be featured again.
I've never had this fail.....Good Luck! & "Have a wonderful New Year." Peace, Paula
They became not featured due to "quality", not lack of engagement.
If I'm not mistaken. It's been said that featured hubs can eventually become Unfeatured due to Quality for a few reasons. One I believe was mentioned was out-dated or changed facts. Am I wrong? I'm sure I read this at one point.
These aren't out of date. They are all herbal healing hubs, and are evergreen material. Personally, I think it's because I deleted 110 hubs. Before that, all my hubs were featured.
was it due to quality? or lack of engagement? I know lack of engagement happens periodically and usually a few quick tweaks will get it featured again without much fuss.
If they are marked due to quality, then I would see maybe if you have more than the allowed number of links to products or your own website or something? It could be the filter just now picked it up and unfeatured them.
I've read your hubs in the past and enjoyed them and found them informative, so I am quite confident it isn't grammar/spelling all of that.
Perhaps a different editor on the Hub Pages team is monitoring the hubs.
As Christin says, a few tweaks will often do the trick to get them featured again.
Wishing you every success in 2015!

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

I am so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the circle? I removed 1 of the 2 Zazzle links and another to a blog which may have been...

I just logged into my account and noticed that I have close to 30 hubs that are unfeatured due to engagement? Why did this happen all of a sudden? Is there anything I can do to make them featured again?

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...

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...

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...
