What is the difference between a hub being published and featured?
My first hub was featured, now I submitted two more, and they are both published, pending being featured. I don't understand the difference between the two.
Featured hub and not featured or being featured or pending hub is a just like public hub and private hubs. If a Hub is featured, people can search and find it on Google, Bing, Yahoo and on other search engines but If a Hub is not featured or pending then it's only visible to hubbers of HubPages, or anyone else you give the link to.
featured hubs means the hub is visible at google and everywhere. If not featured means available at hubpages but not at google.

Right now, while a Hub is pending, it doesn't show ads, it has a "no follow" tag etc. However our followers get notified and they may share the Hub during that time. It would be nice if that...
