Some of my hubs turning from featured to non- featured. What to do?
I have some featured hubs, but recently couple of hubs are started getting non-featured (traffic). What should I do? Should promoting my hubs will make them featured or do I need to edit my hubs?
When that happens to me, I give the non-featured Hub a quick re-edit (there's almost always stuff that needs to be tweaked/updated) then I share it out again via my usual channels... this is usually enough of a kick in the butt to get it re-featured.
When you get hubs that are featured then turned non-featured try and update them. Add more information for your hub or rewrite it with more content then it will be featured again. Just update them really. You don't have to delete them, see how you can improve them then they will be featured again.
I agree fully with lies & Freddy.......Go to "edit" and take a close look at your hub. You may wish to add to the word count with some interesting info which applies to the topic. Check spelling, sentence structure and accuracy (an update may be in order)
Add a poll and/or a video if not already included. Check it over carefully and re-publish. I can assure you that this has always taken care of the matter for me and my hubs. Good luck.
I didn't know this could happen, so yes, re-doing it or adding stuff like video or poll and more pics should help.

There are three or four comments(one is at 24 hours so it may not count.) How could I have 0 page views if people are reading it and even stopping to comment?

Hi its Louise again, I was wondering if anyone knew how to edit your hubs so that they can be featured and how often you edit them. I am trying to make blogging into a part time job or full time job but don't know how to get paid doing so and I am a horrible editor of my own stuff. ...

This week we will begin assessing older Hubs that haven't yet gone through the Quality Assessment Process. Instead of only holding newly-published Hubs to the heightened quality bar introduced in March, ALL published Hubs will need to meet minimum quality requirements in order to remain or become...

Does anyone else feel like they don't have much incentive to edit non-featured hubs (or publish new ones) due to the QAP? My list of non-featured hubs has gradually been growing. I know I can edit them to get them re-considered, but it really doesn't seem worth my while to do it,...

Do you ever go back and edit your old hubs? Why or why not?
