Should I stop editing my posts? The last few days, they keep getting unfeatured!
Even though I have edited my posts so that they have fewer than one ad per 100 words (and some have only one ad per 250 words), they still keep getting un-featured when I edit them. All the ads are related to the article topics. I think I may have to give up and, if they keep getting un-featured, move them to other sites ... which is a major hassle and something I NEVER do, normally. I've been very disappointed with the way my old Squidoo articles, which were very successful at Squidoo, have been treated here at Hubpages. Why did Hubpages buy Squidoo, if they didn't like the content?
Don't give up on editing your article. Only have one amazon add for 500 words. (I do, less amazon capsules the better to get featured). Use only large photos, check out what your hub looks like in preview, cell phone view you will be surprised how it looks with small photos, not very nice.
Hope this helps a little. Keep smiling.
I thank you for asking this question. My hubs don't usually go unfeatured after the edit but they do drop horribly in rank. I too was wondering what the solution was as it is getting quite disheartening to see.
Good questions all Deborah. It is puzzling. Seems like I read somewhere that it was now supposed to be 200 words per Amazon, but some still seem to go unfeatured. I experiment, doing different things, but it may be they just want very few Amazon links. Views are so far down compared to Squidoo. This will be an interesting thread to follow.

Hi,I've got several hubs which have suddenly become un-featured "due to lack of engagement".On the one hand, fair enough, in that they haven't had a lot of traffic, if any, since they were transferred from...

I'm not knocking anybody (or maybe I am) but I have seen several "Hubs" that transferred from Squidoo that are composed of nothing more than very thin content and a whole bunch of merchandising links (and even...

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...
