First non-featured hub (after 37 featured hubs)—can anyone tell me why?
I'm 38 hubs in and I've just received my first non-featured hub due to quality. The hub was written with the same general quality I write here, and has even been given a HubScore higher than a few of my other hubs (all featured) but apparently this one didn't cut the mustard.
If anyone more knowledgeable than I knows what I might have done wrong, please let me know. The hub can be found here;

The only change is that I did have an Amazon capsule for a related book which I've removed in case it was considered "spammy".
I'm a nobody, but I'll hazard a guess here. I think what may be the problem is that there are LOTS of articles online about SEO things.
Thanks for replying Wesman. The hub has been featured since I asked this question. It must have been the Amazon capsule. Do Hubpages ding your quality rating for common topics, though?
I'm not at all sure. But I've been told the overly common topics get really low scores. A low score isn't the same as not being 'featured' though. I tend to think only staff really know what they do and don't want.
It'd be good info to make public. I typically just write about whatever takes my fancy and try to make a good post. If common topics get penalised, though, I'll have to be a bit more selective.

If updating a hub that is featured, say your best hub, a Hub-of-the-Day hub, a contest winner, or such, puts it into a no-index state until it's reviewed again, why would one want to ever update it?I have such a hub...
