    I have a hub pending and traffic is rising 2 triangles.  Does this mean it will get featured.

      You probably have a higher chance of being featured if you're getting good traffic, but ultimately it comes down to the quality of the Hub.

        Not so, KS.  Whether or not a pending Hub is Featured is based on other things, traffic has nothing to do with it.

            You might be confusing it with what happens to older Hubs that get the message "Not Featured - traffic".   That only happens when an existing Hub, that's been Featured for some time, fails to get enough traffic over several months.  Then it will be unfeatured for lack of traffic.  At that point, it becomes invisible to Google so it's not likely to get more traffic until you improve it - but just occasionally, you might get enough traffic from other sources that could revive it.

    A Hub is featured or not depending on the review process. It takes about two days normally for me but I have seen some of my Hubs reviewed pretty fast.

    The topics of some of my hubs are related to specific times of year and unlikely to get much traffic when they are unseasonal. Is it best to unpublish them before they are unfeatured and then re-publish at the appropriate time of year?

        Never, ever do that, ever ever!

        Hubs get their traffic from Google.  It takes months to gain a good reputation with Google.  If you unpublish a Hub, Google "forgets" it.  That means it has to build a reputation all over again, from scratch, when you republish it.

        If you want to write a Christmas Hub, write it in June to give it plenty of time to gain traction before the Christmas buying season.  And don't unpublish it after Christmas, let it keep maturing.

          One of my Christmas hubs, published 6 years ago, has not matured and has enough "juice" to get some traffic year round.  I usually see a dozen or so views on most days. 

          It would never have happened had I unpublished it each year.

      If you unpublish them, you cannot prove their original date should they be copied. When you republish, you may not be able to because they will come up as duplicate.

    Seriously? I've been writing online for years and never knew that, and yes I have unpublished articles because they weren't performing well. I assumed the smart approach was to move them around and try to find a site that paid better. Thanks for the advice, especially on the holiday posts!
