How can we tell if an article is removed from being seen by the search engines and is there a way for that article to be re-featured after it is edited.
Our old articles were moved over from Squidoo so some are quite aged but I notice many no longer receive traffic so I suspect some may have been demoted here.
Just wondering if it is worth doing an update on them.
My understanding is that any hub with the designation of NOT FEATURED (either for quality or for traffic) is not visible to Google. Those are the ones with the white circle or the half black/half white circle.
I keep them visible on my profile and pin them to Pinterest but don't think that traffic is factored into the traffic algorithm. Editing one gives it a chance to get featured and come to Google's attention again.
My problem here is that former Squidoo lenses require pretty savage revision to fit Hubpages' bias against sales and Amazon. I've removed some to sites like Webnuggetz which is more friendly to some topics.
I suggest you revise one and see what happens. The editors should give you feedback on how it can be featured. You can also post a link of your article on the forum and ask fellow writers to review it. Good luck.
