    I wrote 3 articles and published them. But 2 are showing as draft (status), What does it mean? The third one is showing as published in status (What does it mean?)

    Moreover in my profile only 1 article is mentioned why not 3.

    If anyone can reply then I will be thankful

      Hi there,

      It means that one of your articles is featured and two are still being processed. Sometimes it can take a couple of days.

      Your global warming article is in the wrong category. You have it in Life Sciences/Endangered Species. It should be in Education and Science/Geography, Nature & Weather/Environmental Protection

          The views are very likely your own. Every time you open the article for editing, it's registered as a view.

      Sounds to me like two of your articles failed to publish, try publishing them again and make sure to hit the publish button.

      The one that says published means it is published, and is most likely going through the QAP, or the quality assessment process which will see it featured in search engines and elsewhere on HubPages.

      I think Kyler is right. It sounds like you didn’t click the “Publish” button for two of your articles. The “Draft” status in my account appears for articles that I’m still creating and haven’t published. Once I hit the “Publish” button, the status column says “Published” for that article, even when the article hasn’t gone through the Quality Assessment Process, or the QAP.

      “Published” means the article is visible to people in the HubPages feed and to people who know the web address for the article. The article won’t be indexed by search engines until it has passed the Quality Assessment Process. Once it has passed the QAP, the article is said to be featured.

      Theraggededge has raised a good point about the article being in the wrong category. You should consider editing it to change the category.
