can anyone tell me what difference does it make if your article gets featured or not?
does the non-featured article don't get paid?
P.S. Sorry for such a nieve question, I'm new here.
Being featured means that your articles can be found on Google. If unfeatured, they are only available to those you share the link with. Featured articles are automatically on discover.hubpages.
Your first article hasn't made it to discover.hubpages. Therefore, it's not eligible for earnings. It needs a bit of work. Begin it with a capital letter and the title should be in title case.
yourrandombrother, I see your only article is about backpacking, but it's based on the world-wide pandemic.. This is a saturated topic. People are over the pandemic and we're all at the mercy of science.Perhaps you can revise your title to something like "Minimalistic Backpacking During the COVID Pandemic - Safe Practices" and exemplify that.
Improve your grammar, follow the guidelines, and pay attention to the alerts HP gives you at the top right of the page when you're creating your article.
Your third subtopic of losing weight has nothing to do with the title of your article,. Pick a theme and stick with it.
Ok! Thanks for the help. I really wish correcting the article according to the hubpages guideline would not have been difficult. It's too much of a guess work, to find out what's wrong with your article, I really wish they could come up with a check box kind of a thing telling what's wrong with the article and how can we improve it
Thanks for the help guys, it's because of you that I've been able to get my very first article featured.
Thanks for the help, and I really got to learn a lot from you guys ☺️

I saw a dramatic traffic drop today and went to notice that over 100 of my hubs are not featured. While I can understand some of my older ones published over 4 years ago were not that great, some of them were published just months ago and are engaging, have beautiful pictures and very few links....

I have finally published a hub that has been deemed unfeatured. I can only direct my attention to a table I inserted which was long when viewed on the mobile platform.
