    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
