If an article has been demoted to not featured quality, can we still earn from traffic due to the ad
I saw now that some of my articles are demoted to not enough traffic, so I have been marketing them, and some I've updated. Now I saw that that one post I edited was demoted a day later for not haven featured quality!
Can we still earn from traffic due to the adds that are still appearing in the post? If not why not remove the adds as well, so I can delete that post and publish it on my blog.
Yes you can. You can market the article through social media and still garner views and ad impressions.
Nadine, you can opt to show your unfeatured articles on your profile page. I had a bunch that were unfeatured due to lack of activity. I went into My Account and changed the settings to show the titles for all my articles. At least that way you can gain some traffic and HP pennies.
I tried to find the settings you mentioned: show the titles for all my articles. I have been playing around and i do see the 125 number of articles, and my setting is no published. does that mean they are all still showing?
Nadine, it's in My Profile, not My Account. Scroll down to the bottom and click No for the option to show only featured articles.
You can feature some of your articles in your spotlight hubs also. I assume you already know this fact. But, if you think some valuable article has been defeatured due to traffic, you can put that article in the spot-lighted section (total six hubs are allowed to be spotlighted). And, for others, you can do it as suggested by Shauna.
Putting a hub in the spotlight section may attract more traffic than viewers finding it gruesome to scroll down to look for their articles.

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the time of year, holidays, seasons, and current events to name a few. If left alone,...

When a article is posted in Hubpages, it initially goes to Hubpages. Then, it will undergo QAP and based on the result may become Featured. Then, these featured articles goes to Niche when an editor sees potential in it. The article staying in Hubpages will not get much traffic because of googles...

Awhile back the team started unfeaturing articles due to lack of traffic. Many here think this is a bad idea, and I agree. Doing this upsets many writers and has nothing to do with quality or how Google views our work...except for the fact that leaving low or no traffic articles online...

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'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

Lately, I've been checking the feed. I've flagged a couple of articles related to spamming one's own business. After looking more closely, I've also noticed published articles (not even articles) that most would consider extremely sub-standard. I'll be the first to admit that I'm...
