Do you think that recipe articles have high chances to be featured?
I noticed that majority recipes are featured at hubpages. Do you think that I should publish more recipes instead of general articles in order to have them featured?
Good recipe articles are featured, but all well-written quality articles should be featured. All of my articles are featured and I only have one recipe article. You should write about what you are passionate about and it will be featured if it is well-written and complies with HP standards.
I have approximately 280 articles to my name today, with only about 80 of them being recipes, and every single one of them is featured.
I think all that "featured" really means is that you met all of the qualifications in the box at the top right of your article creation page, and that you created a quality article.
I really don't think it matters much what the topic of any article is about, and certainly don't recommend recipes as a focus unless this is what you happen to be particularly passionate about.
Although I love writing them, my recipes, and I think recipes in general, get a much lower viewing rate than all other topics, as most individuals perusing the internet are not interested in recipes.
I would write about what you really want to write about. When you are interested and passionate in your writing, it really comes through in the material and the feel of the overall article.
However, if you are really interested in what people want to read about, ask the question to your followers on the Hubpages Home page, just like you did this question.
That's how I got started. I hope this helps.
wow! 280 articles are really awesome. You must be an extraordinary writer
I hope so. Thank you for the wonderful compliment! Every single one is featured. So I wouldn't worry about what topic you are writing on, only that you are writing quality articles.
Many of my recipe hubs are featured. I'm not sure how many exactly but if you'd like to know I will happily go and count them for you. Just let me know. As far as your second question goes, I think general articles have a high chance of also being featured. I have featured articles on many different subjects.

It has been quite a few years since I've published any new content, and I noticed that we now have different websites that we can submit content too. How do I go about submitting work to Letterpile.com? Thank you so much for the help,Mike Hazelwood

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,...

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. Grammar is checked, titles tweaked, content is solid as its in the same vein as my other articles. Do you think this could be it?...
