Hubpages and Search Engines

    Has anyone else noticed that their questions and forum posts are ranking in the search engines.  It's not just hubs. Make no mistake, you do get paid for the views on the questions you ask, unless HP has changed something beyond my knowledge.

      Oh, yes, questions and forums do quite well, and one day not too long ago, I noticed just how many views questions produce!

        I have noticed that there are ads at the bottom of the forum pages and have always wondered who gets the views, HP or us? Have you ever heard directly from HP on this?

          Have you checked how old the questions are?   All questions become "no follow" after a period of time, which means Google will ignore them from then on - so although you can earn something from asking questions, it's short-lived. 

          Given the risk that you'll get spammy answers, which are then associated with your sub-domain, and given the short-term nature of the earnings, it's really not worth it.

          You earn nothing at all from answering questions.

          You earn nothing from forum posts, either.
