I published a hub today before i realised that it was asked in the hub request section of this site is there a way to incorporate the hub with the question.....jimmy
.. which leads me to ask, would there be any real benefit in doing that, if you could?
There is not a way to do that right now, but it is something we'd like to offer.
One worry if we did offer that, is that nefarious users would associate a lot of existing hubs that aren't really related to the request. It would be one more thing that would have to be policed.
Thanks for the reply Paul, I understand about the policing part perhaps the person who made the request could approve or disaprove of the answers to their own requests, that would solve 2 problems in 1, if you are not happy with the answer, and if the answer was nothing to do with your request.....have fun.....jimmy
I think it would be great if the requester could express an opinion about the answer.
Any chance of an answer to my question - what is the benefit of answering a request, other than the fact that it gives you an idea? Do "answer" Hubs do better than regular Hubs?
Some of the request pages get a little bit of search traffic, which presumably trickles down to the hubs that answer those requests. Other than that, the only upside is the satisfaction you might have from answering someone's question.

I know answering requests improves scores but answering our own request does it also improve or on the contrary does it decrease the score(and also does it go against the convention here at hubpages)?I am asking this...

Can you answer your own requests? When you make a request, it immediately brings you to a screen with the prominently featured red button that says "answer this request". It feels like abuse to...

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I...
