Quiz as a summary tool for huber

As a tools for writing an high quality article, quiz is better than as interactive tool. You will create the quiz and write the article to explain all the questions you asked so readers must be able to answer. You will have a list of things to explain and each time you feel that a point is not too much cleared for the user, you will make changes accordingly.

If you use it well, your article will be clear, easy to be understand, and clearly formatted as you will want to make a paragraph for each question so reader can read again if they fail in the quiz.

It is also important in video hub, as it is not separated into paragraph, you will ensure that your users watch the video completely. Also, it will help reader to get an idea about your video content.

When you write an article everyone will understand, it will help you to:

  • Gain readership as people will want to read you again
  • More comments where people can get an idea of your article content just by taking the quiz
  • time on site increased
  • traffic from your in article link to other hub as user read natural

Here is by example my quiz for writing this hub. I could remove it after if i did not want to make it public. So, you may use quiz just to get a global idea of the final result of your hub. Enjoy
