It looks a lot like people are asking rubbish random questions to improve their rating and waste fellow-hubbers time with their whim ! The questions are usually "who is this movie star" or famous person. When I see this I move to the next sensible question. Is there another reason why I see these questions or am I correct; they are just trying to increase their hub score? "if you do not know how to ask the right question you discover nothing"

Hi Availiasvision , I love your answer. I never thought of it that way. Question is asked, some one answers it. Later it appears in Google search. Traffic is driven to the article. All the questioner need do is ask.
People who ask questions can also earn from them, but my own personal experience is that the views are so low as to be not at all worth the effort.
Thanks 98 Susana
These repeat questions for say "who is Elton John" have clear answers all over the net, little potential there. Hub pages prides originality.
The ones I've seen are for pretty obscure people. Also I've been on HP a long time so I think I'm pretty clued up on what HP likes :)
I don't know how "obscure" they are -- many of the ones I've seen have been screamingly obvious, i.e. "Who was Abraham Lincoln?" ... if you don't know who that is then there's no hope for you
Hi All. This topic is now an inspiration for a hub, not a forum. The hub will look a the internet differently, as a fantastic, growing garbage tip (like NYC dump) where both trash and treasure can be found. Entitled, "Can Google Filter the Trash".
