Amazingly, I'm getting high single-digit traffic daily. I'm starting to contemplate throwing some more questions in there.
I'm actually doing far better than I ever expected and beginning to see some Google Adsense income too - I still have to prune some of the 'bad' questions, but am seeing close to 1000 views a month.
My Q&A traffic is having an organism. Thanks for asking.
My huge portfolio of questions (4) have produced 81 views total since inception nearly a year ago. I don't bother with the Q&A section.
Looking for more responses, so as to see how Q&A is dong here in general. Plus, if anyone wants to toss in any advice, tips, etc...
I deleted all of mine except one. The answers I received were of such very low quality that I did not want my name associated with them. I do not intend to put in any more questions.
Give it another shot! I got the best quality answers possible on the question I posted today.
If some troll comes along, just delete it. Maybe even copy, paste, and flag into the profile.
It isn't a question of trolls, just people posting scrappy, non-researched answers, with bad grammar and spelling to boot. I do not wish to be associated with such content.
As the moderator, you have total control. Use it!
I also have gotten piecemeal answers in the past. I'm totally fine with that. In fact, I like piecemeal answers! I've even solicited them! And will continue to do so. Every contribution helps! And when all those tidbit answers are aggregated together, they really help the visitor. Goggle recognizes and likes that... Do as SimeyC has suggested and as I have done. I think I've had over 100 questions at one point; I'm now at 36.
Looks like QA dead. Note not inquiry, but statement.
I removed all of my questions just over a month ago. My organic Hub traffic seems to be doing better since I did that.
I am in the process of deleting mine.
I'm tired of duplicate content answers and people spamming hubs.
I did have okay traffic, but it plummeted recently. I never got many clicks so it wasn't worth it to play moderator for duplicate content and deal with the "you deleted my answer, didn't you" drama.
I got 6 visitors to my "What Are Vorpals?" question just today. I never would have expected that. It's even made the Hot Questions list. Inquiring minds want to know...
I'm thinking of specializing in demented questions going forward. After all, I have a knack for that sort of thing...
lol melbel, I haven't had the issue of duplicate answers yet the two years I've been here on a different profile, however I try to combat getting duplicate answers by trying to ask unique questions.
You're lucky. About 1 in 4 answers seems to have been copied from another site. It's not just spam accounts doing it, either. Hubbers who've been here a while and should know better are doing it, too. HP put up a "original content answers only" memo thing, but it doesn't seem to have helped much.

As many of you noticed, we've recently been doing some testing with the Q&A feature on articles vs. with their own URLs. As a result of our tests we've developed a new policy.Once approved by a moderator, Questions will have a grace period to gain traffic on their own URL. Questions that gain a...

After reading through the forum and answers I see that some of the questions there seem to be asked just for the sake of asking them, but not to get the answer it self. Are these question asked for the purpose of marketing the hubs/author? Is it better for my hubs to ask...

I have a suggestion. Lately, I've been participating in Yahoo Answers. I try to answer any question I have a thought about, especially those that I have experience with. I have answered several questions that coincidently have hubs about similar topics, and in my answer, I provide the tracking link...

I know this isn't a suggestion for a new feature, I'm suggesting the removal of one, but this seemed the best category for my post and the most likely location for it to be seen by a staff member.Can we all think back to January of 2011 when Hubpages traffic was decimated by the original Panda...

I'm planning an advice hub where somehow or other people will ask advice - the advice will be wacky - I think it would be great if I could get one or two other hubbers to also contribute their advice (on the same questions) and so instead of it just being my wacky advice, it could be two or three...
