    HP has an underused Q&A section - why not begin promoting this on the front page by having a 'Queston of the Day' section. It can be used to stimulate new hubs......

      Hi Simon!  We recently retired the Weekly Topic Inspiration because it wasn't used very much and it took resources to manage it.  I have a feeling that the Question of the Day would be similar, but I'll discuss it at our community meeting on Thursday.  I think it is a good idea!  smile

    I think that would be a cool idea! I have been using the Q&A more and more over the past few days myself.

    yeah, it would be nice to have question of the day at HP. Yahoo has this and many people are keen in blasting their unique questions.

    In Anticipation....
    I have invested the sum of my life savings into buying up the entire stock of 'Question Marks' available at the Bumbletown - NZ mayor trading fair today!!  cool
    Phew.... thanks for the heads up Simon....
    I got such a good deal on over 25,000 Questionable Marks too! 
    Looks like someone tried to smudge out the 'able' part, trying to be greedy...
    but hey, I don't mind because the real dirty questions always get the most interesting answers!  tongue  smile

    Hi SimeyC,

    It's not much different than having it appear on your profile when you click 'my account'. I always see a question there, and if I'm interested I'll click it. For some reason I actually thought the Question that appeared there was a question of the day.

      I;m more interested in it being featured like HOTD for outside visitors...

        You mean as an advertisement? Sure, if we can get paid for doing it! We are the ones asking and answering. But I don't think we get a cut anymore.

          I believe that we get a share of impressions on questions we ask - not sure about the answers. I know I see some clicks on my adsense due to questions...

            I never get impressions directly on Ad Sense, even though I see my hubpages on their. I thought hub pages earnings program was getting impressions from Ad sense. I am still so lost on how these earnings work.

              If you are in HP Ads, then all revenue is recorded in HP and nothing goes through Adsense. However, the Ads on Q&A are Google Adsense only - they currently do not offer HP Ads for Q&A.

          HP could put their floating related links on the QOTD to help pay for it. We don't get a penny of that.
