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 question for this particular request and also for a couple of other requests I...

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 make a request and answer it yourself, so I'm not doing it. But I feel like...

Now why would someone make a request and then answer it themselves? Oh, just read it...to write some spam of course

Sometimes I stumble upon a HubPages request that could be answered by a Hub I've already written... but of course I couldn't submit another such Hub. There should be a way to use a Hub already made in order to answer a request.

I am venturing out into the forums on a rare occasion to personally ask a question I haven't seen anyone from HP answer to anyone's satisfaction to this point. I've just noticed a hubber which only joined around 14 hours ago who had a hub published only 30 minutes or so ago. See it for...
