In the learning center, it states that 'The Answers section is a place where Hubbers can ask Questions and receive revenue from 60% of the impressions for that page'. Is this information current and up-to-date?
The ad revenue goes to the person who asks the question, not to the people who answer.
In the beginning, the money was from clicking on ads from Adsense. Now it sounds like it comes from impressions from HP ads. I cannot find an answer that is definitive. Do you know? I am disappointed that people still ask so many questions that belong in forum. The questions go on webpages, and I am sure the public does not care about some of these questions and answers. I wish this issue could be clarified, but I know it is spelled out already by staff. A lot of errors come from newer hubbers who are not tuned in to all the rules yet.
It looks like a few others have provided the correct answer, but I just wanted to chime in and confirm that the person asking a Question does earn 60% of impressions on Questions just like on Hubs.
That is good to know as I thought I had read somewhere that the importance of asking questions had been reduced somewhat, in relation to what, I cannot remember!
The reality is that it's much harder to earn from Q&A than it is from Hubs because articles are more likely to show up in searches, but if you ask a question that a lot of people are wondering about and that isn't answered well elsewhere online, it's still possible.
Thank you, I wish I could remember where I read it, but I thought I read somewhere here that questions no longer play much of a role in income!
That explains why there are some folks that have lots of questions, or forum conversation starters, even if they sometimes make no sense.
It took me two and more years to discover that but somewhere there is a little doubt in my mind that that info I read may not still be current.
Forum threads don't make money for Hubbers, only for HP.
Well I'll be darned! I never knew that. After four years I'm still learning. Thanks Sally!
I notice that a question has some effect on one's average hub score, not individual hub scores but the average score. Now there is something to ponder.
That is interesting and good to know, thank you.

When I look at the questions section of hubpages I see pages and pages of silly questions. A lot of the time, when I click on "unanswered" or "latest" I see that the same person has asked ten or so questions in a row. I suspect that in most cases this is because of the fact that...

Some hubbers are taking the mick with it. It's spamming. It's not allowed in the forums. If you want attention promote yourself according to good manners. Not by over spamming in the questions section.

So, are you just answering/asking questions to get an accolade? I am.

When asking questions on HubPages, do you post "thanks" or replies to people"s answers?With the changes to the Q&A section of HubPages, I was wondering what the question etiquette is.

Do some people ask questions on HP just for the sake of asking questions ?I always wondered after reading through few of the questions asked that do the hubbies just post a question for the sake of posting one ? Or they really need a useful answer to it ? What do you think ?
