Why do you answer questions on HubPages?
Is it to get rated up on your answer?
Is it to gain exposure and you hope to get more fans(followers)?
Is it because you genuinely like answering others' questions?
Some other reason?
The interesting question – ‘Why do you answers questions in hub pages?” - is pointing to the integrity of the person. Certainly it would depend upon the interest and the mode of nature and character of the individuals. For me I am genuinely answering the question for which I am benefited immensely which I am unable to express only by writing because feeling and satisfaction can not be measured by the writing of a pen but it does not mean that I am in disguise of my mind is not scrabbling for rate-up, exposure and more fans which is a natural instinct of human beings and I can not be an exception or who ever he or she may be.
You answered your own questions. Newbies here in Hubpages asked many questions so we will support them. Others are for fun.
First, I genuinely like answering others' questions if I know the answer.
Second, to see what people are thinking nowadays.
Third, to get ideas !
I love questions.
It's how so many good and funny things begin.
Like that old guy on 60 minutes. You know. The one with the whiney voice who always says, "You know what I don't understaaand?" -That guy.
Let's look at YOUR question, Jeffrey. (...and tuck in your shirt. JK, lol.)
(Ooops! Did your eyebrows just move?....Please don't be offended by my little literary device. It's just me... interjecting another character into the discussion. (like my Mother-in-law) It's a love/hate thing for most folks. Either you get it or you're outta here... sorry, dude.)
OK. Back to the future. Your question fascinates me.
You offer 5 possible answers.
Sup widdat mun? I gotta keep it real. Make my OWN rules. It's like the Man; talkin' smack, puttin' me down.
Not really, but you got me goin with the way you phrased it.
The first three possible answers..I'm some cold-hearted, calculating killer, stalking my next on-line victim.
The middle one: that's me. warm, kind, gentle. I take little old ladies across the street because THEY want to go.
And the last...smells just a little...of paranoia. JK. But... conspiracies happen...especially on-line, man.
Anyway. Thanks for asking.
P.S. Stop by. I'm open all night.
I believe it increases exposure and maybe does something with the Karma rating. If I ever find a question I can actually answer I'll let you know.
what will be the intention behind asking a question? its simple to know about something that we dont know......here in hubpages, like you said all the answers that is to gain exposure and you hope to get more fans(followers),genuinely like answering others' questions and Some other reasons may be...whatever may be the reason, but there will be one intention behind it.....my intention of answering is to share my ideas, knowledge to others who are in trouble with something.....thats why they are asking questions to others who can help him....similar way you want to know the intention of answering of others query, thats what people here are trying to say here......hope you got it! heehee
I don't answer questions very often because I don't find very many questions intriguing enough to warrant the time and effort.
I like answering questions for many reasons, sometimes I can see what people's opinions are on certain things...
Its considered being active in hubpages..which is good..
Answers should be answered to ones best of there ability. If they have no idea what the answer is, then they should not reply...
A very good question to ask, because I see from the varied answers, it just proves the point that there are as many answers as there are people.
I like to have a go, anyway and talk back, I guess, to just join in and see what happens.
I often don't have very informative answers like some people, but I guess, I like to think I can join in.
A very good question, though, I like it.
I give the answer because i know the answer and want to know the better answer i have given till now...

What motivates you to answer questions on HubPages?
by Poon Poi Ming 5 years ago
Hi, I wonder why I am suddenly banned from answering questions. Is the ban permanent or temporary? I have written to the HubPages Team but I thought that I may be able to get a faster response here. Is there a guideline on how to answer questions? Honestly, I really don't know which rule I have...

How many questions have you answered on HubPages and do you answer questions?
by Billie Kelpin 3 years ago
So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I asked a question about recipes and received lots of great replies. How do I make a...

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...
