Does asking provocative questions draw people to read your hubs---thus raising your hub score?
Do hubbers mostly ask questions to draw traffic to their hubs and profiles? I think that a "good" question (one that draws answers) is a factor in hubpages algorithm. So is that why there are so many silly questions being asked?
I don't know about that one way or the other--but do know this: I've made it to 100 Hubscore repeatedly, and I do NOT do that.
Possibly - but if so, they're misunderstanding how HP works. You don't make money from your fellow Hubbers - you make money from outside visitors.
Yes---only fellow hubbers will check you out but that improves your score thus making you more apt to be found on google---right?
I believe you are right. Perhaps, many hubbers do mostly ask questions to draw traffic to their hubs and profiles.
Provocative questions will draw viewers. They always want to see a nice devils advocate

Hey Staff,I'm sorry, but this is a bit sad. The inconsistency with moderation and flagging of hubs is getting ridiculous.Please teach your moderators what is actually provocative. It is unacceptable that a picture that...
