    Transferring questions to my sub domain?

    I've not been on HubPages for a few days and I've got a new Q&A button, when I click on it I get an option to transfer my questions to my sub domain. This seems like a good idea as we can earn from our questions, but before I transfer them I was wondering if there is any down side to doing it?

    As far as I can tell, no. Putting them in your subdomain means that they'll have better SEO results, and it will mean you can earn from them as well.

    I suppose the only downside would be if you have asked a ton of low quality questions.  Low quality questions would be similar to low quality hubs, it will bring your pagerank down.  Other than this, switching questions to a sub domain will allow you to earn revenue from them as well as your hubs.

    I really don't see any downside. You can always delete questions or answers that are inappropriate. The upside is a bit plus, with the ability to earn revenue from the questions and answers.

    This is a great additional revenue feature that HubPages is giving us. I already transferred my questions to my subdomain earlier today. And in reviewing the number of hits and answers they had, I decided to delete two of them. The way I see it, we are in complete control. And the traffic reporting for our Q&A is just like what we have with our Hubs.

    I transferred my questions yesterday and I saw a dip in my hubscore.  I only had five questions and three are not related to my groups.  Also, two of my questions only had a couple answers.  I think this may be negatively affecting my results.  I wonder what defines a low quality question, in terms of traffic?
