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?

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic...

I thought that the questions would be adding to the hub, thereby making the hub rank better for certain terms. However, that's not the case from what I see. The questions show on the page but not the answers, so the...
