Why do people post so many pointless questions a day?
I look through questions to see if there is anyone I can help, or any useful topic... And certain Hubbers post ridiculous amounts of pointless questions... Some are rephrased, but essentially the same question... I ask questions that I want to know the answers to, not just for stats... Are these Hubbers trying to direct traffic to their pages, or trying to get better accolades, or just trying to be irritating to those genuinely looking for information? Or is it all 3....
I believe they are trying to up their hub karma score. I don't think it helps much.
Now the Questions are hosted under the user's subdomain. That means the hubbers can earn from ad revenue from those questions posted by him/her. So obviously; more questions, more views and more income
I wouldn't say the questions are pointless. I mean just as you said you post questions that you want answers to. Well, I am sure they are doing the same. And remember you can't please everyone. They may be doing it to boost their score and their income, but so what. Just keep it moving and don't worry about things you can't control.
I agree with you about the silliness and repetitive nature of some questions. I too refuse to look at a poster's profile if I see they have asked a string of nonsensical questions. To me, it shows someone is just wasting my time and I skip right over them. Perhaps some ask "pointless" questions in the hope that other hubbers will follow them or read some of their work. However, I think that approach will backfire. When asking a question, it is almost like interviewing for a job. You want to come off as an articulate, well versed person, yet one who has a curiosity about something that can't easily pop up on a Google search.

Why do we post questions on Hubpages?Are we truly interested in the answers or are we more intent on raising our HUBNESS?
