I see in "hub questions", Who is........?" By the same hubber, what's going on?
It looks a lot like people are asking rubbish random questions to improve their rating and waste fellow-hubbers time with their whim ! The questions are usually "who is this movie star" or famous person. When I see this I move to the next sensible question.
Is there another reason why I see these questions or am I correct; they are just trying to increase their hub score?
"if you do not know how to ask the right question you discover nothing"
The questions aren't meant to be to just entertain the asker, but to come up in a search so that those in the future will find the answer to their question.
Hi Availiasvision , I love your answer. I never thought of it that way. Question is asked, some one answers it. Later it appears in Google search. Traffic is driven to the article. All the questioner need do is ask.
People who ask questions can also earn from them, but my own personal experience is that the views are so low as to be not at all worth the effort.
The question and answers section is supposed to inspire the writing of new hubs. The "Who is...." questions are actually pointing to a potentially very good untapped niche that someone would benefit from picking up.
Here is more info about the Q/A section and its purpose: http://hubpages.com/faq/#questions

These repeat questions for say "who is Elton John" have clear answers all over the net, little potential there. Hub pages prides originality.
The ones I've seen are for pretty obscure people. Also I've been on HP a long time so I think I'm pretty clued up on what HP likes
I don't know how "obscure" they are -- many of the ones I've seen have been screamingly obvious, i.e. "Who was Abraham Lincoln?" ... if you don't know who that is then there's no hope for you
Hi All. This topic is now an inspiration for a hub, not a forum. The hub will look a the internet differently, as a fantastic, growing garbage tip (like NYC dump) where both trash and treasure can be found. Entitled, "Can Google Filter the Trash".
Oooh yeah...those are freaking irritating! Haha. I once responded to one of them by asking "do you seriously not know who this person is, or are you just asking for the hell of it?"... I was ignored. Ha!

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

I no longer see the option to "bookmark this hub." What's going on?Lately I've noticed that the option to bookmark hubs no longer appears in the right-hand column for me. What's going on, and how do I bookmark these hubs?

I am starting to wonder about a lot of the questions that are asked. I'm talking about the ones that are listed in the Answers area.They appear to be from people who have new accounts for the purpose of asking questions.I personally do not mind, as most of those questions are easy to...
