Is there any benefit to using the answers section to get a feel for what people want to read about?
For example, would it wise to assume that if people are engaged in a conversation about your question, that you could expect traffic for a hub?
I don't really think so. It might be an indication of what's popular on HP, but that doesn't seem to match up with what's popular in general.
I agree with Sherry, but at the same time I find that sometimes I get an idea for a hub by reading what people have to say.
I don't rely on the answers section to make a list of topics I think people will want to read, but sometimes it jogs something in my brain and leads to an idea for something similar. For example, I've seen a few medical type questions and it gave me the idea to write my hub about cerebral aneurisms even though aneurisms weren't any part of any of the questions.

I've seen answers and mostly were really the best possible answer to that particular question. The answer actually makes others redundant or of lesser value.So, why do these answers get a vote down?

Some hubbers are taking the mick with it. It's spamming. It's not allowed in the forums. If you want attention promote yourself according to good manners. Not by over spamming in the questions section.
