Why are people asking questions with the same keyword in each one?
Just on the page I am viewing, the latest questions, I see maybe twenty questions with the same keyword. They are all from only three or four users (or maybe just one with different user names) and all asked within a few minutes of each other. Is this some sort of trick or abuse of the Hubpages question section? I see this all the time. What do they hope to gain from this tactic?
I believe this is similar to the question I posted about what I have been seeing in forum spam posts. If you check the hubber profile, does it say they just joined Hubpages anywhere from 5 minutes to 24 hours before posting?
This is my pet peeve for this month, the constant barrage of spam being posted in forums, using keywords to grab attention and questions in title section that they know will make people click to read it. I'm too old for the "made you look" kid crap, so if this keeps up, I may curtail my time here in the forums.
I believe that people do this in order to direct more traffic toward their accounts. I've yet to come up with a better reason, but many of them don't have hubs on their accounts, so it's hard to know. When I ask questions, I ask them in the hopes of some clicks (which generate revenue) and to get some traffic back to my hubs.
I have no idea why some people do that. When I'm looking through the questions, I tend to ignore the ones which are posted, one after another, by the same person. If answer any at all, I choose one.
I did find a little 'report' button in the top right of the full question page. I reported the string of questions yesterday and today and they were gone in no time. Good work hubpages admin! Maybe we should all step up and report this spam.

When asking questions on HubPages, do you post "thanks" or replies to people"s answers?With the changes to the Q&A section of HubPages, I was wondering what the question etiquette is.

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.

Do you come up with a question a day?

In the learning center, it states that 'The Answers section is a place where Hubbers can ask Questions and receive revenue from 60% of the impressions for that page'. Is this information current and up-to-date?

Why do prefer answering questions to asking questions?If the other way around then why do prefer that?
