i was going through answer section and i found few questions which made me wonder that do people ask just for sake of asking or do they seriously seek answers?...if asking question one of way of getting noticed and so people ask even when they know the answers?
When you post anything on HubPages, your name is a link back to your profile. That's of some value in promoting your Hubs, though not as much as a link on another site would be.
So yes, some people do post questions just for the sake of the link.
Others post because they think all activities on the site earn money - which isn't true, because you only earn money on your Hubs.
I particularly "love" the ones like, "What's your favorite color?"
Some of the questions are actually worse then what's your favorite color
I have wondered with some of the weird ones on unusual topics might be a niche someone found but couldn't write about with authority. I have researched possible niches because of questions in the Q&A area and when I write a hub as an answer it seems to be able to draw traffic without as much back linking SEO stuff. I have thought that it is kinda cool if people find a topic in demand that they can't meet to ask about it, might get a hub or two written about it, learn more and who knows become educated about it
Hmmm - maybe I'll look at questions in a different light now. (Of course, I'm not sure I'd particularly recognize when something may be a niche or when it's just, "Is my ex coming back to me?" (There really are a quite a few Magic 8 Ball type questions on there. )

Do you ask questions just for the sake of asking a question?I've noticed many people do this, and it is quite irritating to see so many questions posted all at once by a certain user(s)..
