We like to note important milestones here on HubPages, like our billionth Hub view and our millionth Hub. Milestones help remind us that we’ve come a long way as a large online writing community. One feature, our Answers section, has paired askers with answerers for the last few years, and we’ve hit an important milestone with respect to it recently: we’ve had 100,000 Questions published.
There are a few things worth noting about HubPages Questions:
- About a year and a half ago, we saw an inflection point which put the number of new Questions on a new trajectory. That new rate has sustained since.
- About 1/6 of Questions get moderated.
- Each Question yields an average of 2.5 Answers and Hubs.
- Lots of great Hubs are inspired by Questions, including Lisa HW’s How to Get Over an Abusive Relationship and Marye Audet’s How to Install Landscape Pavers. Many Hubs written in response to a Question have been, like these, great for traffic for those Hubbers who published them.
We hope 100,000 Questions is just one of many impressive milestones for the Answers section!
