Questions Moving to Subdomains

A few months ago, Simone announced that you’ve had the option to migrate Questions you’ve asked to your subdomain. At the time of the announcement, you could opt for an irreversible move, but the migration was optional. Now, most likely this coming Wednesday, we will complete the migration with all yet-unmoved Questions transferred to askers’ subdomains.

What does this mean? Questions you’ve asked will reside on ¬†your subdomain, and the ads placed on Question pages will have their impressions shared with you just like your Hubs’ ads are. It’s a great opportunity to get others to answer your most pressing questions, like what causes the bumpy ridges in fingernails?

(The final migration will occur around Wednesday, but if you’d like to move your Questions even earlier, please visit¬†My Account > Q&A > Question Statistics)

Milestone: 100,000 questions asked on HubPages

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!
