I want to take an interview of the author of the website, the portal is related to technology.
Do you have a sample set of questions so that i can use it ?
The portal is listed in my signature(I have not asked this question for advertisement)

Thanks in advance.

Why do you want to interview someone if you don't know what to ask that person?

You could ask them about the weather. Everyone has an opinion on the weather.

C'mon... How to interview a website that is in the signature of the potential interviewer? At best, the interviewer is biased, which makes the interview useless. At worst, this whole topic is just SPAM. I am leaning towards the later.

Hijacking makes a topic less meaningful, and is thus appropriate for this forum. :-)

Come on man, don't be lazy. So you're going to interview someone about a website that's about technology. What would be the first obvious question to ask?

"What's your website about?"
"When did you start it?"
"How many visitors do you have per month?"
etc.

Listen to the answers he gives and ask more questions based on what he says. Don't just rattle off a fixed list of questions, recording what he says without listening yourself - that way, it will become a bad interview.

You could ask him when the Apple tablet will be out. Then you can say:
"In other unrelated news, an anonymous 'Apple Insider' informed me the new Apple Tablet, surprisingly being named the iTablet, will be released on October 24th. It will be have 5-point multi-touch, built in 3G (from Verizon in the U.S.), cost $395, sport a 12in screen, and run a full version of Mac OSX."

It would neither matter what the interviewee said, or if he knows anything about Apple at all, but would be as accurate as most 'Apple Insider' blog 'news' reports and drive visitors to your site.
