  • Yahoo! Answers Could Be So Much Better

    Posted on June 11th, 2010 phpguru No comments

    I’ve managed to find several Yahoo! Answers pages lately that have ridiculous answers and are locked out of having better ones added.

    I recently submitted this feedback:

    The current policy of 4 days gives barely enough time to be indexed by other Search Engines (for instance, Google) and by then I can’t provide better answers. Why not let Questions be open to Answers until 15 days past the last answer (that is, until the topic has had no new answers posted for awhile) instead. What harm would that do but only help you get better free content at no cost.

    Duh. Fail.
