Ask a question. Set your price. Get your answer. That is what Google Answers is all about. I was surprised to read that Google Answers is Shutting Down. They are not accepting any new questions and will stop accepting new Answers to questions by the end of the year.
“Google Answers was a great experiment which provided us with a lot of material for developing future products to serve our users. We’ll continue to look for new ways to improve the search experience and to connect people to the information they want.”
Though there are several knowledge groups, niche forums and ask an expert sites online, Google Answers team had over 500 carefully screened researchers (experts on every subject) who answer your question for as little as $2.50 and usually within 24 hours. The answers were usually well researched with links to find the answer you were looking for. Since you paid for the answers, your satisfaction was completely guaranteed. These Frequently Asked Questions will tell you all about the service.
