About time Google also closed down *evil grin*.
Was this expected? no one knows. The idea was quite innovative, but looks like the model of having to pay someone to answer your questions really didn’t work out. Yahoo! Answers is really doing well and maybe Google could have learnt a thing or two. The title used in the official google blog says it all.
The blog says, “Google Answers was a great experiment which provided us with a lot of material for developing future products to serve our users.”
Aha! so if your product doesn’t work, just pass it off as an experiment *strokes his beard in a pensive mood*
In case you are interested, here’s a link for the Best of Google Answers.
“Although we won’t be accepting any new questions, the existing Qs and As are available. We’ll stop accepting new Answers to questions by the end of the year.“
