Google Still Loves Yahoo Answers

Filed in Social Media by Matt McGee on September 7, 2008 3 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve had reason to go looking for instances of pages from Yahoo Answers appearing in the SERPs, but I found a couple examples this weekend. See, we have a new puppy here at Casa McGee, and it’s been … oh … I think about 30 years since I’ve owned a dog. So, I’m a little rusty on what it’s like to be a dog owner.

Here are the two Yahoo Answers pages I found ranking very highly in Google: (try not to laugh at the second one)

Neither of the pages from Yahoo Answers that you see ranking so well on Google ranks for the same questions on Yahoo and MSN Live search. That continues a trend I noticed back in the spring while I was researching for my SMX Social presentation on Yahoo Answers. The domain ranks much more often in Google than in the other engines.

Your turn: Have you seen Yahoo Answers appearing in the SERPs lately? Share the search query in the comments.

    i think your serp have a lot of relation with question queries. Like “how much” or “do” at the start of a phrase, this is more likely to end in answer sites.

    I have to comment on my own blog post, because I just found Yahoo Answers at #1 and #2 on Google for “least expensive place to live”:

    Just putting this here for own records. 🙂
