Google Answers Closes
Apparently, Google didn't have all the answers after all. Google Answers, the service where individuals would ask questions that required more analysis than merely scanning search results to get an answer is coming to an end this week.
Yahoo has a similar service called, oddly enough, Yahoo Answers, that towers above the Google service. Why is that? Probably because Google charged between $2 and $200 for a result from a panel of 800 while Yahoo offered answers for free.
The result is not unlike Microsoft giving away Internet Explorer which seemed to kill Netscape's business model. Some will point to the social aspect of Yahoo's service, millions of people contributing their expertise to each other as the basis for success. However, nothing beats free, and that was Yahoo's angle. As an act of shameless professional promotion, nothing beats a librarian.
