Questions and Answer Solutions Help Organic Search Engine Visibility
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged – the past few days have been totally devoted to the migration process from my PC to my … PowerBook! – more on that on a separate post.
I’ve had this post in the pipleline for some time about Question and Answer Solutions for a website: people are asking a lot of questions 24/7 all over the world – all kinds of questions, so having a Q&A service on your website is a useful service for your users – both new and old.
They guys at Lumin Creative asked me for some space to introduce their service and I gladly give them the opportunity to talk about their service in this post – there is no under-the-table-stuff going on here, it’s a simple "this is your opportunity to talk about your service on my blog" sort of thing.
A recent Hitwise Report shows that the top five questions and answer systems (Yahoo Answers, AnswerBag, etc) have grown at a rate of over 889% over the last two years, and astounding rate of growth on any scale.
This research shows that having a Questions and Answers system on a website is great collaboration tool generating traffic to your site and offering increased exposure to your products and services.
These systems work as if they were custom made for drawing new traffic, with minimal resources or effort directly from the current website or company who runs it. By allowing users to ask questions specifiic valued added content is generated to meet the needs and expectations of your readrship which is a great benefit and tool for the community: top answers and experts are highlighted and recognized through a point system.
The system is compatibile with search engine indexing criteria, making all Questions and Answers available online, attracting new users thus new organic traffic that is extremely effective.
