We know that Google has been pushing to add Solution to your topics. ie, if somebody asks a question on your website and there is an answer available among many other replies, Google wants the exact answer marked as Solution.
Do you in your near future expect Google to ranks websites, mainly forums and Q&A boards based on the percentage of solved answers ?
I think so, now only i realize as i do some Google search i find Solved tag posts come up first which is really helpful. In the coming days it will surely make the job easier for everyone.
Jason some Google search i find Solved tag posts come up first
See, they are already giving it weightage
Jason which is really helpful.
It certainly is. You don't even have to visit the website. You will get the answer right on the Google Search page
Abhi Yes we will, but not all answers are easily showcased. I dig in Google search for sometime to get the right answer.
Google once said " We want to give people answer they ask the question " . This is exciting and horrify at the same time. Imagine we do a whole day on internet, at work and home. By 8 PM we get an email about things you might like based on the day's activity. I don't know what to call such an experience.
I will say that is scary. Not a compiled list, but things we do online influence our search results a lot. That is not only Google, I see the changes in Facebook, Twitter too.
