Volume Counts

ONE REASON Yahoo! Answers kicked Google out of the Q&A game lies in the sheer volume of users registered on the Y! Answers site. MIT Technology Reviewexamined six Q&A sites, citing Yahoo! Answers as the clear winner. LeeAnn Prescott created a custom category of the six sites mentioned by MIT and found that for the week ending 23 Dec 06, the market share of visits to Yahoo! Answers was 47X greater than the share of visits to its nearest competitor, Answerbag.

As the Boards.ie community already knows, you can get better answers when cranking up the volume of site visitors.
