Question and answer websites have popped up all over the Internet. These interactive sites are designed to connect individuals and help them get answers to questions. We have compiled a list of some of the more popular Question & Answers websites below:

1. Yahoo! Answers

Yahoo! Answers is probably the largest and most respected Question & Answer site on the web. You can ask questions on any topic, or you can answer questions on any topic. There are no fees to participate. The person asking the question can indicate his choice for the best answer, and the community can rate responses as well. Points and levels are given for answering questions and receiving top ratings. Questions are categorized, making it easy to find questions and answers in your area of expertise. The Q&A database is also searchable, and you can filter the search results so that only open or resolved questions are displayed.

2. Amazon AskVille

Askville, powered by Amazon, is a community of people who ask and answer questions.

    I was surprised that you left off experts-exchange (http://www.experts-exchange.com/) It is a pay site (about $100. per year), but that tends to keep the askers and experts professional.

    Question and answer sites respond to the more conversational way in which users are interacting with the internet. This is also carrying over into the ecommerce world, where customers are bringing their product questions to websites where past shoppers and product experts are standing by to give them insight and help them make good purchases.
