Is there a point to choosing a best answer?
This recent introduction doesn't seem to do a lot - unless I missed something. Being awarded best answer doesn't give you impressions or money (unless I missed something?) and answers can still continue to be given to the question. Is there any good reason for them other than for search engine traffic to get a straight up answer to their question?
This whole section has just become a poor imitation of Yahoo Answers.
What if the influx of vapid content here is part of what is making this site look less valuable to Google?
Good question! My answers, if I give any at all, are usually dumped by the time the person chooses the "best answer." I don't see the point in choosing the best answer, either. I have a hard enough time finding questions that are interesting and worth putting any time into. Not that I'm seriously looking.
I don't see the point in choosing a best answer, either. I haven't asked very many questions, but for the ones I have asked, I have not chosen any best answers. My questions barely get any views at all, though, so maybe they will be put on idle.

I apologize, but it seems a "Best" answer was chosen on my question when I did not choose it. I hope the HP Team can help me or someone can inform me why that happened! I noticed it via my phone and I knew that I did not choose an answer and I was not going to do so any time...

After asking a question do you usually go back and vote a "best answer" ?Maybe I'm being silly, but I don't like to choose a "best" answer to my HubPages questions. I get good answers from almost everyone and don't want to deter anyone from answering future questions or make...

How to choose best answer?The problem is that I have received so many good answers to the question I posed about Donald Trump & why Republicans seem to ignore his many negatives. I'm wondering why it isn't possible to choose more than one answer as best answer & let the authors of...

Hi, I have been writing here for about a month and am looking for ways to increase traffic. I read somewhere that answering on Yahoo Answers and posting a link to a relevant hub can be a good way to increase traffic. Does this actually work that well? I'd be really interested in hearing people's...
