On 'Web Answers' why are answers hardly ever awarded?
I am referring to webanswers.com. I've noticed that questions are opened for over a year in some cases. Is it because the question poster will get a higher earning if they don't award an answer?
I think that some of the questions may be posted by casual visitors, who may find their answer elsewhere and not bother responding to the notification.
I think users in webanswers.com are not serious about giving answers rather than asking question.
I know I asked one question and never did get an answer that addressed the issue, therefore never felt like awarding an answer.
One reason, as another poster suggested, is that many of the questions are posted by sporadic visitors who are not invested in the site and do not log in frequently enough to bother awarding answers.
Another reason is that the traffic to that site has gone way down and hardly anyone bothers asking or answering anymore. The site offers some revenue share, but the amount is so piddly and you only get it on questions where you are awarded best answer. I think most people have just given up on using that site so most of the questions and answers have gone abandoned. That site also has a high percentage of unanswered questions.
i stopped using those as a means to earn extra income. They are not worth the time spent right here on hubpages.

Has anyone had any luck with WebAnswers?I heard this is another way to make money similar to HubPages except you just answer questions. Can anyone provide actual numbers on earnings, and maybe compare them to your HubPages earnings?
