Session: SMX Wikipedia Yahoo Answers

Wikipedia, Yahoo Answers and Answer Sharing panel

Raise your hand if you like your opinions to be heard. Good! That’s what I though. SMX Social Media’s session on answer sharing with Wikipedia (#1 reference site) and Yahoo Answers (#2 reference site) gave insight that appealed to those of us with big mouths and a hankering for research.

Matt McGee, SEO Manager of Marchex, spoke first on Yahoo Answers. Yahoo Answers is a place for users to ask and answer questions. Ask and answer as many as you like, but don’t answer with garbage. Make sure you do your research to provide the best answer to the users. There is even a small search box within the answer submission page where you can do a little online research and provide links in your answer to make it better and more believable. It will help your reputation as a Yahoo Answers contributor.

Google Adds Wikipedia to OneBox Results

Lee Odden on Jan 28th, 2007     Google, Online Marketing

Steve Rubel reports today that Wikipedia entries now appear in Google OneBox results. Just add “info” or “information” to your query and the first results will be from Wikipedia if there’s a match. Will an entry in Wikipedia be what a DMOZ entry used to be? Perhaps in more ways than one.

For a great resource on how to take advantage of marketing opportunities via Google OneBox, I recommend reading Brian Mark’s blog, The OneBoxer.

Matt asks for your favorite Web 2.0 companies. Here’s a huge list from Seth Godin and another from SEOMoz.

Blogs have gone missing from Yahoo News reports TW. Steve Rubel notices too and suggests that Yahoo is building a dedicated blog and feed search tool. Maybe something like: reader.yrank.feeds.yahoo.com.
Update: Greg Jarboe offers some interesting insight suggesting that perhaps Yahoo is not permanently taking blogs out of news search results.
