Google Answers Returns, But Only in Russia

Unlike the original Google Answers, there are no hired experts and people don't have to pay to ask questions. Instead, you use your points to "pay" for a question and you earn points by posting answers or rating other people's answers. If your answer gets bad ratings, you lose points. When you start to type a question, Google shows related questions in a sidebar to prevent the problem of duplication.

You can set the number of points you are willing to offer for the right answer and the number of days the question remains active. To find a question to answer, you can perform a search, browse the most recent questions or subscribe to the labels that match your interests. The service has a pretty smart system for rewarding good answers. If successful, Google Q&A could expand globally. . { via Google Blogoscoped } Russian Family Bistro - San Bruno.
