Q&A is big and profitable.

ReadWriteWeb posted about the success of Answers.com today. They are growing rapidly and profitable which is great, but where is it all coming from? WikiAnswers is the answer.

On a separate note PaidContent posted about Sharecare, a health Q&A launching with some great expert content from Dr. Oz and a team he is assembling.

Q&A is big business. But RWW raises an important issue: How good is the content? At these mega sites it may be questionable (pun intended). We think that the content will be better when Q&A is integrated into site content and their communities.

UGC is gradually moving in the direction of Social Content which is far more relevant and valuable. That’s why we provide Social Q&A for communities with expert content.
