Information available on Google Answers includes names of musicians and artists, health-related information such as symptoms for certain illnesses, and technical information about computers. Google Answers allowed users to submit questions and pay researchers to answer them
As of 2015, Google Answers is not accepting new questions, and the site serves as an archive of previously submitted questions and answers. The site divides its content into a number of question and answer categories, including Arts and Entertainment, Business and Money, Computers, Family and Home, and Health. Clicking a category directs the user to a page listing all answered questions in this category. For example, clicking the Family and Home category brings up a list of questions on topics such as parenting, income and adoption. Each category also has sub-categories. For example, the Family and Home category includes the following subcategories: Food and Cooking, Families, Gardening, Parenting and Pets.
To submit a question to Google Answers, users first had to create an account. Upon submitting a question, the user also specified the price they would be willing to pay for an answer. Non-registered users could view the questions and answers, but only registered users could comment on questions. User comments did not count as answers to the questions.
