Just because ask.fpo is "fedora" hosted , that doesn't mean its the best source of content.

For this specific query, infact there are no questions on ask.fpo


SEO project aside, content is king.

As to it being useless, AFAIK, its just a fedora hosted app, not an official documentation or answering place. fedora forums have been around for years now, ask.fpo for months.

I would rather have a user directed to a valid answer than ask.fpo with no results.

my 2 cents.

I am wondering why anytime I am searching some issue with Fedora, ask.fedoraproject.org is never shown in Google's results. How is that? That should be one of ours primary sources of answers for common questions.

For example, when I google for "fedora 19 installation fails", on first page I get referecnes to

* fedora wiki
* fedoraforum.org
* wikihow
* bugzilla
* google groups
* and some other unknown pages

ask.fp.o does not appear on first 10 pages of Google. I am afraid it is useless service unless it appears in Google.

Any thoughts?
