Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The title "What if I don't get an answer?" does not bring "bounty" to mind. I saw bounties from using Stack Overflow and was interested to learn more. I tried looking in the FAQ but didn't find anything and eventually did a google search which is how I found out that "What if I don't get an answer?" is the question for bounties. Perhaps putting "(bounty)" or "(bounties)" after the question would help the title be more descriptive.

Actually, that part of the FAQ is not about bounties, but how to get an answer when you didn't get an answer already. Offering a bounty is the last try, when everything else have been already tried; it's not the first thing you should do when a question is left without an answer.

If you want to get more information about bounties, you can look for bounties, or bounty on this very site.

While technically correct, the question does however explain most of the specifics of how bounties work. At most 20% (in terms of screen height) of the question answers topics other than bounties. It explains when a bounty can be given, what amounts can be given, what the duration is, etc, etc, etc. – CrazyCasta Oct 1 '12 at 14:53
