What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

After stackoverflow team launched their other websites through area51, some times I face a problem while trying to ask a question "on which website should i ask this question".

For example I wanted to ask about a service to allow users to pay to my website and i can just integrate in my website easily. I got confused, should i ask on webapps, money, or stackoverflow, or should i ask on all?

Is there a way to take advice about where to ask my question?

I wanted to ask about a service to allow users to pay to my website and i can just integrate in my website easily.

That sounds like a question for the Pro Webmasters site since it's about the operation of a site that you control. Once you select a service you can probably ask specific questions about programming with it on Stack Overflow.

on which website should i ask this question.

I usually go to Area 51 and browse the list of sites in public beta, then go to the FAQ for a site that I think will be appropriate. They all have a "What kind of questions can I ask here?" section at the top.

I'm not sure if we've established a place where you can ask others where they'd ask a question other than here on Meta. (Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.) If you have enough reputation, you might try asking in one of the chat rooms.
