I was just wondering if there is anything done to make posts appear on, say, Google search results. Most of the Stack Overflow posts I end up with from Google have answers. Is there anything done to those non-answered posts so that they don't appear in the search results?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
It's good news for the SO community if answered or unanswered questions rank well on Google.
Answered questions help enhance the SO community reputation (for want of a better word) and if someone within the SO community can't make a good enough answer, perhaps someone who's yet to join might know the answer - and if they stumble upon the question through Google where's the harm?
