Webanswers.com Review- A Warning

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 2 9

This is my honest review and opinion of the website Webanswers.com. This review  reflects my personal experience as a user on the site. Webanswers is an Adsense sharing website where people ask and answer questions. The person asking the question can award a best answer to the one who comes up with the best quality answer.

The person who has their answer awarded can receive Adsense royalties for a year on that page. This lead me to believe that users would be focusing on giving great answers all the time. I recently signed up for this website, maybe 2 weeks ago. I got really bored answering questions, but found that I preferred asking questions instead. The problem? This website leaves a person wide open for rude attacks from other members.

Webanswers.com Has No Comment Moderation

Some of the questions I asked were answered in very critical and rude ways that were personal in nature. Once you ask a question on this site, any rude troll can say whatever they want and there is no way to remove a nasty comment. I hate sites that don't have comment moderation. Flagging a nasty answer got me nowhere and the comments are still there.

There Is A Serious Troll Problem On Webanswers.com

There seems to be a core group of users that enjoy flaming and trolling on this site. Almost immediately I wanted to delete my account because this type of environment turns me off. The troll personality will always be around on the internet, but not being able to delete negative comments isn't fair to the question asker. Some of these folks are long-term users and are getting away with foul behavior.

My Account Is Being Held Hostage

I want to close my account with Webanswers as I will not put up with no comment moderation on a site that has so many rude users. I have been trying to close my account with this site for more than 2 weeks. First, I used the contact form provided on the site. No response. I then sent 3 personal e-mails with the last one written in size 32 font telling them to close my account. Still no response whatsoever from the admin of this site.

A warning: this site has an unresponsive admin. If you go to Webanswers, you will find that many people have tried to close their accounts and they get absolutely ignored. I don't just want to keep my account open and never use it. I want them to close my account and delete me permanently from their system. They are holding my account hostage. I have already disconnected my Adsense account so they are not profiting from holding me hostage.

Ideas For Getting My Account Banned

I am so upset about the unresponsive admin that I am now desperate enough to start trying to get myself banned on purpose. If I have to, I will start copy-pasting and whatever I have to do to be removed from this site. As you can see, my personal experience with Webanswers has been negative.I am very upset and disgusted at this point.

It is the combination of no comment moderation for insulting answers and lack of response from the site's owner that made me write this personal review. I am sure that many people love Webanswers.com.  My personality is such that I don't want to deal with rude comments to make money online.

Hi, I use Webanswers as well, although I've had no issues there as of yet. I don't ask very many questions as I prefer to answer. I will tell you this much though, even though your ads are no longer displayed on pages with your content, I assure you Webanswers still has ads on those pages. They will keep earning their cut. Disconnecting your account from Adsense only takes earnings away from you, not Webanswers. So if you can't get your account closed you may want to keep your Adsense on, so at least you'll get the profit you earned.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I, too, use WebAnswers and have had no problem. I have asked a few questions, and always gotten helpful answers. I have answered over 300 questions, and not had a problem. I will, however, try to be more aware of the issues you mentioned, and be careful about what questions I answer.

Yes, there administrator is very unresponsive which is disappointing since I am making Webanswers money with my answers. I have answered about 75 questions with a 65.2% award-to-answer ration and I am seeing about 10 or more views per day in Adsense.

Guess what! Although Adsense acknowledges the connection with Webanswers, Webanswers fails to see the connection to Adsense, thus they aren't posting up my publisher-id on any questions! I have e-mailed the administrator 3 times over the past 2 weeks to no avail.

This administrator is severely disappointing.

I'm sorry to hear that happened to you, DRMorris. It looks like Webanswers purposely ignores users. This is how the Factoid scam started. Any site that does this is highly suspicious and up to no good, in my opinion.

I have made over 12 requests to be removed and they wont do it. I wish I had never signed up.

I am wondering if there are any admins over there. I did some digging a couple of months ago when I first signed up. There is no evidence to me that anyone is monitoring the site. Except one time, shortly after I joined in February, I saw someone was banned for inappropriate behavior. Other than that, I think they are asleep at the wheel.

DPeach, I wish I could tell you some of things that I have done on purpose to get kicked off Webanswers and they still wont let me go. It should be called SPiderweb answers. I tried copy and paste answers from Wikipedia and asking questions in Russian curse words ...what did that person do to get banned? Lucky fellow!

Deleting your adsense does not stop admin from profiting - it actually helps them. Without your adsense code the site keeps all the revenue.

The site is definitely set up to be hands off and just make money. All kinds of people post all kinds of garbage on the web. Why are you concerned about what other people say in response to your questions? I don't even look at the questions I ask there again unless I feel like selecting a best answer.

Also, to DRMorris - pretty sure the site is blocking you from seeing ads with your own adsense id. This is pretty common to prevent problem clicks. If you see impressions and clicks on Adsense you are good to go.

When somebody calls me "dude" and tries to start a fight, I find it quite disturbing. I am an older lady who enjoys polite conversation. Yes, I do understand that people post garbage on the web.

I choose to spend time in more positive communities. Some of us in this world prefer to speak to others in a mutually respectful way and not in that combative, "ready for battle" way that some people seem to enjoy.
