Posted on April 5, 2021
Yahoo Answers is shutting down. This is a surprise as the site is expected to provide a large amount of traffic to Yahoo.
The site will shut down on May 4th, 2021. It will switch to read-only mode starting on April 20, 2021.
Here is a statement from Yahoo on the Yahoo Answers page:
Yahoo Answers is shutting down on May 4th, 2021 (Eastern Time) and beginning April 20th, 2021 (Eastern Time) the Yahoo Answers website will be in read-only mode. There will be no changes to other Yahoo properties or services, or your Yahoo account.
A FAQ about the closure can be found on Yahoo Help. You will be able to download your Yahoo Answers content (including your Questions list, Questions, Answers list, Answers, and any images) until June 30, 2021.
