    Quora is a jumbled mess. YA! is simple and easy to use

    Yahoo answers are better compared to Quora questions and answers.

    Quora has a focus on making questions canonical and reusable, whereas my impression is that Yahoo Answers has a focus on getting answers for users who have asked questions; Some of the reasons that I think this are: Yahoo Answers asks a question asker to choose a best answer to a question which will then mark the question as resolved (which means no new answers are asked for.) On Quora, the person who added the question is deemphasized and other users can edit the text of the question to make it better, and on Quora, the asker of the question isn't necessarily expected to be the best judge of the answers given.

    I have noticed Quora has been dominating the SERPs. So it seems as though Quora is more a "collaborative" Q&A site. Am I right in saying that?

    The main reason behind that the people care about the quality of there content on Qoura is that the sole purpose of this site is just for answering the questions and nothing else while for yahoo it have no specifications.

    Both are best platform to participate in question/answer sites. Both have same value, if your answer is best then it appear in top organic listing that help to bring substantial amount of traffic.

    Quora has more authority than yahoo answers. But if you are looking for simple questions then yahoo answers is best for you. Quora is more organized than yahoo.

    Yahoo questions can be as long as necessary, and can be updated constantly, while answers must be 1000 or less characters. Questions may have details alongside links
    Quora questions must be 250 characters or less, and cannot have details, only links. Answers however can be very long, and have pictures, Italics, bold, lists, and sourcing.

    Quora and Yahoo Answering, Both are the question and answer sites but most of the users use Quora than Yahoo Answering.
    There may be some minor differences between both, But both are used for question & Answering.
