I recently came across data stackexchange. I was really surprised to notice that 'ASK Patents' is at bottom.
is that query true? How can we improve over it?
Yes, sadly, that query does look accurate. I was a bit wary at first of the possibility that it could be missing some sites, but it doesn't look like that's the case.
It's probably resultant from us getting a lot of "drive-by" traffic, where users come here, often direct from Google Patents, ask a question, then forget to come back to see if and how their questions were answered. Robert Cartaino, a Stack Exchange employee, expressed interest in another answer in changing that dynamic.
A big part of fixing that will likely be just working to build the community up. That's not a small task, nor is it one that will happen overnight. And I know Stack Exchange and I are always open to suggestions about how to work to build that community. But the simple answer is just to make sure we keep the site clean with as much high quality content as possible, then hopefully we'll attract attention of more experts, and eventually we'll build a steady economy of questions and answers.
I wish I had some brilliant insight to lend, but I don't. I've been thinking about this since you posted it, trying to come up with the best answer I could. But it's a really hard problem to solve. Continue posting solid content, and hopefully more and more people will start catching onto how the system works, and we can become a thriving community.
