When googling apple-related queries, like "how do I do x", there's typically a lot of sites which are search engine optimised appearing toward the top of the results, and a lot of the time, the content is wildly out of date, or worse, not even useful but simply clickbait.
For this reason, I wonder how good or bad is it to ask such seemingly easy to answer questions on AD? That is, questions, which are technically answered on the internet many times over, but whose articles are buried between clickbait and worse, and whose articles are festooned with advertisements and other distractions?
I think for future people googling, Ask Different offers a far superior experience, being relatively ad-free, typically having answers from more authoritative sources than most other apple sites, and a range of other benefits (like being more likely to be updated, critiqued etc).
Here is an example of an easy-to-google question I had recently:

Google results differ by user/location, but Ask Different didn't appear even in the top 100 results for me, which was surprising, yet a lot of notable "junk" websites did.
Is there general agreement that asking "basic" questions is good for the apple product users, even if it means the occasional very banal question has to be asked/answered here on Ask Different, or should we refrain from asking/answering questions which are already elsewhere on the web?
