If you search for [transferring iphone contacts to new iphone] in Google, Google will give you one of their smart answers that looks like this:

Google Answer RadioShack

But if you try to click through to the page, you will be presented with an error saying the page is dead, no longer there:

Radioshack Dead Url Google

RadioShack on February 5, 2015 filed for bankruptcy, Chapter 11. Of there 4,297 US stores, 1,784 are slated to close and the web site has been somewhat changed.

Including their Tech Channel that provides useful answers to tech related questions.

Google is linking to an answer that is no longer available. I suspect Google Answers take a bit longer to be updated than normal web results.
