    I decided to make a Yahoo answers question for a relatively high competition keyword and I ended up placing on the second page, i'm just wondering, can I build backlinks to the question page?

    Will it actually work and be effective?

    If your question is one that won't be taken down by Yahoo then I don't see why you can't do what you are wanting. Havn't used Yahoo answers for years but I'm not sure if any outgoing links are marked as nofollow or not so if you're looking for link juice those are the things you might want to take into consideration. You will also in turn be helping out anyone else that chooses to contribute a decent answer and includes their url in the sources box or whatever it's called...

    I still think you would be better off building your own Web 2.0 properties and building a linkwheel with them and having your money site as the center of the "wheel". If you don't have the time but you have the $$$ yhere are members that will be willing to do this for you. I bartered services with a member on here to do a linkwheel for me... although I no longer have anything to do with my money site (ran out of time to market it due to studies etc) they done a really good job. BHW is a haven for this kind of thing so have a browse around, as my avatar says... BHW rocks! :).

    I'm pretty sure that any link posted on Yahoo Answers is nofollow, but as for building links offsite, I was thinking about it last night why would they care if you build links to their site just more money for them right?

    It may be nofollow, but YA is a very good source of high quality traffic if you use it properly.

    Ya I figured you could do it, just wondering if Yahoo will catch on to it I created a question and made another account on a different ip to answer the question. No links are involved to promote anything just looking to test a few things. I think I should be safe, anyone ever try this building backlinks to yahoo answer questions?

    It's kind of weird, because I've started building links to my question page I've noticed a few different things. I'm still on the third page, but I've actually jumped up a few spots since my previous post.

    The weird thing is, I'm using an SEO plugin on Google Chrome to keep track of different things such as backlinks etc. When I click to see the backlinks, it shows links that I've never linked to.
