    Not sure if this is allowed or new but just thought of an idea to sell some clickbank products.. Tell me what you guys think.

    1. Create a Yahoo Answers question specifically worded for your keyword. Fill it with as much information as possible

    2. Use a separate account to answer that question, with your clickbank product included in your answer

    3. Vote your answer as the best answer

    4. Rinse and Repeat


    Just a little twist on what people have been doing for a while now. Doing this with several accounts and products could help you see a few sales. If it is against Yahoo Answers tos just make sure not to link the accounts in any way and you should be fine.

    It would also probably be a good idea to give some real answers with these accounts as well so that you don't draw any suspicion.

    Yahoo cracked down on this pretty hard over the last few years. I think only aged and popular accounts can post links, but there's probably still a way to get this to work.

    I think that yahoo will ban your accounts. It depends on amount of complaints your answer receives because of the link in it. And trust me, this happens often.
    I think it would be better to include a link in the question and ask others what they think about it.

    Workarounds:

    1) Consider answering questions without adding links until you reach level 3. The extra seniority may help out with the durability.

    2) Time the answers for late in the YA window for answering the question. Less chance of somebody flagging the answer.

    3) Use a YouTube url in your answer, that in turn links to the CB or affiliate url. YA respects YT as a link.

    4) Don't answer every question with a link, or with your monetizing link. Mix it up.

    The questions isn't IF this method will work, it's HOW long will it? You will most likely have your content reported for SPAM and BANNED by some a stay at home mom, who is active in the yahoo answers community and has nothing better to do with time other than post blogs and videos on how much they hate people who use UN-ORGANIC methods to gain a profit. They know your only giving advice for a reason and when your answer get's chosen as a BEST over THEIRS, well you can almost bet they will report you. On the good side we were able to usually get an opt in or 2 before getting the account banned. Also once your account is banned all your old questions you posted will be deleted. :)

    Real good answers here, yes LEVEL 3 ACCOUNTS ONLY. Basically everyone has to view you as someone they don't want to challenge. Posting links to youtube will work, but like I said if you don't have level 3 it won't work, those stay at home soccer moms will go to your link and see what it is and then report you. Basically if you were in court you would have to prove that you aren't trying to gain a profit, so mix it up and I mean BIG TIME, (more real answers than answers with links). Also BTW people on yahoo warn other people about BLACK HAT, they give screenshots saying "hey look at this site these guys are blah blah" . Okay good luck

    Ask the person who has been selling Yahoo Answers Accounts since 2010 on BHW :) It does work but you have to be bit crafty and do lots of testing.

    So do your accounts come with a method, or do most people buy 100 level 3 accounts from you and test the waters themselves? I'm curious as I had my real account I used for 10 years active level 3 banned for recommending a site that wasn't even mine lol, this was before I knew about IM.

    You guys ever heard of YA reporting team? Direct CB/CJ/any marketplace link in YA is NOT recommended.

    This wont work. I level an account up to lvl 5 doing that. I started by answering dating questions without links, and when I did use links i was linking to Youtube videos. I even reported spammer and got the Contributor Status. All this and still got banned. All it takes is a bunch of competitors to hunt you down.

    The idea was to cut down the odds of a ban or delay it as long as possible per YA account. The idea is better durability, but not guaranteed permanent survival. In addition to the 4 suggestions I made, the next best tactic is to keep creating YA accounts, When one or two goes down via a ban, 1 or 2 new ones go active, rinse and repeat. Meanwhile, previous answers with links stay up under the old banned accounts.
