    I am thinking to sell Yahoo answers accounts. These are made with Indian IP. Want to know that can they be used by people worldwide from different countries. I mean when they will log on from a new country, will it cause any problem ?

    I don't think so. I've purchased these accounts before and used different IP for each one. Yahoo could ban the accounts, but remember that some people (genuine users) have IP's that change all the time.

    Give me a heads up if you decide to sell.

    You definitely need a good IP for each Yahoo Account. I'm a provider of yahoo answer bots and this has been crucial for our marketers to keeping their accounts alive.

    Yahoo is pretty strict with their email stuff and usually catch on pretty quickly if the IPs look outta whack. Not sure if it's the same for the Answers accounts though.

    They do. When you log in from a different location, they ask if you want to update your details or something.

    Yes, they do. You need a new IP per acc.

    Yes, they do. They are actually pretty strict with having more than one account per IP. So, use proxies.

    It really depends on your kind of use. Moderate use with the same IP, not a big deal, excessive use can turn into a problem.

    Yes depending on how many accounts you're talking about. I've had about 100 in the past, all on different IPs. They're still live! I've had others on the same proxies and usually the questions get deleted but the account doesn't.

    It goes without saying that if a competitor sees you as a threat, they'll look at your answer history & report all your answers.

    One step to stop this is to make the following changes:
    Under Sharing and Network:, change the drop down box Share My Q&A with: from
    Everyone to My Contacts Only
    Do the same with Share My Answers Network With.
    Leave everything else as it is. Now click Submit to save your changes.

    I've been buying level 2 Y!A accounts for my campaigns from a seller, and the accounts are good.

    I only pay $4 for 5 - which is the cheapest that I've seen. You can get them cheaper if you buy from him in bulk (I used to buy cheap and resell on Fiverr).

    It is always good if you use different IPs...
    Just play safe.
