    Ya is good because of his high ranking in Google, some questions are in the 1 place in Google over 2009/2010 and people still reading their answer nowday...but

    Recently i've figured out that every day on Ya tons of people are asking for :

    1 -
    Some strange book in PDF ( They want it for free, sometimes directly to their email address!) When this is not specified it's impossible to find the book on Amazon or similar, they are not famous book.

    2 - Something about calories. For example they are asking how much calories they have eaten today telling you what they get on launch/dinner. They are also asking if the calories they have eaten today are good to losing weight. However all is around calories, food, and losing fat. They look like children that wants to learn as much as they can.

    Probably these questions will not rich a high position in G. but, i repeat, they are tons every day. Every time i open my Ya i can see some similar quesion in my account's home.

    Can someone help me to figure out how can i monetize this kind of questions ? I really need some help to start something good.

    Advices ? Informations ?

    Thank you very much!

    PM me I have an idea. It is always nice to see new avenues discovered which are not so saturated yet. I hope you can monetize this. I tried my this idea actuall before, but it is a little bit too much work for me, (as you mentioned each question/answer must be individually worked on, as your answer must relate to the question)

    OK, I can't even ANSWER a pm until I have 15 posts... I never ever seen such restrictive site before in my life. I can't for my life of it understand this, like they don't want to have more users. It is incredibly hard with the further restrictions in place (only limited areas on the forum count towards your post count and even the post must be long enough etc). It would be nice to have some info in the FAQ not just about the restrictions, but about the easiest ways to make 15 comments, which sections/what kind of posts lend themselves for such postings. I mean seriously what could possibly a newbie offer that worth 15 posts, he is here for learning something in the first place, not to broadcast the whole gospel in 15 sections...

    OK I have 8 (hopefully now 9) posts, let's see if I can make it to 15 in a couple of hours, then I answer your PM.

    Think PPD, since you think they are teens - they won't buy anything, anyways they have time to fill surveys ;). Offer them something like calor calculator or similar on download (I think these are easy to find so you dont need to fake em).

    Just post comments it's not hard I just did one now. Even if you know nothing it's not hard to bullshit a post that's not going to get you banned. It need only be a few words long and on topic.

    Offer them the book they ask for via a link and put it (greyhat) or any book (blackhat) in a content locker.

    Millions of people. That is why we have hundreds of journeys on this site showing people making hundreds and thousands from it.


    Give them what they want through adfly links. Send them to clickbank offers. Start a site with standard adsense ads on it and use yahoo to send traffic.

    hmm, one problem could be which I have already encountered is, often there is a Robin Hood type of guy, who goes through your url shortener or locker and just posts your stuff in the next post right after yours...

    the best way i found to make money with YA and i have used in the past is the following:

    you can do this in an categorie on YA except for the make money online type categories, because there are a lot of haters there that will flag you for no good reason...
    so go into the health categorie for example....
    - set up a simple site or even a web 2.0 blog like blogspot
    - go to YA and pick a question from someone that seems desparate is the best, and try to make sure the question is NOT asked by a child, because they have trouble paying for things online
    - search google for the best quality answer to their question you can find from different sources if needed... its best if you create a answer in the form of 10 steps... or 10 best ways, something like that
    - go to your site/blog and create a good informative post specific for their question, using the info you googled and put it in a list of 10 best or 15 steps format, something like that
    - go to YA and give them part of the answer... like the first 3 steps or tips and tell them to read more about it on the site, put the link in the box that YA asigns for it and not in the answer box itself
    - in the blogpost softsell them on a product or simply mention it with some nice links to the product of course
    - also put adsense on that blog
    - do this all day long!
    - it lost of work in the beginning, but after a while you get lots of the same questions, so you can send them to your earlier created posts and dont need to create them all from scratch all of the time

    i found this method to be working quit well, if you stick with it

    cheers!!

    The ideas you have in mind are things that you can easily work on. However, the success rate of your plans will always depend on how you will execute what you have in mind. You should try making your market become engaged in what you will offer them. PPD is a good option.

    The model the op suggested was posting links for requested book downloads on Yahoo Answers, so people aren't searching they will just goto the link.

    Equally you cannot really complain about people "pirating" your content when your content was pirated to begin with. Just move onto the next one.

    If you can get $10 out of each content locker post and you do 10 per day that is $3000 per month. Not too bad!

    what I meant these guys don't pirate your stuff, they just think they do a public service to repost their own direct link to your stuff without any locker, or simply the direct destination link of your shortened url, often accompanied by some smug comment stating what an "easier way to download seems to be" what they posted...

    On the other hand, related to my previously mentioned doubts about the feasibility of lockers the ones paying $10 must pose serious tasks and not just a simple timer, I mean seriously I'm not deliberitaly trying to diss these lockers, but please read the OP of this thread:
    gooDOTglSLASHe7Ib7s0

    And even THAT one pays only about $1 per download... So what am I missing? Am I correct then assuming that, when you say 10 people per day, then those 10 people actually have to buy something from the offers (practically without any chance to download for free), and this kind of (probably degenerate) audience, who are too stupid to search torrents or search more friendly, like timed lockers and use JDownloader; that I have to target my downloads?

    I mean it is good to know this before someone chooses the downloads' niche, that it probably shouldn't be anything that has anything to do with even remotely internet savvy people then, am I right?
