    No that's a good thing -- you want that kind of niche targeted traffic. Unless you're doing something blackhat -- don't worry.

    Yahoo answers is good traffic don't worry. You "should" be paid as long as everything else is good.

    I use to have yahoo traffic on my adsense and all so yahoo directory no problems off google. If your concerned try finding another source of traffic and do the same you do with yahoo answers. Then you have two ways just build on it and keep going.

    It is great that you are getting targeted traffic from Yahoo! answers. Your success is inspiring. Posting and linking to your site should not be viewed as spam unless you are not giving valuable content. If the posted content is relevant and valuable you should be fine. If you are worried about this I would research good ways to comment on threads and blogs. There is great incite on this subject and it could give you additional traffic sources to work with.

    I'm glad to read that your traffic is converting so well. I haven't read much about Yahoo! Answers lately, but your results are proof that it still works.

    Quick question for you though. Are you posting a set amount of responses daily, or did you do a one-time thing? I'd think you have to keep posting on a consistent basis to keep up the traffic, but I don't know because it's something I've never bothered to try.

    Anyhow, keep up the good work, and scale it!

    Thanks, I posted answers to 3 questions relevant to my niche i believe, 2 of the question have 2 answers on them from me using different yahoo accounts with a clickable link as source.
    The questions are ranking on 1st page of google.ca and google.com for the keyword im targeting, so people are finding my site even if im not ranking anywhere on google. I jumped from $5 to $20 a day for the past 2 days, thanks to yahoo answers. I plan to search for long tail keywords relevant to my niche and look on google if some of the keywords have yahoo answers ranked on 1st page, then answer them with a link to my site. It will be additional traffic coming to my site. :)

    Sounds like a good plan. I'd be interested in following your journey if you decide to keep posting your results. I like to see others succeed. It's solid motivation for me, and these success stories help to keep me in a positive mindset.
