    Give your account to your girlfriend and let her go answering all kinds of crap.

    Your account ends up looking pretty good and the link dumping and shameless plugs become a lot harder for yahoo to detect.


    It happened by chance, she was bored and likes to tell people what to do(annoying!), so I showed her Yahoo answers and now whenever she is bored she goes and spouts a load of good crap (but still useless crap to me!).


    Wikinomics baby!

    Haha, a possible alternative...

    Outsourcing is a good idea though (if you're doing it manually).

    This is how I use Yahoo Answers

    1) I only answer questions that have to do with one of my sites, usually zombie questions.

    2) I make sure to plug the hell out of my site.

    3) The person asking the questions usually doesn't pick a winner, so I always vote for myself when it goes to user voting. Out of 67 answers I have a 37% best answer rate.

    Now can I track if this leads to more visitors? No... but I can always hope. :clit:
