    A couple of questions...

    1. Some asked a question on yahoo answers regarding one of my businesses and another yahoo member answered it by linking to a blog talking about my business. Now that blog is ranked in top 1-3 positions every time someone googles my business name. Id like to gte the yahoo answer / question removed. I believe that yahoo answer is definitely raising the blogs profile and I want it to drop. Any advice on getting the question removed? Should I report it using several IDs? Are there services that will do this? Is it automated like Craigslist, like after X number of reports it just comes down?

    2. Theres also a blog that come sup related to my business BUT it does not have my business name in it at all. When I try to get google to remove it, they tell me that someone has used my business name somewhere and linked to this blog. So even though my business name is not on the blog - the blog comes up! I have tried to find the backlinks for the blog by using link: in google, but it says there are none! Where do you guys recommend I go to find the backlinks for this blog?

    Thanks everyone!

    1. If the Yahoo answer answers the question then I doubt it'll get removed as it's been helpfull to the asker. Also, if the blog is just providing info about your business, they've not really done anything wrong. I'm sure they're not trying to rank for your business name keyword but if the site has more weight than yours it's going to happen :(
    2. In regards to the backlinks use Yahoo site expolrer to check them.

    1. To get the answer removed I would probably do what you have said and report it from different accounts but be sure to switch your IP addresses or they will probably link all your accounts together and put the ban hammer down. I have seen quite a bit of account bans on Y! answers lately. If you need someone to do this for you please let me know and I can assist you.

    2. Check out the site below... this is what I use to check back links of competition and it has yet to let me down. Hopefully this will aid you in your problem.
