    Well, whoever will be Googling for specific questions will find answers on Yahoo. Say for example you are looking for the best hotel in x city, whatever keyword you input, your result on Google may come up as a Yahoo answer. I have been doing Yahoo Q&A before, and obviously you need to leave your backlink as a source. Tip: Don't make your Yahoo too spammy, make it look natural or else, someone will report it as spam and you will get a notification from Yahoo. You can add your link on the source field to make it look natural. Also, include your keyword within the Yahoo Q or A. Lotsa luck!

    They don't have that much of benefit SEO-wise but they will drive some traffic to your website. Becoming a level 2 yahoo answers user will allow you to place clickable links.

    They carry high authority and the best part is if they stick you get long term traffic :)

    YA's are also pretty easy to rank in Google!

    What everyone said. I discovered earlier on in 2007 that good answers actually increased sign ups to a web 2.0 site that I was managing, as well as sales and calls to the company that I worked for that sold online marketing services. So make sure that you have helpful and relevant answers, include your link (when you reach the level - it's really easy to get to that stage), etc.

    Yahoo Answers may be No-follow but you need Nofollow links in the mix to make it look natural. If every single one of your links is do-follow, things end up looking really strange. Yahoo Answers is also effective at driving traffic if your question and answer ends up ranking well.

    The PR of Yahoo Answer is High; so if you put your KW with your website link in Yahoo Answer - then you also get high Page rank in google.

    yahoo answers is good for a few reasons,,, it helps your inbound marketing, link diversity, and has social value, especilly if ur a service company, answering a few industry related questions every now and again makes you a authority on a subject,,, google tends to reward that (for now anyway)

    There are two advantages:
    1. The targeted traffic source
    2. Powerful backlink source (Only you can add raw url in yahoo answer. so, it help for backlink diversification to avoid penguin slap)

    The best part of Yahoo answers is that, you can even use to promote your offers, not directly but to use a landing page.

    Yahoo answer is best to get fast traffic
