    On Yahoo Answers for two days. First day only posted around 5 answers. Second day posted about 7. My account already got suspended. I was not blatantly marketing. Probably half my posts made no reference to any products. Other half gave a link to a product that person asked about. The only thing all my posts contained was my name with url to my website. Would that get me suspended?

    i think they check it if you post the same homepages again and again...perhaps try with redirecting all subdomain entrys to main domain and post different subdomains every answer

    Did you have any other type of marketing going on?

    So your answers only contained your name and a link? I think I know why you got suspended. Hell, I would have hit the spam/abuse button too. That's just a bit to blatant man. At least give the suckers a decent sentence or 2 before hitting them with your link. :pcguru:

    No, my answers did not only have my link. My answers were specific to the question and directed them to links specific to their question. In other cases, my answer contained a link to my site in the response. The only thing all answers had in common was my signature which contained a link to my url.

    For example, I responded to a post on how to create a budget. I provided an in depth answer. Gave them links to Dave Ramsey's site as well as a few other sites. I then signed it as follows:

    Shawn
    My link

    Happens all the time to young accounts.
    Give it 24 hours and you should be unbanned.
    it will probably happen a few more times, then you will be able to post more in a day without getting shutdown.

    Keep your answers on topic and try not to look spammy and you will get more mileage.
