    Lets post opinions on Yahoo Answers. This can be ideas on how to promote, what attempts have worked, if the traffic is buying traffic, etc.



    Are you driving general traffic to adverts or niche traffic?

    Gaming Section > Gaming blog w/ CPA Offers?
    or
    Gaming Section > Gaming blog w/ Content Locker
    or
    Gaming Section > Gaming blog w/ Adsense

    Thats one example.

    How come SOME yahoo answers rank well in Google? Will BACKLINKS help your Yahoo Answers rank higher? Do you target high EPC adsense, or hot products now? Can we ask high keyword-density questions and expect for google to AUTOMATICALLY place our links high in the SERPS?

    I see Answer Assault is here, which in fact is a fantastic product. I just needed my personal bot to do a little more. Now I am sitting on a bot that can ask/answer/confirm best answer/vote best answer/star as interesting/add user to "friends", etc.

    Any ideas on monetizing this program? What is a better angle?

    Products w/ Amazon, Ebay, etc?
    Blogs w/ Adsense?
    Blogs w/ Content lock?
    CPA Offers?

    Blatant spamming gets accounts suspended. My main idea would be to get 50-100 "TEMPLATES" outsourced, then have it auto-reply with a template and the subject. This effectively would be able to place a GENERAL bit of information and a link.

    Has anyone thought about an "information" gatherer? Say you put a product in, it searches information websites like wikipedia, amazon etc which would make your answers even easier. What websites would you recommend to scour information from.

    This is from another thread posted by me:

    HTML:
    I discovered this not long ago. Here it is:
    
    Put down in Google for ALL questions search:
    
    site:answers.yahoo.com "keyword" 
    
    If you want only open questions put this:
    
    site:answers.yahoo.com "keyword" -top answer -best answer
    
    If you want it down by specific time you can tell google to show recent or 24 hours or week.
    
    I was amazed to find out that a highly competitive niche was getting 1000 questions a day! WOW. Can you imagine that???
    
    Enjoy!
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 10

    must say i use it like in the book by the letter,

    private proxies proxies old establish Y accounts

    I GOT BAN from yahoo!

    all yahoo accounts i use can NOT post any more links!

    if u do tool like that please make it safe to use

    i will be the first one to buy it.

    what i need in tool like that is option to load multiple questions & answers and let the bot drip them to yahoo answers,
    make it look more organic

    I have never used a bot with Yahoo answers but have always done it manually. Had some good results until my accounts started to get banned.

    Bans will occur, I've noticed you need a ratio of answers with AND without links.

    Has anyone found success with selling products or which approach was most successful?

    I'm interested in making long term money with Yahoo. Similar to seo.

    Whats your opinion on PRODUCTS? Products review page, link's to WHAT OFFERS? Amazon? I get it that slow money is better than no money, but this method is starting to seem bust for me. I have the ability to post 1,000-5,000 questions/day. Have the ability to answer w/ spun messages and can cost TONS of answers.

    I am getting alot of best answers there...

    I stopped my adfly links and am now using
    my forwarded INFO domain to put in source..

    Alot of free info on that ebook site, so I am guessing
    all these people are just running with the free info
    and not buying ... Plus, these kids are young .. like 13
    to 17yrs old and probably don't have a credit card near by :(

    Not sure how to target older people on yahoo .. Am I
    in the wrong section?

    John

    This is the best source of traffic. I use it more for my PayDotCom products to sell them, I often prey upon teenagers who want to get rich quick, and I found niche searches that are common amongst these kids...
