    Hello

    I am trying to promote a niche on yahoo answers, I tried to post answers related to my niche in all permutations and combinations like good descriptive answers, sometimes answers with shortened url , sometimes answers with promotional image etc. But every time i answer any thing related to my niche they got flagged and removed or hidden by yahoo but I can see other people spamming yahoo answers under my niche freely.
    Is there anything what I dont know? Is there technique what can be applied in this case?

    Regards

    It is your competitors that flagged you.Mix up your answers with answers that have no link.Send them to an article that is related to your affiliate offer than direct link to an affiliate link so that you won't look trying to sell something but to help them.Also look for other areas for promotion than yahoo answers.

    You advice is really useful and I will certainly follow it but at same time I am still curious about them who are doing it with no issues at all. Is there any hidden technique (apart from your advice) or a tool to pass yahoo filters?
    Regards

    What level is your Yahoo Answers account? The Yahoo Answers community is very anal about preventing users from abusing their community, so it's more than likely those overzealous users flagging your posts rather than just your competitors.

    If your account is fairly new, try spending some time building up your account. Some people even buy older accounts, so you can also look into that.

    Additionally, posting in old open questions instead of new ones would be a better strategy as the old questions are less likely to be patrolled by the YA police.

    Several years ago, I had your problem where people were flagging my posts on Yahoo Answers. At the time, I was promoting a GPT site using a referral link and I didn't really know about Internet marketing or even Black Hat World. What I did to solve my problem was use my YA account to provide honest answers to questions in specific categories in order to build up a bit of a reputation there. I then "sandwiched" posts with my affiliate link in there (and later on I would link to a poorly-designed Blogspot blog I made that had my affiliate link in it) in order to avoid being constantly flagged, because you do lose points for receiving a violation. Occasionally, if a question such as "how to make money online" appeared, I would provide a link to my Blogspot affiliate site as well as 3 other websites in order to avoid looking suspicious.

    These exact methods may not work any more as I'm pretty sure the community would have caught on to it by now (or maybe not), but trying a variation of it might help.

    Same thing was happened with me so I remove www or http from my link and just mention my site name and they only remove few answers but not all.

    If you try to give a answer to "how many fingers human have?" but you link your site url which show about human head then of-course yahooanswer will remove your link.

    Do you think that you would be flagged for spam from the email account that you use? Not sure if this would happen or not.

    It depends upon rate of getting flagged, I did read yahoo policies yesterday which states, they deletes spam answers only in the beginning, then they disable yahoo answer account and everything works fine in rest of yahoo services. At last they delete whole yahoo account .
