    So yeah promoting a site on Yahoo Answers via normal method, find question give answer and add link but Yahoo is killing me. They banned my ip so I go in via proxy now but an hour after I post answers the account is banned and the questions gone.

    Are they doing it because of the domain name I'm promoting? I tried using tinyurl to change the link but that was banned instantly too.

    Anyone know a way around the Yahoo Bitch Slap?

    Now - why not make your own short urls - this is what I use - I can name it anything I want and can control the urls

    Make sure that the answer you provide is relevant to both the question and the link. Using a link when answering a question on yah00 should appear like you are knowledgeable regarding the subject and you are simply using the link as a reference to what you have written. In addition, yah00 has gotten pretty wise to the whole t-i-n-y-u-r-l business. In other words, using such a common url shortening service most likely = spam in their eyes. Try using a less known url cutter as well as implement some of the other suggestions given such as a-n-s-w-e-r-e-y-e.

    yes I abused the shit out of it for a few days to massive profits.

    i've been trying with ********* free version but when i use proxy it can't search, post or function at all. are you guys having luck using it?

    are you using the proxies that ********* finds online or using your own? i've tried both ways and still no dice.

    I had one of my Answers persona accounts "suspended" last week for violation of TOS. While I don't feel I violated TOS, I did begin to find an unusual surge in questions within one of my favorite niches.

    This persona of mine had a nice reputation and no less than 20% ratio of best answers to total posts too. HMPH!

    Aw well, guess I'll retire that persona entirely. Yeah, looks like Yahoo! is cracking down.

    Ah well, moving on.

    Yes, it's getting harder with YA. Last week I registered an account with ********* and 2 days later I wanted to use it for some bookmarking sites and to my shock it has been suspended by YA. I haven't even used it yet.

    If you say the answers were deleted it doesn't mean you were the cause of the deletion if you only answered them.

    Yahoo! has been messed up ever since Microsoft bough it. I have also noticed that other sites have been cracking down more lately. For example, I set up a blogger blog and the captcha took me 3 tries to get right.

    Buy a new domain and transfer files to that. Continue using a proxy service. Or just stop using Yahoo Answers since they seem to be getting better about targetting BH'ers.
