    So two days ago I jumped on the yahoo answer train. I made accounts using different ip addresses using tor. When I did the ask a question and answer it myself the first time it worked beautifully, I got tons of converting traffic and made a quick 45$. I've tried recreating this making new accounts with new ip addresses cleared cookies, and ever since the first time Ive tried recreating this scene I cant recreate the same results.

    Yahoo seems to be either deleting the question accounts or the answers, and a few times I have gotten my question/answers to stick but haven't gotten any converts from the posts. The first time I was successful I was using bit.ly shortener links. After I saw my stuff was getting deleted I assumed using the same bit.ly links might have been a problem, so I started directly linking to the site but as Ive said some get deleted some don't.

    So right now i'm really confused to as how to get posts to stick, what was the cause for such high converting traffic the first time I did this.

    As a side question I've been searching for any decent cheap yahoo answer bots. I've run into a couple bots such as a-n-s-w-e-r-e-y-e-s but it has a pretty high price tag for me at the moment, so any suggestions on any bots would also help.

    I've never been a big fan of tor, so I would recommend using private proxies. You probably aren't deleting your flash cookies correctly. Use Fire Fox and get a plug in that deletes everything including flash cookies and you'll have better success.

    Tor just loads up firefox in private viewing mode which automatically starts the browser in private mode which starts with no cookies so I assumed that everything just started blank. do flash cookies get stored somewhere else not associated with the specific browser?

    When you delete your cookies do it with CCleaner. Keep your stats on file. Every post that sticks put your QnA on file. Do the same for your posts that dont stick, be sure to include the I.Ps/Post Date/Acc age in your data. Then just look at the data, it could be alot of variables such as abused I.Ps, Multiple Recurring links, or maybe certain keywords/phrases yanswers is flagging.

    Alright I assumed it was one of those things, didn't know if there could be anymore of a definite answer. So I am using Ccleaner now in between switching accounts, but doesn't using private browsing in firefox starting that back up every time start with a brand new slate of cookies etc..? (just for my curiosity)

    Also as I asked before, any thoughts about yahoo answer bots? :)

    Doing everything manually has worked best for me but I definitely have not tested out all of the available YA bots out there, so there may be a good solution I have not come across yet. You could also have one created for you. Talk to these guys:

    I work with all my Yahoo Answer accounts manually 2. Just after you finish with an account sign out of Yahoo Answers. After that close out your browser & run Ccleaner. Open your browser back up & change your proxy before you enter any yahoo related webpage. After you do it a few times you will get used to it. Ccleaner runs pretty fast unless it is doing a gutnam 35 pass.

    Thing to note about ccleaner is that it doesn't delete yahoo.com and google.com cookies by default.
    Go to "Options" -> "Cookies" and make sure that you move the items from the list "cookies to keep" to the list "cookies to delete"

    The reason some get deleted and some don't is that yahoo answers operates by a flagging system, so some users are quick to flag your questions/answers while others aren't.
