    Hi,

    About a month ago, Yahoo answers team has changed default sorting of answers from Rating (based on number of thumbs up) to Relevance based on - something that i dont understand :(

    I though that i can simply put as many keywords from a question to my answer as possible to get my answer to the top (below "best answer" chosen by question owner), but it doesnt work for me. I saw some people are copying whole question and inserting it do their answer again to make it more relevant - doesnt work for my as well and some answers are even being hidden because of this.

    Does anybody know how to make my answer the most relevant so it would sit on top? It makes a HUGE difference in traffic if my answer (with my link) is first or somewhere down...

    thanks
