    Hey guys, thought i might share my technique of combining any tool for yahoo answers ( e.g. Answer Swipe or Answer Assault) with Scrapebox.

    One thing i always noticed is that most of the tools do harvest the questions but you get a really low number of questions and you would have to keep adding kw's one by one.

    Here is a quick technique to speed things up a little bit :)

    1. Add your niche kw's to Scrapebox and head over to the kw scraper in sb
    2. Scrape kw's from various sources but don't go any deeper than level 1 ( in order to be sure that you get only accurate quetions which are exactly what you are looking for in your niche
    3. After you finish harvesting, remove the dupe kw's and transfer them back to the main kw list
    4. In the custom footprint box add: site:answers.yahoo.com
    5. Start Harvesting

    Now, after you finish harvesting you would probably get a lot of results and you don't want to go through them manually to determine which ones are still open for answers so you will be doing this.

    1. Fire up the Scrapebox Page scanner addon and click on edit footprints
    2. In the footprint box add the following footprint:
    Code:
    <li class="selected">Open Question</li>
    ...click on Add Entry and name it as "yahoo open" or something like that
    3. Hit close and go back to the page scanner and import your url's from Scrapebox harvester and start checking for open question.
    4. Export your list, clean it by removing the ones whcih are not labeled as open.

    Now you have a huge list of open questions, niche related which you can post answers to :)

    Amazed so few have responded to this. Great way to get some decent links with a little authority trickle-down attached using a very simple method.
    Nice summary of a sound technique.

    But who will save the answers from the YA moderators. They will be deleted within 2-3 hours :p
    So all efforts will be wasted.

    Coming through with the goods :) Cheers mate. Nice method. YA can bring some great targeted traffic. Yes moderators are a pain, but if you can make your link stick, that's golden.

    Thx guys, glad you liked it :) , this can be used in more than one ways, regardless if it is for driving traffic or promoting your own offers :)

    Scrapebox will help you harvest huhdreds of niche related questions which you can then later use yahoo answers tools to post answers to :)

    Well, in order not to have your answers flagged, I would highly suggest heading over to fiver and getting a few level 2 accounts. There are several people there, I bought 5 for $5 and they are still very much alive. I posted about 4 weeks ago, and checked a couple days ago with the free backlink checker from sb which can be downloaded straight for the sb website. The links are very much alive. Now of course bot tools which i mentioned AS and AA have spintax, so you can spin your answers. Same deal as with comments :). The more substantial longer your answers are the lower the chances are they will be removed.

    Plus with 1 level 2 account you can post 80 answers per day which would mean with 5 you would be able to post 400, 10 days 4000, 30 days 12000. This should bring in a very decent amount of traffic. I hardly believe you would be able to post 12k but you can always get new level 2 accounts :)

    Yahoo Answers is not a new born baby that will let you spam like hell.
    I really liked your approach with Scrapebox but buying a lots of yahoo accounts will only added to your expense, you won't take benefit from it.

    I agree that it isn't a new born baby. It would all depend on your approach and what it is that you will try to promote. I was able to use 5 yahoo level 2 accounts on posting about 2.3 k answers before they got flagged. However, the accounts got banned but the answers are still there, because i am checking for the backlink which was dropped with Scrapebox backlink checker.

    If you do your strategy right, what you invest in accounts, is far less than what you will earn from it.
