    Hi
    Last night I thought I would test yahoo answers, and what I was doing was searching the employment section, where people were looking for online work.
    I would reply something like I was in your shoes bla bla bla, but now im making a good income, check out my link.
    The link went to my squidoo landing page with my affiliate link in it. I thought I was doing ok, I was getting visits to my landing page, then it suddenly stopped. I get mail from yahoo, saying my account is suspended for violating there terms. And there pointing to my replied ads.
    So is this my competition flagging my ads?
    If so how could I get round this?
    I see people doing exactly what I was doing yet they are getting away with it?
    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks
    Si

    I know how you feel, trust me. The only times I get suspended on YA is when I post to work at home/work online. (Never fails) It just got to the point that I don't post answers on the subject anymore and guess what? Never had an account suspended since.

    It's not your fault, retarded IM intentionally flags your post, like it's gonna make theirs look any better.

    Just create a new account, and get back to business, if you truly make a good income out of it ;)

    well I hadnt actualy made anything, but it looked promising, and if my replies would of stuck i would of had more visitors to my landing page. I did post in other sections it looks like they didnt get flagged, so Ill keep on trying.
    BTW, how long is suspension any ideas?
    Ill just create a new account for now though

    Had a few friends and students report the same thing. Have a feeling the previous poster is prob right some stupid IM'er reporting your answer. Trouble with a lot of web2.0 sites it is easier for them to ban an account than look into whether a complaint is correct.

    Starting a new account is what they did and everything is back to normal with them

    Don't put your link in the answer, put it in the resource box. You need to log on and answer some questions (maybe 5 or so) before you ever put your link in the resource box. Build up your account by answering some questions just to help out. Give it some time before you start posting your links.

    Billw is correct use the resource box I was suspended for 2 seconds then i used one of my hundreds of yahoo accts and do it again. You really got to learn to move on quickly.oh and if you like yahoo answers for your personal email or what have you do NOT use it to "spam" give your ads to....
