    Do they even have any value backlink wise? And does google even count them as backlinks if the url is not hyperlinked?

    No one knows. If it's not hyperlinked some people still think it has value.
    Though I think Yahoo Q&A is hyperlinked, but I believe it's no follow.
    Again some think no follow have no value, while some think it does.
    More importantly you should be aiming for the traffic from the Q&A rather than the link value.

    Yea I know but I'm mostly scared of getting a penalization since I'm using BuzzBundle and getting loads of contextual backlinks. (loads 10-15 daily)

    I guess it is for direct traffic and not for backlinking. Gurus might disagree :D

    Yahoo Answer is NOFOLLOW, Google will not count as backlink. But Yahoo answer is good source of traffic.

    Yahoo links will not get you penalized

    ER, No...

    The links are generally no-follow, but but I often see do follow links from YA.

    Either way they still count as a link.

    I'm sure making too many of them will get me penalized since its a fairly new domain

    I don't see them for backlinks anymore, but the quality traffic that comes with it helps with a lot conversions.

    You are too new to consider any backlinking... let that slide for a while.

    In IM we are building Rome and Rome was not built in a day so slow your backlinking roll.

    instead of worrying about them being backlinks just use them as traffic sources.

    Search engines will se this as you participating in your niche online. Unless you just go absolutely nuts or link from questions not related to your niche, they will not hurt.
