Does anyone know if Yahoo Answers is still blocking HubPages links? I heard they were a lil while back, but not sure if that was accurate info.
not sure but I have heard that posting lots of links in yahoo answer is not a good idea.
yes that's right posting too much links or any links for that matter in yahoo answer is prohibited! if you do this often and they warn you and you keep doing it they will eventually ban you even deactivate your yahoo account!
Don't overdo your link building activity. If you are reported for spamming it will harm you in the long run.
I just checked and my older links are hyperlinked, but have the NoFollow attribute.
I use Yahoo answers mainly for my own websites. Since I have many I can use a different link each time.
I normally answer 5 to 6 questions without a link before throwing one in. No problems yet.
Hmmmm....I do pretty much the same thing (only more like 10 between links) and I appear to have the NoFollow dogs following me. Hmmm...
OK thanks for the feedback on this! I think yahoo is a good answers questions and leave relevant links from time to time as long it's not overdone.

OK I know a lot about links, but somehow I can't make a damn link to turn into a live hyperlink in Yahoo answers! I've done it both ways; just typing in the plain URL, and also using the full a href= code.None of them work. Do you have to post enough before they let your links be live or something?

I think I may have found a solution to the Yahoo Answers problem.They may have blocked Hub links in your answer, but they still allow them on your profile.I noticed someone else referring the questioner to her profile for more information. Sure enough, I can post links in the 'About Me"...

Is it ethically ok to go look for undecided questions in the Yahoo Answers forum that relate to my hubs, then answer the question and give them a link to my hub? Does anyone else do this?

Just wondering if anyone here uses Y!Answers as a traffic source - it's a nofollow link but if you've ever googled a question you'll see there's nearly always a Y~Answer near the top of the first page. Meaning that when people view that page chances are they'll click that link. Good idea or not...
