Is anyone making money with Yahoo Answers ?
I am wondering if Yahoo answers offers contributors an opportunity to earn since I saw someone who has answered 50k questions. Does it have any economic motivation ?
When I go on YA I always leave my HP profile page address as the source page. I only get about 50 PV through my profile page, but at least I am helping some of the dog owners that need the info I have written (hubs) about.
You have a lot of great information so if you do go on there, I would suggest you not bother telling anyone you are a vet. They will just make derogatory comments (such as "no vets are on this site"). I answer the question and leave my address. Some others sign "DVM", vet tech, or "CVT" but who can prove it, in this age of the internet?
I myself have used Yahoo answers for certain niches that needed answering and link back to my work that is related to the question they asked. It allowed me to reach 30,000 views on one of my YouTube videos. So it can in turn help you make more money, depending on where you link it. But make sure you do not link back to your content no more then 2-3 times a day. Otherwise you risk getting banned and possibly losing all of your questions, and answers.

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"...

I have a suggestion. Lately, I've been participating in Yahoo Answers. I try to answer any question I have a thought about, especially those that I have experience with. I have answered several questions that coincidently have hubs about similar topics, and in my answer, I provide the tracking link...

Hi, I have been writing here for about a month and am looking for ways to increase traffic. I read somewhere that answering on Yahoo Answers and posting a link to a relevant hub can be a good way to increase traffic. Does this actually work that well? I'd be really interested in hearing people's...

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?

Ok, so I haven't gotten that aweful 999 error in MONTHS! and now, it seems there are so many perfect questions to post my links too, and I'm getting the 999 error! Anyone else having this problem? I was getting ok traffic from them, enough for my to be frustrated by this. Plus, like I said, today...
