Yahoo Answers Method $200-$400 - Free!

31 replies
Hi friends,
Here I would like to share a method for making affiliate money using yahoo answers. This will look long process but easy to implement and nothing to invest except your effort.Yahoo answers is a good place to promote affiliate or lead oriented products. In the beginning I thought it would be difficult to answer every questions, but I tried a method with little twist I made me a decent earnings from click bank.

I selected a product from clickbank, and I run a keyword analysis in google keyword tool.I got plenty of keywords; I picked those keywords only got search counts 20000. I make a blog in the keyword name.

I put the exact keywords in the title tag and rest of the keywords has pasted in the meta tags, then I head over to ezinearticles.com, I entered every keyword that I have chosen from google tool. In the result page I looked the most viewed article, I picked about 5 to 10 keywords from that article, saved it in a note pad.

I copied the exact article where I picked 10 keywords and made my first post in the blog.
I repeat the same for 3 articles. My blog has 3 posting with related keywords. Now I got 30 relevant keywords which tell about my clickbank product.

I got my clickbank URL for the selected product, and then I went to blog edit html page. I pasted the analytics script above body end tag for tracking the traffic and I pasted this script under title tag for redirecting to the sales page of the click bank product.

save the blog.

Take the 30 keywords, go to yahoo answers and search questions that includes the keywords you selected, such as what is..... (keyword)? Where can I find....(keyword)? does any one using this...(keyword), and so on.

These are the questions produced by the people who are unable to find the solvency for the product or service. Prepare a short answer and make sure it is like a positive review of the general user. And post your blog in the source page. It will look like the relevant site for the question and can avoid ban from yahoo answers.

If any one clicks the blog, that will be redirected to the sales page of the product. Answer in the same manner for 10-20 questions a day for a single product. Repeat the whole process for 2-3 products daily. Surely you can expect 5-10 sales in a week that will fetch you around $200-$400 in a month. I could earn $120.00 in 2 days.


Try it.

    Very nice!

    I've been aware of that plan, and it's tempting to go after it again. I've got to stick to my current plan though....haha.

    I have noticed that just a few answers that I've made actually have produced a decent amount of traffic.

    It is definitely a doable method that works, so every newbie should use this method to start out. It will test your determination and your focus, because answering 10-20 questions a day can easily get tiring. BUT if you stay consistent with it, you will see results.

    Great post!

      If just one person reports you to YA for sending them to a sales site, it'll be checked and your account will be banned.

      Don't say I didn't warn you.

        traceye thanks for your advice. I think you have mistaken this method. While I searching a questions, I will make sure the keywords, if any one chose my answer is best, then the question will get rank in google search, so I can avoid being banned from clickbank as well yahoo answer also. because while searching the keyword, my answer will come first in the google and get natural traffic.

        Yahoo cannot make sure that the source URL is owned by the questioner or the answer, if it is done, nobody can solve the questions raised in yahoo answer. Perhapes the YA is banned, before ban my account, I would make at least 2 sales and I can create another account.

          What I really don't understand is why you want to go to all this work to end up with banned Yahoo Answer accounts.

          You could be creating a valid answer, and offering even more advice in an opt-in offer to get people to sign up on a list. You would be creating a valuable asset, instead of garbage.

          Your method may work, but sure seem like a lot of repetitive work for no long term business gain.

          Build a business, don't play a game.

    Thank you!

    Yahoo Answer is a surefire way to make some fast cash. I have been using it, not only to earn fast cash, but to get #1 ranking for keywords that aren't too competitive. You know, your question and answer can rank #1 too if you have nice keyword density there.

      Bad advice, There is no sure cash. Again my buddy made money on yahoo answer for a 6 months then his account was just suspended. Also , it depends on the niche. The average age of yahoo answers users are 15!! they are looking for free advice which is why they are on yahoo answers. Some niches can make money but these is bad advice for newbies about quick cash..not true!

        Your basing your opinion on what you were told happened by one single person and not based on personal outcomes or events.

    Nice simple method for people who just need to get started in marketing but there are many other ways to make the bigger longterm income and not get banned by yahoo answers too.

    But still thanks and Mr Tan i thought you would be showing your face here and talking about the SEO benefits of yahoo answers too. Good man!

    It's always nice to see people posting their methods... Here is my take on Yahoo Answers...

    I use it as a source to research articles and content for my various blogs. People in your niche are asking questions all the time. Generally, if one person is asking a question, others may have the same question they need answered.

    So if one person asks "How to make chocolate easter eggs in 90 degree weather" and I am in the "chocolate easter egg" niche. I will make that particular question a title for my article/blog post and use the answer as content.

    That way, I will get ranked high in the search engines and not have to worry about my YA account being banned or worry about CTR to my blog.

    Just my take... I use YA for research and easy rankings for niche related long tail keywords.

    This method works but it needs automation.
    To make $200 per day with yahoo answer, focus on huge niches such as weightloss.
    Dont answer questions like: how can I make my cat strong enough so he can fight the turak from the movie avatar.....

    Thousands ask the same dumb questions daily on how to lose weight...start there!

      i used to do this with cpa offers, but yahoo suspended over 10 accounts of mine haha.

      You're better off writing an article on the topic and sending people to that. (with the link to the sales page at the bottom).

      That way only interested people click through anyways and yahoo cant suspend you.

    I'd be careful with how often you post. Another member posted an excellent Yahoo Answers guide in the War Room and he made a good point about only including a link with your post every few answers. Can't remember how many, maybe 1 in 4 of your answers should be used to promote a site.

    The others should be genuine answers. You'll be far less likely to be banned this way.

    A little confused, netbank4all...

    If your blog page automatically is redirecting people to your affiliate link, why bother posting articles in the blog? No one is going to see them. The only reason I can think of is you're trying to increase search engine rankings for your blog, so people will find it and be redirected to your affiliate link? But if your page automatically redirects, doesn't that prevent search engines from indexing your main blog, and perhaps penalizing you for not having a proper "permanent / temporary redirect" in place?

    Seems like a lot of extra work for no purpose...

      Not true!

      I have an account which has only ever given a source link which links to my own content and which makes me money. The trick is just not linking to the same site or page every single time... you can link to an article on a web 2.0 property just as easily as you can link to your main site and you still get the traffic!

      It's not really about being sneaky, providing good answers can help a load and making sure your not too spammy! Yahoo answers is mostly member moderated and the posts only get noticed when someone keeps reporting you to them!

    Hi guys

    bringing up the point of a suspension the terms and conditions on yahoo answers states that you cant send someone to a site outside of yahoo. They are simply cracking down on things because they are sick to death of people spamming the system as a lot of people just post their link as answers on several questions and it is getting out of hand.

    However if you do post on yahoo answers for marketing the best is to offer a great answer and then put the link in the sources part. If 1 person does report you and get you kicked off your answer will NOT be removed your account profile will just go. So you can still get best answer for your question and when you do you can then bookmark it or backlink it. 10 google page rank of 4 backlinks on a best answer will get it number 1 on google for your keyword.

    Here is a good free report for you to use if you want to use yahoo answers for your traffic:

      You can get banned from any site for doing anything marketing wise! Unless your whole marketing method is about asking permission from every single site owner and waiting for their reply before you put your link there then you are not going to get very far.

      Yahoo answers is a bit like leaving blog comments with a url in the url box... very normal if it's relevant!

      Good point there about your post saying, however if it gets rated badly by other users then it will be hiden unless it is chosen as the best answer. So leaving a valuable reply is a very good idea anyway.

    Nice method...unless some of us find you. I got an account that was made way back in 1997. It's at a punny little Level 1, yet...if I report the post, that's all it takes to get deleted. Having a very old account gives you a very nice increase in delete power. If we find your crappy link that points right to clickbank instead of something that has quality (think content.) we'll delete it....and get you banned.

    Better idea: Link to content, then have a text link in there pointing to clickbank. Then we won't delete you!!!

    I ran like a 3 day trial doing this method and didn't get one sale. I answered like 100 questions, got a decent ctr and "best answer", but nobody bought. Maybe it was the offers, maybe it was my answers (they were well thought out and answered, not just "try this product xxx.com/afflinkhere, it worked for me"

    I think I have to agree with most of the others on here when they say its not worth it for the time, the possibility of getting banned, and to REALLY build any long term business potential....maybe a quick buck, but nothing more...

    I'm still not convinced that Yahoo Answers is a good place to make money. I know for a fact it's a good place to get traffic but money, I'm not sure. Traffic does not always = money.

    Have you actually used that method to make money or just sharing something you found?

    I don't see a problem with this method as long as you send them to an article that has a link in it to a redirect to the sales page, instead of redirecting from your source link. Your not sending them directly to the sales page.
