I'm currently at the first user level in Yahoo Answers so the links I include in answers and cite as sources aren't made active.

When I pass to the second level - and my links become active - will that only apply to links in new answers? Or will the links I'm posting now become active?

    You should ask Yahoo support about that.

    all your links will become clickable. Even the ones you did in the past when you were level 1

    Am in second level now... Your link will be clickable when you reach level 2... But it will be no follow link only....

      That shouldn't matter though right? people will still click on the link; so you get traffic; good targeted traffic if in the right category.

        That is exactly right - the real benefit of Yahoo Answers is the targeted traffic it drives, not the link juice.

    All of your link will be activated after getting level 2. Yahoo answers links are nofollow. Yahoo answers link will help you to get targeted traffic.

    Your URL will be added to all the previous answers. Btw, Yahoo answers can prove to be a great source to generate some traffic to your niche.

    though yahoo answer is nofollow backlink but it helps lot to get visitors to website, even when we search in Google by keyword or by asking some questions we find yahoo question and answer in the first page, So its a great way to get visitors for long time.
    but I am writing this reply not for advertising the yahoo answer but alert you some facts about yahoo answer.
    I had a level 2 yahoo account and my account has been banned because of advertising a client's website. As the same many level 2 users have been banned. Once the account is banned it will never be activated. So be careful about your answers.
    1. Don't answer for advertising your site, answer it for giving perfect solution to the questions.
    2. Don't give irrelevant answer or website to the questions.
    3. Never ever copy answers from others and try to avoid giving the same resources.
    4. Leave the question if anyone give the same answer past that you want to give.
    5. Be describe about your answer and make it unique.
    best of luck

    I have a level 3 YA account, and I just checked it out: all my answers are with clickable links. Both when cited as sources and included into the body of the answer.

    So your level 1 efforts will pay off!
