Share on:

Yahoo Answers – can you get traffic with Yahoo Answers? Let’s explore three steps to succeed in online business when using Yahoo Answers. Yahoo Answers is a truly powerful platform that most online businesses are not aware of. If you follow these three simple steps you will be able to generate leads, increase traffic and even build a responsive mailing list, all for free and with as little as half an hour of your time each day.


Joining Yahoo Answers may be one of the best marketing decisions that you ever make. Not only is it free to use but is one of the best ways to connect with people in your niche and learn from them and also help them. Part of the process of helping these people is to educate them into wanting your products and services. Here's how to do this:

Step 1 - Join Yahoo Answers and start answering questions that people are looking for that will relate directly to your products and services

Step 2 - Develop a positive relationship with these people and provide quality answers that truly solve some of their problems will adding additional solutions to the links that you will be using in the resource boxes attached to your yahoo account

Step 3 - Ask them to subscribe to the specific advice that you are trying to help them with explaining that you can further elaborate on the solutions that you can provide for them


The idea behind this whole process is that people are constantly searching for answers to problems. They go to places like Yahoo Answers mobile or computer based because they're looking for expertise and best Yahoo Answers threads. You position yourself to provide this expertise you will gain insight into your market, friends, people looking for more detailed solutions and of course leads that are interested in your products and services.

The key is to provide good answers that will partially solve someone's problem. When these people follow through by clicking on the links in your resource box ensure they are driven to the exact answer that they need which will provide them once they join your mailing list. The good news about this is that Yahoo Answers app actually encourages this (ensure you never tried to directly sell anything to anyone) as long as you links provide real solutions for people.

Once these people have joined your mailing list you're free to advertise and market to them in ways that will further help them and of course allow you to work your business.

That's it! By solving people's problems you also gain respect in the community and be able to ask more questions, which will then generate more traffic, more people signing up to your mailing lists in an ongoing supply of fresh leads. All of this is 100% free. There is of course a learning curve to all this and you must follow Yahoo Answers.com terms of service, policies etc.

The single most important thing to consider is that somebody took the time to ask the question because they genuinely wanted an answer. What may seem like simple advice to you could be something very complicated and difficult for the person who asked the question. Think about it. A biochemist could easily solve complicated formulas yet most of us would be scratching our heads on how to do the simplest of these equations.



If you are willing to commit yourself each day, take the time to write a respectful reply to a question, and then you will find that this will allow you to develop relationships that will continue to build a direct connection to help you grow your business.

Most people who are trying to drive more traffic to their website can simply do this by answering questions in a field that they already know about. The idea is to build people's trust and faith in your responses to them. In order for respect to be given it must be earned first. You don't have to like it but it is the way that the community and Yahoo wants it done.

And the reality is if it were you asking the question would you want someone to devote a reasonable amount of time to answer? Especially if we're dealing with something technical that could require further elaboration. This does not mean you have to give them the entire answer but just enough of the answer to ensure that the problem could be solved and then leave them wondering if the link in your resource box will also answer their question in further detail.

So what is the best kind of advice to give?

1. Answer someone's question to the best of your ability
2. Provide detailed examples and insurer that the examples you give are truthful
3. Explain how they can get additional information by simply contacting you
4. Provide further detailed information in the link in your resource box

If you post the answers and websites for more information then you should try it.
Don't spam, provide value in your answers.
Good luck

Try to space out your links you send back to your site, by answering some questions with no links, and others with links to different websites.
Also, never put a link within your answer, always in the resource box.

In the niches that I work in, so long as I provide an informative response to visitor's questions, I can count on receiving traffic from Yahoo Answers.
The traffic takes time to build up to anything useful. So, if you are using this as your only means of generating traffic, I would considering adding other sources to the mix.

I tried it but I found it was a lot of work for little results. You better spend that time on traffic sources that give you a better ROI in time and money. I'm giving away a 100% free 2,5 hour video course that learns you many ways to drive FREE traffic to your website or offer. I'm sure this helps a lot of people find their way to more free traffic!

I am 100% aligned with this approach. Focusing on quality traffic is really important and often neglected!

Yahoo Answers has become like the new Wikipedia on the Internet. It is also one of the biggest information sharing communities in the world. In the USA alone there are over 20 million users. It doesn't matter what kind of question you ask there is usually someone who will answer. Everyone knows a little bit about something. Each of us has different knowledge base and Yahoo Answers knows this.

Consider how this amazing tool opens up the way for more professional businesses to communicate to other people and eventually create new streams of traffic to their website. Many of us are already aware that the Internet has become a huge social meeting place. People are tired of pushy salesman and ridiculous promises and want to speak with a real person and get a fast, friendly and realistic answer from other people they perceive as either experts in their field or someone has gone to the same things they're going through. It's just the way things are and Yahoo Answers helps provide this valuable service to its members.

One of the most attractive features of Yahoo Answers is that it's free to use! The trick is to build up relationships with people in a way that develops their confidence in what you are saying. This is done by answering tough questions in a specific niche that you are involved in, and delivering real solutions that people need.

Spamming will only see you being banned from the forums. Many people do try to spam Yahoo Answers. It doesn't work in the community polices itself and people that are trying to simply put a bunch of cells links up find themselves quickly banned; this is a shame because if they spent a little more time marketing properly to people and providing real quality the same effort would be rewarded handsomely.

Yahoo Answers have rules that you must play by and if you choose not abide by the rules, then be prepared for people on the forums to complain. You will be permanently banned and find yourself making up new Yahoo E-mail accounts. There are better ways to bring new sources of traffic to your business without being pushy or aggressive to other people.

The Yahoo Answers forums are full of categories that you can choose to look through. In a short period of time you can become an expert in your field by simply answering people’s questions. However there is a trick to this so take the time and involve yourself in the learning curve and within a few weeks you can have steady traffic promoting just about anything you desire.

It just takes a little time and persistence on your part to become recognized and respected. Once people trust you they are more inclined to buy products and or services from you.
