    Yahoo Answer helps you in the following ways:
    [1] You build your expertise in related topic to your site, which is a great benefit and gives you an edge
    [2] You get links to your website as you refer your site as a reference read to your reply
    [3] The MOST IMPORTANT thing is that Google now considers the number and variety of authority sites, refer your Site as reference, to rate and rank your website. In this point Yahoo Answer plays a vital role which you cannot ignore.

    I think Yahoo answer is still good for search result though it provides nofollow backlinks.

    From my own experience it's great for referral traffic. Doubt it would improve your rankings.

    Usually, the main aim of question / answer sites provide a solution for questioner. So, clean your mind about promotion activity and try to solve the issue. If you found that your product or service or article is the solution of questioner then you can make reference link. I recommend always think to increase referral traffic to your website, not for backlinks.

    You will get the link from the source box from Yahoo Answers.

    ,
    Yahoo answers are a great way to get traffic on your site it will not help in backlinks because is a no follow site, So it wouldn't help with ranking.

    You will get SEO benefit. If you are driving targeted traffic to an article on your site. This means more visitors. If you are getting more visitors on a page, then lets says an article ranking above you. You will be nudged up the serp. In my experience, more traffic=more traffic! Even though they are no follow links.

    Yahoo Answers would automatically turn any back link into a no-follow back link.
    Would it give value to your website? Yes and No. Yes, your website would have more online presence / publicity (means you would increase your organic traffic from there) , provided it is mentioned under a relevant topic. No, your website would not benefit from no-follow back link. But I have heard from my colleagues and from Matt Cutts that it is good to have both do-follow and no-follow back links gradually, because it shows the website has been gaining its popularity organically.
