    Yahoo answers help only if they are done in bulk. Atleast >20 daily.. then you can give your link in the answers..

    Yahoo Answers has nothing to do with SEO as well as in promotions because this kind of reputable website focuses on helping the users in their query and very strict when it comes to linking.

    Agreed. And the Answers TOS does not allow things like advertising and self promotion.

    Yes, I agree with what @eric_wahlberg has said that Yahoo Answers has nothing to do with SEO as these type of big sites doesn't allow linking to other sites and from my personal experience on my site great grand masti I can say that don't rely on yahoo answers for seo.

    Yahoo answer have no relation with SEO. Its a special feature of yahoo to help the user and to get traffic. Yahoo benefit is main things here by customer support as I think.

    Yahoo answers help only if you done in bulk, like 1000 point. Then you can give your link in the answers.

    Yahoo links are no-follow so that don't add much value to your SEO but they can only bring visitor to your website

    As far as I know, Yahoo Answers can help you target a specific audience, but is not popular than other tools of increasing traffic like SEO. You can use an option of asking questions, for example "What is ***** and how does it work?" You can find there answers on any subject and topic! And here are some benefits of Yahoo Answers:
    1. Target marketing;
    2. Generates more traffic to your website;
    3. Prevents spamming.

    Yahoo answers are actually a greatly underused way to get inbound links to your website, so by using them regularly you can create a very useful and relevant community around you. Also, it should me mentioned that yahoo answers help to get more traffic to your website!

    I have been using yahoo as well as yahoo answers for quite a while, but other than having and sharing a good experience with others, I dont think it help you well with your SEO. I have posted a link in my profile description, which is under the bio in the Quora, but it has not got me much of a benefit.

    Yahoo Answers is probably best for Branding your website. I don't see it as very effective for SEO, as search engines are very smart these days about who is doing what to get backlinks.

    I think Quora is much better than Yahoo. At least, it gets better traffic than that.

    How do you do your SEO in Quora? Do you just answer some question then post your link? ( that is something I think unethical ) Or is there other way?

    Yahoo Answers is good for driving traffic to your website. I think you need to be a high level before you can post linkable links. All links are nofollow but can certainly get you traffic if placed on the right thread.
