    they are nofollow, however a great source of traffic and a potential for secondary links (your site is introduced to third parties that may end up linking to you with dofollow links).

    Posting links on yahoo answers is good for targeted traffic, but make sure you don't post links to your site(s) in the answers too much or they could ban you. I've heard of this happening to several people

    Yes, yahoo answers use nofollow value on links but it can be a good source of traffic provided that your answers are well-explained and informative...

    What do you think. They are nofollow! Yahoo would never let them to be dofollow cos spammers would spoil the service.

    How ever it is a good source of traffic.

    Yahoo! Answers no doubt can provide us very good source of traffic. These traffic is highly targeted. However, the downside for links in Yahoo! Answers is, they are nofollow.

    Yes, they are nofollow
    But, as far as I'm aware, it will increase your search results in Yahoo
    But no other SE
    This is because yahoo dont care about no/dofollow
    A link is a link in yahoo

    All you have to do is look at the source code to determine nofollow links

    To make sure, you can view the Page source and look at the code to find HTML link if a link is Nofollow or not? Yahoo answers use Nofollow links that will help improve the target site’s search engine rank.
