Do you use Yahoo Answers to build backlinks

Discussion in 'Link Development' started by BruceChang, Dec 8, 2010.

    Hello friends,
    Do you use Yahoo Answers to build backlinks? I used it for a while and haven't seen much traffic coming through it. Does the backlinks in Yahoo Answers have any benefit in SEO.
    Please share you insights.

    The last time I looked Yahoo Answer links were nofollow, they can be helpful to get human visitors to your site, if used in a not spammy way, but they don't do much for SEO apart of making your backlink profile looking more natural, SY

    Well i consider it also but i think it helps more on sending niche targeted visitors than seo rankings.

    As someone said above, a few nofollow links help make a more natural backlink profile. I will look into this - thanks.

    I agree that yahoo answers can make your website look unprofessional and spammy

    Why you are so fond of backlinks on yahoo answer. do some real search and create natural links on other theme related websites. That helps

    Yes. I am using yahoo answers to build back links. It is one of the popular question & answer site. So, answering in popular topics will give traffic to your site which you have given in source of the post. It also gives us back links. This, link building will results a immediate change in SERP. To get this benefit try answering in google cache pages & popular topics. Then, you too get better results in search engines from yahoo answers.

    YA is nofollow. That said, if you have a level 2 account, you can get a decent amount of traffic by posting replies to questions related to the services you offer, your website, etc. Rule #1? Don't spam. You'll also get the benefit (sometimes) of having the question appear high in the Google search engine for popular terms. YA tends to rank pretty well with Google.
