    Promoting your site on Yahoo Answers also violates the Answers TOS.

    So we have some say NO, and some (well, one) saying YES...which is it? I personally hate Yahoo Answers, but if there are some advantages to using I would certainly love to know about them.

    Yahoo Answers are monitored very closely, so any sign of you advertising your site then they will ban you.
    It is good Answer pages appear high up in the Search Rankings so they get a lot of exposure, but you need to be careful if your going to put your link in your answers, it will need to be 100% relevant to the question and take you directly to the page about the question not just your home page.

    No, yahoo answer does not support to promote your back links. Better don't make a try! Because, if you do so, your account will be ban!

    Yes i tried to make some backlinks in yahoo answers, but they banned me within a week... :cool:... so after that i never tried to make any backlinks there. well yahoo answers is a good platform to track traffic by answering questions. But promoting your own site is risky.. n chances are you will get banned shortly.

    Yahoo Answers don't give you backlinks (anchored ones at least). But usually if your answer becomes the "Best Answer" and the question is a highly-asked one, there's a possibility of creating a good source of direct traffic for your sites.

    Yahoo answers backlink help to diversify your website backlink profile, which is quite essential after Google penguin update. But if you violates their term and cond, your account will be banned permanently. So you have to take appropriate steps so that your answers does not violate their rules.

    Yes, by answering a question you can site a source and place a backlink on the page. The backlink is nofollow so it is worthless.. Besides, most of the time you will get banned for promoting your site so it is a waste of time for 2 reasons.

    I think Yahoo answers gives a backlinks on a keyword when you reach good rankings and Yahoo will also get accurate search results.

    No Yahoo Answer do not give link on a keyword, Yahoo answers gives no-follow back links. It dose mean that your answer can be shown in SERP pages. And you could get good number of visitors from Yahoo Answers back link. But a search engine's spider will not cache your site from that link.
