Why use Yahoo Answers

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by DatingExpert, Feb 19, 2014.

    When it comes to Yahoo users, they are from all back grounds and age groups.
    There are 2 types of Yahoo Answers users.
    1. People who are registered there and use Yahoo Answers to gain more
    knowledge or just to know about new things or simply anything on
    regular basis.
    2. People who come to read and use Yahoo Answers in coincidence. You
    might have experienced yourself while searching for some keywords,
    phrases or something else on Search engines and then in response to
    search made by you, Google has displayed content from Yahoo Answers.
    These people are occasional users of Yahoo Answers.

    It is said that 25 million people use Yahoo Answers alone in United States
    However the regular and occasional users are several times more than this
    around the globe.

    If you are good internet marketer, then you should not ignore Yahoo Answers.
    You should be very natural when using Yahoo Answers.
    Make your answers look like natural.
    Never Spam Yahoo Answers Community.
    Try to contribute to the Yahoo Answers Community.
    When you are good contributor, then you can be marketing your own sites naturally.

    The Yahoo Answers TOS does not allow us to market our own sites, even naturally.

    My Answers were taken down... I believe it was because I was talking about E-Cigarettes and marketed my own website on E-Cigarettes. BTW they don't like E-Cigarettes. lol

    Yahoo answers is a gem in info. Building your reputation in yahoo answers will improve your brand name. You don't have to be found by your website, just build your name.

    I'd say that Yahoo Answer does have potential for Internet marketers, however its quite limited. Being a new brand you'll want to spread the word about yourself on a broad field. Although there are many different methods that are more relevant, Yahoo A. can be a helpful hand. However established brands that want more exposure will hardly benefit. The key is the business niche you are in. Some businesses can easily be involved in many questions, thus working for the ultimate goal, but there are such that cannot use this platform at its capacities. Webhosting is a good example of such.

    The same thing goes about similar services like Quora, and the new Jelly, developed by some of the Twitter geeks. The purpose is clear, it is greatly beneficial for the end user, but not so much for the ones that wanted to use it for advertizing their services.

    I have used yahoo answers. I like answering questions and helping people out but I don't see it as a good venue to promote a website.

    You can try but it has a very limited reach. I would prefer to be active in forums that's related to my niche.

    Thats very true.
    If you do Yahoo Answers correctly and build your name there, you will last for long and will be able to drive lots of traffic to your sites.

    YA is very strict nowadays. Their moderators are keeping an eye with those users who are posting links persistently.

    Yahoo Answer site is very popular because of effectiveness in providing the best answer to the members. Helping other people through this platform is the best way to gain trust and good reputation.

    yahoo answers can be used as part of reach everywhere strategy. Build your brand by giving valuable information to people. It won't be that difficult if you are and expert of your niche. Be sure of your answers. Never try to look smart by answering everything and losing reputation. Your links can be used in between but be sure you use it very rarely and along with other site's relevant links...
    Its bit time consuming process but you can manage to be benefited if you use it effectively

    yahoo answers means knowledge marketing. there are many different categories and subcategories. User are given answer by knowledge. user also asks the question. He/She gain points when he/she gives answer. it divides into 7 level . yahoo give target like 1 level target is 250 point etc. then why we use it answer is that it is just not revenue ad and increase the traffic and promotion of yahoo products

    I tried promoting a Hosting site on Yahoo answers but got no traffic from them. I wonder why a popular site as that of YA gave no traffic to me.

    Yahoo answers is a platform where you answer questions or ask any questions the yahoo community. Yahoo users will answer your questions that's when you get your Answers. At first I didn't understand it but as time went on I found it helpful and you can ask anything that you're not sure of. Hope that answers your question.
