    I think you should level up first by getting some best answers. Then every link you put will be dofollow that improves PR of a page. Otherwise they"ll be nofollow.

    Yahoo Answers is dying, There are days (2007-2010) When people used to get a lot of traffic from Yahoo answers,
    Back then, they had a level system, when you reach a level, the links you leave were made hyperlinks (clickables) which made a lot of curious people click and land on the website.

    It doesn't work anymore because there are many other websites (Quora) that offer quality answers.

    Few people might be getting some traffic from Yahoo but I don't think there is any value given to the links in terms of the SEO (specially in Google)

    Yahoo Answers also does not allow people to promote their sites, blogs, etc. If you do, you run the risk of having your account closed.

    It doesn't improve your pagerank. All links are no-follow and, given the quality of Yahoo answers, Google is unlikely to place any value on links from them. However, Yahoo answers itself appears highly in search results. It's possible that you can gain a nice amount of traffic from the site and other similar sites.

    It is not a effective means of advertising your website or increase PR. If you want a effective means to securing targeted traffic is with paid search, social media etc.

    Quora is your best option today. And they allow you to post links too.
