Yahoo answers - hyperlink

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by sarahturned, Dec 20, 2009.

    I signed up for Yahoo answers, answered a question and placed my url in the response as it was related to the question.

    My url was not hyperlinked regardless.

    Do you have to answer a certain number of questions before you can put in live urls in your responses?

    Yes, if I remember correctly - you need to have a level of 2 before your URL:s become hyperlinked. That's good since the spam on Yahoo! is enormous.

    If I recall correctly, you need 200 points in order to advance to level 2.

    I think he meant that they will block your URL. That means, that whenever you post the link to a website - the link won't get posted.


    This is how you answer, and leave a link wisely. Simply write a good answer, and leave a link in your source box. Do not do what the other guy did under my answer. He wrote a lot and posted a link within his answer. He will get his answer removed for that!

    Yes, be careful how you post your URL. They will block your email address from posting any answers and will remove all of your previous answers.

    If you post 100 answers with your URL, then you may think that you will get 100 backlinks. You will, but if you get banned, all those answers get removed and you've just wasted your time.

    They aren't "dofollow" back links. They don't really count for anything. Your link will still drive traffic but the conversion rate is pretty poor as you will soon find out. Of course it will depend what you're peddling.

    I know the backlinks are not dofollow. The link will start driving traffic, and believe it or not, but nofollow backlinks can make you rise in the SERP. That is exactly why Yahoo! Answers is so good.
