Many prominent internet marketers recommend using yahoo answers as a means of promotinga website. The idea is that when you search through the questions, you will find somethat you can answer, leaving a link back to your website. But, is this a worthwhilestrategy? In our opinion, no. Yahoo answers isn’t designed as a link building tool ( links areno follow anyway ) – it is a site where people go to receive helpful tips and suggestionsfrom other people who aren’t trying to sell them something. Do you go to yahoo answersto find solutions to problems, or to buy stuff? You wouldn’t like to be sold to whilelooking for your answers, and you would likely distrust the answers of anyone who triedto promote a website, product or service in their response to your question.If you are paying for professional SEO services, make sure that you aren’t paying them to submit linksto yahoo answers – it certainly isn’t the way to market your products or promote your websites. Your time ( and / or money ) would be much better spent on effective linkbuilding methods like press releases, web 2.0 submissions, and article directorysubmissions.
