PROMOTION : Using Yahoo answers as a promotional tool

Yahoo Answers gets around a billion visitors and practically all of them want to know an answer to their questions? These types of people are an Internet Marketer's dream - highly motivated laser targeted visitors, yet still most marketers are not using Yahoo Answers correctly.

Therefore this article will show you how you can use it to increase your web site traffic so you can get these targeted customers right to your website front door.

Obviously the first thing you need is an account with Yahoo Answers, and then you need to start answering questions.

Do a search for questions in your niche and find those ones that haven't been closed yet. Most questions are open for four days so you'll have plenty of time to find a bunch of questions to write a reply to.

Choose around 10 or so questions that you'd like to answer and only put your link in the resource box in 2 of them.

Why don't you put your link in all your answers?

Well Yahoo hates spammers and if you start putting your link in every answer you give you'll send out warning bells.

It's best to be safe the sorry. So only choose a few to put your link into and the rest just write short quick answers to balance things out.

I always like to answer in different categories too - to make it look more natural - rather than just answering in the one category.

Your overall goal will be to get best answers for those questions that you gave your link to, so try and write a really good response for those ones. You'll get the most website traffic from those questions that you get best answer for because your response will be at the top of the page and most readers don't ready past the first reply.

Of course there are many other considerations that you need to take to make this strategy work best for you - but if you follow them correctly you'll start getting masses of Yahoo answers traffic
in no time.
