In order to increase targeted website traffic without delay, for free, you should take advantage of all the possibilities of a very popular website called Yahoo Answers.  It is a high page rank website (PR 8), frequently consulted by many internet users. Perhaps you have already heard about it yet never truly understood its potential. This website accepts all your links without restrictions, even if you are simply promoting affiliate products.

How to use Yahoo Answers

As the name implies, Yahoo Answers is a website where people ask questions and other people answer them. This website is a valuable tool for any writer or entrepreneur to promote their knowledge or services on any given topic. The website is very simple to navigate.

Go to Yahoo Answers and register, then click on the tab Browse Open Questions. Choose your preferred category for answering questions related to your business topic. You’ll see a list of questions including the time each of these questions was posted. Start answering the questions concerning your topic of expertise.

Yahoo Answers gives users the opportunity to post links under each questioned answered. It is best to answer the questions most recently posted because this way you’ll have the chance to be the first one to provide an answer.

No Dialogue and No Delay

You only have to answer a single question citing your sources. You don’t have a dialogue with the person who asks the questions. Therefore, you don’t need to waste your time answering further questions and continue giving further explanations about your answer. Yahoo Answers is not a forum, and it doesn’t have a blog format.

Yahoo Answers Point System

You receive two points every time you answer a question. In addition, you become a known personality at Yahoo for answering questions at Yahoo Answers. When the poster designates your answer as the best response given for the question asked, you will be awarded another 10 points. It is important that you answer the questions directly and stay on topic, otherwise you’ll be reported by other users, and lose 10 points.

Why choose Yahoo Answers over traditional blogs and forum formats?

A good marketing ploy for targeting website traffic is to frequent blogs and forums. They should of course be the ones that are specific to your area of expertise. Make yourself visible, comment and leave your product or services links. However, many times these blogs and forums require an ongoing discussion which is very time consuming for the busy entrepreneur.

At Yahoo Answers you have no obligation to remain at the site longer than it takes to answer each question. You don’t need to follow any particular discussion. This means that you can immediately jump to the next question after answering the first one. You have the opportunity to immediately post your links again and again, without interruptions or needless delay.

Advantages of Using Yahoo Answers

With Yahoo Answers you know that your links are being posted to a website that has a high page rank. This means that they will be displayed on the first pages of the search engines which pop up when internet users type in your main keywords. Also, your personal website’s ranking will improve from receiving back links that come from a website with a high page rank.

The second advantage is that Yahoo will display more questions about your topic as soon as you answer the first one. This feature will enable you to continue answering questions about the topic you have chosen in a quick and efficient way. It is important to note that you must quickly answer the questions before other people do. When your answer becomes one of the last ones posted, there is less of a chance it will be read. Internet users are impatient; they want quick information and they will not read long lists of answers to get what they are looking for.

The third advantage of using Yahoo Answers is the ability to include links with every answer. This free marketing tool ensures that your website will be visited immediately by many people interested in your answer and the promise that you will be able to give them further service or insight. Yahoo Answers receives constant traffic from many internet users. You’ll be impressed with the number of questions that are posted each second on this website, and with the corresponding number of internet users who read the answers to the questions and would like more information.

Besides the advantage of getting instant targeted website traffic without any expense, your answers remain online. These answers will send traffic to your website each time that an internet user is interested in the answers you gave to other people. In time, the links provided under your older answers will gradually increase the targeted internet traffic to your website.

Avoid spamming 

Yahoo Answers gives you the chance to post links as long as they are related to your answer and complete the information you are providing. However you should not post more than two or three links per answer. Otherwise, you may be considered a spammer.

The key to success with Yahoo Answers is to give short on-topic answers to questions related to your expertise, and to do it as quickly as possible. This will ensure your top ranking, and your chances of receiving traffic from many other internet users interested in the same answer.

The more questions you answer, the more of your personal links you can post, and the more exposure you will get from this service. There is no limitation on the number of questions you can answer. It will largely depend on your time schedule, your motivation for exposure and recognition in your field, and your desire for passive income.
