Make Money With Yahoo Answers – Q & A Responses

Yahoo AnswersIn my post the other day Make Money With Yahoo Answers, I had stated that I would be open for a Q & A session. I have received all the questions and will answer them now based on my experiences and speculations I have.

Question 1. When answering your questions do you send them to the
CPAs direct link? Or are you making a landing page
with the link on it?

Looks like a strategy based question from someone who looks serious on implementing with Answers :). Based on my own experience I have not used landing pages. In the beginning, I was sending traffic to my own sites with a my domains. Since using this with lead generation networks, all I really do is use a generic domain and make a sub-domain on it. I then setup redirection for the subdomain via CPanel. This is the fastest way for me to handle it, and the staff member who I have working there just has a set of links to the various offers, making their job easier to answer questions.

Question 2.  Are you seeing what other people are asking and then
ask the same type of questions?

In a way yes and in a way no. I am a really quick learner, but I have also been in the industry a bit now and I feel I have a pretty good understanding on what will work and what will not, before I even try it. If your going to go that route, you could probably phrase your questions a bit differently, and still achieve a popular amount of answers, granted that the question you had just researched was a popular one.

Question 3. When answering other people questions are you sending
them with an affiliate link?

I have answered that above already, but I feel you are feeling like you might face trouble. It’s really easy to redirect sub-domains off a generic domain name. In a sense, yes I am sending them thru an affiliate link, but only after they pass thru my sub-domains. This allows me to keep traffic stats and see how many people are coming from there. :)

Question 4. Are your question email addresses always your question
email addresses and your answer email addresses always
your answer email addresses?

I was actually waiting on this question. Here is exactly what my staff does in relation to the question. The accounts used for questioning will often at times go to other questions involving the same niche or general audience. They answer other people’s questions and provide the source link.

Here is how it all ties together:

  • Question accounts ask questions and wait for response from Answer accounts
  • Answer accounts respond to the question accounts with a link to — (wherever)
  • Question accounts waits a bit for other answers as well ( 3-5 at least)
  • Question accounts awards my answers account as top answer
  • Question accounts also answer other questions in relation to the questions they asked
  • Answer questions do the same as well

Now when questions accounts answer others, they so in a manner like this:

Hey, I just asked a question pretty close to what your asking and I had a really cool and informative response. Luckily, the poster was able to provide a link to the source. I have tried it, and it was really good. Wondering if you have seen it and tried it yet? If so, could you share your experience with it? I would be greatly appreciated.

See what I did there? A little bit of psychology and I referred to my own question. Now, I am gonna get traffic to my own questions and answers, but I have also encouraged people to provide feedback on the link. In order for them to do that, they must complete the offer. :)

Question 5. I guess I need to hang out in Yahoo Answers to see how
they operate. Is this the only place this will work or
are there other sites out there similar to Yahoo

It is in my understanding of rumors that maybe Google and Windows Live may have something coming as well. For now though, you can find tons of people asking the same questions in Answers as you can forums all over the net. A simple search in Google with the niche keywords and “forum” will lead you to the forum. From there, all I really do is utilize the search features of the forum. I check by subject lines. This gives me the exact title of their post. If you find more questions, then there ya go!

Question 6. You said not to abuse it so what limits do you use?  Meaning, you have 25
accounts that ask questions.  im pretty sure you spread those accounts out to ask
questions in different niches right?  if not, then how many accounts do u use to ask
questions in one category?

I cannot really tell you the limits. I have staff that operate this part of my online business, and every month it is different. If you go in there spamming links to every question, then that’s a good indication of abuse. Yes, I spread the accounts out into different niches. 25 Questions accounts and each one asks THEIR own questions. :)

Question 7. When you answer with the other accounts, i assume you use a few of them to give
you good reviews and to say that the survey was great and what not.  then in their
answers you give out the link again?  or would that be too much?

Survey? Just really depends on what your answering. Let’s say you find a bunch of Paris Hilton questions, then yea I would tell them about the survey a bit and the gift (whatever it may be) that they offer for the free zip submit. Knowing the offer ins and outs is a big key, that way you will know how to respond intelligently and add more content to your answers.

Question 8. You mentioned that you would only do this like on a weekend or something for a
few hours.  so that means you try not to do it too much and so is it a good idea
just to hit it like once a month or something?  if so, do you have your accounts
periodically just answer regular questions here and there?

Yes I have been dedicating an Article Writer of mine to handle this on a weekend. This really was not planned this way, until the article writer asked for more work. He’s a super writer, and I am super busy. If I kept him writing articles, then I would have just been burying myself. This way, the situation worked out great for both of us. He gets a portion of the Revenue now, and eventually when he gets the hang of it totally, he will probably move on and do it himself, if he’s not already. For right now, he has been spending about 10-12 hours on it in a month. Which is a lot, if your an experienced writer, and he is:).

I think you can definitely get yourself a routine setup. I would say with that asking one question a week per Question accounts and having your answers accounts hitting them back is cool. I really do not know, as I can only report what I do specifically. I hate to tell you something, then you go do it, and it turns out to be too much.

Question 9.
Can you make more videos like this?  I luv it when u make your videos because it
gets me thinking of other ways to make money online.  Tactics that you throw away or
don’t really use are the ones that i want, you may think they are not worth it but to
someone like me who is looking for this thing to avalanche on me, i will try and do
anything to make that money and take care of what i got to.  I know some people take
this as a hobby but I’m trying to make this my WORLD!  There is no other way to make
a living than doing IM.

You bet your sweet ass I am gonna make more videos. As a matter of fact, I have pretty much decided that at least half my content is going to be video. I was at a crossing point as to whether I want to charge a bit for my tactics, but I am not going to. If I do something special and actually put it into a report or something, then I might charge. I will not rule out that possibility. As for right now, the name of the blog is Cash Tactics and that is the way it is. I absolutely cannot wait to see how many WSO’s and info products are going to be made from my content. It hurts, but then again I know I kicked ass at it, so I get some freaky sense of accomplishment from it.

Question 10. Last question.  Can I be your apprentice?  lol, i will ask you this forever and

Unfortunately I am trying to stay away from taking on apprentices. I do take on various people for projects and things like that, but as far as full blown mentor-ship, I think it would be a bad idea. I would hate to mentor someone then find out later, that I simply did not have the time. I would rather blog here, share openly and answer as many questions as I can.

Question 11. Why are you so good looking?

LMAO…A little off topic, but all I can say is God worked overtime on my birthday:).

Question 12. Is that serious what Jason Moffatt was blogging about?

Absolutely 100%. Jason’s friend Cy was in a domestic altercation it sounds like and she was basically left with less than nothing. I personally donated her $250. There is a post on the Warrior Forum right now, if you would make a contribution, it would be greatly appreciated by everyone. I know John Reese popped in there and donated $1,000. That just shows you that a rich, busy guy as he is will take the time and help others in need. Even though everyone is spread out like stars in the galaxy, in the end we are still people.

 Alright everyone, thanks for the questions and hope I was able to clear some things up. There’s more to it than that I am sure, but I provided my own testing and techniques so nobody would be led astray. Might keep your eyes peeled tonight thru tomorrow though. I am getting ready to throw down on YouTube . I am gonna put out another video on some techniques I have been using to leverage that nasty bad boy. Until then…Peace!

Great Q&A post! It solves some of my problems too :)

Even though we are setting up different accounts with different email addresses, won’t Yahoo recognize that the question and answer are coming from the same IP Address?

Tonight I logged out of one account and logged into another, but I wasn’t allowed to continue. Instead, I got the following error notice:

“Sorry, Unable to process request at this time — error 999.
Unfortunately we are unable to process your request at this time. This error is usually temporary. Please try again later.

If you continue to experience this error, it may be caused by one of the following:

You may want to scan your system for spyware and viruses, as they may interfere with your ability to connect to Yahoo!. For detailed information on spyware and virus protection, please visit the Yahoo! Security Center.
This problem may be due to unusual network activity coming from your Internet Service Provider. We recommend that you report this problem to them.”

Is this a problem? And if it is, how do we work around it?

I have been practicing this strategy over the last two years. Though I have shared this practice with my friends I couldn’t find time to write a post on it. I am very glad to see your post. This is an efficient money making way that everyone could easily follow.
