The fact that yahoo answers is the biggest question and answer site out there, and that thousands of people visit Yahoo Answers everyday, makes Yahoo Answers a powerful tool that almost anyone can use to make money. Here is a step by step plan on how to make money using yahoo answers:
Select a profitable niche
Pick a niche hat is profitable. A subject that is hot and has a lot of people interested in it. Niches like online money making, weight loss, diet, forex are some of the most profitable niches out there. Of course, they are some of the most competitive ones as well. So, when choosing your niche, keep that in mind. The best way to do this, is to chose a niche you are passionate about and or have some knowledge about it that is popular, but not to competitive.
Select a CPA offer
For those of you who aren’t familiar with CPA, CPA stands for Cost Per Action. It means every time someone who you sent to the offer page, takes the required action, it could be entering an email address, zip code, or subscribing to a trial or what have you, you get a commission. To learn more, read What is CPA.
In this step you have to find an offer to promote on Yahoo Answers. This is how you will be making your money using Yahoo Answers. You will be promoting CPA offers. If you aren’t already registered with a CPA network, sign up for a few. I personally use maxbounty and CommissionJunction.
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
Pick offers that don’t require too much action. Offers that convert easier. Email offers, zip code offers are the best ones. These offers are simply offers that the person who you sent to them has to only enter and submit their email address or zip cod, in order for you to get a commission. Its much easier to get people to enter an email address or a zip code than asking them to buy something. Of course, this product has to be related to the niche you picked in the first step. The offer you choose can have a direct effect on whether you make money using Yahoo Answers or not.

Find questions related to the offer
Use yahoo answers custom search feature and find questions related to your niche and the offer you are promoting. You want to customize your search so the results will include only open questions. Obviously because a resolved question will not do you any good.
Start answering question related to your niche and the offer you are promoting. Try to not over promote. It’s always best to be really helpful in answering questions, and not just post a link to your CPA offer. Be genuine in helping people while at the same time promoting your CPA offer. When linking to your CPA offer, use only the resource box to link to it. Don’t put links in the body of the answer, as it looks spammy.
Rinse and repeat
Repeat this process over and over again. Of course, you can try different niches and different CPA offers to promote. If you can master this process, you can really make good money doing this. It takes a little time and work, but its well worth it. It wont cost you any money and you can see results almost immediately.
Don’t spam the site by copy pasting the same answers over and over again. Your account will be deleted. And beside that, its not an ethical way to build a business. Yes, it can be a business! I mean, it is affiliate marketing, but in a different level using different resources. You are promoting an affiliate product (offer) and earning commissions. This is it! This is how you can make money using yahoo answers.
