Do you use Yahoo Answers? If so, why?

I'm sure there are lots of people who genuinely ask questions, and helpfully provide answers there. But, I also think there are a lot of users who go there just to spam.

Some create more than one username, then ask a question under one name and answer it (with a link of course - their own in all probability), under another of their usernames.

Is it a spammers' paradise, or is Yahoo Answers still of some value?

the value is that you can burst out your links fast I think and thats the reason why people startet spamming that much.

yahoo answer was really a big help in site's traffic...

but it's hard just to leave you link when you answer if the person who asks don't ask for source :D ...

you might get banned on yahoo answer :D
 
I'm not that fond of using answer sites to drive traffic to my site simply because for me, answer sites are made for Internet users that needs an accurate and fast answer(s) regarding their questions/concerns. Answer sites like Yahoo! Answer can provide traffic for our site. It is a good place to leave our links because of its millions of users but I suggest that we should only put/leave our links to those questions that are related with our website or to those questions that might help the person who's asking. :)

well as long as the question is relevant to your site, it's really good that you leave your links on your answers....

but if the question is not relevant and you leave your link you are a spammer :D

also i think helping others find what they want can also give traffic to your site, because, you can suggest your site as your resource :D
