Have you ever typed a question into a search engine and found yourself directed to Yahoo! answers?

Simply put, Yahoo! answers is a site where people can find answers to their questions. Chances are you will do a quick scan of the replies and chose the answer which comes from the expert source as the one to take note of.

One of the best reasons to write a blog is in order to position yourself as an expert in your field. So why not take the next logical step and join in by posting answers to other users’ questions in your area of expertise!

How will this bring traffic to your site?

  • Readers can visit your Yahoo! answers profile where you will have a link to your blog or website.
  • As I mentioned in the opening paragraph Yahoo! Answers ranks well on search engines.

So start using Yahoo! answers to position yourself as an expert in your field. All you need to get started is a Yahoo! email and well crafted answers to people’s queries and you will soon be on your way to being recognised as the niche expert that you are.
