We like to use Yahoo Answers to scout out topics in our industry for future blog posts. If someone is asking about it, others people are probably also interested in the topic. So, in effect, we answer Yahoo Questions, but on our blog, not the Yahoo site.

Links from Yahoo Answers are nofollow. Needless to day, SEO-wise, it won't give you any benefits. But posting comments in it will boost your traffic especially if your answer is chosen as the best one.

In my opinion,yahoo answers plays a roll of marketing rather than optimizing. You can gain traffics here, but for seo benefits, I think it's few.

Try it out and see what happens - make sure you have something that is measurable like a tracking code something telling you where they came from. Then you will know if it works for you or not.
