Even a relative newbie knows that back links are essential for generating traffic.  Some of the easiest methods of traffic generation are often the most overlooked.  Such easy sources are neglected as they are sitting right in front and we may never realize the effectiveness due its obviousness.

One such traffic source is the Yahoo Answers.  It can be the most positive methods of driving targeted traffic to your niche sites.  A yahoo answer is also absolutely free to use.  With over 21 million users in US alone and over 90 million worldwide, Yahoo answers is the largest knowledge sharing community on the Web.  Answering specific questions can also bring laser focused traffic that can result in instant conversions to sales from your niche websites.

Setting up Yahoo answer account is very easy at answers.yahoo.com.  You can already use your yahoo messenger or email ID if you have one.  Once the account is created and you are logged in take some time to fill out all the information in your profile as you would like to share.  People like to know a little more about the person who is answering their questions and this builds a brand persona.  It is recommended to add a photo.

Once you are done with the basics, you can see the categories listed on the left of the page.  The questions are categorized and grouped according to the subject matter.  Here is where you can choose the questions that you would like to answer.

Before rushing into answering questions, consider what the relevant website you are going to promote is.  After all you are answering questions to create and nurture some kind of business.  You have an opportunity to promote your website through the secondary box where you may include the "Source" or your web URL and direct people to get more information about the subject or topic in question.

It is important that your answer should be as thorough as possible to address the question.  As a large number of people would be responding to the questions, if you are able to answer with some authority you are likely to be voted the best answer.  This will help build your presence and increase the chances of people clicking through to your website.

Yahoo Answers could help establish your presence in the search engines as often the answers are spidered by the search engines and if you have enough keyword density you may even feature in the top ten or the first page of the search for the particular keyword.

Yahoo answer is simply the most cost effective link builder as well as traffic source and it could be very enjoyable and even addictive as you get into the answering mode often helping people while achieving your business objectives.
