Best Way to Make Money Online with Yahoo Answers

Maybe you use Quora to find out what questions people are asking. This is a great resource. But, did you know that Yahoo Answers may be just as useful? I'll describe an article that shows the best way to make money online with Yahoo Answers, although I do have a bit of a caveat with that when you read about it.

In this article, I'll discuss an article I found that shows how Yahoo Answers can be used to generate significant traffic to your website.

The article also discusses several other resources I found that may help you with your marketing efforts.

Marketing Developments for the Week of January 18, 2020

Big data is prevalent in several industries, including marketing. I have found severals with it as the core topic. This topic is part of how you can drive traffic to your website with Yahoo Answers (more on this later).

Other Topics of Interest (several related to Big Data)

Video marketing is a hot topic. You probably already know it's an aspect of marketing that is growing. But, if you aren't using it yet, perhaps the article I included will convince you.

Search Engine Land

User Intent - I've been seeing a lot popup on this topic. Apparently, marketers believe that Google is going to beef up its search engine algorithms to check for this. However, an article in Search Engine Land is not completely sold.

Search Engine Land Article on Keyword Intent

This is not to say the topic isn't important. It's just that keyword research isn't going away. Do try to incorporate user intent a bit more as you'll read in the article.

Business 2 Community

Improving Your Video Marketing - if you've been putting off the creation of marketing videos, it's time to reverse that. Too many people who are using the web are viewing videos. That means, if you don't publish, you don't have access to those people.

Business 2 Community Video

Most people put off creating videos because it's too hard to produce quality videos. At least, it used to be, before this resource became available. The video that you see above was made with it.

Honestly, the excuses for why bloggers aren't creating videos are simply not relevant anymore. You can even take a PowerPoint slide and add some text onto slides. Then, save the presentation as a video and upload it to YouTube. You can embed that video onto your website.

ReadWrite

How to Do Keyword Research for SEO - this is a decent article on keyword research. Lately, my searches on the topic haven't yielded results that are worthy of inclusion.

What stands out with this article is the coverage of Rank Brain. This is a concept that every blogger or marketer should gain an understanding. It's not that it's difficult. It's just that most people aren't familiar with the term.

Forbes

Big Data in Marketing - a Forbes article discusses the past, present, and possible future of big data and how it relates to marketing.

The video points out about the 2025 prediction from the article. Take a look, and you'll see that it is a significant statistic.

Entrepreneur

Do You Know the Marketing Skills You'll Need? If you don't, this article will help you with some. It should come as no surprise that data science in some for will be important.

Entrepreneur marketing skills

This could mean learning a bit of coding. But, don't worry. There are many tutorials, and you don't have to become an expert. Check out this article to see more about what skills you should learn.

Marketing Tech News

Data Analytics and Marketing - one area that is expected to grow substantially in 2020 is the use of data analtyics in marketing. Tools will likely emerge that will combine sources from different data stores. You'll need more than Google Analytics, although that will be part of the mix.

HubSpot

Audience Targeting - just the name alone should tell you how important this item is for marketers. If you cannot target your audience, you'll be shooting in the dark. Makes sense, no?

Hubspot Audience Targeting

The HubSpot article explains the concept, but also discusses why it's important. If nothing else, the article should plant some seeds in your brain that you need to handle this sooner than later.

Smart Data Collective

Combing Big Data with Yahoo Answers for Traffic - I probably built this one a bit too much in the video, but I stand by the production. Here is where the caveat that I specified comes into play. I don't feel as though the author did the big data aspect of the article justice.

Smart Data Collective Big Data

I feel as though the author either doesn't understand what big data is, or he is using it as a way to draw attention to his article, i.e., he's using as a buzzword.

Why I still felt the article is relevant, though, is that not too many people are using Yahoo Answers as much as they used to. But, they are still using it. That means you can use it as an opportunity for exposure to your brand. The Smart Data Collective aricle does offer useful tips on how to approach the platform, irrespective of whether the data is "big" or not.

Conclusion

The list of resources are by no means extensive. In fact, it's rather tiny. But, these are websites that are helpful and hopefully you have found a few of them useful.

I'd love to hear from you in the comments below (or on the YouTube channel). Feel free to share this here and on YouTube.

Hey Dini, thanks for your comment. Yeah, the time for videos is now. PowerPoint has made it pretty easy to put together decent videos. It opens up a world for people promoting their brand too. Of course, you’ll want to add value and not just use videos to sell.
Best Regards,

Driving traffic to my website has been one of the biggest challenges for my online business so far. I’ve tried just about everything with minimal success. After reading your article, I am going to adjust my video marketig strategy and use Content Samurai. I was using Explaindio, but it requires a lot of time to edit videos. Content Samurai looks a lot more user-friendly. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Jim, nice to meet you 🙂

I had not thought about using platforms like Yahoo Answers to get website traffic. It should have been obvious due to how many times I have followed links to other websites myself!

Thanks for sharing your info, I’m going to start doing this regularly!

Hey Edward, thanks for the comment. Video is huge and I find that Content Samurai (soon changing to Vidnami, BTW) lets me crank out quality videos in little time. I have noticed they are started to gain traffic, too. I’ve used Explaindio in the past. It isn’t a bad product, but I agree that it takes more work. Good luck on your traffic generation!

Hey Laura, thank you for your comment. Yahoo Answers is another website where bloggers can gain insight into what people are looking for online. While it may not have the pull of Quora, it still has enough draw to be useful.

Driving traffic can be difficult, I am currently struggling with it on my site. But there are many things that you can do and you do need to be patient. This isn’t something that can be achieved overnight! Social presence is really important. As is building trust with your audience and I think you have this. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Jim!
Great article, it boosted my resolve to get video marketing back on my list. I have been using Final Cut Pro and gotten quite good at it, but no matter what, it takes a long time to make a good final edit. Looks like Content Samurai is an option to get something out fast, and then I can spend my time on Final Cut Pro for stuff that needs a finer comb.
Awesome!
Cheers,
Tom
