    Yahoo Answers AND Questions - Wanted (complete service).

    I need someone to ask various questions, under some accounts - and then answer them under a decent (level 2 or level 3) account.

    The work will be for various subjects, from TV streaming and Movie streaming sites etc, and more

    - For example, ask a question like: "Where can i watch heroes, season 4 online for free" - and answer under a good account (like a level 2 or level 3 account) quoting our site.

    Please bid for 20 questions, and 20 answers - we will give you the questions, you just have to post them (proxy recommended, as is clearing your cache! )

    PM me only please!!!

    You might want to see what Matt Cutts has to say about this practice.

    So as not to distract I'll put the video in a different thread, but "sock puppet marketing" is a Google "don't".

    Hi, I understand and respect your point, however this is not meant to influence google rankings, in fact most of the links I will get posted in the answer will be via tinyurl or other such url shortener...

    This is meant for traffic, and not to try to raise Google serps. The site is a rinse and repeat type site, that I don't expect to gain any Google rankings at all really.

    I know what you mean though, I would never look to do this with a 'quality' site! - Cheers for the headsup tho

    Okay then... bit.ly

    Then other point is, that this is really a mini project, trying out a few different techniques at traffic gen, without relying on Google at all. In fact, for the target site, I am actually thinking of blocking googlebot via robots.txt... thus comments from Mr. Cutts are not really that relevant in this case!

    I must admit, usually I follow ethical practise pretty strictly... this little project is really top prove a point to someone I am having a heated debate with.

    Your input is much appreciated tho

    Google isnt known for asking whether your intent was to game their system if they catch an activity they've gone to the trouble of producing a video to discourage. If flagged by Google it will have disastrous results.

    Just as many forums know tiny URLs often mask disallowed links... that cant have escaped Google. Hard to imagine their spiders cant follow short URLs to see where theyre going in a millisecond. Regardless, the post above indicates they aren't allowed on Yahoo Answers anyway. That should raise a red flag as to the probability that this is not a new practice or a preferred practice.

    Bottom line as the Google video shows, you are not the first to discover the idea, and if they are sending out warnings that they consider it problematic there's a fair chance they're also watching for it. That said, you dont need my permission to engage in what may be a painfully educational experience, just thought being forewarned might help. Happy motoring.

    Cheers again for the headsup Rob

    It won't be a painful experience at all, as I am not going after Google rankings, and don't really mind if this site is in Google's index or not - In fact, I am going to actively discourage Goog from indexing the site (robots.txt block).

    Cheers for the comments though as if I was wanting goog indexing, I would do well to take the advice you have given, and maybe others reading this will be forewarned

    I have plenty of sites with decent rankings in Google, this is a little experiment in living without Google, and also proving a point to someone else (as expalined via PM!)

    Thanks again
