i was just wondering if anyone can make money from answering questions on answers.yahoo.com...i ask this because sometimes when i am research in Google to find ways to earn online some of the search results would lead to yahoo answers.com and on the left side of the page i see where i have 104 points but i don't know exactly what these points are for...do you know anything about this?and how can benefit from using answers.yahoo.com?

The points on Yahoo cannot be redeemed for money. Yahoo Answers doe snot charge or pay, you can however make money answering questions on Mahalo. You have to have liek 150M before you can cash out though (equal to approx. 112 USD)

Nup. Yahoo!Answers is not a money making site. The points are there just to gain 'LEVELS', which let you earn more points by answering more questions, etc. Checkout the official guide under; answers.yahoo.com/info/scoring_system

Yeah, points are just there for the users to 'show off' how good they are at Yahoo!Answers... nothing more or less.

Unfortunately, I don't believe that you are able to make money by using Yahoo Answers. This really is a shame too because it really would be a great platform to be able to use as a way to make revenue. I don't know if there is anything that is similar to this on the web that can be used as a way to make money. If you do learn of something that is similar to Yahoo Answers that helps you to make revenue please let me know.

Hi, Yahoo did not pay for answering on Yahoo Answers! The points it provide shows your experience and expertise on yahoo answers. The more points you get, the more famous you are. But there are a few sites where you can post your answers and earn money. The one i know is MyLot.com

I have tried to look at the site but I could not figure it out how payment is done. I am not so sure if payment is given to each question or reply. Maybe other mylotters will guide us regarding this topic.
