    No! Unless if google finds out that you paid to yahoo or to those 30 people, which you didn't, of course ;)...

    It's been my experience, that participating in Yahoo Answers is good for you and your site. First, you help other, if you are answering. 2nd, you can drive traffic to your site based on the quality of your answers. And 3, a link from Yahoo is as good as they come. Google will not look poorly at Yahoo answers when it comes to your rankings. Although you are trying to 'game' the system by getting people to answer questions and have your site as a resource, I don't see a problem, provided the answer is relevant, and helpful to whatever niche your site is in.

    I would say probably not.

    These are no follow links but it will help you get a good mix of no follow and follow links. I think it more of a problem if you only focus on building do follow links.

    NO. Its would be if you take so many paid links or automated submission.
