Yahoo Answers to add YPN to Allow Users to Earn Income

Posted By Darren Rowse 24th of January 2006 Yahoo Publishing Network 0 Comments

Very interesting news today out of the YPN camp that Yahoo Answers have a feature ‘coming soon’ that will allow those contributing to it to add their YPN ID in order to earn money off the ads on pages that they contribute to. Jen has the scoop on this writing:

‘There is no word yet on how exactly this will work, other than it is tied to those who answer questions. And there are currently no ads running on Yahoo! Answers, so it is unclear if ads will be added, and clicks on ads would be shared with answer contributors. Yahoo! Answers also works on a point system, so earnings could potentially be earned in accordance to the number of points earned in the system.’

In a sense this is very similar to what systems like Squidoo and Gather are doing – inviting people to create content on their sites in return for income.
