    There was a time Yahoo Answers was a good source of traffic for webmasters but I doubt that you can get much traffic from there any more. But there are lots of sites which are very much like Yahoo Answers. And they like Yahoo Answers get a lot of traffic.

    Would answering questions on these sites so you can sneak in a link to your site when you can be worth it or would it be a waste of time?

    You can still do that but the site may not allow you to put your own link below it just so you gain a backlink of some sort. What kind of questions are you targeting to answer? Are there people searching for your keywords? If none then that is a total waste of time

    It's true that these sites have their best days behind them but if you are prepared to spend maybe half an hour or so composing some stock responses which could be relevant to all types of questions then it could be worth devoting a little time each week to answering these questions with your cut/paste answers. You'd need to do a little keyword research, I expect.

    Yahoo answer is a reputable website but there is a possibility that you can get targeted traffic through answering questions and suggesting your site as a hub of information to the users.

    Still you can get traffic from question answer websites. There is a website quora.com that is a great source of traffic. Its wrking better than yahoo answers these days.
