Are you an avid blogger? Well, then you might already know that you can add an answers box to it. We call it Yahoo! Builder. What? You didn’t know? Well worry not, that’s exactly what this is about. Yahoo! Builder is one of the features that Answers and Yahoo! have created for you. To use it, you just need to log into your Answers profile and find a box at the bottom of the page which looks like this:
This module looks like this in its simplest version. It’s the one I like best because it’s easy to customize with color, width, font type, size and content. Say that the focus of your blog is music, with this template you can choose to display questions on that specific topic or with particular keywords to ensure that your Answers module will be in tune with your blog. Once you’ve tailored it to your liking, you just need to use the code we’ll provide and add it to your blog. ¡It’s easy!
This module updates itself in real time and shows the questions you’ve asked in Answers, making it easy for your readers to reply to them in a fast and comfortable manner. It provides you with another way of surrounding yourself with the people you choose, since it’ll be another way of showing Answers to those who share your interests and will help you keep those you care for around to answer your questions, support you within the community and create content that appeals to you.
This is the simplest module we have; it’s small and you could say that it’s a direct link from your blog to Answers. You can add it wherever you want, and you can tell anyone who navigates your site to join Yahoo! Answers and answer your questions. It’s up to you, so what are you waiting for? Tell your friends and readers about it and get the best answers to all your questions!
Already have it? Or perhaps what you’re still missing is a blog for you to customize and add your very own Answers module. If that’s the case, don’t worry. That’s another topic we’ll discuss some other time so that you too will be able to show off what you’ve been doing on Answers all around the net. If you’re already a blogger, then it’s time for you to try out how these modules and how easy it is to create them. Remember, all you have to do is log into your profile and all the instructions you need will be waiting for you.
Let me know how it went!
