Quora is a Q and A website where people ask questions about anything and everything.
To generate traffic, look for every question related to your industry, and answer those questions.
To find the questions, just use keywords in the search box. Then answer every question you can to build up your authority and grow in popularity.
This alone will generate some branding and leads, but likely not enough to make it worth your time.
However, you can kick things up a notch with a slightly different approach. Rather than answering every question from scratch, here’s what you can do:
Take snippets from your own blogposts where you’ve already covered the topic. Paste these snippets onto Quora as your answer, along with a link back to the original blogpost.
This will most definitely drive traffic to your site, but you might find you have one problem: Quora might get confused and think you are plagiarizing yourself. I’m not kidding. If this happens, they will ban you until you tell them that you’re pasting your own material there, and then they will unban you.
Yes, they do sometimes make this mistake, but at least they are open to correcting it.
There is a way to make this system work even better, and that’s to use the above method – answer questions with snippets from your blogposts and link back to your original post – while adding fresh content, too. It doesn’t have to be a lot of fresh content; just something new that does not appear on your blog that is for Quora readers only.
To get plenty of upvotes, here’s what you do: Find the most popular questions in your niche, the ones that tons of people are reading. Now find the most popular answers within those questions. Read those, and then leave your own answers that are more in-depth than the other answers, adding new information those other answers don’t have. Be sure to include the link to your blogpost as well.
Bottom line: Adding value is how you get a ton of traffic from Quora.
And if you don’t want to write answers, you can also run ads on Quora. It might not be quite as effective as leaving answers, but it is faster.
